While we got rained out on Friday, we got a beautiful day yesterday until after dinner when high winds came in No sneaking in the last days rays as Earl's winds are hanging around along with some heavy clouds
To celebrate our anniversary we saved Jax in Maho for our last evening out A server's assistance opened the door and we knew we were in a steakhouse by the decor but mostly by the wonderful smell of beef, it certainly made us more hungry A detailed oriented hostess showed us to our table, took our water order and told us about the menu additions
Our server Marko was busy with a large table and several smaller tables but provided professional service with limited interaction, he was all business taking good care of all his guests Marko's assistance provided the friendliness and gracious smiles He served the bread with two butters one of which did not last long, blue cheese butter
my wife started with the best tuna tar tar of our 18 days while my red snapper ceviche was one of my favorites, both good size portions
next came the monster perfectly cooked, the tomahawk chop accompanied with house vegetables, our choice of two starches and two sauces my wife selected the parmesan fries while i chose the loaded baked potato, both sauces although totally different were very good, chimichurri and truffle cream But the tomahawk was the star of the show, cut into thicker slices, cooked medium, cut like butter and enough for at least four meals including a lunch before we leave for the airport It was better then ones I have enjoyed in the states
After having our leftover boxed for us, Marko served us a complimentary raspberry parfait that disappeared despite how full we both were Pricing is in line with a top level steak house back home Gratuity is not included, 4 drinks, water, 2 appetizers and the shared tomahawk totaled $245.00 without tip Jax will be on our return list but earlier in the week to have a better chance to left the leftovers
Always enjoy Jax and Bijatzu before that. I know it can be expensive but if the food is good and the service as well I don't mind spending the $$, especially on a special occasion. Glad you had a good experience.
I believe the price was $150.00 comparable to a steak house back home. My grocery store sometimes carries them and will run about $70.00 and not grade beef which makes a difference Bought a long loaf of French bread at Maho market along with some smoked gouda and had enough meat to fill the bread for lunch and dinner on board
