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.
We didn't expect much from a seafood place in Fort Collins but we ere pleasantly surprised. It was like we were back in San Francisco-delicious. Hit happy hour to get half price "coin margaritas". I don't even like margaritas and I loved these.
I went to Jax for an early Valentine's Date on a getaway night in Fort Collins. My girlfriend and I have been craving seafood since moving out to Denver, and Jax was just the ticket to soothe our need. Right from the outset, our server Sarah was attentive and highly knowledgeable about the menu - inside and out - giving us suggestions and guiding us through our first Jax dining experience. Her energy was palpable and it made us more excited in turn. The food itself was delicious - from the oysters and calamari to the Australian Seabass and Tuna dishes. The tuna was one of the best dishes I have tasted in a long time. As the cherry on top, our craft cocktails were excellent and reasonably priced. Safe to say we left Jax with full bellies, smiles and the intention to come back again soon!
Great meal, and our waitress was great. Definitely will be going back
We visited jax before a concert, it was busy but we had reservations and were seated right away. We started with the calamari, which is one of our favorite appetizers. Jax does it very well every time I've tried. For dinner, I had the special which was a mahi mahi over a lobster bisque with seasonal veggies. Fish was cooked perfect and the dish was very tasty overall - everything went very well together. My husband had the ahi tuna, it was perfect. A great piece of fish prepared to perfection, melt in your mouth. I also love their infused liquors and creative cocktails as well as a great wine list. I've been to 3 jax (Boulder, Denver and Ft. Collins) over many years and they are all fantastic, never have been disappointed.
Amazing, our favorite Fort Collins restaurant. Service is unbeatable and the food is so tasty!
We have been coming for years and this was the best dinner we have had yet! Keep doing what you are doing. Entire crew was awesome.
server seemed to lose interest in us once it became clear we weren't ordering a lot of appetizers or expensive oysters or cocktails. The biggest disappointment was the tuna which must have been low grade in order for a pad thai preparation to make sense. It tasted terrible and was a big shock, but no one came around to check on us until the other people in our party were already finished with their meal, so needless to say, I didn't want to order something else at that point. For a classy restaurant, these were two major dings in my experience (which has otherwise been mostly very positive)
Jax Fort Collins is always a great time and never disappoints - excellent food and service, comfortable and friendly, and the Happy Hour menu is a great way to get an evening started. This is our favorite restaurant in Fort Collins.
