We love going to Jax Café for a night out. They have the best prime rub in the city and some very strong martinis to pair!

We look forward to out next night out to Jax.

Family dinner at a traditional restaurant was a hit with everybody. From the starting Jax Famous crab rolls to the fresh and delicious carrot cake at the end, the evening was fantastic. The prime rib, beef tournedos and scallops were the most popular entrees. Soup or salad is extra. A bit spendy but our server Maddie and the excellent food made it all worthwhile. Liked this a lot better than the trendy new restaurants where you're not sure what you're eating and you pay for the trend and not the food.

Just came back from Easter Brunch. It is sad when a staple Restaurant is sliding down hill so fast. Today the Bacon was burnt bad. The Salad was mush, The Salmon was bland, on flavor. And good staples missing from last year. This was are 3rd year in a row and sliding fast. There are a lot better for 43.50 per person.

A Twin Cities staple, Jax has offered classic cuisine for decades in a charming red brick building in northeast. It offers lovely outdoor dining in warm weather, and a cozy wood-paneled interior when it is not.

Jax has some delicious, unique starter salads that vary with the season... don't miss them! I had scallops, my husband prime rib. Scallops were outstanding, prime rib perfectly done.

Jax has been around since 1933: experience pays off. It is reliably excellent, and always a place we can count on to make the occasion special! If you need a place to celebrate an anniversary, family event or take a special guest, Jax is a sure bet.

We went back again for the great prime rib and were not disappointed. It was done to perfection. We split a 20 ounce piece which was more than enough for two; The Caesar was great as usual.
Friends has Scallops and the smaller cut of prime - both excellent. I must say that the service was not up to previous levels. Our waiter was slow - the entrees came out a little cool and he was not around to pour wine. But the food will have us back again
