It was over 85 years ago that an old family friend obtained a liquor license and opened Jax Cafe in Bill Kozlak, Jr's great grandfather's building. And as they say, the rest is history.
Bill grew up in the restaurant trenches, bussing dishes and waiting tables at the family business. After purchasing the business from his father in 2000, he bravely took on the challenge of running the third-generation family restaurant.
Continuing in the dining ideal that his grandparents, parents, and uncles built, he believes in giving guests the utmost in personal treatment and establishing relationships with his diners.
This commitment to detail and pride in service aptly explains why Jax Cafe is not only one of the finest dining experiences in Minneapolis, but esteemed by the community as a trusted friend.
