Jax Cafe

1928 University Ave. NE Minneapolis, MN 55418 | Northeast Minneapolis | 612-789-7297

Location Description:

The definitive Old Minnesota supper club, Jax is the A-number-one spot to wear elastic slacks, tuck in behind the white tablecloth, order a double scotch, and plot how to take over the world. Start the evening off with either a shrimp cocktail or some gummy crab cakes, and then plow right into a pan-fried trout or a massive, aged, on-the-bone steak with accompanying potato. Soon you'll be so full, so happy, so coddled by the reverent waitstaff you'll feel like you already have taken over the world. The outdoor patio is the bee's knees--and in the spring you can net your own trout from Jax's own trout stream!
