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 went there the first time on a Saturday night and the place was hopping. The food from the buffet was hot and delicious and everyone was pleased. No ambience but lots of variety and well prepared typical fish camp food with a few exceptions . The second time we went was on a Friday night and we entered from... More

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!

By the time I got back to the table, her food was there. The selection on the buffet was excellent, the grilled fish was good... More

Just to make we don't get confused... There is two Jays. One is the Jays Downtown on Main Street in Albemarle that does not do the buffet and then Jays at Stoney Gap that is the buffet. Both are good and my wife and I have eaten at both. The downtown has nice thick flounder. Stoney Gap has a good... More

Jay's Seafood has buffet and menu items available. Personally, I usually purchase from the menu, but my family and friends always get the buffet. Either way is delicious. On my last trip, my brother talked me into salt-n-pepper calabash shrimp. OMG! I did not need any sauce, because the flavor was totally out of this world!
