Very funky laid back restaurant, nothing fancy, if you want fancy go someplace else. On the other hand if you want good Italian Seafood this is the place. This is where the locals go for Italian seafood. Generous portions for everything, amazing garlic bread, decent selection of beer & wine. Definitely this should be on your list of restaurants when you come to Carlsbad or even when looking for Italian seafood in North County. We are originally from New York and Italian so we know of what we speak, Enjoy!

This is a small restaurant that is good but a bit overpriced. They have a good location but parking is a hassle. They are almost always busy but I think it's mostly to go, we have always had a wait because they really do have a small dining area.

We had visited this restaurant a few years ago so we wanted to go back last night. The servings and cuisine was great BUT the atmosphere wasn't . Reminded us of Chuckie Cheese's at full swings. Kids we shouting, playing their handheld computers and their parents just raised their voices the shout above them. Sorry but, at $40.person, we're not going back. The management did nothing to alleviate the situation.

They serve the most delicious cioppino! We also ordered a seafood platter that could easily serve 3. And the bread --! Oh, the bread. Sigh. You have so many dining options in Carlsbad, but do visit Jays. It is family friendly, has a great homey atmosphere, and good service.

This small place has excellent food and the portions were plentiful. This is not the place for ambiance, but definitely the place for casual dining with delicious food!
