I love Nashville originals week where local restaurants show of there goodness. I had been meaning to try Jackson's and this seemed like the perfect week to do it. We arrived at 6:30 and 2 of our party were already there and had ordered drinks and fried pickles. The server brought fried tomatoes instead of fried pickles. It was fine... More

As average as it gets, would really only recommend if there is a wait at the other restaurants nearby.

While the location is a pain, the restaurant does have free parking for 1.5 hours which is more than adequate time to enjoy a leisurely meal. The service was fast and correct. That is always the first signs it is a good restaurant. I ordered the shrimp and grits and a to go order of the Ruben. First, the shrimp... More

I've been here several times and have never had a complaint. Never had to wait too long on my food, all the food is delicious. Great beer and cocktail choices on the menu. Friendly staff keeps me coming back.

Just ate there with some friends and enjoyed it. I ordered the Reuben Hash which I thought was fantastic. The staff here are very friendly and attentive, the wait time for our food was a short one.

We had a fantastic meal here a couple years ago so when we finsished our early show at the Blue Bird with friends who'd never been to Nashville before we popped in to Jacksons for their meatloaf - the menu had changed, not a problem...but it seems so has the quality of the food. 4 out of 5 of our...

This was our last-ditch effort to eat in Nashville after lines were too long at Biscuit Love, Pancake Pantry AND Fido's. The place was empty on a Sunday at prime breakfast time, and they offered brunch, so we stopped in because someone eating outside said the food was good. The food WAS good. I ate every morsel. I was hungry.... More

This used to be a fun place with decent food. I don't know what happened. A group of friends met for dinner around 6pm on a weeknight. I thought it was odd that, although the colleges were back in session, the place was nearly empty. Our server was very friendly and attentive and did her best. The happy hour goes... More
