If you are craving a burger and fries, this is the place to go! We sat on the balcony that overlooked the beach and had a great meal. We ordered spicy chicken wings with burgers and fries and were pleasantly surprised with our meal. The wings were spicy and very good, and my burger was to die for. After a... More

Was in Isla Mujeres for the week-end. Stopped by Jax bar and grill for lunch. What a great surprise. Their food is absolutely fabulous! We had their spicey tuna salad. Couldn't give it a high enough recommendation. If you are in Isla Mujeres Jax has to be one of your "must" stop places.

We stopped in for a quick snack, located right across the road from the beach...amazing views! We ordered a couple of beers suggested by our server, the guacamole and the shrimp ceviche. Both were absolutely amazing! Great service, great prices, great location....we'll be back for sure!

We really enjoyed breakfast and dinner the several times we ate at this restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed the original cheeseburger I had for dinner the night we went. It was a huge half-pound burger prepare to my taste. The beer was ice cold and staff was very accommodating. Definitely worth visiting!

The restaurant is inviting looking, but quite American in style and food. However, they have good guacamole and cheap buckets of ice cold beer, and the view over the main beach is lovely. Although I can't highly recommend it, I'd still go back for a fairly good atmosphere and decent snacks and drinks. Check it out for yourself.

We've had a couple eating experiences at JAX. We typically have burgers and fries the night before we are heading back to the US. The menu is extensive and very good.

Jax overlooks the beach and has a really good, casual atmosphere. My favorite spot is on the open 2nd floor. Nice atmosphere. The best Caesar salad on the Island and I love their fish tacos. If you are yearning for a hamburger you could nominate any of the Jax burgers to compete against the best. Friendly staff, good food and... More

This restaurant is owned by an American, and they try to pull that off with their "howdy" signs etc. Good food, good service and good drinks. They have rooftop seating that overlooks the beaches and sunset. If you need American TV, this is the place to go, they were showing the Academy Awards and now are showing basketball for March...
