We hosted a wedding reception at Jackie O’s. It was a wonderful setting for the fun, causal event. The staff were all very nice.

Went there and put our name in for a table they said it would be a 30-45 min wait. We thought no problem we will sit at the bar for a few drinks. Over an hour later with a lot of empty tables we were...told it will be a little longer. We ended up ordering our food and ate at the bar. The bearded bartender was super rude! Probably will NOT be back!!More

My husband and I stopped here for dinner while vacationing in the area. I got the shrimp kale salad and my husband got the steak wrap. Everything was tasty, but I ordered a whole salad and it came with what I thought were 8 shrimp....They turned out to be cut in half, equaling 4 whole shrimp. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. We also enjoyed a flight of 5 beers. Highly recommend the place, I gave it 4 stars for the skimpy shrimp!More

The food and atmosphere are great! They have a great beer selection. I enjoyed the hazy IPA. The fish tacos were delicious. I highly recommend this place.

Stopped by for a beer. I had a Ricky and my husband had a Cool Beans. Both beers were yummy. Ricky was a clean light drink. Cool Beans had a beautiful coffee smell and finished smooth. Because of Covid the kitchen was closed and the...inside was only open to access the bathroom. We lucked out with sunny weather and a temperature of 73...strange for November but awesome for our visit. Can’t wait to go back once Covid is history.More

Jackie O's has been a rock solid option in Athens for over three decades. And now with COVID, their upstairs OUTSIDE eating area is certainly a great compliment to the fine food and service. Waiters and staff are very careful with mask and protecting their...clients. Food selection is quite good; not overboard in complexity but certainly well done. Still a great selection of beers and also hard alcohol to drink. And you can also eat inside now with the air con turned up high, lots of air changes per hour and plastic dividers now hung between tables for safely Still a great place to grab a meal or drink.More

While we're not interested in craft beers, we tried Jackie O's because so many folks had recommended it. We found the food good but quite average. Service, however, was extremely slow. Don't plan another visit!

They make a wide variety of beers, which were excellent. At least, what I sampled was excellent. The pizza was terrific, with lots of garlic. The Greek salad is legit and can fill you up. The only knock was that the burger was small. It...was tasty, but small. Still worthy of five stars!More

Thank you for your input! In the future, our Public House Restaurant located directly next door has a larger menu and may be more suited to your dietary needs. The Brewpub does have multiple vegetarian options though, including starters such as deep fried pickles, deep...More

My friends were raving about the Reuben egg rolls so we stopped in to try them (and a few plates of fish and chips) out. They might be the most perfect food to ever exist. You must try them. The fish and chips and the...drinks were also all solid. Nice atmosphere. Convenient to order at the bar and the food came out quickly on a Friday night!More

Stopped in Jackie’s on a Friday evening. The wait was 30 minutes, but well worth it. Our server was prompt, and the food was great. Get the fish and chips, it was great.

We love the reuben egg rolls, the burgers, the salads and really, everything we have tried on the menu! The locally sourced ingredients are what set this place above the bar.

Friendly staff, very helpful explaining the beer selection. I did not eat here but the food looked great. Very nice atmosphere. The raspberry wheat was fabulous.

Their fried fish was highly recommended and it was totally worth it. The service wasn't great when we came in. I wish the Stimson location offered more food selections because I prefer that one better. Will probably order the fish to go next time.

The service was spot on, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient without being overly friendly. We tried 3 beers, the Ricky was OK but the Mystic Mama and the Polished Silver were phenomenally good (took home 2 growlers of them). We did several appetizers and all were...tasty. The fried pickles were some of the best I've had (nice beer batter on very crisp wedges). The wings were pretty good but the Reuben egg rolls were fantastic! We also ordered the fish and chips...the fish was very good, same beer batter, the fries were OK. Over all I'd give a 4.5. Peices are a little higher than listed as above (more like $8-$20 an item) but worth the price.More
