Do not buy or encourage anyone to buy a gift certificate from the Kaiser or Jackolope Restaurants. They will not honor them for Happy Hour or Early Bird Meals they force you to use it for the overpriced Dinner Menu.

4 of us, no one liked their food. Salads were good. Ahi Tuna was good, sides weren't. Pastas were not tasty. Not a good night. Service was ok. Doubt we will return.
