“Not good...disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Stopped by for lunch while visiting Cape May. Seemed to be a popular spot, but apparently only for tourists. Our sodas were flat (we sent them back but new ones were no better). The food was average at best. The turkey panini was large but did not taste good. Chips were stale. Floors in the restaurant were sticky and slippery - did not seem clean. On the positive side, our waitress was friendly and did her best to compensate for the restaurant's shortcomings.

“Awful Food , Bad Service, Not Clean and bathrooms didnt work”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

What more can I say, its all in the title.
The food was nasty. Tasted old, poor quality and made no sense. For sides I was given options like applesause and coleslaw. Ive never seen sides like this but in a nursing home or hospital. The service was poor, the bartender could not make a drink to save his or her life, The bathroom didnt work. This place might be going out of business or something because I couldnt beleive how bad it was. The only positive is that they had outside seating.

“Relaxed, no frills and great !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Great burgers and the best broiled flounder I found in Cape May ! I have been to every seafood place in town and this is surprisingly where I found the best flounder. My husband and son love the burgers here. It's never a long wait, you can wear anything and you can sit outside or in !

“Opened before they were ready for customers”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

They were open during our May visit, but didn't have half of the things we wanted on that were on the menu. Even after we ordered what they thought they had, they came back to say one of the items was 86ed. We said to give us the check for the drinks and cancel anything else we'd ordered, if there was anything they even had available.

We've had mixed experiences at Jackson Mountain over the past ten years, but overall they have gone downhill in the quality of both service and food.

“Great Brews on Tap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Have eaten here several times. The beer selection is always good - some micro and macro brews to please all. The food is above average in my opinion. Get a seat outside and watch the frazzled families go by!!!! Awesome people watching spot as it is in the heart of shopping for Cape May.
