“Food by the water”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

The foon was below average and the staff didn't seem in the least bit interested. We arrived at 4.52pm, we had a table booked for 5.00pm but were told to wait by the bar as we were too early, surely we could of been sheeted and given some menus . Next time we go to Tampa for a concert we will find another restaurant.

“Amazing bar and restaurant”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

I have been to Jackson's a few times in the past years and each time it is amazing. Everything on the menu is fantastic. The service was pretty good, but that varies on how busy the night is. If you are going during a busy time of the year (Gasparilla) make sure to have reservations. The bar has an amazing view of the marina. Make sure to grab a drink there and relax for a few hours.

“The place to be”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Was there for a conference and came back to Jackson's for lunch and dinner. Great views, great service and the food is perfect. The sushi and sushimi is just excellent. My colleagues tried grilled fish and steak, but also excellent. Forget all other restaurants.....try Jackson's.
