Very dissapointed

After first visit thought food overpriced for quality ... second visit same opinion ... husband's shrimp was burned and after informing waiter of same, he just shrugged it off like 'oh well, too bad' ... we will NOT be trying a third time!

The food was something you would find at a buffet, it was edible. For the price you pay though its questionable. Our server had to have been high because she didn't remember anything, she forgot to put in our appetizer, and she not once filled our drinks after initially bringing them to us.

It has a large seating area that is totally open and it does not help my review that there were some ill behaved children nearby. Service was good, salad bar was fairly generic, including but not limited to the frozen chopped boiled eggs. Nothing special there. I had fresh grouper, it was decent. My hubby had the shrimp pasta and... More

As a Port A resident we dine here once or twice a month. The food is good and the soup and salad bar is very good. Service is fast and friendly and much of the seafood is fresh. Excellent value and friendly owners.

We always go on Wednesday, which is "Clam Chowder" night. It's the Wednesday soup. Great salad bar with some unique offerings not found on a standard salad bar. We've had pizza, spaghetti and various pasta dishes, all wonderful. Their seafood is also great, from the fresh grilled catch of the day to the friend shrimp. Jay's is always our first... More

I was really looking forward to crab cakes, but with the very first bite I was gasping for water. It was the saltiest thing I've ever eaten! My husband said his seafood pasta was also salty, but nowhere near as bad as mine. I told the waitress and the only thing she offered was to bring me another crab cake...made... More

I read a lot of reviews about restaurants in Port Aransas and decided to try this one. Great food, great service, a little pricey but overall great experience. The salad bar is awesome, with great variety of choice and the hot french bread is amazing. The portions are big so you can share without hesitation.

We have been coming here for over 25 years. The salad bar is so good! We especially love the curried rice salad, a house specialty. The owners, Jay and Stephanie, are often on site. The pasta is tasty and filling. There is also a cute gift shop and boutique on site. Vegetarian fare available.
