Our server, Kiya G. was top notch in every way that she could be. The food and drinks were out of this world. If you have the peal and eat shrimp don't forget to D-vein those sucker's. We plan on going back for sure.

Requested a booth which was not available. Seating too close.
Lobster roll was good but, more like lobster salad which was not what was described.

Great dinner and service. We had GF calamari and oysters for appetizer. Very good. Gumbo was outstanding. Just the right amount of spice. My wife loved her Caesar. The lobster roll was pretty good.

Too loud!
Our reservation was not available when we arrived due to a “mix up”.
Hostess was very apologetic and comped us drinks while we waited.
Food wasn’t up to previous experience.
And did I mention TOO LOUD!

It used to be a favorite, but the recent visit was a total disappointment. For example, the Caesar salad was not even cut, slightly warm and missing the cheese, the formerly-favorite pasta dish was super salty (really really salty) and the martini was served with a thick layer of slush on top. Bread was forgotten as well. Service seemed genuine, but was also very slow. The only real positive was we had an additional guest join our reservation and they graciously switched us from a party of four to five. I hope they can get their kitchen back on track because this place used to be amazing.

Very busy because Monday’s they have Happy Hour until closing. NO SPECIALS on Monday because of happy hour. Slow service after initial seating. The food that we had was very good. Not the right time or place for a quiet/romantic anniversary dinner. 😣

Hello and thank you for letting us know about your recent experience here at Jax Fish House. I understand that the volume of the restaurant can become very loud when the place fills up. This is hard to control and certainly not the best atmosphere for a quiet dinner to celebrate and anniversary. We hope to see you in sometime soon in better circumstances. We appreciate the time and look forward to making it happen again. Sam Taylor - General Manager

We’ve been Jax patrons for years and I am always amazed at the chef’s creativity and the fresh seafood available. Last night was excellent on all levels. Our server Kailey was very attentive and quick without being rushed. We have the curried mussels with coconut; a different twist for sure but very good. Then shared the blue crab pasta dish which was awesome. Followed by a split Caesar which is beautifully done.

Our server was terrible for what is supposed to be a nice seafood place. He forgot our sparking water and after I told him it was still on the bill, he said you should’ve told me. Ummmm… no. Also, spilled our martinis and generally was terrible and even served us a water with old lipstick on it. Wow!

We have had many great meals at Jax, last night wasn't one of them. I was craving the lobster roll, and was highly disappointed. It had a very, very small amount of lobster, for a whopping $27. But, the collard greens I had with it was outstanding. Our friends complained that the oysters on their oyster rolls were pretty tasteless. We tried the cucumber martini (on Happy Hour menu), and are not fans. Mussels we tried were pretty good. Overall, only a fair meal, for a pretty high price. Sadly, will be a while before we return.

Wherever we go on vacation we love to eat seafood (yes even in Colorado!). 4 of us loved this place, the decor, staff and service was fantastic. We didn’t have a meal we didn’t like. Had the mussels and sea salad to start and my kids said right amount of kick in the salad. Then we had the halibut and even though it’s not a very strong tasting fish, the sides it came with really completed the plate. My kids enjoyed the crab pasta and lobster role. Our server recommended the tequila cocktail which I really enjoyed and was not expecting to. It is pricey but well worth it.

Seafood is pricey of course, but the weight stuff and service is top notch and that’s really the only oyster game in town. Next time I’ll go just for oysters and some Chardonnay. Monday all day is happy hour.
