Great Spot!

What a great local restaurant - you've simply GOT to try it! We were visiting on a business trip and wanted to try out a local place. I was traveling with three Cajun food fans and this place came highly recommended. We were not disappointed. The service was great. They were fast and... read more

We had reservations for a large party. We thought the lively atmosphere would be fun. However, we were stuck down below the band behind the bar in what used to storage. The room was freezing (several guests didn't take off their coats)! I think to make up for the lack of heat in the room they added it to our... More

The food was just okay, nothing to write home about. After all, KC is hundreds of miles from the ocean so you can't expect your seafood to be fresh. The place is far to small to have loud live music, however, and we felt like we were completely crammed into our seats with people bumping into us every time someone... More

It had been a while since we dined at the Jazz, too many other new places, some times it is just better to stay with what you liked in the first place. Chicken Ala Mare still as good as it ever was. Hint Tuesday evenings it is 1/2 price special. It just cant be beat. Chicken Breast topped with Ala... More

I travel weekly. I spent several months after Katrina in New Orleans. Jazz is as close to bourbon street as you will get in the midwest. Great place to eat. We drive the 60 miles often to eat there. Wife and Kids enjoy the shopping area also.

I was told this was a great place for good food, but I was a little disappointed. I think this place is more for the locals. The food and service was just basic. My drink was strong which I guess was a plus. I will probably not chose to return to this restaurant unless I am persuaded by a group,... More

Stopped in Thursday Oct. 2, after setting up for the American Royal BBQ competition. The three of us were soaking wet as it rained all day. Tried to find the lunch menu. It is mixed in with the entire menu, which is large. I was craving fried catfish. It hit the spot! My friends got blackened tilapia and catfish. Beans... More

Went on a Saturday before the rush. We ordered the crab cakes & I also got the beignets with chicory coffee. Crab cakes were a pleasant surprise and the beignets are worth getting.
