Jax has been a go-to for me for quite awhile now. The food is always great and the staff are fantastic. Another big plus for me is that it was one of the only places I felt comfortable going to once things started opening up, but prior to vaccines; and even though I'm vaccinated (and boostered now, even), I still worry. And even though break-through infections are far milder when vaccinated, I've not gotten Covid and I still don't want it. And whether people are concerned about it or not, Jax has consistently done an AMAZING job of keeping their outdoor spaces open (even through the winter), etc. The only thing better would be if they required proof of vaccine. One of the safest places I've been lately is the Cancun airport lol! You can't even go there without proof of a negative test. And our concert venues are doing the right thing by requiring proof. Any restaurant that requires proof of vaccine/negative test will be top of my list to support.

Osyters were amazing. Entree was good but I felt like the potatoes were greasy and took away from the light taste of the baramundi. Service was excellent. We were seated across from the door and got a blast of cold air every so often. That wasn't fun. Overall though good place we will be back.

The last time I went o Ajax was a few years ago at their downtown location. I was really disappointed all around because my last experience was so positive. The service was very slow and not responsive. And the food was very low quality. I hate to write a bad review, but I’m hoping some feedback could help them improve before they go out of business.

Don't get the lobster. I purchased a half lobster for about $35. There were two bites of lobster...no joke. One piece that I cut into two pieces so I could have two bites. It comes out shell side up. When I turned it over a manager happened to be walking by. I said excuse me, is this how much lobster you usually serve and he said yes. I didn't expect a ton of lobster, but this was ridiculous. No desire to go back...even though I do love fish and I was excited to try Jax.

Our server was awesome…very experienced and attentive! The peel n eat shrimp were great! Cooked perfectly! We shared the crab cake which seems to be a little mushy amd not worth the cost. We also tried the special cooked oysters which were delicious. We had several main dishes including the lobster roll which was mostly bread, halibut which was over cooked/very dry, and clams and spaghetti which was just ok. The flourless chocolate cake and wine were good. We hadn’t tried Jax even though we have lived in Colorado for almost 4 years. I am a seafood lover, so I am always looking for good seafood restaurants which is hard in the middle of the country. The ambiance and energy are great!

The already limited menu was further limited by being out of multiple items, even at the early dining time of 6:30. Good service but food was pretty pedestrian. Not at all like my experiences at the 17th St location, though I believe the menus are identical.

Used to be a buzz on a Monday night…all day and night happy hour….no more. That is ok, Covid adjustments; however, the dishes we ordered were flat and not tasty. The highlight were the oysters. Crab cake had two weird sauces and the tuna poke had very little flavor.

Such a disappointment from a restaurant that used to be a go to for us.

I was really looking forward to bringing my friend here on her birthday for our trip. They had great reviews. Unfortunately, it was a big let down. The staff and restaurant were nice. The food was horrible. The island peas that come with the salmon were the worst thing I have ever tasted from a restaurant in my life! I don’t know how they ever left the kitchen. The chargrilled oysters were way over priced and also terrible. Calamari was okay. Gumbo too thick, but flavor was okay.

Great experience! We had the calamari for appetizer (4/5), and the. She had the Halibut and I had the scallops. Halibut was amazing, and everything on the plate was as well. The scallops were seared to perfection, but the cauliflower and other accoutrements were meh.

Overall, Jax Glendale was disappointing. Been to Jax downtown with better experience. Glendale, the service was quite mediocre, e.g., brought entree before (way before) soup/salads. Portions are exceedingly small. Server did not really know how to handle guests with food allergies; seemed it was his first time to ever encounter. Professional wait staff know that food allergies is a big red flag unless they want a guest to have an seizure at the table. Food was generally quite nice and well presented; mostly the concern is the super small portions and lack of professionalism of wait staff. Maybe it was an off night, but not likely to give them another chance.

We were glad to see some new menu items and hope it wasn't just for the month of October. The calamari was good, mix of rings, sticks and tentacles. We then ordered halibut and a side of lobster mac-n-cheese, which is a side item. They brought out the mac-n-cheese pretty quick but no entree. We waited quite a long time for our entrees to come out so were disappointed to not have the side dish accompany our dinner. The mac-n-cheese is not a starter/appetizer on the menu and we already had an appetizer so this was a miss. The apple crisp dessert was also good.

We were really looking forward to sitting on the rooftop deck, but they decided to close it because there weren’t enough people.

The food was pretty good, it not the level it usually is.

Our waiter was great! He went above and beyond.

I ordered blackened catfish. Thinking the fish would be star of the dish I was dismayed to be served three large hush puppies accompanied by unpleasantly tough and bitter tasting sauteed kale and three small catfish tidbits that were charred beyond recognition. The fish would not have been acceptable at a no star fast food outlet. My guest's dish was satisfactory but I will not return to Jax Fish House.

We went for my wife’s birthday and, like in past visits, we were not disappointed. Chris G. was our server and was EXCELLENT and very attentive. We recommend the calamari, gumbo soup, fried catfish and the lobster roll. Each part of our meal was well paced and provided a very nice experience for my wife and me. The complimentary key lime tart was a bonus and a wonderful way to end the meal. Thank you very much.
