The fresh seafood choices are always reliable and well prepared. The monthly three course special is a great value with nice choices. The grilled rare tuna is one favorite!

Jay’s Seafood Restaurant provided an excellent menu with outstanding results. The swordfish was exquisite. The atmosphere of the building itself added to the whole dining experience. Jay’s is a highly recommended restaurant to either enjoy lunch or dinner.

Description
Jay's Seafood Restaurant has been family owned and operated for 41 years. Specializing in fresh seafood, steaks and fine wine at reasonable prices. Our story is rich in history. During the period ranging into the late 1800's, Dayton was one of the leading areas in the nation for flour milling. One of these mills, located on the Miami Erie Canal, was known as the Joseph Kratochwill Dayton Corn and Grist Mill. This building was constructed in the 1850's. Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight you are dining in the former Dayton Corn and Grist Mill.. In 1882, James Jacob Ritty opened the Pony House Restaurant. He commissioned wood carvers from Barney and Smith Car Works to turn 5,400 pounds of Honduras Mahogany into a bar. The fruit of their labors is the bar you now see standing in Jay's. Join us seven nights a week for a great dining experience
