Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar in Fort Collins, Colorado has a passion for serving up food includes sustainably harvested seafood and produce that is farm-fresh and local. With a popular oyster bar and plenty of locally brewed craft beers, this is a great spot for meeting up with friends after work.
The starter menu at Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar has plenty to tempt, such as house smoked trout, Buffalo fried oysters, chicken and shrimp gumbo, jumbo lump crab cake and spicy tuna tacos. On the seafood menu, there are three samplers, aptly named �the hook,� �the line� and �the sinker.� Get some friends together and enjoy all three, �hook, line and sinker.� Though Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar is all about the seafood, there is a burger and Colorado steak frites on the menu as well.
Lovely! Wonderful patio and super fresh fish.
Excellent food and service. A bit noisy for a first date. It’s expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.
In my opinion, the menu was not as good as in the past. The emphasis on snow crab is misplaced. That crab is mostly shell-unlike king crab. The risotto and halibut was very tasty, but overpriced. A good restaurant when someone else is paying. Too loud for a pleasant/normal conversation.
We had a great server
Great experience as usual! Very accommodating to the kids.
Excellent as always. Like their happy hour menu better than Boulder.
Had a great dinner with my wife and also celebrating our anniversary. The hostess and wait staff were very excited for use and made us feel like family. Wait staff right there for every little need and so energetic. Great food, great time.
Nothing special. Food was mediocre. We went there on our anniversary and while the food wasn't bad it was not good either. There are better options imho.
First time here and loved it! Seafood was fresh and delicious! Can't go wrong with all you can eat crab legs on Sunday! We definitely picked the right day for our first experience.
Best happy hour in Fort Collins!
Jax never fails to deliver a great experience! We get there ever chance we can. The staff is great, the food amazing and it is such a great atmosphere to gather with friends or to just have a nice dinner with the hubby. Our server on our last visit, Emma, was fantastic. She had great suggestions for our guests from State College and she helped us make the night memorable for them! Keep up the great work Jax, we'll be coming back again very soon!
As always Jax was very good!. We had friends with us from California and they loved it!
I had the Creole Shrimp and it was delicious, a little spicy but not over the top for me, everyone else had the same thing. We shall return to Jax whenever we are craving seafood.
As usual Jax did not disappoint! Great service excellent food. Fun atmosphere. Friendly staff. Far and away the best happy hour in Northern Colorado
Fantastic food, service, and ambiance. Loved it, I would highly recommend for anyone! Great date night place.
Very good food and service. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was well prepared and tasted excellent. Highly recommend.
Great experience at Jax. They always go the distance. Our server Matt was excellent. The food is always fresh and delicious. Oysters are fabulous One of the Best seafood restaurants in northern Colorado.
Everything was fantastic, As Always.
We had the usual excellent dining experience at Jax this past Monday. We really enjoy their "All Day Happy Hour" & happy hour starters for dinner. The calamari is to DIE for, & they always have some new & fun dishes. We'll be back!
We've been to all the other Jax locations and have come to accept that they have a high standard for all their food, and that it is really the only place you'd want to go to have fish, which from their name, is their specialty. But we happened to be in Fort Collins around dinner time and were looking for a really good meal, something not always easy to find in that town. So we went to Jax based on our experiences at the Downtown Denver and Glendale locations and were not disappointed! There are some good hamburger and steak options for you landlubbers, but if you're in the mood for a really wonderful ensemble of tastes topped off with some of the best prepared fish you could hope for, this is where you want to be. Our waiter was helpful and knowledgeable, prepared to talk in depth about the wines and the entrees. GO!
We had previously been to the oyster bar and enjoyed it so we decided to try the dining, but were very disappointed. There is a better Fish restaurant in Ft. Collins. The oysters are very good. We were very surprised the dining wasn't better.
We waited 35 minutes for our appetizers. The couple that came in after us started their meal first. We were just getting up to leave when they brought it. We also wanted a booth as it was spouse b day but they put us in the middle-noisy. They asked if it was ok but what could we say, they already had put 'happy Birthday' on the table. It was a nice touch though. We finished appetizers and went somewhere else for dinner.!
JAX is my favorite place to eat in Colorado! All night happy hour on Monday’s are the best!!
Our server took our drink order and said she would be right back with our drinks and to give us the specials, however she must have went on break because another server brought my beer (the wrong one) and told us he would be right back to take our order. Just unnerving that our original server didn't mention the switch. The table next to ours had to ask a passing server to find who their server was since they had been seated for at least 10 minutes with nobody showing up. It was Mother's day so very busy but I felt rushed.
We had a reservation and we were seated immediately. The food was very good - especially recommend the calamari appetizer and the pork belly cornbread. Skip the risotto - it was mostly vegetables and had a very bland taste. We got the king crab for $38. You actually only get 1.5 legs. The chef did not cut the shells like they do at some restaurants, so it was very difficult to get the meat out. Service was great. Overall a good experience.
The food, service, and experience was absolutely outstanding. I would very recommend to a friend and I will definitely be back!
Incredibly attentive and authentic staff support. Top notch experience, for a group of 13.
The food is always outstanding! The service is lacking. Never enough servers for all the tables. That should be an easy fix.
It was a great time, meal, and drinks. Wished they carried Spring 44 vodka. We will go back!!
Enjoyed seafood at Jax. We shared mussels and a halibut entree. High quality seafood, great service.
Enjoyed my birthday dinner with my fiance there , while in Fort Collins enjoyed every minute of it thank you very much for a wonderful evening.
Fantastic fresh and flavorful seafood and sides! Drink menu offers great selection of craft cocktails and beers. Best aspect of Jax is the people/service. Been three times... always impeccable service.
Food was awesome, as always. Fun, crowded, noisy. Great spot to hang out.
We had an awesome date night there. Wine was delicious and the all you can eat crab was perfectly cooked and surprisingly high quality for a land-locked state. We also had mussels in the white wine sauce - I could've drank the sauce.
Great place to grab a quick bite to eat, or have a nice dinner. Bar has some great had crafted cocktails. Such a popular place the bar seating is limited. Happy Hours is awesome.
Have to say our server, Karen was a awesome. Thank you
This was our second visit in four months as we live in South Dakota. It was fantastic both times and I would highly recommend.
Great experience with the happy hour menu. Best oysters in town.
Lovely meal. Our waitperson recommended exceptional oysters. Always very good.
Food was very small portions 1/4 a piece of corn served with the crawfish broil only about 15-20 pieces of crawfish 1/2 a piece of sausage, calamari was 1/2 a normal portion also barely any seasoning in the crawfish and very mediocre service , my burger was was over cooked dry and not hot which makes no sense , we had a larger group 10 people and a very large tab 668$ and we still tipped Ashley over 20 percent but her service was only worth about 8 percent as she never really asked if we needed more drinks we had to hunt her down to order them . First and last visit was very disappointing not impressed with the food at all !
Did the crawfish boil while it was going on! A new food experience for my boyfriend and I and it was good! Fun place with a great staff.
