Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar - LoDo
Sidle up to the chef's counter where guests request chowder, gumbo, a clambake or steamed mussels that are made to order. The Jax Fish House raw bar offers chilled clams, lobster and crab as well as chef creations that enhance the flavors in various combinations. Pair any meal with one of the beer or wine choices available.
The food was delicious and our waiter was fabulous!
Fantastic service and amazing food
I went for my 21st birthday, and was greeted by the general
Speedy, very tight quarters but Amazing Food!!
While Jax has a nice, bustling charm of a fish house, my oyster expectations were not even remotely met. The Chesapeake oysters (on happy hour) were tasteless, as if the restaurant had washed them of their brine. There was no mignonette served with them and when I asked for it the one they brought was not very good. Granted, we took advantage of the happy hour specials and I guess some would say you get what you pay for - not sure if that's the right approach for a restaurant though.
The service was atrocious - friendly but inattentive. We left after three neighboring tables that were seated after us were served before us (and after we asked the host to intervene).
Chad was our waiter and was absolutely wonderful! I loved the crab sampler and as someone from the east coast it was amazing seafood. 10/10 would recommend the clam chowder as well!
Big Alec was a great server. Go Beavers!
Service was mediocre. Soup was not good. After we told the waiter about the soup, he barely came back to the table.
Always excellent food! And the service was exceptional
Always a great experience!!
First time ever going to Jax - food was great, drinks were a good! Enjoyed our time
Our lunch was fine on a very cold day in Denver. Our welcome host and our server were both extremely pleasant and friendly. We had an early lunch reservation so seating wan't an issue but, as expected, parking in downtown Denver required some time to find a meter a block and a half away. We both had fish and chips and beers, and it was generally quite good. The fries were very good and the slaw (vinegar-based) was great. The fish was no more than average. We had a good booth about midway down the seating area but it was still cool. We noticed many patrons with their coats on. The back of the restaurant, near the restrooms, was frigid. Price-wise, this was about average for the area. Value about average. Again, this was lunch, not dinner.
Things have slipped at Jax. Sub par experience with the family.
Great food, as always. Monday night all-night happy hour is a great deal. We come back every time we are in town. Jax has great seafood!
Monday nights are always great with their specials. The seafood is fresh and the service is great. Even though we make reservations we like to sit at the bar.
The food was OUT OF THIS WORLD (as always)!!!! We love our server, Chad, so much! We've had him on our last 2 visits- 1 was my fiancé and my anniversary and the 2nd was dinner with friends. He's funny and always makes great recommendations!
Thank you Jax and Chad, you did it again!
Jax never disappoints. Great food, drinks and service.
A little pricey for the average diner but well worth it as a treat when you want a great seafood experience
Our first visit to Jax. We arrived during happy hour and had several appetizers and drink specials. The gumbo was very good and the daily special oysters were amazing. We also tried the tuna poke and it was very special. The drinks were whiskey based and we tried a couple of versions that were unique and quite good. We split a dinner which was a Hawaiian white fish, has to be one of the very best fish dishes I have ever had in my life. My wife and I were fighting over who got the last bite. A little noisy but it was during a Saturday happy hour and it is a tight squeeze but the food and service were amazing and we will definitely be back.
Fun place with good food. For Denver, very good place for fresh seafood.
Food and service was outstanding! Great raw bar and wine list.
Great oysters, great service, and the atmosphere was lovely.
Our service was terrific, the variety and quality of oysters was superb, the Top Rope Beer is our favorite and the lobster blt was tasty. We celebrated our anniversary on a wonderful setting! Yea for Jax!!!
We absolutely love Jax Fish House. We have celebrated many occasion here and plan on coming back for more events. The food is phenomenal, the service is stellar, but most importantly, we love the environment and vibe of the place.
My absolute favorite restaurant! Amazing food and excellent service! Love the happy hour menu.
though nice food, it's way overpriced!
lively place, good service
We had an awesome time and the seafood was perfect! The waiter was attentive and made sure we never needed a thing.
The food at this restaurant was amazing - my boyfriend and I were there for happy hour and we had the oysters, crab fried rice, and the ahi tuna poke. Everything was fantastic, cooked perfectly, and tasted great.
Absolute best crab cake in town! The king crab was fine but nothing justifying the price tag. We have had twice the amount of king crab for the same price Jax charges - so we wouldn’t return for that; but we will return!
we like to go to Jax during happy hour and eat off the happy hour menu. We always go for the oysters, some steamed mussels and some of the many other happy hour specials. With drinks and all - it was a very affordable early evening dinner.
Service was a bit slow. Sat at the bar for about 10-15 minutes before we were seen and were asked for our drink order. After giving our orders, the food came out at a timely fashion and the bartenders were more attentive. The food was great and made up for the lack of service. I had the seared scallops and my partner had the carbonara. We also shared the brussels and the cornbread. I would recommend all of those plates. The atmosphere was also intimate and nice for a casual date night. I would definitely go again.
My family of 4 were excited to have dinner since my husband and I first went to Jax years ago. Our waiter seemed to be very nice when we were initially seated however as the dinner progressed on less and less attention was given to us. We had appetizers, dinner, and dessert. Refills on my kids drinks were never offered and our waiter always seemed to elsewhere. It was difficult to have the courses cleared from the table. Disappointed with the wait staff but the redeeming factor was the food!
Excellent service and of course top notch food. Went at happy hour after New Years and it was pleasantly quiet & transported us to another place and time.
Our experience at Jax’s is always great but wish we would have know there was a selected menu on New Year’s Eve. But food and service is always great!
This is the second time I've been here and it's still such a great time with great energy. I highly recommend this location over any other.
We had a large group that went for NYE. Our reservation got a bit held up by the previous table staying for a long time but the manager was very accommodating and more than made up for the additional time we had to wait.
