We spend our winters in Lake Placid and Jaxson's in one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The porch setting offers great views of the lake. The staff has always been professional and go out of their way to be accommodating. Their catfish dinners are awesome. Perfectly cooked and abundant.

This place had some of the best catfish I've ever had. We visited lake placid on a family vacation and we were looking for a local spot for dinner with good food and a nice view on the water. This place hit the nail on the head. We sat outside and had an outstanding view of the lake. They have... More

I've been here several times while visiting my parents and the catfish is wonderful every time. Even none fish lovers enjoy it. I've never tried anything else and don't know that I will deviate.

My local HOG group (15 bikes) did a ride there yesterday, we called in advance with a head count so they could be prepared for us, upon arrival our seats on the porch overlooking the lake were given out and we had to settle for inside, ok not the worse that could happen. This was my first time there, the... More

Prices are good; they always have an excellent buy one/get one of all you can east catfish, hush puppies and cole slaw. Very casual atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable. Some call it a biker bar, but, we find the menu and drinks excellent. We get gift certificates there for local friends.

Our waitress was a young girl, who I believe it the daughter of the owners. She was very polite and tried very hard to give us good service. She did a good job and is learning. The soups were good. I had the Grilled Chicken Ceasar Wrap with Sweet Potato Fries. Both were excellent. Prices were reasonable. We would return,... More

Me and a date and an informal dinner on Jaxson's' screened porch. I ordered chicken and rice soup and it was oily, grim-looking, and tasteless. A redundant chicken and pasta dish was just okay; maybe the soup vanquished my appetite. Did I hear correctly that their young, lean, senior chef had recently moved to a Jaxson's competitor? I've always enjoyed... More

There has been NO Chef change whatsoever, not really sure where that idea came from. As far as your experience I do apologize that it wasn't a pleasant one. One thing we definitely pride ourselves on is our food here at a Jaxson's, please stop back in and allow us to make your next experience in a great one. Thanks More

We had been here once before and were not impressed. Never the ones to make one trip the 'be all, end all', we decided to go back recently. We sat out out on the patio (for the first time) overlooking Lake Henry. A very nice view. After looking over the menu (good selections), I decided to try one of their... More

This is one of (perhaps the only) restaurant around Lake Placid with a lake view . The view is of Lake Henry which is fine but nothing special. The overall impression is that it is generally a bit scruffy, for example how difficult would it be to vacuum the thick film of bugs off the lanai screen? Rest rooms definitely... More

Three of us met up in Lake Placid for dinner. We all drove a good distance to meet halfway. We were seated out in the screened porch, which is rather large and has a nice view of the lake. We really enjoyed the atmosphere; they also let us linger past the closing time of this part of the restaurant. The... More
