Great service and atmosphere. Food spectacular. No kids menu, not really a place for kids (I would think). If they are still running the promotion, Go for "Prime Rib Tuesdays". I stumbled across this on their website and Tuesday Nights they offered 16oz prime rib for 19.99. It was outstanding and had enough leftovers for 3 days! Enjoy you meal!

Kate and I were in Pensacola for a weekend and decided to have dinner at Jackson’s Steakhouse based on the strong recommendation of a friend. We told some local friends we were going there and they also joined us as they had heard great things but never been. The ambience is nice. High ceilings, interesting light fixtures and decor. The restaurant was a bit too loud to allow for comfortable conversation across our table of five, but toward the end of the evening it quieted down.

Our server’s name was Laura and she did a wonderful job. She shared with us her experiences with the food and what the most popular dishes of the house were. Her welcoming and inviting personality helped make our evening very enjoyable.

We shared the Wagyu beef carpaccio with horseradish aioli, shaved Iberico cheese, hydroponic greens, mustard oil, and 18-yr old balsamic vinegar reduction. It was very good, but not outstanding. Nothing wrong with it, it just didn’t really stand out.

I had Maine lobster stuffed with crab meat stuffing. Very good, fresh lobster, fresh crab meat, excellent presentation, plenty of butter for dipping and overall an excellent meal…

But Kate enjoyed the meal of the night, if not one of the meals of the year. Kate had an eight oz., wet-aged, grain-fed, rare filet mignon that was one of the best steaks either of us had ever had. Despite being located in a seafood mecca, steaks are truly the reason to go to Jackson’s.

We enjoyed collard greens and mashed potato family style sides with our friends, who had two other steaks and another stuffed lobster. Everyone in our party had wonderful meals that exceeded their expectations.

I had a fantastic bread pudding and Kate enjoyed a key lime phyllo purse, which was an interesting take on key lime pie that while being a very good dessert, didn’t really bring the key lime punch we were hoping for in the heart of key lime country.

All in all, Jackson’s was a wonderful meal and if we are ever in Pensacola again, we will return for more of Jackson’s phenomenal steaks.

This is the second time we have eaten at Jackson's in Pensacola. The first time, my wife and I had the most tender steak we had ever eaten. You could literally cut it with a fork. That was a couple of years ago. So this trip we made a special effort to plan a night in Pensacola just to eat at Jackson's again. Everything was just as good this time around except I would say the service was actually better. We had the Del Monico steak and it was tender and delicious. Potatoes and Mac and Cheese were excellent also. Some people might find Jackson's a little pricey but for what you get I think is well worth it. We plan on going back to Florida within the next two years and will definitely plan another stop at Jackson's.

This restaurant is very upscale. It is pricey, but the food is fabulous and the service is excellent. My husband and I split Turf and Surf of Lobster tail and Fillet, they were cooked to perfection. The steak was so tender it almost melted in our mouths. This restaurant rivals some of the finest restaurants in New York or Boston.
