After a long day of travel, we were treated to a delicious meal at Jacmel Inn. The fried Brie was great, but rather small to share. Seafood pasta had plenty of crab, shrimp, etc. and Hubby's steak was superb. Nice wine selection both by glass and bottle. We were too full for dessert BUT Hubby needed some ice cream. The staff complied with a smile... And so did we:)

well used to be great years ago, recently and recent past, not so great. Had fish last time I was there, it definitely was not fresh. The veggies were over cooked, the salad limp from heat.

“My Neighborhood Place For Gourmet Food”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

When it comes to restaurants in Hammond, Jacmel Inn is a diamond among lesser jewels. Housed in a an old , stately structure of a southern home, Jacmel has a homey atmosphere. The food is top notch as is the service. I'd say the style of the offerings range from Cajun/Creole traditional to perfectly prepared American classic comfort foods. Be careful at the bar if you find yourself there at happy hour! The cocktails are generously mixed to say the least!

Jacmel Inn is a classic dining experience, great for special occasions. It is pricey but the food and atmosphere are both terrific.
