“Average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Average food, good service and nice (but noisy) atmosphere. Frustrated bar tender wouldn't bother make a blue cheese stuffed olive for martini. The delightful little hostess was a plus. Rolls at table are more like doughnuts..,.not what I want with a steak. I go back again but not too on my list. Mon Ami Gabi (across the street) better

“Great atmosphere and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Great place to hang out after work in Reston. Parking right around the corner and lively bar. The dining booths for 4 were cosy with a great choice of wine and food. Some local friends of mine said it was the place to be and it was. The starters were not that exciting but the main courses were much better.

“Classic Steak and Seafood Restaurant in Reston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Visited Jacksons recently on a business trip to DC. Interior atmosphere of restaurant is classic in style of a diner and large selection of booths for dining. Daily specials offered selection of seafood, fish and steaks. Cost for two for dinner with drinks was approx $75. so it was a little more expensive then expected.

Quality of food was above average, atmosphere is open and inviting. Reputation in the area is that Friday nights are quite a popular spot for after hours.

“Very Enjoyable, great service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Have been here a few time and have taken out of town guests and each time the service and food have been very very good. Prices are reasonable an wait staff knows the menu well and makes good recommendations, which I like. The wait time is reasonable even in peak times and it is great to stroll thru the Towncenter after a nice meal. It does get pretty noisy when they are busy as the sound bounces off the hard surfaces and makes it tough to hold conversation, wish they could do someting about that. Enjoy this place, I know you will.

“Good, if forgettable, food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Great service, nice décor. Makes you feel like you are in a class place. Which is almost true if the food were a bit better. Everything is good. No one will have a bad meal. It is just that this is a part of a big chain and the food has the look, feel and flavor of line cooking. Again, this is more than OK food, but still no spark of individuality.
