I highly recommend JAX. The food was absolutely delicious as well as a very courteous staff. Will certainly be back.
We had a "private" dining experience as they like many other restaurants are having difficulties finding help. Regardless, the food and service were excellent. My husband and I both had the Halibut and it was cooked perfectly. We love their location as it is easy parking and we get back on Shawnee Mission Parkway quickly to head back to Johnson County. We will return!
We enjoyed this casual, yet very nice seafood restaurant. The food was delicious and the wine list was great as well.
The waitress, Laura, was great. The food was very good. Our family is from the NE and from NOLA, so the food was as good as you can expect for seafood in the middle of the country. Would recommend.
Server was outstanding and made for a fun experience. The food was spectacular and enjoyed the casual atmosphere. Will be back!
We're glad you enjoyed everything about your dinner, and we look forward to seeing you again!
First date with our newborn
Great selection of food, wonderful service. Would definitely return.
If you're looking for fresh seafood and great service Jax delivers.
Thank you Danielle for the kind words! We hope to see you again soon
Our Server Brie was cordial and very attentive. She anticipated our needs and helped us select our entres'. Initially our fish dish was a bit overcooked. However, Brie brought the Manager to address our concerns. The Manager, Lesha, was very responsive and insisted upon replacing our enters. It was my wife's birthday and Lesha and Brie made her feel very welcomed and special. It turned out to be a great birthday dinner.
Once again did not disappoint. All food was prepared and delivered to our table delicious. Cocktails were wonderful as well!
Wonderful food and service.
Great food the service was delightful, I was so impressed with the desserts often desserts are sub- par but here it was a five star
Birthday get together! Great service, great food, and nice accommodations to our requests! Especially loved that they made the birthday girl feel loved… thanks to all the staff at Jax!
Great vibe and awesome cocktails. We enjoyed the calamari, muscles and shrimp po boys. Also two in our group had the steak and scallops...which were also good.
Laura was nice and enjoyed gumbo with house fries.
They had our table ready on time & our server was excellent. Our food was delicious.
Love the staff and oysters and chowder too much!!!
Food is delicious. Wait staff friendly. Atmosphere great.
Our time at Jax’s is always phenomenal. I was taking my husband for his birthday dinner. We sat at the bar, and had great service and amazing food. We always enjoy having dinner here.
We had a great time. We will definitely be back!
We finally went to Jax after years of wondering about it; we were delighted!
The environment and staff were very welcoming and pleasing.
We went primarily for the oysters and were surprised by how delicious they were. We ordered a few of all that were available that day and liked the Emersum best. In fact, we ordered another half dozen of those, they were that good.
We enjoyed our other dishes and felt that we would certainly be back for more....
delicious oysters and great variety, we went during happy hour.
They wanted to seat us in the bar area where loud rap music was playing, so we asked to sit in the room next to the bar, but the music was still annoying.
I ordered catfish, but was told they were already out. This was at 7:00 pm??
The only lobster available was a cold lobster roll. Not very appealing at that!
For a self proclaimed seafood restaurant, Jax is not really in the ballgame. I do not feel you will be able to survive very long unless some major changes take place. We will not return until the restaurant reaches a higher level commensurate with a quality seafood restaurant.
This is a great Plaza gem. The food was top shelf on presentation and taste. The stuffed tomato also made this a great place for a vegetarian to eat on a date with a seafood lover.
Absolutely fantastic. Kelly was amazing, as was the food!
This was a great quiet neighborhood with wonderful seafood. We were seated right away despite being early for our reservation. The food was fresh and had interesting flavors. Our server seemed a bit frazzled, which made the service not quite as great as some other experiences. The food was totally worth the slightly higher expense, although the wine seemed very pricey for the brand we were served. Would definitely try this restaurant again in the future!
The wait staff was very attentive and our server gave great recommendations.
Excellent food. Some of the best oysters I’ve ever had. Love that this restaurant offers mocktails. Service was great. Can’t wait to come back.
Outstanding seafood and service.
Food was excellent, expensive, but excellent. They had a smoked honey they used for the old fashioned..sooo goood!
Servers and Staff really made a difference in accomodating our groups' specific requests
It was my boyfriend’s birthday and they could not have been nicer!
Craving seafood. This met all our expectations. Excellent oyster selection!
Came here for date night - a friend recommended the mussels and oysters here. It was my first time at this location AND trying an oyster - both were incredibly satisfying experiences that I will be going back for again. The staff were so kind and went above and beyond to ensure we had a lovely time!
Recommendation: try the oysters & mussels, the happy hour menu rocks, and if you're going for date night, try and snag a gondola ride on the water at the plaza for after dinner if you can. (reservations only)
Amazing food.. seafood in KC.. who would of thunk! Plates were beautiful and service very personable. Loved the outdoor patio.
After reviewing several restaurant suggestions in KC, we selected Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar...we’re certainly glad we did! Service was awesome and the dinner was amazing. Our server made great suggestions! Special attention from the general manager was much appreciated. We would definitely recommend this place to others.
Service is very important part of our time and money spent. Our server, Lara T, was on point!!
This our Special Occasion Restaurant. Always top quality sea food
Awesome place to stop for dinner/drinks!! Great food and happy hour!!
