Consistently Good

I love this place! Great drinks, very good food, friendly wait staff, reasonable prices, plus good jazz!! Their ribs are excellent. Try the Gringo sandwich... it is delicious. The trout is great. Never had a disappointing meal here.

Went to Jax's with a few work friends. Nice restaurant and bar, close to the main hotels on Brand. They have a good selection of food, like your Momma would make. Prices are good and the food service is good. The bar service is hit or miss, if you are at a table or booth. They have music with a... More

Staying at the Brandwood hotel which is basically floors two and three of Jax. So daily visits to jazz,drinks and fantastic food. Truly after two weeks haven't had a bad meal, more bordering excellent. With smooth jazz and equally smooth staff makes for a welcoming experience!

We loved discovering Jax! We had a good time at the bar and listening to music. We looked at the menu which looked really great, but we only drank there. It was dark and a typical local bar which has been a mainstay of Brand Street for many years.

We moved from Glendale to Florida 25 yrs ago & are on a nostalgia trip now, going back to our old haunts in Los Angeles & Glendale for old times sake. Jax was always one of our favorite places in Glendale for drinks or dinner & the years gone past haven't changed it. The atmosphere, food, drinks & live Jazz... More

The best thing about Jax is the live entertainment. Most nights they are playing. It is a tight and narrow restaurant. Regular American food fare is offered with a stocked bar.

Went to JAX while in town for work. The place was closed earlier than I was ready to eat one night. The bartender was polite in routing me elsewhere. I love when people do that instead of just saying no...kitchen closed. I went back earlier another night. Sat at the bar to have couple beers and dinner. The meal was... More
