Best Brunch in Kansas City: Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar

Living in the landlocked Midwest often leads to the question "where do I go to get fresh seafood?" With Kansas City being so distant from ocean waters full of my favorite treats, seafood, finding a reputable, fresh source for it seemed challenging. However, after visiting Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar, I can say with confidence that there is a superb option here in Kansas City.

Jax is located on the south side of the Country Club Plaza next to JJ’s restaurant. Its simple, straightforward exterior is a curtain to the beautifully decorated interior, boasting a coastal and aquatic atmosphere.

I met with Jax Kansas City's Assistant General Manager, Adam Von Spreecken, to learn more about its Bottomless Crab Brunch. Yes, that is correct, every Sunday, Jax offers a bottomless crab brunch!

“My favorite part about Brunch is our Bottomless Crab Brunch! I love when people tie their bibs on and just throw down on 2-3lbs of deliciously steamed Snow and Dungeness Crab! It’s fun, messy, unique, and awesome all at the same time!” — Adam V. S.

Dungeness and Snow Crab Legs

Dungeness and Snow crab legs are brought piping hot to your table along with lemon and melted butter.  Again, this brunch is bottomless. Don't be afraid to eat to your heart's content! Jax's sustainable practices and initiatives provided me with a sense of ease as I devoured crab legs by the pound.

“We also offer some delicious side options with the Bottomless Crab Brunch including our biscuits and gravy, crispy potatoes and our homemade Beignets to satisfy any sweet tooth cravings.” — Adam V. S.

Biscuits and Gravy

Jax's biscuits are made in house and lathered with a creamy country gravy.

These aren't your typical grits! Topped with preserved okra and thin strips of scallions, they pack a punch of flavor.

Crispy Potatoes

This brunch classic is simple but delicious. I can't count how many servings I finished and would be embarrassed to disclose the amount.

Pimm's Cup and Bloody Mary

Every quintessential brunch requires a Bloody Mary. However if you are in the mood for something a bit more refreshing and light, I highly recommend ordering the Pimm's Cup!

“All in all a great deal, a fun experience and delicious food!” — Adam V. S.
