Jay's

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

Place is small and in season you wait for a table. As my wife and I travel as a couple we sit at the bar. The food is incredible, the Cippino some of the best seafood I've eaten including the east coast. The staff are incredible, attentive and if you sit at the bar you will witness in a small... More

Had a wonderful seafood pasta..enough for 3 people! Wait staff was fun. Only wine and beer here but location so convenient and great fun atmosphere. No reservations so go early or wait in line

Met group of friends for dinner, 11 of us in total. We had to ask multiple times for our drinks (alcohol, so it was worth their while) and were promised the seafood pizza would change our lives. Drinks never arrived, pizza was good, not life changing. The restaurant wasn't so busy to have been ignored like we were. Too bad.

It doesn't have much parking and it would be easy to overlook with all the hyped up places around, but we'll go back to Jay's and I can't (and don't) say that about many places. We had a great overall experience, but there was some serious good munching going on. The shrimp. If you're looking for something that might be... More

This restaurant is one we eat at at least once every time we travel from Phoenix! Our absolute favorite is the veal parmeson which is huge and served in a casserole for one! However it makes a great leftover lunch for the next day.

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!
