“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

The service was great and the servers "tag teamed" and were very efficient and all very personable. Very attentive and obvsiously well trained. The food was very good; great variety on the menu. I had a grouper special with risotto and asparagus and it was very good. The cost was a bit high for the quality of the food. I would definitely eat here again and I'd look forward to trying some other dishes here. I liked the atmosphere of the restaurant, too.

“Reliably tasty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

When you have a craving for a juicy, perfectly executed cheeseburger , Jackson's has become our go to destination in Reston. Their service is always welcoming, the attention sincere and the food- hot and dependably satisfying . Drinks are inventive for those who seek something different but old standbys are comment ly executed too.

“Another winner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This group has a bunch of restaurants in the area such as costal flats and sweetwater. This one is very much in line with the rest. Great service and food. Everything on the menu is good. They don't take reservations, but you can call ahead when you leave the house.

“Tasty and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I've been to Jackson's several times. I've had a variety of dishes and a variety of servers. Everything has been outstanding. Their Lobster Bisque is well worth getting.
