Seafood
We’re more than oysters - we’re Colorado's best seafood restaurant! Opened 2017, this is Blue Island Oyster Bar & Seafood's flagship location. Our approach is to create honest food and drinks and serve them in a comfortable, casual environment. The restaurant’s culture is inspired by memories of growing up in coastal towns with families of oyster farmers and fishermen. Like them, we strive to bring you superb hospitality and delicious food with a commitment to the freshest seafood at reasonable prices. To ensure this commitment of quality, we’ve partnered with Chris Quartuccio of Blue Island Shellfish Farms in Long Island, NY to bring you nearly daily shipments of seasonal oysters and seafood, offering favorites such as Steamed Mussels, Lobster Rolls, Clam Chowder, Crab Cakes, and fish like halibut, Atlantic cod and salmon, to name a few. We invite you in for dock-to-dish dining at its best!

    Happy Hour is our favorite. Food is really good with a good selection, including 30% off wine by the glass. Service was not quick. Solidly there for 15 minutes before someone came to the table, but super nice. One of our items never came out, and after asking they brought out a token order but didn’t charge us. Not perfect, but we will definitely return.

    Rob, we're thrilled that you enjoy our happy hour and food selections. We appreciate your understanding and patience regarding the service and missing item. We look forward to making your next visit even more enjoyable. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us!

    We came for the Wednesday special on lobster rolls, and they were delicious. I just wish you could do something about the sound in the restaurant because it was too loud to easily carry on a conversation.

    We were celebrating Mother's Day! This was a crazy experience. It was our waitress's second week on the job, & the restaurant was very busy, due to being Mother's Day. With that said, it took almost 50 minutes to get our order taken, even for lemons for our water! the wrong main course was brought out before our appetizers. It was a total mess! Both the manager, along with the general manager, approached our table to apologize. Finally, our meals arrived, as ordered. The general manager did the right thing, & compt our entire bill. Because the manager did the right thing, we will be back! After all, the food is really good!

    We thoroughly enjoyed. another fantastic meal at Blue Island! As much as the 3 of us would have liked to have had one of each, we settled on the lobster roll, fish and chips and the shrimp and scallop dish. All were delicious!

    Blue Island Oyster Bar was a delightful treat for Mother's Day Brunch! They have an excellent menu for seafood lovers and not! Amazing kids menu, the drink list is large and the food is top notch! Service was friendly and amazing - not intimidating to novice seafood eaters and well versed in what it is they provide. 5 stars!
