Great patio on main floor and upstairs. Food is good. Drinks fairly pricey. Somewhat limited menu but typically always good.

First night of patio only dining. Was pleased to see so many people supporting Jax. Any way to add more heat to the patio would be great!

The rooftop patio was wonderful and something the Denver location does not have. Our server was outstanding as she took great care of and we enjoyed short conversations with her. Our only complaint is that it took a long time for us to receive our entre.

Food was average, drink was awful. I ordered a vodka and cranberry. Barely any cranberry juice and it tasted carbonated. My Cesars salad was all the hard pieces from the middle of the head of lettuce. The lobster pasta I had was fine but a bit bland. Food was fine but not worth the cost.

The shrimp appetizer was very good but the halibut was so boring and ordinary, it was such a let down. For the cost it should have practically melted in your mouth. It was a bit dry and fishy tasting - therefore, over cooked. The service was average as well. So very obviously a franchise.

My husband I sat in the outdoors, upstairs bar area for dinner and drinks. Dinner was outstanding, per usual. The fire pit was on and it was comfortable in just a sweater. Pretty nice for early November. Our server was most pleasant. We felt safe and had a great time!

thank you once again for a wonderful Anniversary. We have been dining at JAX for years now and we are never disappointed. Usually, we visit the Denver location but this round we went to Glendale. They were so on their game! Even our trainee waitress was super nice and ready to go. As always the Oysters were perfect, the drinks, oh so tasty and that Poke! YES! We were a little disappointed in the fried catfish we had, it was just plain. Nothing special, nothing different, kinda blah. We have tried so many things that just explode your tastebuds, but this was not it. It was NOT bad, a great cut of fish, just nothing to write home about. Thanks again for another special evening, and can't wait to come back.
Also, on another note, the take-home meals from this location, specifically the seafood chowder was one of the best I have ever had!

Loved the place! Just the kind of fish restaurant that I try to find. I had the oysters on the half shell. Nice selection. Steamed mussels with the garlic and crab cake. Delicious! Will eat there again when I'm back in the area.

We love this place. Great atmosphere - inside and out, great food, and great service. Miranda was outstanding.

Highlights:
- Peel & Eat Shrimp
- Chargrilled Oysters (to die for)
- Lobster Cavatappi
- Big-Eye Tuna
- Cucumber Lemon-Press Cocktail

We have sat inside and out at this place and it's all good, however, if you haven't caught the sunset from the rooftop patio, you're missing out.

I love their happy hour, the drink selection is small but the food offerings are great. Skip the gumbo fries but everything else I have had is top notch. I also add a wedge salad from the regular menu because it is one of the best in town. Yum. Great service and when it’s not so smoky the view from the rooftop is great.

Food was delicious. Service was extremely slow. The server was friendly, but we waited long than excepted for drinks and our entrees. There wasn't a sense of time management from the server as when to check in with us. I had to ask for our water craft to be refilled multiple times, she left the table dirty and didn't bus the dishes. We would have drank more but she never came over to check on us. Over all could have been a nice dining experience, but the bad service really killed the vibe.

This place used to be so good pre-COVID. Our latest experience was not. We ordered oysters which were good, had to ask for crackers and the waitress only gave us 2. The worst part was the movie theater popcorn oil that they are passing off as butter and was served with our crab legs. Terrible. It got all congealed while we were sitting at the table. I pointed out this was clearly not butter and asked for some real butter. The waitress returned with a fresher pour of the disgusting oil. Also, we came at happy hour but we were charged full price. My husband had to argue to get the bill reduced. Sadly, we won’t be back.
