My wife & I have eaten here many times. Service & food always great. We had a birthday party there yesterday for 16 people. Staff & mgmt were great. Brian recommended one of their pckgs. He said there would be more than enough food. He couldn't have been more correct. Service was exceptional (Michelle G). Although they were busy, we never waited or wanted for anything. We brought plenty of leftovers home. Everyone in party LOVED the food!! I would recommend to anyone without question. As a result, they now have new patrons!! GREAT job from entire team. I will continue to frequent as much as I can. Ribs & wings out of this world. Not a big fan generally but I couldn't get enough. Ribs are also good cold for breakfast. If you haven't gone, you need to go soon & often. Thanks again Brian & Michelle G!!
I just love the old-fashioned, relaxed feeling you get at the Jackson Inn like you are at home, or visiting a friend. The cheese steaks are awesome with Fred's Secret Sauce and you can find a wide range of people frequenting there of all ages. When they have bands play the place can be packed with room to dance. In the summer they sometimes fire up the grill to cook up the latest catch in the outdoor seating area. This is the kind of place for friendly people to come as they are, not fancy. The hours are different than the ones listed. I think that they open at 3pm now Tuesday through Saturday and go until 1. Oh, also, there's a package store attached on the side, which is actually the original restaurant that THE Andrew Jackson had visited. It kind of reminds me of the bar from the tv show, Cheers.
Personally, I'd have to say Alpha Pizza is one of the best local pizza joints in the Newport area. Their pizza is absolutely exceptional with it's thick crust and delectable sauce. Not to mention, the woman who works the counter, who I believe is the owner, is extremely personable which makes the whole experience that much better. Being a huge pizza fan, I haven't tried anything else on the Alpha menu except for their pizza; but the only reason I go to a pizza shop is for some slices of pizza. For a first timer, I'd recommend grabbing a personal pizza, which isn't too personal if it's judged by it's size, but it only runs a tab of five dollars which is a fantastic deal. 5 Stars.
