Been eating here since day one (Aug '93). New owners have made it more profitable. On the surface, little changed. You can get daily specials faxed to you. What's on the fax vs the white board menu vs what you actually receive may be different. Artistic license in the kitchen I suppose. If you are there for a special, that's... More

Great salads. Dressings are made from scratch. Ranch is the best I have ever had. Good burgers, too. Great for family dining and large groups.

I have been eater here occasionally for almost 20 years. The make a decent hamburger, better-than-average chicken tenders, and good salads. It can get very crowded at normal lunch and dinner times. Many times loud with lots of kids, but that's their demographics.

Jax Grill was a weekly stop and we raved to friends and family about the great food. Something happened around November 2015 - and it is not good. The quality is much lower. The food quality is poor. The iced tea tasted old and stale. I am so very sad to see one of my favorite restaurants in town go... More

We were in Bellaire to get some ice skates and needed a place to get lunch before the Texans game. We had three kids with us so we chose Jax. The food was good and had good choices for the kids. Each order had plenty to eat. The kids had the chicken strips and burger. They enjoyed them. We had... More

Jax will surprise you. Really good food, a varied, imaginative menu and a no fuss setting. Good place for lunch with friends or coworkers.

We were once a week regulars before we moved. Great grilled foods and many more items on the menu. Family friendly atmosphere and quick service. You can't go wrong at Jax.

I used to eat here more than once a week but since the ownership has changed recently I do not enjoy it as much and maybe go once a month. It used to be my first choice if I could only have one restaurant but now it wouldn't bother me if they closed it. Still pretty good but they are... More

Jax Grill is "ol' reliable" for our family. We've been customers since the place opened over 25 years ago. When our kids were younger, we often ate in after Little League games, etc. As empty nesters, we are about 90% takeout now. The menu really hasn't changed much over the years, as they have figured out what Bellaire folks like... More

Excellent chicken fried steak. REAL mashed potatoes. Good sweet tea. Yummy cream cheese brownie. Great service. Very good one man band on Monday night - plays a variety of music genre.
