Snuggled among some very popular restaurants in a trendy neighborhood I was worried we were going to spend a long time in a line. With a tight travel schedule I was thrilled to find this nice option that offered great breakfast choices.

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

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.

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.
