Nice casual spot -- Rooftop is great for a late-night venture!

JAX is right in the middle of everything making it an ideal location if vacationing with a lot of friends/family. The fare and drinks are casual, but good. The rooftop is a wonderful late-night spot if you would like to catch the breeze!

For the past several years we have attended Jax's Oscar Night event where they tune all their television sets to English-language broadcasting. This year we discovered another reason to frequent Jax - their 4-bite coconut shrimp. This is a popular menu item in dozens of restaurants. We've never had better.

This was right next to our hotel and we ate here several meals. The service was super friendly, a little slow, but otherwise great.

Great place to sit and people watch. Food and drink just average...not great not bad. Sports pub feel. Worth a stop at least once. Bring pesos and sit upstairs. Nice place to watch the games.

We stopped by for some drinks and a an appetizer. Both drinks and food were good. Come with pesos. The folks at Jax decide that their "exchange rate" is 10 to 1. The actual exchange rate was 16 to 1. It actually made us feel like we shouldn't pay with a card because that seemed kind of shady. Don't get... More

Jax is the spot you know you will always get a fabulous meal. Has a sports bar feel downstairs and upstairs on the balcony is the perfect place to sit with a bucket of beer and enjoy a burger.

When visiting Jax, we highly recommend going near sunset time and enjoying the view. The food was just ok. Nothing bad, just kind of bland. My husband had the chicken fried steak. I had the grilled chicken. Mine was pretty dry, his was quite bland. We had been on the island all day and were very hungry so it was... More

The food was fast, local, and amazing! Delish margaritas! We stumbled on it after touring North Beach. The location is great as is the view.
