Jackson's on George, George St, Sydney

Jackson's on George, George St, Sydney
Thursday 25 May, 2006

I haven't visited Jackson's on George since I was under-age trying to sneak into the nightclub upstairs. Today, was lunch with some work buddies and yes, we are all over-age now!

Jackson's is owned by the J & J O'Brien Group, who also own and manage the Malborough Hotel and Jorden's Seafood Restaurant among others. The location is directly opposite the Four Seasons Hotel on George Street and Jackson's has seating outside as well as huge doors that open up to bring the outside inside. We decided to sit inside facing George St so we could watch the world go by.

As we entered, there were some workmen finishing off some repairs to the banisters, so with drills blazing we sat down and hoped they would give it a rest sooner rather than later. There are menus on the table and you order & pay at the bar. The menus cover a wide range of lunch options - burgers, wraps, salads, pizzas, pastas and meat dishes.

I opted for the chargrilled steak with garlic mash & salad and my work buddies selected the combination paella and lamb shanks. We were provided with a table number and the meals were delivered within 15 minutes. Another staff member arrived at the table to offer cracked pepper which seemed odd as you have to go to the bar to order drinks and food. The food was pretty average - the paella was a little dry, the lamb shanks were not cooked through and the meat did not fall off the bone as expected and the steak was OK.

When the wine was delivered our waitress held the glasses by the top instead of the stem - this is a pet peeve of mine and should never happen.

Jackson's is an average experience.
