Jackson’s advertises itself as a fine dining establishment and says groups are well-accommodated. I beg to differ. We ate here on a weekday with a group of 18. Our party had advance reservations. Admittedly, we were given a private room that worked well for our meeting/lunch format, however that was the end of the good news. The menu selections were pretentious and overpriced, the food mediocre. Service was abominable. Since we decided to order a caesar salad thinking that would be hard to mess up and a dessert, we tried to order the dessert at the same time as the salad. They didn’t want to combine the salad with the dessert. Meals were slow to arrive, and, of course, by the time the server came around to let us order the creme brulee, most of the others in the group had finished eating and were asking for checks. We and a few others waited and waited for our desserts, until many at the table had gone in search of their checks and paid their bills. When the dessert arrived, it was tasty but served cold. Not at all what I expected. There was another long wait for our checks, which finally arrived after almost everyone else had left. I should note that the restaurant was not busy. Only two or three tables were occupied at the time we were there. Caveat: Avoid this snobby place with a party of more than two.
