Always a must stop for us while in Carlsbad. Great location, walking distance form the beach houses. Small place so big parties are tough. Good pizza, seafood and italian

We went early evening when it wasn't very busy. We got seated fairly quickly outside. It took 10 mins for our waitress to even show up. Then she wanted to take food our order before we even got drinks. The food was ok but not worth the cost. She came out once after that to check in us. Someone else... More

Great service! This place isn't big and we were a group of 11. They fit us in and helped us feel at home. Solid Italian fare. Nothing fancy. Probably a bit pricey because of the convenient location but beer and wine was good value. If you crave heart Italian and want great service, this is a good choice.

I am so glad someone recommended Jay's to us while on vacation in Carlsbad. If you are visiting the area, I would make sure you stop here to eat. The portions are very generous (so maybe share some plates) and everything we had was phenomenal (thanks to a very talented chef who has stayed at the restaurant for decades). The... More

Our family has at least one meal every year during our stay. Their Cioppino is awesome and their breads and pizzas are very good and the staff is great!

I have had Linguine and Clams from Coast to Coast. Jay's is by far the best. Great service and walking distance to all hotels.

We love this restaurant and have been going for more than 20 years. Great Italian food and pizza, we love the Chicken Marco Polo and Linguini with Fresh Clams in white sauce.

Been here 20 times, but it was not so great this time. One entre came out after everyone was done eating. They did make it right by giving it to us free. Actually the mistakes were made by the waitress.

This place was in walking distance of our hotel. We decided to try it out. Pizza and Italian. Hubby love cioppino and they had it on the menu. A bit pricey but what he got was excellent very fresh and worth every penny. We definitely will come here again. Very friendly waiter had an excellent rapport with his customers. Great... More
