We had originally planned to dine elsewhere, but plans changed and were we ever happy that they did. Started in the bar waiting for a table (you can call ahead too) and Jane enjoyed a delicious Cosmo. Great staff and lots of friendly people out for fun. Once we were seated, we noticed immediately the attention they pay to customer service. Supervisors and managers on the floor but not intrusive or hovering - just making sure the dining experience is top notch. And it was. Very inviting decor and an open kitchen, so you could see the action there if you wanted to. We started with their homemade bread basket, with their sweet creamery butter and could have stopped there. Hands down, THE best bread i have ever been served at a restaurant. Went outside our comfort zone and tried the Deviled Eggs with Spiced Pecans - absolutely delicious and a chopped salad that was again, way above the mark of your standard restaurant salad. We split the Sauteed Shrimp and Chicken that Jane ordered (my Prime Rib was sold out : ( and it was anything but an also ran on the menu. Topped everything off with the Warm Flourless Chocolate Waffle - wow! Great dinner, great experience. There was care put into every minute we stayed and every bite we took. And compared to the other fine dining restaurants we tried in Town Center, a far superior value. Bravo Jackson's!!

It was recommended to me to take my team to eat at this restaurant. It was packed and they did not take reservations. As we waited at the bar, the place was buzzing with chatter, music and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Servers were rather dizzy, simply could have just been an off night, but regardless the food really was amazing, and the wine prices were very reasonable. I would go again for sure, still so much to eat on that menu.

If you like deviled eggs even a little, order this appetizer when you order your drinks. Not only are the pretty eggs delicious, but the glazed bacon is divine. ($8.00) After that protein nosh, I ordered the roast chicken salad ($14) with apples, spinach, nuts, avacado & the mustard viniagrette dressing on the side. (There were also bits of the glazed bacon & 1 deviled egg.) My friend had the grilled jumbo shrimp over orzo because "it's always so good". Service was very attentive & pleasant. The noise level was moderate so that we could carry on a good conversation.

We took my Dad here for dinner and he was impressed with the attentiveness of the staff and servers. The restaurant is very clean and there are three areas to relax- the dining room, the bar area, and outdoors. You can watch the action in the kitchen and the menu choices are diverse and delicious! The bread bowl has various choices- the hot rolls (much like a donut were a favorite.) I was thrilled to return and eat the vegetable platter for my dinner. The medley of flavors was incredible!
