Jazzy Atmosphere!

We loved walking in with all the old time Jazz atmosphere! The service was great and the piano playing, then the jazz band afterwards just added so much atmosphere to the night! They make great drinks to add to the fun! I did order the tri-tip steak and was expecting it to be more tender... oh well... read more

This place makes you feel as if you are in a New York City Jazz club...jazz is playing all the time and the decor is very much like those places in New York City located in the theater district. There are nice booths and open tables. Jazz is constantly playing. The main trouble with this place is the noise level...it... More

Highly recommend a vist to Jaks when in Glendale. The live local music provides great atmosphere. Excellent bar if you just want a drink and enjoy the live music. Highly recommend the rack of ribs and the garlic mash potatoes. Salmon was excellent as well. Wait staff was very friendly and help in choosing a wine for the meal.

The good: Jax has always been a place that my husband and I enjoy visiting when we are in the area. The food we have been served there has always been quite good and the service has usually been fine. The décor does make you feel like you have stepped back in time, and who doesn't love live jazz?

I agree with some of the reviewers that the food is just average here. What my husband and I like is the atmosphere, ambiance, and good service. The Bar service makes very good drinks. We both chose the tri-tip dinner and it was not as delicious as I was hoping it would be. The meat was a bit tough and... More

A little bit tired, but very comfy place with cheerful staff and good beer. Music a bit too overwhelming, but hey, it is all part of atmosphere. Served beer in a cracked glass this evening, and got a replacement beer free of charge. That's good service. Thanks, like it!

Neighborhood bar and restaurant with average food, but good live music. Average at best. Service was very good though for large groups.

The bar is in the same building as the Hotel Brandwood so very convenient for a drink before bed and the live music is different every night so you have great variety and entertainment

Fabulous food, great service and a nice piano bar in an old building with character. Great location on Brand Blvd. in central part of city, just around the block from Glendale Center Theater. Just a tad bit expensive for my normal fare.

Glendale is lucky to have such a fine establishment as Jax. Quality live Jazz music 7 days a week with no cover? Brilliant. When you walk in you are transported back in time straight to the ratpack era. The vibe is old school, but in a completely refreshing way. The food and service was A+.
