Lunch - Fish and Chips with Jackie O Nut Brown, excellent homemade slaw and tarter sauce, chips are fresh cut real potatoes. I like to douse the fish and chips in malt vinegar and salt and mix the tarter sauce into the slaw. 5 stars.

“It is always the highlight of any trip to the area! If you like beer ask about growlers.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

We came on our trip for our honeymoon and visited twice. The pizza is amazing. The beer is great. They sell it by the growler to go as well so you can take it with you.

“The beer is good and...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

...the Rueben sandwich is a winner. The menu, in general, is a bit overpriced and the service is spotty. Who knew that standing around looking countercultural was in a job description...?

“Okay food, good beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

We stopped for lunch on a Thursday. I had the battered cod fish on a roll with cole slaw and my husband had the reuben. The rolls were fresh but very thick and hard to get your mouth around. My husband thought his reuben was tasty but my fish was really bland, plus I didn't like the cole slaw on the sandwich. It was very runny and any flavor there may have been in the fish ran onto the plate. The beer was very good however. We really enjoyed the Razz Wheat, it tasted very fresh. The service was okay too. The server was friendly and seemed familiar with the menu. We really like the idea of using a lot of local products and love that they use spent grain from their beer making process in their food. We will try Jackie O's again the next time we're driving through.

“Local Joint - nothing more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

I've been an Athens local for several years. Jackie O's is Ok at best. Mediocre brew - that they are the only major producer around does not make it good. Worst of all, pricing at this place is ridiculous based on the quality of food. Very poor, slow service. However, their pizza is excellent. If you have to eat in Athens, look elsewhere. If you have to drink in Athens, look anywhere!
