Jackson’s Steakhouse, located right in Pensacola, is the elegant, sophisticated restaurant you’ll want to visit when a fine meal is in order. It’s an exquisite location with beautiful décor and outdoor dining during much of the year. It’s known for its incredible steaks and chickens, but the location has a lot to offer, even for those with special diet needs such as vegetarian and gluten-free needs.

This is a refined restaurant, a location that’s quiet and dimly lit during the evening, making it ideal for a romantic dinner. Its staff is welcoming and quite knowledgeable about the menu but also about the wines available. With special events taking place throughout the week and during various times of the year, there’s always something fun happening here.

The menu is where the real experience comes in, though. This is not a location for the faint at heart or the light eater, especially with a huge selection of steaks and chops, including bison rib eyes, New York strips, and a perfectly seasoned Delmonico. The menu also provides a range of deep-dish sides, perfect for any Southern cuisine lover. That includes everything from roasted Brussels sprouts and smoky bacon to savory corn pudding. Finish off the meal with an intense dessert drink or handmade dessert, prepared fresh for you.

There’s much to love about the elegance of Jackson’s Steakhouse. It’s a location where you can have a quiet conversation with a loved one or celebrate an anniversary in style. Check out the constantly changing seasonal specials and wines, too.

A few of our menu favorites at Jackson’s Steakhouse:

Tomahawk Rib Chop
There’s nothing small about this dish. The Tomahawk Rib Chop is juicy and full of flavor. Choose from sides, such as the freshly made scalloped potatoes or cauliflower.  This chop – which weighs 40 ounces – is probably one to share, but is well worth the experience.

Steakhouse Charcuterie Board
This is the ideal starter with its Spotted Trotter cured meats, including lamb and beef sujuk, house-made preserves, and tangy balsamic grainy mustard. The black sorghum and Calabrian with capers help to make this an over-the-top tasting plate.

Cointreau Duck Breast
Full of flavor and perfectly cooked, this duck breast is paired with Anjou pears that are caramelized just slightly. The fig-Cointreau syrup adds an extra level of sweetness to the dish. What really completes it, though, is the roasted butternut squash rice grits – they are even gluten-free. This signature dish is one for those seeking a decadent dinner.

Barbara’s Brandy Alexander
This dessert cocktail is one that people come to Jackson’s Steakhouse for on its own. It’s made using Korbel brandy and crème de cacao that’s mixed into vanilla ice cream with a sweet grating of fresh nutmeg on top. It is decadent and just the right level of sweetness.

Bacon and Oysters
If you like a bit of spice with your oysters, try this dish. It features Bill-E’s bacon on top of fried gulf oysters. The spice comes from the Tasso aioli that’s provided with it.

For those shopping at Seville Square or visiting Bartram Park, Jackson’s Steakhouse is located minutes from the area right off of E. Main Street It’s easy to get to with nearby parking in a walkable neighborhood.

Insider Tips:
– Jackson’s Steakhouse offers a variety of special, seasonal events. This is a very good time to visit for entertainment, special dishes, and seasonal favorites, but they do change often.
– If you’re visiting the area and looking for a non-tourist destination, this is it. It’s elegant, but locally sourced and made with attention to details, not just rushing guests out. Weekday lunch is the ideal time to come for a slower-paced experience, too.
