“Bad Business, Horrible Service”
Reviewed July 23, 2010

We went for my nephews birthday. At first glance is looks like fun. Then you realize it's an old place that is in need of an update. My black bean vegetarian burger had no cheese/onions I told the waitress she didn't do anything about it. She then came out with a sundae with a sparkler on it - placing it in front of him. He could of burned himself! She didn't care. She all of our food in one check - the cashier refused to split it. We did it ourselves - it was hectic enough in there on top of it we had to all figure out our amounts. In the end I paid $42 for a veggie burger with fries and a waffle cone. not worth it. pass this place!

“What a RIPOFF !!!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2010

The waitresses should be wearing black and white stripes with numbers not red and white striped uniforms. Why you ask..........because this place is run by criminals. We ordered two small cups of ice cream and our waitress told us that the smallest they had were two scoop cups. (not even listed on the menu so you have no idea how much they are). Well we said that two scoops would be fine. The ice cream was good..............but not this good.....the bill was over $15 plus $2 tip.....FOR 4 SCOOPS OF ICE CREAM !!!! You must be kidding! We have been to Italy and have had home made gelato ( the best ice cream in the world and it was no were near this price. If you want decent ice cream that is crazy overpriced make sure you get it from the crooks at Jaxsons. !!!!

“More than just ice cream”
Reviewed December 11, 2009

My wife and I ate here twice on our trip to the Fort Lauderdale area. On one occasion we just had ice cream for dessert. On the other I had a sundae while my wife had a rueban. All was top notch. When in the area again we will revisit this restaurant.

“jaxon's Ice cream is an experience!”
Reviewed September 24, 2009

I went with a group of 4 to dine inside as there is also a ice cream stand outside. We waited in line for about 20 minutes or less. It's not the place for a first date unless you talk very loud! but it's definately a dining experience like no other. They serve more than ice cream and they serve in monster proportions! The ice cream and the food was great , can't wait to go again! Quick tip; go in the afternoon to avoid long lines!
