Visited Jackson's for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Parking was easy and they validated parking (just remember to bring your ticket with you). We were immediately seated. On that particular day it was raining, so outdoor dining was not an option. However, even from inside, there was a scenic view of the water & convention center. Portion sizes were generous. The waitress was friendly. Would recommend this restaurant to others staying in the Convention Center/Harbour Island area.

The location is great and if its a nice night, sit outside! The staff are friendly but I found the service a bit slow. Good menu and wine list. A bit pricey, but not outrageous. I ddi not try the sushi, but many of my colleagues did and really enjoyed it. My wedge salad was large and fresh. The stacked grouper was tasty, but would have been better if it was server hot. The bar was very busy.

We were in town waiting to board a cruise ship the next morning. This restaurant was close to our hotel. Glad we tried it! Food was great. Beautiful location on the water.

Attended a corporate party at this location and really enjoyed it! Although we did not eat off of the menu due to it being a party, the food that was presented was good. The location is the best very pretty and the atmosphere is great. Full bar, but they could not make any frozen drinks which was disappointing.
