don't waste your money here. Not sure why anyone would go here. It's old, dirty and the food is bland and very bad. Our steak was way overcooked and when we mentioned it the server just said, "oh, too bad.". Unbelievable!! Maybe she had

We went to Jax to celebrate my partner receiving his Master of Divinity degree in May. It is now July and I'm still angry. We put on the dog as his parents were visiting from Chicago. Drinks, oysters, appetizers, bottle of wine, and the anniversary chateau brion special. The bill was over $430.00. When serving the chateau, our waitress employed the assistance of a busser who hacked up the meat into two aggregiously uneven portions. The waitress was mortified and went to get the manager. He tried to manage ME instead of the situation. He asked what he could do to make the situation better. I told him it was no big deal..just throw on a small fillet and serve it to the smaller portioned guest. He then went into some litany about how we had plenty of food...why not eat what we have and if we were still hungry he would buy us dessert (dessert came with the anniversary special anyway.) He then went to call the owner who told him to cook me a steak. By that time the others at my table shared their portion with me off of their plates. How classy is that. He proceeded to give attitude and tried to humiliate us within earshot of other diners. I told him to leave us alone and not talk to us anymore. He couldn't resist getting a smart aleck comment in as we were leaving the establishment.

I have been to Jax to celebrate some special life events and anniversaries and they have never let me down. Service is always wonderful, it is always perfectly clean and elegant. When I walk in I love seeing some "old timers" having a drink at the bar. From my first time to my last they have always been patient and understanding no matter how picky I was. A wonderful place to sit and really ENJOY a meal. The food is wonderful and I want to know how to have my food come out that good in my kitchen. I love that I have been treated with the same respect if I walked in looking my best or when I had only 5 min to get ready for my date.

I feel bad as the reviews on here were quite good, but my experience was horrible. I usually will try a place twice just in case the first time was a fluke, but I just can't bring myself to go again!

I took my wife to Jax's Dec. 08. I called for reservations and specifically told them I was coming for anniversary. When we arrived, it took 30 minutes past reserved time to get a table. When we were seated, it was next to 2 tables, each with 10+ guys drinking to the point of falling over and extremely loud. The food was great, but completely overshadowed by the ambiance. My wife and I ate in complete silence because we could not hear each other talk. I did not complain as the entire restaurant was so loud, there was nowhere we could have moved. I do think the waiting staff should realize that a couple on their anniversary should not be seated by 20 drunk, loud men, however.

That night, I wrote an e-mail to Jax owner explaining my experience. I left my number, e-mail address, and home address and heard nothing back. If they don't have the time for me, then I don't have the patience for a 2nd visit.

Will not be going back.

Went there last night with my wife and we both left really impressed.I'm surprised by a few of the negative reviews I've read here.Our service was fantastic.We had 4 different people wait on us and all were friendly and attentive.The steak melted in our mouths and the lobster was delicious and fresh.Our drinks were well made.The dining room had a very nice ambience, an old style feel with a pianist. The only negative thing I could say was that the asparagus stocks were so large we only got about 5 and it would have been nice to have more tips.
Great place! Will happily go back.

I have been going to Jax Cafe in Beautiful Nordeast Minneapolis since 1965. Over the years I have had club and business meetings, and business and personal lunches/dinners/brunches at Jax. I had my retirement party in the Cosmopolitan Room in 2002 with 150 guests. My church celebrated our 90th Anniversary with a dinner for 255 happy guests. I continue to see past business associates, who I previously introduced to Jax, coming in to entertain their current business contacts and to enjoy their own personal and family celebrations. The pianist plays my favorite song, "My Way" by Frank Sinatra. That's what I always receive at Jax is, "My Way". The food is of the highest quality, the service is excellent and friendly, and the managerial staff is always congenial and professional.

Went to Jax for a biz dinner with clients. 7pm reservation on a Thursday night. Table wasn't ready. Had us stand in the middle of the dining room while they shuffled tables and chairs. After we sat, we noticed that our waitress was nice but overwhelmed, while the menu and wine list was, well, let's just say it was underwhelming. I was expecting a better wine list than one I'd see at a Holiday Inn Room Service menu!

Our frazzled waitress poured wine (finally) and then took our order. She told us they were out of prime rib -- which at 7:30 is totally inexcusable! When it was time for us to get soup, they only had enough for 2 of our 3 orders. My guests had to rock paper scissors for their soup!! Our second bottle of wine took 15 minutes to arrive after ordering, so we had no wine with our soups and salads.

When the steaks arrived they were not properly cooked -- 3 were perfect as expected, 3 were overdone. A rare steak was cooked medium well and was returned. Then the baby-faced manager named Mike who had been apologizing to us all night tried to tell my guest he did not know what a rare steak looked like, that the lighting was bad, and that we should go back into the kitchen to see what it really looked like. After he was done insulting my guest, I told him to get out of my face and leave us alone to eat our mediocre meal. (I was furious!!)

By this time, the waitress was really apologetic, but as well intentioned as people may be, this restaurant was an amateur attempt at a fine steak house. Yes, they comped us a couple of the dinners, but I was on an expense account. I wasn't looking to save money -- I wanted a great meal.

If I want apologies and excuses for dinner, I'll eat somewhere cheaper. If I want a good $35 steak in MSP, I'll avoid Jax and will go to Manny's or Murray's, where they hire adults that know what they are doing. After all, if I am paying that much for a meal, I expect professionalism, not sophomorics and apologies.

Been there a few times and given the popularity, I'm always surprised more restaurants don't have their own fish ponds. That unique feature plus the ambience and the service is what keeps me coming back when I'm in town. It's true that the menu could be updated and that the owners might be making a mistake by sticking to the basic things the "old regulars" like.

My daugher and son inlaw had a great reception there. A night to remember. The staff was very nice. However as I have talked to many family and friends they told me there steaks were to raw to eat. At $50.00 a plate this was very sad to hear. We had almost 200 people so you can imagine the cost. We did request medium.

My wife and I have been coming to Jax for 6 years. I rate my dining experiences based on food, service and ambience. The food here is traditional. Jax has stuck with what works best and it has stood the test of time. If you have a chance to go to brunch it is the best in town (and I have been to every well known brunch establishment). Service is excellent. I have yet to not be seated by a member of the Kozlak family. The ambience brings me back to when I was a kid in the 70's and 80's. The chairs and tables are comfortable unlike some of the more trendy places that feel as though you are sitting at a fast food restaurant. Jax is truly a cornerstone to Minneapolis dining.

Jax Gives me mixed emotions. Nothing at all excitting about the food or menu............. classic/traditional steak and basic ingredients with simple flavor/menu combinations with baked potatoes and overcooked vegetables. If you want simple food and simple plate presentation you may love Jax. Old school servers and attire and classic victorian decor. Yet there is a wonderful charm about the place and you can just tell that the ownership and management really care about their customers and staff. The outside deck is fabulous and the pond outside has fresh trout and is really a neat touch. Their is a lot of pride put into this 100 some year old establishment and they are offering high quality protein but in a boring fashion. I will come back and hope to see some possitive changes.

Very good restaurant. Business casual to dressy attire. Older building in an area that is showing it's age. Not a huge concern though. Once you get inside it's a unique experience where you feel like a part of history. The trout pond in back is cool where you can personally pick out your fish to become your meal. The pond is surrounded by lush gardens and a patio that is heated if needed. The meals were all tasty. The prices are a bit high but not out of category.

This is a great place! Ambiance, class, friendliness, and great food usually. Maybe a bit pricy for what you get but always worth it because of everything else. Try the petite fillet! The Martini menu could use some updating but this just adds to the old world charm. The wine list is nice. The service is great. The outside dinning experience during the spring and summer is special and has a charm all its own.

One of my favorite resturants anywhere!! I spend 90% of my time on the road so that is saying something.

I love Jax for the ambience if nothing else. Great place, a bit dark, but the food is absolutely average and much too overpriced. If you'd like better food, there are plenty of choices in downtown Minneapolis and the suburbs that won't leave you feeling as if you were robbed of a fabulous dining experience.

My Grandfather was a frequent patron in the late 1930's. My Parents often dined at Jax's, so often that the owners became close friends. And I must admit I continue the tradition. But what is more important... Jax has continued to be a fine dining experience. The steaks, seasoned with Jax's seasonong, are excellent. Their brunches are fabulous with more options than most buffets. Their wine list is adequate and the service has always been excellent. Add to this their wonderful surroundings and how can you do any better?

When making a reservation, request an outside table. Not only is the atmosphere beautiful, but you also wont have to deal with the traffic of fellow diners bustling past your table on their way to the buffet. A great place to take kids.

My partner and I went here for Valentine's Day dinner. The service was superb and the food was nice, but way overpriced for what it was. The steak and lobster was good but the potatoes were undercooked and crunchy and the butter for the lobster was served without anything to continually keep it warm, so it it turned cold and solidified quickly. We spent $250.00 on two meals. For that price, I could have gotten higher quality food in Minneapolis.

This is one of the best restuarants I have ever been to. I go to it for all special occasions. It is so beautiful in the back yard. The trout stream and park benches add to the beauty in the back yard. Sunday brunch is the greatest at Jax Cafe. They have so much to choose from adn they even have a piano player.

I have eaten in many of the steak houses around
the Minneapolis St Paul area and no matter how
hard you try you will never be sorry that you went
to Jax. The Porterhouse at around $35.00 is the
best deal I've found for a "great steak".

I've never been disappointed with the food or service. Love the food, the atmosphere and dining on the patio is wonderful. It is one of the first places I suggest to out-of-town travelers.

Great restaurant. However don't sit outside. The waterfall is so loud makes it difficult to hold a conversation. Also there is a funky smell out there. The food is wonderful

Jax has become our family's place to celebrate just about anything; I can't say enough good things about it. From the first time we went there, we loved the piano music, the warm wood-toned atmosphere, the superb service, and the wonderful food. It really has the feeling of a family-owned place that's been around a long time.

The patio seating is beautiful, by the way; you completely forget you're in the middle of the city. Fish swim in the little stream that runs through and I love to feed them bits of my roll.

The wine list is very good. I love the crab-stuffed mushroom appetizers. We've never been disappointed with a meal there. And if you have a special occasion, they give you little commemorative matchbooks. Great place!

Jax is what old NE Minneapolis is all about. Good food, nice atmosphere and a sense of class. Try the patio.

This restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. However, while I could afford the final bill, I didn't feel that the food we were served was worth half of what it cost me. Too bad, because I wouldn't have minded going back.

Jax is a great place to have a beer and a bite to eat. Classic long wood bar that always has sports on the t.v. Great place to go during Gopher basketball season as you are surrounded by fans just like you. Highly recommend it.

It's nice to go to a good restaurant outside of the downtown/uptown area. Northeast Minneapolis has a lot of great restaurants and bars including Jax Cafe. Plus they've got an area you can reserve for parties. Give it a try.
