I want to thank Pasta Jays for staying open late to accommodate two out of towners that had no idea how much they needed scrumptious Italian foods. I don't even remember what we ate since I was inebriated, but it tasted fantastic. You guys are...More

I know they have a wonderful outdoor area to eat and there are Dogs every where. I do not think you would have a problem. The food is GREAT and so was the service!
Would Pasta Jay's offer to comp a meal???? Not!!!

We had a great meal but things go wrong in any restaurant. Some don't match our expectations for comping when this happens & I usually won't return.
Why they do not vary At All when a customer had horrendous service, 5hat the mgr. observed, participated in, denied Ever having a complaint.m..we saw several tables leave, before us, and they wouldn't comp Anything! No wonder they are #56, even behind poor/food poisoning restaurants!
