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!

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.

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.

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....

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.

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!

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)
