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!

Dave our wait person was very engaging, and knowledgeable. He exhibited the perfect amount of attention to our table. Blue Island is the first restaurant that we have actually gone out to on a date night since Covid 19. We have passed by the restaurant a few times and finally decided to make a rez for last Friday. We had a really great time, so happy that we decided to visit, and we will definitely return. Nice vibe!!

I ordered the grilled lobster, with truffle butter. Excellent but not much lobster. I liked that it was sliced easier to crack but pieces were too small. Will definitely go back so much great items on the menu!

Even though the Highlands Ranch location is much closer, the food, ambiance and SPECTACULAR service beats that location. The drinks, mussel appetizer, crab cake, salmon and fish and chips were delicious. Shout out to our waiter Ke in for making the evening enjoyable and fun!

We waited another 20 minutes for the server to come over then she said, “they didn’t tell me you were here,” even though she brought something to every table around us. My friend didn’t receive her beverage until we asked about it almost 15 minutes after the appetizers arrived. We were brought too few oysters than we ordered. We were charged the dinner price for an entree even though that entree is not a dinner option and we were seated with a lunch menu. Overall, for my first experience at this restaurant I was severely disappointed. The cocktails were poorly made, there was no inquiry about allergies, and the best part was the busser and the oysters. Our server may have also been under the influence due to her forgetfulness and poor service, she kept saying “on my god, I am the worst today”. The poor customer service and price definitely did not align.
