Classic decore

Ate at Jazz as it was storming outside, Flash flooding and lots of thunder. Had Jambalaya. Portion size was a little on the skimpy side. Bread brought before the meal was very good. Server was excellent.

Love coming here. Food is consistent and good. The voo doo tails are awesome, as is the andouille fettuccine.

What a wonderful place in a busy area. Step inside and it's another world. Food is exceptional, I love everything. Best fried oysters in a restaurant anywhere, sorry Mom's homemade still win. Everything I've had is excellent, wife has loved everything she's had as well. Prices are great as the service is. Oh yeah, Guinness on tap!

Jazz has been an institution in the KC area for decades. Located at the corner of 39th and State Line by KU Med Center, it evolved from the ashes of the former bar Jimmie's Jigger in the mid-80's. Jazz is cajun. They have a very extensive menu with all the traditionals like jambalaya, crawfish, red beans and rice, hush puppies,... More

We visit Jazz at least 5 times a year. Never had a bad meal or service. On the rare occasion they aren't on their game it's better than most. Portions are large ( half order is plenty) menu has great variety. I bring every visitor to KC here. Prices are reasonable. If you are visiting this is one place you... 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

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 friendly. The food was really good. As... 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
