Pretty cool place 4/17/2008

Love the ribs here, the crab cakes are excellent. This place is nice jem in Glendale. If you like Smokehouse or Tam O'Shanter, I think you'll like this place. Pros: food is good... more

Jazzy 3/3/2008

Nice little friendly bar and grill to eat some good food and listen to some great jazz. But get there early. Seating can be a problem sometimes and people take their time to eat because the music sounds so good. I recommend. Pros: Jazzy Cons: Busy more

COCKROACHS in the BREAD BASKET!!! 11/12/2006

Horrible experience! Cockroache infestd. We gave this place three chances, each time there were huge (3-5 inch) cockroachs. They lie to you and say ther come from upstairs but one even crawled out of the BREAD BASKET!!! The manager couldn't have cared less!!! It was ABSOLUTELY horrible! If you're ok with that, the ambiance is ok. Pros: jazz Cons: COCKROACHS!!!! more

Great Place 9/2/2006

JAX is a great place. Good food, good drink, nice people, good service. There is no Sunday Jam session, and likewise there's no clicks, so please disregard the below review. Great music tuned to the perfect volume, and nothing really bad to say about it. more

best fries anywhere 7/5/2006

the fries are thin but its all about the oil they use...you just have to try them with a their grilled chix sandwich. i swore off on chix sandwiches for years..theyre always soggy and bland, but jaxx's is delicious. i go in there for lunch takeouts so i havent checked out their nite scene yet. great food and friendly staff. Pros: fries, grilled chix sandwich, food Cons: parking? more

not so good 3/5/2003

I went there with my girl last sat. night and i was a little disappointed. I had ordered a $23 filet and it was overcooked. However it was kind of a cool place with a nice atmosphere, but i reccomend go there if you feel like dropping 60+ on drinks( and not get a buzz) Pros: nice enviornment, good jazz music Cons: overcooked food, expensive drafts more

Fun and Relaxing 12/5/2002

Jax Bar & Grill is a great place to go to. Their serivce is excellen, the music is the best, and the crowd is nice too!! I highly recemmend it for those who enjoy a fun and relaxing place after a long day at work. Pros: Inexpensive, relaxing, entertaining more

Best Ribs Anywhere 8/20/2002

I used to die for Dr. Hogly Wogly's until I had Jax. Best Ribs Anywhere. Always perfect, great sauce and the ribs fall off the bone and melt in your mouth. Pros: early bird specials, Jazz Cons: street parking, dark more

Good Food; beware of Jam 8/6/2002

Have been here twice. The atmosphere is nice and homey and the food is good. I do, however, suggest if you are ever considering attending the Sunday jam session, you pass and find another place. It is ultra-clickish and full of student players who have some serious attitude problems. Maybe their parents didn't give them enough attention, but whatever the case, it is not conducive for anyone outside of their inner circle to enjoy sitting in on a song or two. Pros: Good Music, Good Food Cons: Sunday jam session more

40's atmosphere......... 6/29/2002

This is a great place to come during a week night to relax, enjoy good food & drinks, and listen to music. I've been here several times, though not recently, and as suggested by a friend we came early. Thank goodness for that because week night or weekend this place gets crowded. We were able to enjoy our food before the music started and then stayed to enjoy our drinks and the music. I like the corn chowder that they make and although I haven't tried the steaks, I've been told they're good. more

Great jazz and good food! 6/20/2002

Jax is a very nice place for dinner and jazz. The talent rarely disappoints - usually straight ahead jazz, but also r&b. The food is good too - not the best, but right up there with top restaurants in Glendale. The bartenders definitely standout at this place. They simply make great drinks! more

Dinner and Jazz 6/16/2002

Admittedly, I haven't been there in awhile but I used to really enjoy this place. It was great when Preston Smith had a weekly gig here, though the more traditional jazz music is nice as well. Don't expect the kind of earth-shattering stuff that inspired Kerouac and you won't be disppointed. The food is good for typical American fare. Again, it's not going to rock your world anymore than the music will, but it's not bad either. Mostly this is just a place to relax. The atmosphere is pleasantly classy, but not at all pretentious. Get here early or it can be too crowded to enjoy. Hopefully, they will have gotten a new bartender by now. As a friend of mine put it, the old one had the personality of a dish towel. Pros: good music, pleasant atmosphere Cons: bartender boring more

Cool but crowded 6/13/2002

When my wife and I first discovered Jax we loved it. A cool, unpretenious, untrendy place to have a drink and listen to some live jazz. It's a great atmosphere, but unfortunately it's appeal has exceeded its space and we've had to walk right back out the last few times due to a lack of seats. We're just hoping some day everyone else will get bored and move on and it will return the relaxing hang out it was when we came across it. Pros: good music, affordable drinks, not too many kids Cons: crowded more

Groovy 6/12/2002

A nice place to hit with friends to have a casual night out. Cool jazz played on the nights I've been there (weekends), but seats are sometimes hard to come by- get there early. more

Bar=GREAT, Restaurant=BAD 5/19/2002

Busy place, rarely a seat available so come early. Happy hours are great, and the Jazz music is pretty good. A definate pick-up bar, and really good drinks. Now for the down side of Jax: The leach of a restaurant that is attached to the back of the place. They call it Italian, I call it sick. Over cooked pasta, runny sauce, poor service with major attitude. Keep to the better side of Jax bar and skip the grill. Pros: Music, Drinks, Bar Atmosphere Cons: Restaurant, Restaurant Service, Restaurant Food more

Very Good Bar & Grill Of Glendale 5/12/2002

When I Was Living In The Glendale Area, A Cousin Of Mine Want To Check Out Jax Bar & Gill, We Had A Few Drinks & A Late Dinner. Food & Drinks Were Very Good, At Fair Prices. Envoirment Was Like A New York Pub, And Music Was Good. Check It Out Like On A Thursday Or Friday Night. Pros: Very Good Food, Good Music Cons: Wait Time more

Editorial

  • In Short
    With stained-glass backsplashes, brass fixtures and low lighting, this old-school jazz club really hits the mark. There are plenty of viewpoints for checking out big-screen TVs or other patrons lounging at the long bar. Get comfortable in one of the roomy booths and order one of the delicious appetizers or a full meal. Then relax and enjoy top local jazz ensembles. No matter when you go, there's always a good crowd, engaging bartenders and music that's low enough to hear your conversation.
