The food here is stupidly overpriced. It was $110 for an order of king crab legs and $44 for a dozen charbroiled oysters. Two other entrées were similarly exorbitantly priced. Obviously, people are willing to pay it because the place was full. But it’s not a place I can afford to go to often. And for those prices the food quality should be better. My oysters were small and overcooked, chewy and not at all juicy.

New England Sea Scallops entree including the accompanying vegetables and seasonings was excellent. The Seafood Chowder was also delicious. Eating outside was pleasant enough,...don't know what the atmosphere would be inside. Wait staff was attentive without being overly so.

Jax always exceeds my expectations! My husband and I went to dinner to celebrate our Anniversary. We started with some hand-crafted specialty cocktails and their house Oyster shooters. For appetizers we indulged in the always perfectly-cooked Calamari and the PEI Mussels. Moving on to the entrées I was blown away by the Sea Scallops dish with Celeriac Puree, Roasted Cauliflower and Turnips with Guanciale, Arugula and puffed Quinoa. My husband was equally impressed by the Maine Lobster Roll with Herb Dressing. We almost skipped dessert entirely but the House-made "Cello Flight" caught our attention and we couldn't resist! Highly recommend.

Jax has improved since the last time we went there pre-Covid, more than a year ago. I have been going to Jax since it opened and in recent years, the portions had gotten smaller and they stopped serving bread, but had some okay tasting bread that you had to ask and pay for. But last night, they served us their great bread again (for free) and the portions were great. The service was excellent. It's nice to see Jax back in the swing!! Love that restaurant.

We had to wait 20 minutes for our table, but after that, it was a terrific experience. We each had an appetizer and special cuts from whole halibut (the collar and tail). Every bite was a delight. And they marked my birthday with a freebie Key Lime Pie - something I usually go out of my way to avoid because of its typically cloying sweetness, but we were persuaded by the server and OMG was it good. Service was perfect, the level of COVID-related precautions was exemplary, and overall ... highly recommended.
