Tis a grand March Soft day. Sea Jax is a few minutes from league tennis at Five Seasons. Amy, the publican and Debbie and Nick are the enthusiastic servers who provide an excellent Sea Jax experience. Sea Jax prepares meals from scratch or fresh from the shell. We are fond of the spicy Shrimp Creole and add a mixture of... More

Had lunch with two friends. We all had fish tacos. I also had a cup of clam chowder. The food was tasty and service was prompt and pleasant. In an out-of-the-way part of Kettering, but worth hunting to find. Lots of beers on tap (although we didn't have any).

We took our friends to have dinner t Sea Jax on a Tuesday night. We all had different items to eat from pulled pork to fish and chips. The portions are big and the the food was served hot by a friendly waitress. My husband loves the lightly battered fish and fries the best. He also likes their pasta so... More

When with 5 other family members for lunch and had a great salad with grilled salmon. The Oyster Rockefeller was excellent as well. Great draft beer selection too!

This place has one of the best burgers in town and make it surf and turf with the mussels. The mussels have to be one of my favorites coming from Maryland (Martha's Mussels) and this place is right up there. Their beer selection is great and their wine servings are an actual serving not just a taste of the wine.... More

Tis a favorite meeting spot for a late lunch following a Five Seasons' Tennis Match. Amy, the Publican and Deb and Nick are the definition of perfect servers. Ron Sweeny is a genius! Sláinte

We always seek out new restaurants to try in our area. Sea Jax is a nice neighborhood bar and grill. On a Saturday night the restaurant had a healthy crowd but was not packed at 6PM. They had several craft beers on tap- a must for us these days. Our server was pleasant and helpful. Spouse had the poutine which... More

My 13 year old son and I just had dinner here and we will definitely return soon. The place has rustic but warm and inviting decor. It is small and cozy, but not cramped. The bar looked well stocked and almost every stool was occupied, but I opted for one of the many craft beers instead of a cocktail. I... More
