You can't go wrong at Jay's. They have the BEST food and service. I just love their salad bar too. Their spaghetti is great and the seafood is perfect. I haven't tried their pizza, but I will.

Food was excellent, service good. Menu was extensive and everyone was able to get exactly what they wanted. There was a gift shop next door which was fun.

Food was good very pricey. Liked that they had a salad bar. Our table was wobbly out door views are nothing to brag about. We will try to go back for supper before we leave the island.

This place can accommodate a lot of customers. I’m sure the salad bar is a popular feature. My experience was just “ok.” The food was fine, but not special. It’s an ok place to go.

At first glance, the prices on the menu are pretty steep. Keep looking, there are a few meals you can order around the $10 price range which also include soup and the salad bar. The soup today was a deliciously loaded homemade tomato basil soup....More

It is a large open floor plan but like everyone says, call ahead. The owner is very nice and will accommodate you if he can.
