Oysters were incredible, as was the service, wine, quality, etc. Prices were much higher than other high end seafood restaurants, however, and the lobster tagliatelle, while good, was $31 for two tiny nibbles of lobster which was disappointing.

After a very stressful day waiting on news of the devastating fire, and having no electricity, we decided to go ahead with our planned anniversary dinner reservation at Jax. We were so glad we went. The food and service were wonderful. Hearing our family and friends were ok, and our lovely dining experience were exactly what we needed. Our heart goes out to those less fortunate.

We loved our server. He was personable, and made the experience a lot of fun. The first thing the server asked us if we had been there before, and when we said yes, he said he liked to serve veteran diners. He knew the menu and the available wines and his knowledge made it easy for us to choose wine to go with our entrees. The scallops were very good, and the salmon was perfectly done.

I highly recommend, Jax for fresh oysters and other sea food dishes!
The Specialty drinks they make there are delicious as well!
The service is good though my server did not seem to be enjoying their job. They may have stuff going on outside of work, I get that.
If you are wanting a great “date night” spot, I recommend Jax!!

Jax was an awesome choice for my small company's holiday dinner! I arrived about 20 minutes early and they graciously seated my wife and I while we waited for our guests to arrive. They had us at a larger table in the back and nicely separated from the crowd so we felt quite relaxed and comfortable. Ross, our server was the BOMB! The guy was on it all night. Excellent, outstanding service! Every selection we made for drinks and food were fantastic! I was having the Jax Mai Tai which was quite tasty...an homage to the Monkey Pod Mai Tai in Kauai and not technically a "real" Mai Tai but still very tasty and worthy of a repeat order. It's been way too many years since I was last at Jax but I can assure you, it will be much more often going forward. Thank You Jax!

I have eaten at Jax for many years. Sadly, this was the most disappointing experience I’ve had. The crabs tasted like water. The oysters tasted as though they all sat in the same vat of salt water; not much flavor either. The best things were the collards and grilled squash.

We had reservations, and were seated immediately. Service was timely, but unobtrusive. Server, Dustin was very personable and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was great! We had a crab cake and oysters for starters, entrees were the seafood chowder and the scallops. Everything was delicious, but must point out that the prices were not good. $20 for a single crab cake, almost $30 for 4 small scallops. Again, the food was delicious, excellently prepared and presented, but still too pricey for what we received.
