“Talk about exceeding the customer's experience!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The key to the success is exceeding the customer's experience and good ole fashion quality products. Jaxson's delivers on both fronts. We went by late one weekday night for a banana split, shared between four persons. The interior is nostalgic, not fancy, but the ice cream made up for what it lacked in modern decor. The banana split was quite good. We decided to return one Sunday evening and could not believe that the parking lot was over flowing, there was a line at the door with persons waiting a half hour + for seating and a line at the take out window. We decided to take our chances at the take out window as that line was moving faster. WOW! This was a GREAT Choice, the banana split inside costs $12.00, but at the window it's $8.50 and the six of a new born child! Seriously, this is one of the best ole fashion banana splits you will ever have, not to mention the best value for money. DO NOT order one each. Four to six persons can comfortably indulge in this ice cream feast! If you love ice cream and want a real treat, make you way to Jaxsons' take out window, you will not be disappointed!

“Very very cool stepback in time”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Been going to Jaxons ever since I moved to hollywood a long time ago. Walk in a smile everytime no matter what. Cool decor, LOTS of history and killer ice cream and food. Free popcorn if you want it and the servers have been there forever. The prices seem high when you look at the menu but the quality and quantity of the product makes you realize that it is really a good value. I recommend that you share something with somebody if you can both agree on what you want otherwise you will be freaked out when you see what comes to the table and will make yourself sick trying to finish it. There is really nothing else like this place anywhere in South FL !!!

“An Experience”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Worth the usually long wait on line. I had thought, it was only worth it for the ice-cream, my favorite, the chocolate shower (enough for 3-4). A few years ago, I wasn't excited about the food. But this time I was pleasantly surprised, great wraps, salads, foot long hot dogs. If you are in the area, this place is a must.

“Good but very very expensive!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I went to Jackson's tonight with my friend and our kids. It has a pleasant atmosphere it is just very expensive - nothing on the ice cream menu was under 11.95 + tax and tip - that's just a bit too expensive for ice cream.....there were 6 of us......do that math - and before anyone says - "well you all could have shared," not an easy thing to do when everyone wants different flavors and toppings and besides that sharing ice cream is just gross.

Three stars because of the price.

“Take me back to my childhood...great atmosphere & food”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

As a South Florida local, I've been to Jaxsons many times for both ice cream and food and am never disappointed. It's such a fun, casual, energetic atmosphere and is perfect for lunching with friends, families, and even sharing a sundae on a romantic date. The ice cream is homemade and tastes it! The sundaes are enormous (we shared one between three of us, and it was more than enough). Don't leave without browsing the old-fashioned candy section that will bring back great memories (and lots of calories)!
