Welcome to JAM ,
Enjoy a warm and relaxed dining experience whilst you indulge in the tastes of North Queensland . We like to explore our regional and seasonal produce and create contemporary cuisine without compromising the purity of flavour.

The JAM menu offers quick bites for a catch up through to our full a la carte selection. We also have a great special luncheon menu that is always popular.

As the sun sets over the CBD and Castle Hill sit back and relax over dinner at one of the window tables or enjoy the views of the river and CBD lights on the terrace. For a romantic degustation dinner we recommend one of the private booths,


Our wine list offers over 100 wines ranging from small Australian producers through to stunning international champagne and wines.

Matt and the team look forward to welcoming you soon.

    We felt the tasting menu was nice but a bit tasteless and under seasoned. Should have asked for additional salt and pepper. The wines were perfect and delicious

    Upon arrival, our table wasn't ready, and we had to wait more than 20 mins to get to our table. We weren't offered any menu while we were waiting. Once we did get to our table, the waiter seemed to forget about us and we had to chase him down to place our order. Long gaps between entree and main, and many menu items were unavailable. Food was average considering the price.

    It was our 1st time and lived our dining experience at jam corner, we did not give 5 stars for service as we had to ask where our drinks were and our meals had arrived. Mains and dessert were excellent. Management and our waitress were lovely and knowledgeable when we asked questions. Would certainly go back.

    One of the best resturants that townsville has to offer. Food is always different and changing with the seasons and isn't just the basic steak and chips like every other restaurant does.

    The food was amazing and the service was perfect. I had the gnocchi for entree and it was perfect! Next up was duck for main. It was absolutely divine. And to finish chocolate lava cake. Everything was perfect.

    With Jam Corner being an award winning restaurant i was excited to dine here. I was actually not overly impressed with the menu and there was no WOW factor. To start I ordered the goat curry wonton, which were ok but they repeated on me for hours after. My friend ordered the Sichuan calamari, which was so small I think there were 2 bites of calamari. For main, after viewing the website before dining I had chosen the prawn and calamari pasta, but upon seeing the menu the waitress explained that this particular option hadn't been on the menu since last year. I ended up opting for the eye fillet. My friend ordered the Pork chop. Both options ok, but no wow factor as we were hoping from an award winning restaurant.

    My Steak, broccolini and mushrooms came out cold, side of chips came out cold, my wife’s curry was cold. All in all very poor. If it wasn’t for the service of 2 lovely ladies, new girl and another girl with red lipstick and dark hair we would have left. Really not what we expected.

    The service was excellent, the ambiance was nice but plastic cafe tables brought what could have been a beautiful dinning experience with tablecloth/linens down to a cheap feel. The goat wonton was dry and needed salt, the crab tortellini was dry and again bland and the sauce was very very bitter, the townsville Zuchini flower again bland, the duck course was lovely and well seasoned and the jus was flavorful and the crème brûlée was beautiful. The wine pairing was very generous but the wines were not fantastic. So on a while we just wouldn’t dine at Jam or take friends there, we would definitely rather to head over to their big sister Bridgewater, every course and every wine was a culinary masterpiece and the atmosphere was much more elevated and the price difference was negligible.

    Started really well, very impressed by our waiter Tristan, as the night got busier, the service slacked off a bit like they needed another waiter. Time between entrees and main was too long (1 hour). Food was excellent both in flavour and presentation. Will definitely go back and just hope the night we went they were short staffed.

    Food was well presented but flavours and quality weren’t what they should be for the price. Great service when they forgot a side and had it cooked in time to still eat while finishing our main. Their lava cake was way over cooked - basically a tepid muffin.
