Bad everything else. The food is average, the service is awful. Went to the host, never even greeted me. Just grabbed menus and said "right this way". Again no mention of anything when we were seated. Waited 20 mins for a server to come get our drink order. Waited almost an hour to get our food. Burger was bland and... More

Across from the convention center , Jackson's is a beautiful cafe on the water . The view is spectacular either inside or out . The food was delicious and freshly prepared . The portions were perfect for lunch with efficient service . Clearly there was a chef in the kitchen !!

The view and service were decent. Food left a little to be desired and the happy hour was sub par. I didn't recommend returning.

The food was good but the view was great. After a day of work with a client, it was nice to sit outside, relax and enjoy a cool breeze off the water.

The food is great and there's always a breeze on the deck. Clean and comfortable. If you don't try a Tampa roll then you are missing out! Great Gelato place around the corner downstairs. Can park at one of the many parking garages around or at the Westin for a nominal fee. Great for a bite and drink before a... More

Jackson's Bistro offers a casual dining experience with excellent food and service. You can sit inside or out on the patio. Our food was prepared just as we requested. Prices are a little on the high side but in line with other restaurants in the area. Dessert was fantastic! I would highly recommend the creme brulee!
