    I’ve called off and on over the last 3 months and no one ever answers the phone. Finally went to the website where it says reservations are mandatory. Got there on time and the place was empty except for 1 couple finishing up and 1 staff member. We left.

    We had to wait to long for our food. We got at our table at 5:30. We had to finish our meal while we did our bingo cards. That was not cool. You need to do something to spend service up. Thank you 😊

    Wednesday night is bingo night and it fun to eat dinner with friends and then play a couple of bingo games. Reservations really help the restaurant as they will have the right number of waiters to serve you if you have reservations. come join the fun.

    The restaurant decor was very plain, with view golf course. Not well promoted., and not an inspiring Happy Hour. However, the French fries were the best I’ve had.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Jax. There was live music, good food and the server was very nice. Their menu is limited and our order took awhile to be served. I think they could use mor help which is a problem everywhere. We were not in a hurry so it didn’t matter.

    Nice outdoor patio, great friendly staff, but service was very slow. Also, they need a better wine selection, which they said is coming. We’ll be back. I think service was probably just unanticipated demand.

    The food was excellent and very reasonable priced. The serving sizes were very generous. Even though they are short staffed (as are so many restaurants now), the service was quite adequate. The servers were all very pleasant and accomodating to ou requests. They were very, very busy while we were there and yet remained pleasant and helpful. The outdoor dining space is attractive. The inside dining area is a little bland and could use a few pops of color.

    Before COVID we (2) ate there and the food was outstanding! We ate outside and it was charming. It seemed to be a very popular place. We ate on Friday night and it was "OK." We ate inside because it was so cold outside and the restaurant does not have heaters outdoors. That's OK. There was plenty of room around us!

    As the location is just across the street, it's very convenient . It's unfortunate that they ran out of prime rib ,as they weren't crowded at all. I also suggest they invest in outdoor heat lamps for January and February desert conditions after 5:00.

    Went on Taco Tuesday. Ordered a chicken enchilada and a chile rellono. The chicken enchalada was a chicken breast with a piece of cheese on top of it wrapped in a flour tortilla and warmed till the cheese melted. Would not go here again. While Taco Tuesday prices were fair think on any other day price are high for what you get. A lot of better placed to eat all around the resort

    Food and service were great. Ice-cream on dessert menu, but none available. Drinks were too expensive - $12 for a Bourbon Old Fashioned! Patrons were few, and most gone by the time we finished our appetizers (7:30p), and no new patrons arrived while we were there. We "closed" the place at 8p.

    We ate on the patio and the music was not too loud, just louder than it needed to be considering where we were. It cools down in the desert after dark. Heaters might be a nice consideration. Wait-staff was great , attentive , but not overly. We only ate soup and salad , however the Clam Chowder was remarkably good. As a biased east coast Chesapeake Bay seafood aficionado, this was certainly comparable to other chowder and bisques I have sampled.
