Jax is FRESH!
Named “One of the Best Seafood Restaurants in the US” by Travel & Leisure Magazine, Jax is the home of FRESH and delicious. The world famous Oyster Bar features some of the finest (and rarest) varieties from around the country. Chef Eric Lee receives jet-fresh seafood every afternoon, using refined global techniques to transform simple proteins and farm fresh produce into an unforgettable dining experience.
Josh Ernst is the heart and soul of the Jax Bar. Serving a varied selection of craft beers and an intelligently curated wine list is just the beginning. The cocktails and small batch, house made sodas at Jax are the height of good taste and purposeful preparation. Try Jax Root Beer and you’ll never look at soda the same way again.
Emersum delicious oysters!
The Emersum Oyster is the result of months of research in cooperation with Rappahannock River Oysters (RRO) and is exclusive to Jax Fish House. Fourth generation Oystermen, Ryan and Travis Croxton of RRO are redefining the words “sustainability” and “restoration” in their growing practices. Every Emersum Oyster brings with it the certainty that it was grown at 37°36’28 N Latitude & 76°25’48 W Longitude and the certainty that for every Oyster that is grown, dozens of wild oysters are seeded in an improved eco-system.
What does that certainty mean exactly? It means that we do not just know where the Emersum Oyster comes from, we know where it lives. It means that we can point to an exact spot on a map where the Emersum was raised and know the quality of the water, the environmental influences and the conditions that will produce this consistently rich and delicious oyster with a unique size, taste, texture and liquor that you can count on, each and every time.
