Great atmosphere, the venue was perfect for a team dinner after traveling. Menu had a good variety, steaks were cooked well and appetizers were good. Staff was very attentive and helpful.

Jackson's is very good for lunch. The menu selection is creative, and the food is very well prepared. The booths are comfortable for up to 4 people. The only challenge is that Jackson's can get busy during the week, and there can be a wait.

We had a group of 5 with an infant. The staff was very accommodating to seat us and was prepared to deal with an infant. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The menu has a wide variety of choices...almost too many! Everything sounded so good it made it difficult to make a choice. Everyone was happy with their eventual choices. I... More

Jackson's is fun, lively place to stop for a drink with your co-workers or for a delish dinner. The crab cakes a fabulous with a choice of one larger baked or two smaller patty's that a cooked on both sides to perfection. I have tried both & prefer the two smaller version. Same serving amount.

Picked this as the meeting spot with a friend on business from New England area. It was pretty empty when we arrived around 5pm but the whole place was hopping 2.5 hours later! Gary took good care of us at the inside bar - wine and dinner. I am sorta local (Alexandria) but would make the trek back out here... More

Business dinner mid-week, place was busy but was seated reasonably quickly with no reservation. Drinks and food were all good, lots of options and good servings. Staff was semi-friendly but seemed rushed but we were talking business so not an issue. All in all good drinks food and service and would go back if in the area again.

Service a little slow but it was very busy. Drinks were refilled regularly without asking which was great, and the salad was the best I've ever had. Chicken, Avocado and Beets - try it!

My wife and I stopped in Jacksons for a late evening dinner and drinks at the bar. The service and drinks were excellent. The food at the bar was good. I tried the grilled cheese with bacon and was pleasantly surprised at the taste. We will definitely return to the bar and try a sit down meal in the restaurant.... More

We had a group of 8 with no reservation and still got seated in about 15 minutes. Service was great and the food was delicious. The salads are hearty and make a wonderful lunch. The prices are reasonable.

Stopped here on the way to Dulles Airport to catch an evening flight. Was worried about having enough time. The staff was so accommodating. Our service was impeccable and super swift. Had the Halibut special which was amazing! Don't skip the bread basket. It was a dream. Can't wait to come back.

A nostalgic nod to mid century Americana and comfort food classics and some unexpected twists (a la sushi) in an upbeat 1940's dinner house.
