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.

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.
