I just love this place and always have. The menu is very varied and the food is great. The ice cream is absolutely decadent and the colas are made in house.

Wow! A line to wait on to get in? Who knew. This is a very loud, crowded, family friendly place. People celebrating birthdays, waiters singing off key. For Northerners, we were told this was a copycat version of JAHN's ice cream parlor in NY. We went for burgers and that's what we got. I had the Dania Beach Burger which... More

Forget diet!!! I mean forget diet completely if you come to this place.... this is the exact opposite of what a healthy lifestyle is all about.... BUT maybe you can close your eye once every once in a blue moon and come here..... We can on a Sunday and made a 15 minute line outside to get seated... there was... More

There's just no reason to NOT try this place out. The food I will say is more diner options but that's not what they're really known for. Never go to this place without a sweet tooth. I have never been more overwhelmed with options and completely satisfied with any choice. Just try it!! :)

They have great sandwiches and the biggest variety of ice cream novelty choices you've ever seen. Everything including the kitchen sink, literally! They get packed but worth the wait!

After a venture out to The Casino at Dania Beach we discovered Jason's. Wow is the first impression I had. With the display outside thrown together gives you the feeling this place is different..and it is. From the freshly made ice cream with several flavors to choose from. To the mountain of ice cream given per ordered item... it's just... More

We knew of Jaxson's and it was a must-do for our trip to Fort Lauderdale. On a previous trip we did not eat there because the line to get in was impossibly huge and we were told that's not unusual. But with the help of some people on TripAdvisor's Fort Lauderdale Forum, I devised a good plan. We were in... More

From the homemade Ice cream, sodas and Kosher pickles it's the best! The hamburgers and HUGE all beef hotdogs are full of deliciousness as well. Great for a nostalgic night out with the family. You're stepping back in time when you walk through the doors of this old time Ice Cream Parlor. Don't miss out!

Much to look at inside, the walls are covered every inch with plates and signs. A little complicated to order icecream and be prepared to eat like a whole meal! Icecream tasted wonderful.

We went to the take out line on a Tuesday afternoon and there were about 5 people ahead of us waiting. It appears they only have one person taking orders and filling them for the take out line which is kind of strange customer service since the line is very long and the wait is interminable. I remember going here... More
