Went with some friends to Jackson's the other evening. It was noisy and fun! The place really rocks! I'd say it's the biggest party spot in the Bay area. There's music, dancing, and a wide variety of cold beer and other really refreshing cocktails.I like the Gasparita - kind of a local spin on the traditional Margarita. Food is great... More

The best serivice we received in Florida in 2016 was from Darian S, he delivered our food promptly. The service was above any other and he described the meals we ordered in detail, no surprise. The food was excellent and priced right. Would highly recommend this Jackson's to anyone. We didn't have a reservation so the young lady made up... More

Enjoyed fresh sushi and highly recommend it. The view was very beautiful overlooking the bay. It was a bit warm outside and they had great seating inside as an option.

For a place specializing in sushi, we were surprised at the absence of sake options on the menu. And the drinks we ordered were not great. Our sashimi and entrees were very good but there was nothing to make them special. Overall, an enjoyable meal, though, in a great location. It's especially a nice walk if you're staying at one...

Was in Tampa on business and was looking for a good place to eat that was close to our hotel (Marriott Waterside). This place was recommended by the hotel and I must say the food was very good. Between my travel partners and I we all ordered something different and no one was disappointed. We enjoyed dinner outside overlooking the... More

The venue was what you would expect of a downtown restaurant... clean and smartly decorated, a great view of the water and complemented by a professional staff. There are your two stars. Jackson's Bistro Bar and Sushi failed in the kitchen. Maybe they were having an off night I don't know, but what was delivered to my table was definitely... More

Jackson's has a perfect location on the waterfront. Great place to kick back with a cocktail and watch the action unfold. It is the best place to watch the Gasparilla Pirate invasion. They also have a great brunch buffet with a large number of items to chose from - you need to reserve for Mother's Day 6 months in advance.... More

We stopped by Jacksons on a rainy night for a late dinner. The food was good- it took longer than expected for it to be served. They do give you complimentary breadsticks while waiting.
