Book your next event with us
Great service. Food was delicious. Excellent presentation of the food. Great tasting.
My ongoing craving for Jax is relentless until satisfied. I make reservations for my birthday every year. However make it a frequent go to spot. Special request of a booth in the bar is always answered. Service is outstanding and the food , phenomenal. Our waitress this go round provided perfect service. Thanks Jax!!
We had the shrimp cocktail, a variety of oysters, and snow crab legs. The oysters were great!! The shrimp cocktail was good, however the shrimp had been over cooked making them very firm. The most disappointing part was the crab legs. For the price you’re paying you don’t get very much, I believe the crab had also been over cooked, the meat seamed unusually stringy and difficult to crack the legs properly. I’ve eaten a lot of crab legs and never struggled like this to get the meat. This was our first time here and unfortunately probably our last. The price for what we received just wasn’t worth it! Disappointed to say the least.
Awesome service as always. Definitely going back.
This was our first visit to Jax but we will definitely be returning. I took my husband here for his birthday and we had a wonderful time. Mark, our server, was personable, professional, attentive, and extremely knowledgeable about the menu items (not always the case at some eateries). The appetizers, cocktails, and entrees were all so good that we finished EVERYTHING and for once, did not have a doggy bag to take with us! Excellent choice and I would highly recommend you add this restaurant to your "To Do" list!
It was a quiet night at Jax’s. It was a very pleasant evening.
The meal was excellent from the appetizer to the main course. The service was average.
My dinner at Jax was one of the best meals I have had in a while. I ordered the Moonfish, which I had never had before, and the flavors were out of this world. My kids had the lobster rolls, which aren't on the actual menu, and lobster mac. They also loved theirs. My husband had the halibut and thought it was delicious. The service was great, and I can't wait to go back in the future.
Excellent ambiance and service.
Charged us additional for substituting a side. The staff was okay but seem a bit off putting. I would try again and see if we caught them on an off day.
My wife asks are we eating at a club or a restaurant with this music. Maybe ok for a bar but not for a quality restaurant.
Always great food and top notch service!
Jaxx is one of our favorite restaurants. There was a large party the night we attended. Because of that our service was sub-par. Our server kept apologizing, but it was frustrating.
The prices on the snow crab per 1/2 pound went WAY up and they said they may be phasing crab legs off the menu. They also took my favorite dish off the menu. They did make it for me this time, so I was able to enjoy it...but will they be able to next time???
Our waitress was perfectly nice but she would walk by our table and not check on us and took about 20 minutes to get my glass of wine. She also didn’t know what Prosecco was and told me the mimosas were made with Chardonnay, so there needs to be some training done on the wine side.
Always delicious food. Excellent service and a calm, atmosphere even when it's busy. Never feels like you're being rushed. Highly recommend.
The menu has changed from what is on the website - and we understand the market and availability. Service was very slow, and frankly for a restaurant on the Plaza, it was well, meh...
Friendly service, people checking in with you was better than normal. Frankly - would not go out of my way to go there again, been there done that, not wowed.
Reservations was an issue because I was told I did not have a reservation however, we were seated right away.
Manager stopped by the table a couple of times throughout the meal. Great service
The food was terrific. The service was friendly, prompt, and professional. We enjoyed it very much and recommended to others to visit the next day.
Beer as cold as it can be.
The Tuna Nachos has a little more wasabi than needed. Crispy nachos and good amount of tuna but The wasabi ruled the flavor leaning the Asian sauces far behind. Not to order again unless the wasabi sauce is on the side.
The oysters always fresh and delicious.
The halibut lost is flavor with the base soup. I need to say that I order by mistake, las time it was on the grill and it was excellent.
It may have been an off day but the gumbo was not very good. That was disappointing because that a big reason why I went there. In general, the other food was good. We had decent service but it was slow at times. Some of the people in my party felt our server was annoyed with us. It took him a couple of tries to get our bills correct so maybe he was just frustrated in general.
Our server was awesome. Our main issue was the seating. The table they placed us at was really only large enough for 4, we had a party of 6. Very crowded table. A couple ladies complained that it was too cold, but the rest of the group was comfortable. Side note...their chowder is not like traditional chowder. Everything else was fantastic.
We had the chef's special, which tonight was the lobster BLT. It was amazing! The service was excellent. Loved our time at Jax!
Consistently great seafood in an upscale but relaxed restaurant and bar. We’ve been there several times and loved everything but the hush puppies. Friendly service, happy hour specials, good wine and cocktails list. Finish your evening next door at the Monarch for a perfect date night or girls night out.
Delicious dinner and Monday happy hour made it soooo reasonable!
We sat outside to enjoy a beautiful evening. Did not enjoy loud bar music being pumped outside.
Food, as always, was wonderfully prepared and wait staff attentive. Unfortunately, the background music so loud, the server didn't hear my husbands drink order correctly the first time and we had to repeat our orders several times for her to hear us.
We were not impressed. The food was greasy and not eatable. Sorry but we will not be back.
Great place to eat... solid selection of fresh oysters. Prices are reasonable considering the quality of the offerings. Would recommend.
Always Great food and Great service.
Will definitely be back soon.
Jax is always Great! Amber our server was wonderful and the Birthday treat at the end of the meal was the perfect way to end a delicious meal! We would recommend Jax to EVERYONE!
Service and food was outstanding!
The food here is amazing! The staff are well informed and make great recommendations.
For the price, I think I would recommend other restaurants. I just felt that the food wasn't quite up to par for the expense!
While the food was good, I wouldn't call it great. The ambiance was ok. We ordered the Hook, Line and Sinker. Good variety, above average taste but awkward to eat as it required standing to get to the top layer of the three-tier service. I would recommend people try it but there are a lot of places that are as good or better.
The crab boil was so goof and our waitress was very sweet, and efficient! If I’m ever back in KC, I wold return.
First time in, and had a great time! Food, service, and atmosphere was excellent. Definitely going back and would recommend to family and friends :) Thank you
Great service and delicious food. Awesome outdoor patio.
