Jay's has good seafood. I especially like the fresh salmon and the halibut limone. The portions are large and the fish usually come with pasta to fill you up. Their menu is diverse with a range of prices, but their best stuff, the seafood is a bit pricy.

I really enjoyed food and service at dinner here. Excellent choices on the menu. I had the sausage & peppers which came with a side of linguine and soup or salad. Bread is served with a side of marinara. Everything was delicious. I will definitely be back!

This had been an icon in downtown Carlsbad for many years. Still really good food and fun servers with a laid back beach vibe.

This small little restaurant makes great food! We stopped in for lunch and shared a pizza and it was so good we ordered one the next day for dinner. Their menu looked good, a tad pricey, but hey, you're on vacation!

We visit Carlsbad twice a year, and have walked by Jay's countless times. We finally had dinner there today, and are SOOOO glad we did! Everything we ordered was great, and finally we have a seafood restaurant in Carlsbad that cooks seafood with the care and seasoning it deserves. We ordered the Calamari Appetizer (OMG, you could just spoon up... More

Good, real italian food, all of the time. Service is meh, but what that lacks is made up in thier amazing dishes. The italain place next door is pretty, but food is terrible. Jays is the original and the best italian in the area. Try to hit it about twice each week we visit Carlsbad.

.... so when I get a chance to eat some good seafood I go for it. Jay's proved to be a pleasant surprise. When I walked in the place I was afraid I had entered a pizza joint that also had some seafood. After eating there, I think it's a seafood place that also has pizza. (Pizza you can get... More
