We had a bit of a challenging meal here at Jax. But I will say the management did everything they could to handle the service and food problems by comping our entire meal. Basically the problem was one of the meals arrived cold and took a while to come back and wasn’t what the person wanted. That being said the senior citizen that we were with behaved very badly and I was embarrassed at the way she handled the situation. Rule is don’t take a picky, rude senior citizen out for dinner and expect a nice evening.

Better seafood than usual for a Colorado restaurant. All appetizers and entrees were very good. Service was also more than adequate. A few tips if you want to try this restaurant- the 2 person booths on the left feel cramped, especially when the bar is packed. If I could do it over again I would have asked for a bigger booth on the right side of the restaurant. The music was 90s R&B which was loud and annoying, I get that Jax is New Orleans inspired but I just wish the music was a little softer. It was kind of strange not to have crackers come out with the oysters. And finally, a full dining experience for two people including one drink and dessert was $150.00, a bit overpriced in my opinion. With that said my wife and I might go back around once a year.

We had a wonderful Happy Hour family birthday celebration, with great service by Emily. Oysters, calamari, mussels, lobster mac and peel and eat shrimp were fantastic. Only thing we personally didn't really care for was the gumbo - just a different recipe than we've had elsewhere and on the salty side (to be fair, Emily warned us that it was salty and a little spicy -the spice level was fine). Excellent cocktails and beer/wine selection, too.

The server only checked in with us to get drinks, appetizer, dinner, and the check. We had 4 interactions with her, and had to get the floor manager to get me a spoon for my gumbo after I couldn’t find her for 15 minutes. It was a cool place, they just need to get cool servers.

I was so excited to find an oyster place with good reviews but this is not the place. I should have trusted my instincts to avoid overpriced seafood in the mountains. The menu looks similar to Shaw’s in Chicago and prices are comparable, but the food is not even half as good. The sea scallops appetizer tastes like ammonia and you get 5 for $36. The crab cake is mostly cake for $21. The oysters were okay and service could have been a lot faster. It was over 20 minutes before the waitress first returned after dropping off our first appetizer. I’m sure that people who have not experienced excellence in seafood will find this place fabulous, but I would have been happier to have eaten at Long John Silver’s for 80% less.

The service, oysters, and calamari were extraordinary. However, the Maine Lobster roll wasn’t a lobster roll. It looked and tasted more like a seafood salad or tuna salad sandwich from Subway. Probably should take it off the menu or alter the description on the menu because it was very misleading from any other lobster roll I’ve had in the past, especially for the price.
