Stopped in on a Friday evening for the first time. Sat on the outside covered patio and it was beautiful watching the sunset during dinner. The food was good. Tried the grilled wings, fries, a some of us had burgers. No complaints from anyone. We also had a few drinks. Stick with the beer because the daquiri's are VERY weak. Disappointing especially after a long day I wanted a real drink. I could've ordered juice for a lower price if that's what I wanted. The ladies giving out the free rum and cokes were definitely an added bonus. I would recommend this place to others as it is worth it. Stay late and enjoy the bands

Mothers' Day brunch was a disappointment after reading reviews. Buffet stations were crowded together & the food was mediocre at best. Have had better choices & quality at other restaurants for less than $35 Jackson's charged. That being said, the atmosphere & server were wonderful.

Fair steak but pricey for the cut. Nice décor. Friendly staff. Vegetables were nice. The sides were creative and the food was nice.
