We went during KC Restaurant Week and the food selection was great and delicious. Also the happy hours specials were great.
We were in KC for the day from 3 hours away and I was really looking forward to eating at Jax. Had a great experience last year, love their fresh oysters. I had made reservations days in advance and confirmed the reservation. Unfortunately the host and hostess were not very welcoming and when I asked the hostess if we could sit at a booth, she said they were all reserved and got seated at a table without any views while all the booths were empty and people got seated in them shortly after. It may not seem like a big deal but it just struck me as odd and made me feel unwelcome. We had good service afterwards but my Ahi tuna bowl was about half the size of the one I had before and overall I was really disappointed. My husbands fish and chips were a bit soggy. This was my favorite place in KC for fresh fish but unfortunately won’t be returning any time soon. I don’t understand why people that are put in front of the house are not at least friendly or try to be a little accommodating. Jax, hire some people to better represent your restaurant! I usually don’t take the time to review restaurants but I was really disappointed in Jax.
It was a great experience! The food was very good and so was the service!
This was our first time. Food and service were great!!
Great food and service every time we dine at Jax!
Not our first experience at Jax but this time it was disappointing! Staff was friendly, waiter was absent often and getting consistent service was not possible. We were at a table near the raw bar and apparently every time an order came in and was ready for pickup a bell sounded similar to a ring camera. Very annoying.
Food was sub par and overly prepared. I ordered 6 oysters that are supposed to be medium sized and 3 of the 6 were tiny and should have never been plated , especially at $3.25 a piece.
This will be our last time to Jax.
Drinks are slow in the bar area, but food is excellent.
Fantastic Birthday, my son and I went in and the service, food and atmosphere were fantastic. Great Birthday experience
Oysters are always fresh and delicious! Music seemed to be exceptionally loud even for a Friday night. Love this place and will be back. Chris is the best server!
We had a great meal last night with our daughter and SIL, the specials were great, the steak was great and I personally love the poke salad so I had that after some fried calimari and oysters! The waitress was friendly, helpful, very attentive and really helped us have a great experience. We had to dash out to go to the symphony and they had our food to us fast and we made it on time. Another wonderful evening at Jax!
It was awesome! Food was amazing and service was great!!
Had NYE dinner here, the drinks and food were great! Service was good and everything came out really quick. We ordered the sea bass special which was some of the best I have had, I wish they had it on their menu!
Absolutely amazing food. The New Years menu was perfect. They have a ton of great non-alcoholic drinks and the service was exceptional.
New Years Eve dinner date
Great service, great food and would recommend!!
I expected parking on the plaza to be difficult. But when we walked in, our table wasn’t ready. Our server didn’t know they were out of mussels, they brought out my dates food before mine. The portions were very small for the price paid. The taste was good but the catfish was horribly bland. All in all will not try this again. Didn’t live up to the hype.
Excellent food and service. Laura was exceptionally knowledgeable about the menu.
Zac our server was very friendly and knowledgeable
Quality of food was great, but selection of fresh fish was limited.
Food was good not great. Fish was over coojed
The oysters were fresh and overall very good. The menu was short several items so we did not stay for dinner but we definitely come back if only for the oysters.
We were impressed. My 10 year old ordered the clams and spaghetti, he loved it. My husband myself and my 13 year old were interested in trying several things. We decided to order multiple appetizers so we could sample several things. We ordered the chargrilled oysters, mussels, ahi tuna poke, calamari, crab cake, cup of gumbo and a small wedge salad. All of the items were wonderful. If I had to pick a favorite I would select the mussels as they were superb. I didn’t get a chance to taste the clams as my 10 year old ate them so fast they were gone before I could ask. The Bangkok Fizz was an excellent drink if you find yourself perusing the cocktail menu. Excellent food and service. I would definitely recommend and would definitely return.
We had reservations for Christmas Eve, so it probably wasn’t a typical evening. Because of the holiday, there was an abbreviated menu for the night. However, we both found something on the menu to enjoy, and tried several of their cocktails as well (which were all excellent). The fish and scallops were cooked perfectly. Our waiter was excellent and service was perfect. All in all it was a great experience. We will definitely return in the near future.
Amazing prefix menu, seriously 10/10. Everything was prompt, cooked perfect and just super delicious.
We want to try the 5 course fish but I had gastric sleeve and can not eat that much. I called ahead and asked they told me no. So we ordered off the menu. We had margaritas that was way to sour and then I switched to sangria it wasn’t any better! What we ordered of menu was really good but way overpriced IMO. $40 for 4 scallops and $40 for a small cube of fish?! Our bill was $135 for what we got! No sure why we left a tip because our waitress wasnt seen much a d didn’t serve our food she took our order and gave us the ticket?! Will not return! But what we got was very good!
We really enjoyed the experience. We will think of it for special occasions.
The most wonderful food. The server was exceptional. The value was unbelievable. Max far exceeded our greatest expectations.
Alex was a great server. Food was absolutely wonderful. Lobster Mac and oysters!!!
The crab cake and drinks were good but the quality of the rest of our meals was poor. Our check was $239 and we left disappointed.
We had a great time! Great food and service.
Fun birthday dinner with my daughter.
Very little lobster in lobster roll and in lobster Mac and cheese.
Oysters and caviar were delicious and the server was awesome. I always enjoy dining there.
Our server was the bartender Lara and she was outstanding. The only negative was the annoyingly loud music; couldn't carry on a conversation without shouting across the table. Guess some staff member was hearing impaired. Again, service was outstanding and Lara is the best!
Dinner with 6 of us. This was my first time here. The food was just ok, the service was really good. For seafood restaurants, there are better places i.e. Bristol or Eddie V's.
We tried Jax for the first time and unfortunately were a bit disappointed. They were out of a lot of things including lobster which was a top choice on our list. The appetizer was good (calamari) and the hush puppies were excellent. However, the entrees were not on par with the price point and compared to other seafood restaurants in the area (Eddie V’s). The scallops had some kind of seed on the top that made it feel like the scallops were sandy/gritty. We really wanted to like this restaurant and were sad that it didn’t live up to expectations.
Took my wife out tonight. Jax Fish house is always a great experience.
Great device great food. We had a reservation for 4 on a busy Saturday. They accommodated our plus 2 and fitted us in. Great experience.
Food was precise and delicately prepared. It’s clear that the restaurant takes great pride in their food. Servers and hostess were timely, friendly, & knowledgeable. 10/10 can’t wait to go back.
