Had a crabmeat appetizer which was very good. For a entree we had a Chicken dish a Scollop dish and a mixed seafood over pasta. All three dishes where excellent. For dessert we had a Lemon cake and a chocolate peanut butter cake which where excellent as well. I would say start to finish one of the better meals I’ve ever had out. Will definitely be returning.

We sat for at least 20 minutes before our server came to take care of us. The other servers could have been friendlier. Our waitress was nice. Overall experience was good we would go back.

At a time where other restaurants are sacrificing quality and courtesy, Axton’s is making the workforce shortage look easy. Our server was an absolute delight and the food, as always, was excellent. Our friends had never been there before and I believe they will return. Thank you for a great night out.

My wife had fish which was bland and I had pasta which was over cooked and really not flavorful at all. Over seasoned in the wrong places and under seasoned in the wrong places. It was definitely not worth the $200 bill.

The restaurant is a small storefront but doesn’t feel like it when inside. My only complaint was that my meal was served well before my husbands. I was done eating before his arrived. Not sure if it was the wait staff’s mistake or kitchen error but for the prices that should never happen. I will definitely go back and give it another chance because it was the best meal I have had in a long time.
