**History**If you want to be a part of history Jay?s Seafood is the place to be.. Jay?s opened in 1976 owned and operated by Jay Haverstick. Currently his daughter Amy Haverstick is running the restaurant. Housed in the old Joseph Kratochwill Dayton Corn and Grist Mill. The building was constructed in the 1850?s, and survived the 1913 flood. In 1882, James Jacob Ritty opened the Pony House Restaurant. He commissioned wood carvers from Barney and Smith Car Works to turn 5,400 pounds of Honduras Mahogany into a bar. The fruit of their labors is the bar you now see standing in Jay?s. Dining, drinking, and gaming were the traditional fare of the Pony House; however, legend has it that an even wider choice of vices was available. The establishment had its share of well known visitors? Buffalo Bill Cody is said to have ridden his horse right up to the bar. The notorious John Dillinger (who never robbed a saloon) was one of the regular customers. Prize-fighters, such as Sullivan, Jeffr ies, Corbett and Jack Dempsey, seemed to find the Pony House a favorite place to imbibe. Jay found the bar prior to opening and had it restored inside the old corn and grist mill.**Hours of operation:**Restaurant:Mon-Thurs 5:00pm - 10:00pmFri-Sat 5:00pm - 11:00pmSun 5:00pm - 9:00pmJay?s Kitchen Door Retail shop and wine tastingsFriday 2:00pm - 8:00pmSaturday 12:00pm - 6:00pm
Just a wonderful restaurant for talking and relaxing. Taking in all the historical moments of this place. The waiters and waitresses of this establishment are wonderful and their knowledge of the unique menu is great. A very cozy environment.
A something special place to take someone special to.
Here's my two main tips for the Executive Chef. Every fish you serve should be paired with a sauce. It does not count if the waitress tells you they have Tartar sauce, that is for the Gorton' s Fisherman, not for the patron looking for a semi-creative fish dinner. Second, when you serve raw Oysters, it is best to eat them ice-cold, and cleaned thoroughly, it is really an unpleasant experience eating a tepid, gritty Oyster. Dayton deserves a bit more and you can do better.
Wonderful food here, but to avoid lines, call ahead and reserve a table.
This restaurant does get a bit crowded, and while it is true that the tables are a touch more than close, it is easy enough to talk to those at the table but the surrounding noise will be just enough to give your conversation privacy from other tables.
The decor is very nice...especially the bar and the lighting, which seems very dated and attractive.
All the food is good here, and the prices are nice and not overly inflated. There are tons of great desserts, but my favorite is the bourbon pecan pie, which is tdf.
