After coming to Stone Harbor for several years, three of us finally went to Jays for the first time last night. Our collective thought was: "why did we wait so long?". The meals were Swordfish, short ribs, and Pad Thai; all excellent. Fish and meat were cooked perfectly, as were the shrimp in the Pad Thai. Service was professional, prompt,... More

We ate at Jays on Sat. night of Labor Day Weekend. We had a reservation for four @ 6:00 pm- it was the only time available. We thoroughly enjoyed our food and entire experience. We had four adults, no kids. I would not recommend bringing anyone under 18 here. The food selections were varied, making the choice difficult. Everything was... More

Had high hopes based on reviews. Food was ok, nothing special. Server was nice, a bit too doting. Did not wow us.

My wife and I was staying down the street from this restaurant. So we decided to go on a Tuesday night. I suggest making a reservation. We did not have a reservation but being that it was only 5:45 and looking in the window at most of the tables being empty, did not feel it would be an issue. However... More

We ate at Jay's on Third on a Saturday night. They honored the reservation time and the service was great. The meal was enjoyed by all four of us. We had the rib appetizer which was really delicious. My husband enjoyed the soft shell crab and someone else ordered the wedge salad, which was also excellent. Two of us had... More

While I never thought I would ever write a positive review about any Jersey shore restaurant, I must admit that Jay's has become one of my all time favorites, anywhere! Jay's has it all going for them - fabulous food, impeccable service and friendly. It is owned and operated by people who want to make their diners happy. In addition... More

Have heard about Jays, but this was our first visit. The food was excellent and have to agree it was best in SH. Food alone is 5 stars, but service is important in a high end restaurant. We started with the Octopus and Foie Gras/scallops starters. octopus was ok, but it could have been great octopus and I would not... More

Just had my second visit to Jay's on Third. Consistent high quality preparation of dishes. Indulged in the Hudson Valley foie gras appetizer special. Done to perfection, although the portion was exceedingly small (2-3 bites at most) for $21. The oysters were spot on delicious. The scallops with ginger olive oil foam over mushroom risotto were outstanding. Nice dining in... More

We dined all over and this place is definitely the best, not just in Stone Harbor but at the Jersey shore. It's worth every penny, the quality is exceptional and every dish is delicious!! Had the Jersey tomato salad, Hamachi appetizer, scallops and we shared different desserts. Delicious, wish we had more time, would have gone back.

I was always a bit hesitant to eat at Jay's as the items on the menu can be a bit eclectic, and I have an un-adventurous husband when it comes to food. However, we decided to try it out and we were not disappointed. We started with the short-ribs which were very good and paired well with the slaw that... More
