Located in Dania Beach about 15 minutes away from NSU’s Davie/Fort Lauderdale campus, Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor and Restaurant is a great place to visit with family and friends, or even to stop by solo. If you are an ice cream fan, this is definitely your spot. If you love burgers, salads, seafood, chicken, wraps or steak, Jaxson’s has it all. If you are looking to visit a traditional South Florida restaurant with a warm environment, you should check out Jaxson’s.
What makes this restaurant so good? It’s never-ending, full-of-options menu. There are options available for any kind of customer and any kind of food lover. When it comes to desserts, you will never run out of possibilities. Sundaes, waffles, frosted floats, Jaxson’s unique banana splits, shakes, parfaits and a long list of other “fabulous creations;” this place offers it all.
The environment at Jaxson’s is also very welcoming. You can choose between sitting outside or inside. Inside, the old-fashioned decorations are extremely attention-grabbing. Old license plates, clocks and decorations reminiscent of the ‘70s and ‘80s give this place its unique personality and style.
The service at Jaxson’s is also very good, making clients feel comfortable. When I visited Jaxson’s for the first time, I ordered ice cream. Since there is an endless variety of flavors and sizes, I wasn’t sure what I wanted. One of the waitresses walked me through all the options, and patiently waited until I decided which one I wanted. It is important to know that everything at Jaxson’s is huge. One scoop of ice cream is a quarter pound; yes, it is a lot of ice cream. The banana split dessert is a great choice, but make sure you are sharing it with someone else because it serves between three and four people.
Whether you are looking for a delicious filling meal or an amazing huge dessert, Jaxson’s is always a good option. Only 10 miles away from NSU, this is the perfect place to take a break from school and enjoy a meal somewhere different. You might have to wait around 15 to 20 minutes in line until there is a table available for you, since a lot of people visit this place every day. However, it is worth the wait, and it will be a decision you won’t regret.
