Great location, great service and good food.

Seriously, the food was pretty dang good. Just had a few beers and you can't mess that up. The staff was very friendly. Nice view of the beach.

The bar had several TV's and they were in English. They had an upstairs seating which was outdoors and another seating area downstairs which was enclosed. The drinks were good. I tried a Banana Cabana which was WONDERFUL!! A great little place to definitely check out when you are in Isla Mujeres!!

We ended up eating at Jax Bar and Grill twice. The first time was our first night on Isla Mujeres. It was conveniently right across the street from our hotel. We had the craving for ceviche, which we got the blended version which had fish, shrimp, and octopus. It was good, much better than the ceviche at our hotel (blah).... More

We liked the upstairs balcony, where we could look out at the beach. Drinks were good, as well as the food and service. We had a large party and went there a few times during our stay on the island.

Food was uninspired. They had no light beer. Service was only ok. Nice beach-front patio but don't think I'd bother going back.

Yes, JAX serves Tex-Mex food and their exchange rate for paying in US dollars is 1 dollar to 10 pesos; however, the food is good and it is located in a great area on the island. Most places don't give you a great exchange rate when paying in dollars. You should pay in pesos everywhere on the island. This was... More

Went here because it was conveniently located across from my hotel. It was empty except for a couple tables. Had drinks and some food which was not so great but the worst part was when the bill arrived, instead of giving us and exchange rate of US to Peso of $15 to $1 Peso they only gave us $10 to... More

If you want really gross, frozen American food and generic Americana decor go here. Otherwise, don't. There are plenty of great places on the island where you can see a sunset and get much better food. We went out every night for a week and this place was by far our least favorite.

Jax has a little bit of everything. They have sports games (Go Pack Go), they have sunsets, decent food, good service, and buckets of corona. We stop at least once every visit.

Sit on the balcony and relax with a plate of shrimp to peel and a bucket of beers. They have pretty decent food when you get tired off the cuisine foods around the corner street. Prices are fair to what you pay in the U.S. I remember when it was a small establishment and only had the downstairs and bar... More
