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.

Halibut was overcooked and the Tuna steak was cold. Way over-priced for the quality of the food. The service was 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.

Oysters were amazing as always. The current preparation of the Lobster roll was not enjoyable. The lobster meat was minced and heavily dressed, and the bun was stale.

The scallop dinner was very good.

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.

Love Jax. We went here for my Birthday, since it was my choice. Always get the peel n’ eat shrimp- messy but amazing. We also had some oysters, mussels, fruit de mers and a few bottles of wine. Really good food and atmosphere. Tends to be a tad expensive if you drink like we do but happy hour helps.

Great team of servers, but entree dishes salty (scallops sides inedibly so); tuna poke heavy on the jalapeño, light on the truly Asian flavors; fresh oysters a little mushy (older than right from the ocean). Best dish was the calamari — best calamari we’ve had anywhere.
So for good drinks and good service and calamari, great. Otherwise, go elsewhere for your good seafood dinners.

Food was excellent. We were very pleased with everything we ordered. Service could have been better. Severer brought out a beverage and spilled some on one of our guests, then food was brought and dropped on our table that was for the table next to us. We had ordered the same item however it should have come out later in meal and now we were stuck with it before salad course. Little things like that that were noticeable but overall good experience.

Came here for my birthday once and had a great experience, so I wanted to bring guests here for an experience to celebrate a special occasion. Made notes in open table on celebration but was never acknowledged for the guests. Food suggestions weren't that good (salmon and blue crab pasta). Crab cake is full of filler and lacks crab meat. Fried calamari was mostly fried bread crumbs with tiny squid. Server forgot to put in two of our orders and overall seemed to ignore our table. Food quality and service was just lacking this time around.

Disappointed. I made my reservation for my wife and I as a response to the national oyster day email promo is received from Jax. When we arrived and ordered drinks and appetizers, I was informed that they were out of the oysters that were on the all day happy hour promo. As this was the main reason for our visit on a Thursday night, I asked if there were another type of oyster that the restaurant was willing to substitute instead as it appears that a sufficient quantity wasn't ordered for their own promotion. I was informed that " it wasn't worth it" to substitute any oysters still in stock...so we informed our waitress that it wasn't worth it for us to stay for entrees. Again, this was a disappointing experience

We have been here many times and the food has always been very good. This time, something seemed off. The peel and eat shrimp were mealy, and the broth the mussels was in was so salty, it was inedible. Th wedge salad was great. And the wait staff were also great.

As always, the food was excellent. Jax is an essential stop if you love oysters and seafood and find yourself in Denver. While that may sound surprising, I've had seafood on both coasts, and yes, it is that tasty. Everyone on staff was amazing. Unfortunately, someone needed to go home unexpectedly, so they were short-handed and that slowed things down quite a bit in the dining room. That said, our server was very helpful, and given the circumstances, all went well.

This was fantastic from beginning to end!
Outstanding service from our waiter and even though I Cannot remember his name all of a sudden, it’s no reflection on him. It’s been a wild week for us.

We started with their signature Emersum oysters and calamari. Then my daughter had the fried catfish and they were very accommodating in her not wanting the collard greens.
My husband had the blue crab pasta dish and I had the summer salad with a 4 oz salmon added. We had wine and beer and finished the mea with their key lime pie.
Everything was prepared to Perfection.
We sat outside upstairs on the patio which is large, roomy, and airy.
We will absolutely be back every time we come to town. Highly highly recommend.

The mussels were fishy but the broth was delicious. The shrimp were hard to peel and small too much bay seasoning. I enjoyed the raw oysters.

Food quality to cost ratio is highly over priced.. Raw and charbroiled oysters are more expensive that othe cherry creek and lodo oyster bars. Portion sizes are very small in comparison to other seafood restaurants in this area as well. I do not recommend anything other than happy hour.
