We had a very nice sunset evening dinner with friends. This was my first visit to Jackson's but it will not be my last. The view of the bay is very nice and the surrounding area provides a nice place to walk around before or after dinner. The taste of the food was amazing. I rated it excellent because the taste was great but the presentation could be stepped up a little. Let's face it presentation is love at first site. Server seemed to struggle answering questions about the food product and had to ask for assistance twice in explaining the menu. Thankfully her co-workers were pretty sharp. By far your friends will appreciate that you have picked a delightful spot for entertaining.

This was my third time coming to Jackson's and it has been consistently good each time. The seafood is fresh and it has really nice outside bar with outside seating that fits the bill for a nice night! It is located across a short bridge from the convention center and a couple of larger hotels. Great choice if in the area.

Our family enjoyed a dinner and lunch on our short visit to Tampa. Good food and really enjoyed the open air dining after a long Spring Break drive!
