“Couldn't get what we wanted, but they were very nice about it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We went with family on a Sunday night. When we ordered, they were out of our first choices (prime rib, lobster roll) so we had to select something else on the menu. They were super nice about it, though, offering us a free appetizer and dessert, so in my mind, they definitely made it right in the customer service department. It was just a bummer since we really wanted those items as our entrees. The wait staff was very attentive and the food we did receive was very tasty.

“Crowded like a party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Very crowded and noisy at the bar, hard to get the attention of the bartender at times, food was good, very clean environment. Not the place to have a quiet dinner at. More like a party place. Location is excellent, very close to public parking place.

“We locals eat here every week (no kidding)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

It's so good, it's a staple of our diet. Everything on the menu is delectable, but our favorites are the steak waldorf salad, the chicken, the jumbo shrimp, and the vegetable platter. The lemon meringue pie and chocolate waffles for dessert are out of this world. Try the Nantucket Scramble at their Saturday or Sunday brunch! Call ahead to get seating 15min before you arrive to cut down on your wait time.

The only downside is that the happy hour bar crowd can be loud and obnoxious (unless you like that), :D but you can mostly avoid that crowd once you're in the dining area.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Went with a group of friends to Jackson's last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent and the food fantastic. Although very crowded due to it's popularity, we were seated quickly and served promptly. My dinner, the prime rib, was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
