This is your classic seafood restaurant. They have a nice buffet, or if your prefer you can order off the menu. They have great "sweet tea", a southern favorite. It's also a good place to book parties with co workers, family and friends.

We love Jay's Seafood buffet and Jay's Downtowner is also excellent! The grilled Alaskan white fish is great! They have a room that can be reserved for private parties. And they have some of the best desserts around!
