We have come to accept jaxsons for what it is. The only place to take your boat in the area and have a beer and a burger. They do have a 2 for $10 lunch special but they are usually not done very well. This trip no exception. The buffalo chicken sandwich turned out to be a single chicken finger... More

This place is the only restaurant on the water in the Lake Placid area. You would think the owners or managers would want to take some pride in it. It is dark and dinghy for a reason. If it was bright inside patrons would really see how dirty it is. We went there this past Saturday night and decided to... More

We go here all the time when we come to Lake Grassy (in Lake Placid area) to our second home. Mahi was good. Wife had her standard prime rib. Wine was actually chilled (but not poured by the waitress). It is Lake Placid. :-) This is typical Lake Placid. Nothing fancy, just laid back. BTW, nickel beer on Wednesdays.

I have had very poor service, even rude service, certain items on the menu are very good but inconsistently so plus everything is very overpriced. I have still put up with that as much as possible to hear a great duo playing classic rock on Sunday afternoons from 4 to 8pm, M Squared band. I make sure I don't go... More

Went for dinner on April 5 after a 2 year absence, wanted to give them another try. Sat on the patio, the furniture is old and nasty with mildew stains all over them, FYI, bleach does wonders for mildew. Waitress was just ok, not overly friendly but did get our order right. My husband and I ordered the "all you... More

My friends and I stopped in to have a late dinner and hangout. The app special was smoked salmon dip, I however do not like salmon so I was looking for something else. About a min later the kitchen manager Thomas came by to say hi to our table and recompense the dip. My friends decided to try it and... More

This is by far the best place in town for cold beer and good food. But one must remember it's not a cookie-cutter franchise. There are plenty of them in town if you want predictability and boredom. This is real Florida and real Lake Placid. Reasonable prices, music and it's on a lake to boot.

We've been several times but we've always had slow service and the wait staff was not very friendly. The place doesn't appear to be very clean ... it's very dark inside. Nice to sit outside but not very scenic. Food is good - we have mostly have burgers/sandwiches when there. Some of our friends really like the catfish.

We are full time RV'ers and stayed in the Lake Placid area for 2 months. We ate at Jaxson's after a round of golf and LOVED it so much went back again. When you walk into the restaurant you are confronted by dollar bills tacked on all the walls, signed by the locals that have stopped there. They have a... More

Atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for to enjoy a date night, server had a very fun playful spirit, food was an excellent portion, and 5.35 for absolute martini! Ill be back!
