Food is actually pretty good, and the restaurant looks great. And, in most cases, I'd be willing to pay a premium for it.

But, the owners missed the point of a premium experience:
+ the super-loud band from coming from the private room really killed the atmosphere (and would be unacceptable at any similarly priced/themed restaurant)
+ In addition, 7 dollars for the valet parking (please pay on way in) is just annoying for this type of place

We had visited the Sax Restaurant on June 4th for our 31st Wedding Anniversary and had an absolutely wonderful, relaxing and delicous dinner/evening. Our crab/avacado appetizer was so beautifully presented it looked too good to eat and it was delicous. I had the pork chop which was cooked to perfection and my wife had the Filet Mignon which was delicous and tender. We had cocktails before but the evening was topped off with their special Thyme Martinis on the Bay and a beautiful sunset to end a perfect evening! We will be back again...save us a seat ! The staff was courteous and was well versed with the wine list and the bartender was a perfect Mixologist! The valet service was punctual and polite. A truely memorable evening...

this restaurant has a nice atmosphere and quality food selections. the only drawback is it is noisy if there is an event going on in the room adjacent to the restaurant.

Growing up,my family had a house in Avalon so I got to know and love the area. My mother is now living at the Emeritus Assisted Living in Cape May Court House so I drove 3 hours from New York. I wanted some place really nice to take her for dinner that would also be a treat for me. To make sure that it was appropriate for an elderly (disabled) person, I checked out the restaurant earlier in the day. They have valet parking for $7 (which is really great) and then went to the hotel around 1:30 looking to make a reservation. Courtney at the front desk was very sweet and did her best to make a reservation but was not able to. I then tried calling around 4:50 to make a reservation but it went into an answering service. The good news is that I took my chance and went to SAX at 5:00. And.....was not disappointed! After explaining my situation, we were able to get a table for two. They had a wedding going on that day so I am sure that they were focused on that special occasion. The atmosphere and decor of the SAX was really nice, and the food was excellent. The meals were presented beautifully and served with pleasure. I believe that the price of this dinner was well worth it! The staff could not be nicer and our waitress, Loretta (Lori), was extremely patient and helpful with the menu. She was very creative in combining appetizers and sides to make the perfect meal for my mother. Everything that she recommended was a "home run"! This would be a wonderful couples hotel since the location is right in the heart of Stone Harbor. Yes, I would return to the Reeds but next time, it will be with my husband and not my mother! But, we did have a really nice dinner and made some wonderful memories. Thanks to everyone and the manager at the "SAX at the Reeds"! I most definitely will return!
