    Over $4 for individual oysters? Insane. Good prices are way too high. Service was very good. Fish was average. Menu is way too small. Covid is over. Let’s get back to a great meal at a reasonable price. This was not.

    Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar - Fort CollinsResponded 2 days ago

    Hi Doug Thank you for your feed back, I apologize you found our price point uninviting. Our prices reflect the quality of the fares we offer. As the first restaurant in Colorado to be recognized by Monterey Bay Aquariums Seafood Watch, we have dedicated ourselves to only offer fresh and sustainably sourced seafood delivered daily. We pay a premium for our goods so folks so far from the coast can experience fresh and responsible seafood! Best, Chris G - General Manager

    It was our first time at Jax and the food and service was absolutely incredible! Overall, just an amazing culinary experience :) Only minor issue was that it was uncomfortably warm inside. Maybe just because it has been a very hot day. We rolled with it though and ordered a cold cocktail to help keep cool!

    Overall, one of my top picks in Fort Collins. My only gripe was that the gumbo was black/very very dark and tasted a bit burnt - maybe I'm missing something, but that's not how I make gumbo or usually find it at restaurants. Mussels as always were delicious.

    Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar - Fort CollinsResponded on June 8, 2022

    HI there, Thank you for joining us, and I appreciate the feedback. Though our roux for the gumbo is dark chocolate in color, it should not taste burnt! I will be sure to quality test, and get with our prep team in these regards. I'm glad we are a top pick, and I hope to you back soon! Cheers, Chris Gundelfinger - General Manager

    The waitress was really annoyed to be serving us. At one point, we put in an order for an appetizer, and then she asked my husband what he wanted for his meal and he ordered and she looked at me and said “What, are you just gonna share that?”, but she hadn’t even asked me what I wanted. It was like 2 seconds after he ordered and she was still writing his order down. We were super confused at that remark, and still not sure what prompted it. The rest of the time, she was really short and gruff with us, like she didn’t want us there. It wasn’t just at us either. Watching her at her other tables, she would interact with them, and then turn around and storm off. Not once did she smile or act friendly with anyone; she literally had a scowl on her face the entire time. Not very “Christ-Like” considering the “Reborn” tattoo on her arm. I understand if it was a bad day, but her attitude really killed the fun night out vibes. At least the food was good.

    Hello there, Thank you so much for joining us. I am ecstatic that you enjoyed your food but, frankly, embarrassed at your description of service. I assure you will be handling this matter directly, as this is not at all our service standard. We are in the hospitality biz for a reason and it is to create amazing experiences, not sell you food. I'll be shooting you a private message as well. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Best, Chris Gundelfinger - General Manager
