Went there for a meeting of old college friends. Very noisy, and hard to communicate with each other. Also, a number of children that could have used a little discipline, loud and running around. Food, okay, little pricey for what you get.

Jax Grill is a very popular lunch spot in the Heights area of Houston. It's a casual place to eat and visit with friends. If you go at lunch time expect a line, but it moves very fast, so wait time is minimal. You stand in line to place your order, then in a few minutes you are carrying your... More

This place serves great food at a low cost. I recommend the red beans and rice, and the gumbo. We went here for the entertainment on Friday night which was an exceptional Zydeco band. By 8:30, the place was packed and they opened up the outdoor space even though it was very cold outside.

Love their Grilled fish, Some friends had chicken fired steak, and the drinks are great. It is a noisy place though.

OMG Jax has the best burgers and onion rings. This location is loads of fun and the live music was a treat. The staff was very friendly and glad to serve you. Great fun place for couples or families to come and eat... Nice patio!!

Husband and I split their pork chops daily special. Grilled with a fruit sauce, with mashed chunky potatoes, grilled vegetables, and a small slice of watermelon. Very tasty, and plenty for the two of us. We splurged on rice pudding for dessert.

The food and service is great. There is a live band and a small dance floor by the bar the place is small.

My first visit to Jax was last Memorial Day. I enjoyed the nachos and chocolate cake. We sat outside but there were way too many flies to enjoy the patio.

Met family and friends here for a fun dining experience. Good food, with nice size portions - the fajitas are enough for two for most people. Greek salad was also delicious, enchiladas... you name it. They've been eating here for several years and it's consistently good. Very casual spot, Usually a line when we've been there. Biggest negative, it can... More
