I ordered the Dungeness crab and poured water out of the legs. The crab was mushy and fishy. No sides for $200.00 bucks... with no alcohol! Pass

Anything from the oyster bar is always good! So happy they keep our favorite west coast oysters fresh and in stock. The grouper was amazing and highly recommend. The valentines surf

Overall though a terrific meal and still one of our favorite spots.

Definitely the worst food experience at Jax we have encountered. The Glendale location has always been 4-5 levels down with food taste/quality/dishes when compared to the LoDo location, and we know that, that is not new. With that being said last nights meal was bad, overcooked, undercooked, flavorless plates of disappointment with an expensive bill that adds insult to injury. There was even an item added to our bill that was not ordered, and that is no big deal, it’s an easy fix.
If there is a vote on whether this location should remain open or closed, we vote close it. It’s nothing but a stain on the Big Red F Group. I could continue to illustrate the garbage food experience but I won’t, and I hope this makes a point.

We have not been back for a while to Jax so we were anticipating a great meal once again and they did not disappoint. Oyster selection was great, the shrimp are always amazing, and the grouper with soba noodles in broth was fantastic. What was even better was the very friendly and outgoing server we had. We’ll be back and likely very soon!

What a fantastic night! They were quite busy and even though we had a reso and some tables were taking longer than normal, we posted up at the bar for a couple Dirty Martinis and the Thai Curry & Coconut Milk Mussels - everything was incredible! We then sat by the kitchen for some raw West Coast Oysters, Chargrilled Oysters (fantastic) and shared the Scallop * Gnocchi dish. The food was fantastic, however the employees here made the night absolutely incredible! Joanna, Arthur, the whole crew!

They have unique seafood selections and they are excellent. We got seated immediately even though we were early for our reservation. We had drinks, a bottle of wine and everyone raved about the food. We have eaten there a number of times and have always had great service and food. We would highly recommend to anyone that wants a great dining experience.

Disappointing for the prix fixe cost. 4 course menu wasn’t creative or particularly tasty (popcorn to start?). Service was slow and inattentive until I complained. I love the regular Jax menu and service and I’m a frequent diner so sad to say NYE dinner wasn’t up to snuff and really not worth the $600 I dropped there.

Service was very good. Food was hit-and-miss. Scallops were overly salty and French fries were limp and greasy. Calamari was delicious as was the creme brûlée. Salmon portion was too small (maybe 4oz max). Lobster mac and cheese, burgers, clam chowder and ice cream were fine, but nothing special. Overall disappointing for an expensive dinner.

Jax used to be our go-to restaurant as we really loved the food and it’s very close to our house. Unfortunately, on our recent visit, the food had really gone downhill. The seafood gumbo, which used to be a delightful, tasty soup filled with lots of seafood, was a thick, gravy-like, terribly spicy/hot concoction with very little seafood. The broth for the mussels was also thick…more like spaghetti sauce than broth for mussels. The ahi tuna appetizer had far too much rice and wasn’t nearly as tasty as in the past. We were very disappointed and, given the number of excellent restaurants in the area, will not be back.

Roasted seasonal vegetables was arugula and I'm not sure what else was in there. The item was removed from the table by the manager, but still it in no way resembled roasted vegetables. The fish was overcooked. A very large party was seated next to us and definitely increased the noise level. The items were way overpriced.
