“never disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

been here twice and both times the service and food were spot on. place is casual classy, not too many places offer reasonable prices and still give you the quality of service and ambience of this place. i paid more at fancier places for smaller plates that didn't taste near as good.

“Lives UYp To Its Slogan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

JAXON’s slogan “ Eat . Drink . Be Social .” best sums up the kind of experience the folks at this Jacksonville Beach restaurant offer customers , The social aspect in particular and the concept of a friendly , intimate atmosphere where sharing plates of food is encouraged , make it perfect for dining with friends
An eclectic, globally inspired seasonal menu with as many locally sourced ingredients as possible with an extensive variety of house-made cocktails. Spirits from small-batch distilleries. Unique Digital “ Tap Tables “ with Beer from Jacksonville. microbrews enable customers to pour their own beers , making for a wonderful experience ,,, The digital beer taps track individual pours and charges based on the amount of beer actually dispensed
The service was friendly , attentive , knowledgable & excellent making for a very enjoyable dining experience

“Just ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Jaxon Social was formerly KC Crave, which we enjoyed for their small plates and $5 drink specials. While there are now nightly drink specials (all "libations" $7 on the night we were there; although the waitress told us this did not really apply to "all" just some of the drinks on the menu) the $5 drinks are a thing of the past. There also seemed to be fewer small plates to choose from (gone were my favorite lamb lollipops-- now an entree instead)and the prices appeared to be slightly higher. We ordered three small plates to share: the fried green tomatoes, the beef sliders, and the crab Rangoon. The sliders were slightly dry and appeared to have been heated in the microwave, and the fried green tomatoes were very ordinary; same for the crab although the side sauce was tasty. All in all, nothing special and not as good as the former restaurant. I will say that the service was improved, although we were there on a rather slow night. I'm not sure if we will choose to return.

“Terrific Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Based on a local's recommendation, we tried Jaxon Social for dinner. I was concerned because we had only packed casual clothes, but we fit right in. The place has an upscale menu and feel, but it was very comfortable and casual. Our dinner was excellent. We started with a Caesar salad ($5) which was good. I was told to order the blackened fish with crawfish sauce, but I ordered the Sirloin Diane ($17) because I hadn't had the dish in so long. The steak was fork tender, the creamy mushroom sauce was great, the fresh crab was perfect, and I loved the wasabi mashed potatoes. My husband ordered the bacon-wrapped filet, ($22) and that was also perfectly cooked. Even though we were full, we has been told we HAD to order the fried cheesecake. It was served with ice cream and sliced bananas. It had powdered sugar and cinnamon on it. It was well worth the calories. We enjoyed a delicious meal with great service and a neat atmosphere. Maybe next time in will try the blackened fish!
