Delicious meals are served here! We had the burrata mozzarella as an appetizer which was as good as what we have had in Italy! My husband had the filet mignon and I had the Bronzino... Both were excellent! We passed on dessert and went to Springers for ice cream which is alway a treat! If you're... read more

One of the best meals we've had at the beach! The service and food were excellent! We had the "Toast"... mushroom appetizer, which was amazing; the Ahi Tacos were great and the Baby Beets were also tasty! I had the Branzino entree which was amazing! Unfortunately, I can't remember what everyone had but no one left unhappy! Fun night, we... More

By far the best and most creative cuisine in Stone Harbor. Wonderful combination of flavors and textures. Kale caesar salad was excellent. Scallops with frothed lemon amazing. Pad Thai is always on the menu and an excellent take on traditional Thai dish. The staff are professional and friendly. Just remember it is BYO.

We have been coming to the Stone Harbor/Avalon area for many years, but somehow had not tried Jay's. If only we knew what we had missed for the past 8 years that Jay's has been here...Our meal was excellent, the staff (especially Patrick) was professional and attentive but not hovering. The menu is limited in size but most definitely not... More

Whilst visiting Avalon with family, we ate at Jays two years ago and had a wonderful meal. So on our return Jays was a must visit restaurant. My brother and husband both had a scallop and foie gras starter which left them in raptures as did the filet mignon. Everything was cooked to perfection and some of the delightful staff,... More

We had a great dinner at Jay's on Third. Our second visit, but years apart. Althought not a Thai restaurant I was delighted to see Pad Thai on the menu. It was excellent, which is truly hard to find any where, let alone the shore. My husband enjoyed his steak, which was cooked perfectly.. The food was great, and the... More

We have tried Jays On Third three times in the past two summers . The first two visits were mediocre at best. Even though the food tasted good the portions were small and the selection was limited. Our third visit was the final visit. My wife and I ordered two very different dishes. Mine was a fish which they had... More

The atmosphere is very nice and we had a reservation and were seated promptly. We were all disappointed with the lack of menu choices. There was no "house salad", only a kale salad or beet salad and they were both on the expensive side. We had a variety of entrees including the scallops, halibut, branzino and steak. No one in...

Everything, and I mean everything, at this restaurant is exceptional. We have been going here since it first opened eight years ago. We loved it then and it keeps getting better every year. Dining at Jay's is always a delightful experience. The food, service, ambiance and friendliness of the staff makes Jay’s one of our all-time favorite’s, anywhere. I have... More

I've been visiting Stone Harbor/ Avalon for 48 yrs. Seen many changes and spend a great deal of time eating out. For Europe and vacations far away I dress up But I love shorts and T-shirts for 7 mile island. My husband and I were wandering Stone Harbor and town was empty. We chose to try Jays on Third -...
