Jackson's Place Is Real Cajun Southern Cooking

Jackson's Place is the very best Cajun and Southern food you'll find in the region.

This is a restaurant that's focused on it's food--but it also has an extensive wine and beer service.

You may want to start with one of the "bites" that include the classic Gulf Shrimp Cocktail, BBQ shrimp, grilled oysters, and even grilled vegetables. Or choose more than one and make it a tasting meal.

There are the classics of New Orleans gumbo, seafood etouffee, three styles of jambalaya. And there are burgers and po'boys plus great sides.

Take a former department store building built during the Art Deco era, fill it with antiques, and make it a place for art, music, food, and all other good things.

That's only the beginning of how to describe It's Showtime and the 731-741 Pacific Avenue building.

Downstairs is the Speakeasy Cabaret that hosts music and other arts events.

On the main level is an array of antiques and collectibles, many of which are truly one-of-a-kind (as in literally the only one left in the world).
