“Nice meal”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

The calamari was the highlight of the meal. Very different and great. Service was great. Rest of food was good, but nothing exceptional. Enjoyed the meal and would come back.

“Very very nice”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

I LOVE that the staff doesn't ask"Are you finished working on that?" when asking to clear your plate. So uncivilized! Here, they ask if you have finished enjoying your meal. And yes!! Wonderful food, great service, very good people watching

“Noise drawns out taste”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We are not hard of hearing but short of some bars on manhattan'lower east side, this was the loudest eatery we ever ate at. Food was passable but who could taste anything above the din. Not fun.

“Awesome gluten free place!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

They will make most anything to your gluten free needs including cooking calamari in a separate pan in rice flour! And they have been willing to accommodate in any way possible. Truly a gem in this town. Not to mention everything is absolutely delicious and fresh as the Boulder and Denver locations,

“Great seafood spot!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

This was my second time to Jax for dinner. Great atmosphere in Old Town with really good quality food. The Casar salad is very good and the scallops I had were prepared beautifully. Good wine list and great service. Highly recommend it!
