I would highly recommend the Boulder location over the Denver downtown venue. Better menu, more personable and friendly staff, and better ambiance / atmosphere.
Great Happy Hour drink and food specials. We had several happy hour appetizers and fresh oysters. Then split an entree for dinner. The service was fantastic. Food was great. Even though we are a land locked state that have great fresh seafood. Definitely recommend this.
We absolutely love love love this Jax location, so much that we drive from the boulder area to come here!!!!
We had a great meal. The waitstaff went WAY out of their way to accommodate us. Food and drinks were delicious in a fun atmosphere
Happy hour is the way to go
Waited over 45 min for chowder!!!
Great restaurant with unique offerings. Awesome happy hour prices, great staff with awesome recommendations!
We were visiting from San Francisco. So impressed with the place from the moment we walked in. The smell was heavenly:), we were there on a Monday which is all day happy hour! So we got our fill of oysters both raw and cooked. All excellent! The wait staff worked as a team and we were never without a fresh drink or need. Thank you Jax.
The oysters were top notch..we did both coasts and were not disappointed. We requested mignonette and it was perfect. Two of us ordered the crab carbonara and neither was able to finish the generous serving (and I'm a big eater).
The lobster tail was disappointing... they are steamed and then chilled..then resteamed
Jax’s impressed and did not disappoint We are from Md and seafood at home is at good at it gets
The King Crab legs were very good and the French onion oysters were a hit In fact we reordered them
Food was excellent especially the oysters. Hard to find great seafood in the middle of the country but Jax has it
Our waiter,Jose, was amazing! Service, atmosphere, oysters, crab, shrimp... 🌟🌟 🌟🌟 🌟!
Food wasn’t great. Pretty overpriced for quality. Can’t say I’d come here again to get any seafood.
Made reservations for 6:45 PM got there around 7:00Pm. We were promptly seated. Everyone from hostess to waiter very kind. Food was pretty darn good. will be going back soon.
We loved this place! Great Waiter and wonderful recommendations! Food was excellent! We will go there again!
Went to Jax while in Denver with my daughter who was celebrating her birthday. The server was great, very knowledgeable and provided several menu suggestions. Complimentary warm chocolate chip cookies were given as a Birthday treat after dinner. A nice touch!
Great drinks, great food, great service, great time.
Peel and eat shrimp, crab cake, cornbread, roasted oysters and gumbo. Great meal.
A-Mazing!!! As always. Food is spectacular and service is top notch!
This is my favorite anywhere!!
Great happy hour menu for a pre-game meal. The crab fried rice and calamari are great!
Food quality is good but the quantity is a bit small ! And they charge with hot robe ( towels) without advance notice !
This is my second time to dine at JAX Denver. Outstanding! I like it better than the one in Boulder.
Everyone loved their meal. Excellent. Service was fantastic. Can't wait to return!
We went there to meet a friend who was visiting from Boston. When we got there and told them our last name, we were asked if we had booked at this specific location - come to find out that our friend had gotten there and was seated, so they overlooked the reservation. Definitely not a good feeling to think you made a mistake of booking the reservation at their other locations in CO, and being told there were no more tables available for the evening - especially with two little kids in tow. Once we were seated, the waiter barely greeted us, left without taking everyone's drink/happy hour orders, and just wasn't attentive. By the time he came back, happy hour was over. Once we ordered, we waited for most items for a unusually long time, and when we finally inquired about our mussels - we were told the restaurant was down to one steamer. When we asked about the gin we ordered, he went to get it from the bar. Poor service at best, and we spent a nice penny there ($250+). A smile goes a long way - and he didn't do much of it, if any. Food was mediocre at best, calamari was super greasy (not crispy greasy either). I ordered the Jumbo Lump Carb Cake, and all I could taste was breading, no crab! We both ordered the seasonal sangria, and that was no good. Disappointed in the food, service, and experience - especially after choosing the restaurant based on positive reviews from others.
Food and service was great. I had a great octopus dish, and my wife was very happy with her gazpacho and the appetizer. The oysters we shared were good as well.
Best oysters I have ever had! The staff was amazing and the food was incredible. We can’t wait to go back.
Excellent meal. Terrific waiter. Food was fresh and creative. Very well timed meal courses- didn’t feel rushed. Cool vib.
Lobster Night every Tuesday- a culinary experience!
Loved the options on the menu and enjoyed everything I ordered. The lobster and shrimp toast is my favorite, but also enjoyed the Dungeness crab, poke, bowfin roe and the mussels in tomato/chorizo broth! The cocktails were delicious too and the service was great. This was my second time there and I will definitely be back!
The last few times that we've been to Jax the prices seem to go up and the quantity seems to go down. Food quality is reasonable but not worth the price any longer. I had a 4oz piece of halibut for $33 with red potatoes and a few mushrooms. The ambiance was less than desirable as well with a group of 7-8 people groping one another at the bar about 1 ft from our table. Had a reservation yet waited 20 mins for a table even though there were tables available. Couldn't recommend Jax for a nice dinner at this point.
Russ our server was really good - observant, but not hovering. He had good suggestions for beer and wine. Betsy came by to check on us - always good to see her and get additional information on the crab boil!
Born and raised on seafood from the Connecticut Shoreline I will definitely return here when I’m feeling homesick . The crab dish and oyster special was incredible !
Great food. Great service. Relaxed. Crowded, but what the heck. Might want to invest in some solar shades for the summer days!
Phenomenal food! The clam chowder was hands down the best ever. Service (Big Red) was outstanding! Highly recommended.
We asked our friend to be our Wedding Officiant. The waiter brought key lime pie and ice cream to celebrate. It was fantastic!
Great way to spend our first anniversary!!
Great Happy Hour Menu!
I had an amazing experience when I went to Jax for my boyfriends birthday. The staff was super friendly and reconized my boyfriends birthday by decorating our table, giving us a dessert and going over the top with a signed birthday card from the staff. I definitely will be coming back to eat!
5 stars for everything! Couldn’t have chosen a better place to celebrate another year of life! Love the bar staff!!!
Great food, great waiter, fun atmosphere. Would definitely go again.
No better place in Denver to get seafood. Repeat customer and every trip has provided great service combined with fabulous food.
