Located at 400 South Palafox Street in the heart of downtown Pensacola, Jackson’s Steakhouse occupies the ground floor of a revitalized 1860s-era building that originally housed H. Pfeiffer & Company Mercantile. The building overlooks Plaza Ferdinand VII, where in July 1821 General Andrew Jackson accepted the transfer of Spanish Florida to the United States and raised the American flag in Pensacola for the first time.
The French-door-arrayed entryway of this historic building, which is set along a beautiful, tree-lined park, invites guests into an elegant dining room that boasts handcrafted, inverted-hickory-branch wrought iron chandeliers by New Orleans French Quarter master blacksmith, Thor Thorson, and showcases a magnificent mural created by noted New York artist Joe Radoccia. From the cypress planks to the burlap walls, the designer’s commitment to historic preservation and attention to detail are evident in every aspect.
Parking for Jackson’s is available along Zaragoza Street and Palafox Street, or at any convenient downtown parking lot. Some spaces (indicated by signage) require pre-payment at a nearby parking terminal.
