My mom and I were here when we first arrived to Tampa. It was our first meal upon arriving and the food was absolutely delicious and arrived super quickly! We returned a few days later and brought another guest with us because it was quick, easy and very good.

Amazingly fresh seafood. We tried the grouper, the red snapper, and the crab cakes. Everything was good, but you have to try the crab cakes!

There were less expensive menu options but I tried the scallops and thai filet of snapper. It had tiny grains of black rice which was ridiculous! Why bother? Fish was great a generous scoop of steamed rice would have been more appropriate.

We stood up in front of 4 hostesses for about 1 min and none of them acknowledged us. They even looked at us and nothing. It was 2:37 and they said we had to wait until 2:40 because they had to make a change to the menu. We decided to not to wait and leave because of the service.

Restaurant next to the hotel I stayed at (Westin). I ate there a total of 4 times and each experience was consistent from check in to check out. Staff was very friendly and prompt. The food was delicious! They have a fantastic cocktail menu. I highly recommend the 'Dark and Stormy'. The Pastrami Burger is outstanding if you like hamburgers.... More

We went for sushi and drinks.. loved our table outside by the water. Beautiful atmosphere along Riverwalk. Sushi was excellent, esp the lobster roll. Service a bit slow but we did not mind because we we enjoying the evening. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Other menu items we saw come from kitchen looked phenomenal as well. Great spot!

This local hot spot, tries to maintain it's reputation by forcing you to wait 30-60 minutes when there are scores of empty tables. It is all most impossible to get your waiter, since there table are spread all over the resturant. They only seat a limited number of people per hour, even when the have lots of empty tables. Don't... More

A group of us enjoyed Sunday brunch at Jackson's. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was beyond compare. We sat outside overlooking the water and couldn't stop drink the mimosas. What a fun place!
