Anniversary dinner. Very romantic setting. Appetizers where great. Filet was so tender. Highly recommend.
My 5th at the restaurant and it just keeps getting better. I am always happy with the selections on the menu that is constantly evolving and just keeps getting better
This place is a hidden gem. Alex our waiter was great!! He fit it with the whole group and all of our shenanigans!! Would recommend to anyone. Can’t wait to go back for dinner.
The atmosphere, especially the lighting, was very nice. The food was truly outstanding for a small town restaurant. The daily soup was corn and eggplant. Very good. Had the daily fish special, grouper, which was also very good.
Food and service were great. Great atmosphere. Quiet. Thumbs up all the way around.
Always enjoy Jacmel. Christopher waited on us and was very pleasant and down to earth. Food was great as expected; never any surprises with the quality.
A wonderful place for dear friends to meet for lunch! Delicious crab cake appetizer. One of us had crab and shrimp pasta which was very good. Nice broth and veggies. Three in our party ordered the burger. They were not asked how they wanted them cooked, and all came out extremely rare with the middle being raw and, to them, inedible. They mostly ate the toppings, although found the bacon to be very fatty. Very disappointing! They would have enjoyed them had they been cooked to medium or even medium rare. Service was good, except for server neglecting to ask for doneness of meat. Will try again when back in Hammond. It’s a lovely place and other dishes were good.
We went for lunch on a Thursday and all three of us had a very nice meal. We shared crispy fried oyster appetizer, then each of us had a different entrée (veal parmesan, Jacmel burger and pan fried grouper. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the entrees.
The restaurant is a throwback (in a good way) with classic wood decorations, walls and floors. The noise level was very low, allowing us to have a pleasant conversation. I'd suggest it would also be good for a business lunch.
I’ve loved Jacmel’s my whole life but over the last year this restaurant has changed management and thereby declined in customer service and ambiance. Food is very good but the charm is lost when simple services (like a “no separate checks” policy) and building maintenance is overlooked. Hopeful things will be turning around with the new management .
The crab cake appetizer is the best we've ever had with lots of crab and little breading. Great atmosphere, good food and wonderful service.
We were there for graduation. Food was amazing. Staff was great. We will be back.
Dinner for my youngest daughter. She graduated from high school! Great way to close the book on this phase of life. The waiter was extremely nice. Food was excellent. Served hot and timely. Thanks to Jacmel Inn for being a part of a wonderful evening!
Friendly staff, excellent food, and quiet ambiance.
Great food but not cheap. Flavors were incredible.
I made my reservation at least 2 weeks before the set date (which turned out to be a great thing, since we kept changing the reservation details). Even so, when we finally did make our way to the restaurant, we had an extra person who had been unaccounted for. The staff had no problems, however, and simply set out an extra chair. The service was attentive and kind, and the food was absolutely excellent. We tried some out-of-the-box appetizers, an we were all very impressed. Thank you, Jacmel Inn.
We haven’t been to Jacmel Inn since last year because we moved. We thoroughly enjoyed coming back-Jerry, at the bar, and Sarah, our server, were awesome. Thank you
Upon arrival the placed looked very cozy and elegant we were greeted at the door and asked if we had a reservation and they sat us down and the waiter was very inexperienced did not go over your specials like we had hear another waiter tell other customers. also it was my wife's birthday she did not ask what was our occasion and it was on our reservation. food was good but they def need work with their staff. and we were seated in a area were they constantly said corner. what is that when you take your wife to a romantic birthday dinner. not good at all and was not happy at all!!
Jacmel has provided an excellent dining experience for over thirty years. The service is attentive, but not overbearing. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone interested is superb cuisine in a romantic setting. I'm a foodie who dines out often at top-tier restaurants. I've never been disappointed at the Jacmel Inn in Hammond.

The event was our 39th anniversary. The noise level was a little high but was put on a table where most of the noise was buffeted. The food, drinks and over all setting was great. We had a very good dinner and romantic experience.
Our church had given us a two-night getaway to Michabel Inn. The innkeeper recommended Jamel for dinner. Everything about the place was excellent!
Wonderful food and service in a very nice but unpretentious environment.
The place was cozy, and very quiet. We almost felt the need to whisper it was so quiet. We had the Jumbo lump crab cake (only one to an order) to start. We ordered the Salmon and Fresh Gulf Fish. We asked our waitress what the Gulf Fish of the day was. When she returned she said the fish of the day was called Gulf Fish. We tried another waiter who informed us it was Sheephead. Be sure to double check the fish of the day... I would recommend you order an appetizer or a salad with your meal, the portions are medium to small. Although the restaurant was cute and the kitchen has a since of humor we would not attend again.
As always, the food was good and as always, the service was slow.
The ambiance was great, the food fantastic and Sara was excellent. We are traveling the country and this is the best dining experience to date.
Not as good as the last time we visited. The meal was bland. The noise level and proximity to other diners was uncomfortable. We’ll go back again and hopefully have a better experience.
We were assured when we called the restaurant prior to our reservation that it is kid friendly. It is not kid friendly, except possibly in the outside area. You could hear a pin drop in the actual restaurant. Our waitress was even whispering to us when taking our order. The food was nothing to write home about. The steak seemed like good quality but everything was incredibly salty causing it to be nearly inedible.
Great service, love the ambiance, and delicious food.
Food was Wonderful but service was extremely slow. Waiter was friendly and explained it was her first night. The restaurant was not full so we didn’t expect a problem but even the drinks took a long time to get. This is my favorite restaurant in the area so we will return.
Jacmel’s is excellent! Best restaurant On my way! the North Shore.
Great place, good staff and food is always spot on. Great ambiance too. Love the place
Lovely restaurant in an elegant setting conducive to business discussion or an intimate meal.
Fantastic food and service. Great date night or special occassion place to eat.
Food and service were great. Can't beat the atmosphere.
Jacmel never disappoints. Great food, great ambience, a classy dining experience second to none.
Beautiful building, good wine, great food and amazing hospitality.
FOOD WAS GOOD AND OUR SERVER WAS EXCELLENT
GREAT AMBIANCE........QUIET SETTING AND LIKE THE FIREPLACES
Very lovely restaurant. Just as I remembered it when I went to SLU.
Very nice atmosphere, cozy fireplaces. Nice outdoor lighting. Food was very delicious, not long waiting to be served. Waitress very helpful with menu selections.
Great atmosphere and attentive staff, main dishes came out luke warm at best but tasted good. High price small portions, very limited menu.
The food was excellent! We have never been there on Sunday's for lunch. Very nice atmosphere for the holidays! We'll be back on New Yr.'s Eve!
