Always incredible food and top notch service.
Awesome food and service
We enjoyed everything. I had fish and chips and it was probably best I’ve ever had
Good food, good service, reservations are a must have. Show up early for bar seating. A little disappointed with a table for 3 where a high top table for 6 was divided with a screen. The division was NOT 50/50. We ended up with a 35/65 division, this was on a Monday night. So being cramped was a bit of a bummer.
Oysters were fresh, and the Shrimp and Grits were outstanding!!! The seared tuna was absolutely fantastic - buttery soft, and the best we've had in a long time!
Great seafood, great presentation, located in the heart of Fort Collins. If you like oysters and seafood,mi recommend Jax.
We had a great time. Love the fresh seafood you see when you walk in the door. As a transplanted Easterner it is refreshing to see fresh oysters. We were early for reserved window table but we were nicely seated at the bar for a drink. Great selection of microbrews and their Bloody Mary is superb.
Service was spot on, very clean environment, and the Happy Hour menu is perfect for early light dinner. Can’t wait to have another bowl of clam chowder.
Jax in Fort Collins is amazing. We love going there and always have fun, while enjoying the cuisine. Kelly was our waitress and she was the last time we there, amazingly she remembered us! We enjoyed her, knowledgable about all the menu offerings and will make a recommendation if asked. She also has a terrific sense of humor.
We enjoyed our cocktails, both having the Strawberry Lemonade.
Our two entrees were Creole Shrimp & Grits---we love this meal.
Jax was amazing! The food was great. The house specialty cocktails were tasty and our server Katie was very upbeat and attentive. I look forward to going back, soon!
The food was good...Particularly the key lime pie! Best I've had since the Everglades (1983)!
The service left quite a bit to be desired. Reservations were made for 5:30. We were seated in the back at 5:50. Our waiter, while pleasant enough, spoke and was moving so fast (and it was so loud in there) I couldn't really understand him. We waited longer than anticipated for our food...even the key lime pie (like 15 minutes). Not too bad unless you're on a date and trying to make it to the show on time!
However, it was a Saturday night and they were pretty darned busy.
So, yes, I'd recommend this place anytime other than a Friday or Saturday night.
Great fresh seafood...very friendly staff and helpful.....this is one of our favorite places
We enjoyed the offering for Plates. Everything was wonderful except the red fish was over cooked. The value for the meal was good.
My husband and I view Jax Fish House Fort Collins as our #1 "go to" restaurant when we'd like a nice dinner out in Fort Collins. The food is consistently excellent and creatively prepared. The specials are always worth considering because they are delicious they are artistically executed. The staff, from reception to service, are professional and just fun. We rate Jax Fish House Fort Collins top notch.
Our favorite oyster place on Monday evenings, when we enjoy the happy hour and get some other goodies along with the oysters (calamari, mussels and margaritas or a glass of red). And the service is great!
Jax is a great place for seafood anytime you visit Old Town Ft. Collins. Best Happy Hour prices and value in Old Town. Their calamari is the best in Colorado and the Sunday night crab special is fantastic.
Ask for Sarah, she is outstanding.
Sarah our waitress was FANTASTIC! We were able to relax and enjoy our meal prior to a show and was not rushed at all. The food was great and we will be back!
Didn't even stay for dinner. Made a reservation for 3 only to have them try and stick us at a bar table for two. Far too small and crowded. Wondered why I even bothered to make a reservation in the first place.
Always great food, service, and ambience.
Love happy hour.
Double Thumbs Up !! Always a pleasure. Never disappointed. Great service. The Happy Hour menu is top notch.
Great people. Amazing food. Awesome atmosphere. Recommending you guys to everyone I know! Thanks for the unforgettable experience guys!!
Always a fun time when we go to Jax. The food is outstanding as is the service. I ordered the seabass dish served in a curry with a side of rice. It was the best curry I have ever eaten. My husband had the seared ahi tuna served over a spaghetti squash pad thai....also delicious. Delicious pinot noir from Oregon. Our server knew all of the right things to recommend.
First, I want to be clear that our server Sara was attentive and very professional. It is clear that the wine prices on the wine list have increased at least 25%. We chose a wine titled Imagenry. When we requested a second bottle, Sara informed us that they did not have anymore of that particular wine. We then spoke to the manager Sam. When he came to the table, he knelt so that no one else could hear the conversation. He apologized, of course, never asked what he could do...such as giving us a similar bottle of wine at the price point that we had purchased the first. He returned with two plates of shrimp which we did not order nor want. I have never had this type of behavior from a manager. I would recommend that Sam be treated to several interpersonal skills training. My recommendation is to enjoy one of the other Jax in Colorado.
We went to celebrate a belated birthday for me, and valentines day. We splurged and did the all you can eat crab, and it was worth every penny. SOOO GREAT! I would go back in a minute.
Jax is always a good place to eat. I think they have raised their prices through as we were taken back by how expensive it is. It was a detractor to the evening. Good food just be prepared.
Always great! Our favorite restaurant in Fort Collins
Our service was wonderful and all of our food was delicious. The standout was definitely dessert! The key lime pie was amazing .
The food was very disappointing. The muscles were nice but the broth was tasteless. My wife had the ahie tune entree. It was very spicey. The best part of our meal was the chowder soup. For $100 (including 1 cocktail each) I felt it wasn’t a great value.
Good food but a bit overpriced for what you get.
Never disappoints! Great food, atmosphere and experience!
Excellent food and service. Way too noisy.
The food is always excellent and presented in an appealing manner. I must give a special comment to our server Matt. He is without a doubt the best server we have ever had in a restaurant. He is personable, respectful, and a true gentleman. He fondly remembers us when we dine at your restaurant. He is a true asset to your restaurant.
One of the best things about going to Jax, besides a great happy hour is being served by the best server I've experienced in quite some time - Sarah!!! She is friendly, conscientious, respectful, knowledgeable...I could go on and on. She knows how to do it right! I also love that Jax has done away with using straws, and uses cloth instead of paper products. This has become one of my favorite restaurants in Fort Collins!
What better way to celebrate Fat Tuesday than a night at JAX!
Great food, great Sazarac's, live band, Hurricane's in the Mardi Gras glass!!
Give me a break……..why wouldn't you go!
Thanks to everyone at Jax for your planning and pulling off this fun party!
Great music! Great chowder! Nice to be able to reserve through open table.
The atmosphere was electric Mardi Gras! This place was definitely a party. At our table the waitress came up and put beads around our necks, she was so friendly. We ordered drinks and some raw oysters which were amazing, a little smaller then I remembered. Two people ordered the jambalaya, one calamari and a wedge salad (vegetarian), another a steak. I had Creole Shrimp & Grits which was just what I wanted. We all enjoyed our meals. For desert we had King Cake & our grandaughter found the baby in hers & received a gift certificate. Overall an excellent evening.
We looooove Jax! One of our favorite Fort Collins restaurants. When they’re not busy (like when we were there at 4pm) the service is quick and oftentimes the servers are being observant and take care of biz without needing to be reminded.
Had all you can eat crab. Was delicious!!
We brought our son to this restaurant as a celebration because he was in Fort Collins for a college tour of Colorado State University. We had a GREAT meal and a really fun time!! Matt was an exceptional waiter!! He recommended the sea bass and the key lime pie! So so wonderful!! Thank you everyone for an awesome experience! We will definitely be back!!
Early Valentine’s dinner
The food and service was excellent. Made reservations and did not have to wait.
