Jackson's is part of the Great American group of restaurants. They serve American fare which is well prepared and served in generous portions. Service is always very good. If you are in the Reston Town Center, this place is worth a visit.

Love Jackson's! We almost always order the salmon and are never disappointed. They are excellent at preparing seafood in particular. Servers are attentive, gracious. Even the coffee is beyond restaurant quality, and a smooth end to the meal!

I have been to Jackson's several times for various occasions, many times "just because". Always had a great experience, staff is super attentive, food is delicious and atmosphere great all around. My husband and I love it!

A little noisy but the food was good and so was the service. We shared a steak salad and that worked out well. The noise was enough that we had difficulty hearing our server.

Jackson’s is such a go-to whether we bring our children or go out for dinner & drinks. Thanks again for a fun evening with good service.

They are not required but I’d recommend having one if (when you call) they let you make one. Waits can get long at this restaurant.
