Great music!

had drinks at the bar and listened to live music. A fun and lively place to hang out at night with both locals and tourists. Always seems to be lots of fun things going on.

We started referring to Jax as "our place" while on the island as the wait staff made us feel right at home--whether it was for an afternoon drink or an evening snack. The mix of classic American and the local cuisine is prepared well and is reasonable in price. I recommend sitting on the outside, upper floor as it is... More

If you are in the mood for a good burger this is the place to go. Great location with a beautiful water view. The rest of the menu is very good also and they make a nice smoothie for an afternoon treat.

We ate here twice! The hamburgers are the best on the island. They have a great menu and can easily accommodate large groups. We loved sitting upstairs in the open patio.

Made more than one stop at Jax and had great food every time. Large menu including American food. The ceviche is very, very good (ordered it every time we were there). Friendly staff, nice roof top dining over looking the beach, bar and patio on ground floor. Property is for sale but I hope it stays in business with a... More

I did eat at Jax some years ago and it was not too bad. Last night we arrived on the island quite late and I decided to grab a meal there. My daughter ordered the fish tacos and I wanted just something small and plain such as a toasted cheese sandwich. Sounds strange but I figured a cheese sandwich is... More

Jax has often been a regular place to eat while staying at Nautibeach. It's a short walk, they have a pretty good menu selection, and I can't recall walking away dissatisfied. We have used this as a breakfast restaurant in the past, with equal success.

Good food, not exotic. American and Mexican. A sports bar, really. We went there a couple evenings to watch our favorite NBA basketball team. Nice outdoor balcony overlooking beach across the road. Wifi only works downstairs.

So, this place is a total Texas gringo bar, but they had cold beer and good tequila AND a pool table. The staff was very nice and prompt, also.

We end up at Jax several times on all of our visits because it's so convenient to our lodging and we've never had a bad meal. They have a great american breakfast and even serve a version of it all day long. Both their mexican and american meals are good. I love their fish and chips! The drinks aren't bad... More
