Unfortunately the seafood was nowhere near what you'd expect from a place like this, shrimps were not deveined, the stone crab looked and tasted like it had been frozen multiple times and the oysters were mediocre. I well say that the corn bread was outstanding and our server was good.

Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar - LoDo
Responded 6 hours ago

Tboychev99 I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy some of your dishes. The Peel and Eat shrimp are served in the shell. I am sorry that ruined your experience. I am not sure about the crab. We do not serve stone crab at the moment. I think you might have had snow crab. Snow crab is caught and typically frozen right there on the ship. I am sorry that we were not able to fix your experience in the moment. We hope that you come back and give us another try. Cheers Matt Myslivy GM Jax Lodo

The most amazing dinner experience of my life! Came to us highly recommend, so we tried it for my boyfriends birthday. I’ve never been into sea food, but figured it was his day so I’d be happy to make it happen for him. I was blown away! Everything we tried felt like the most amazing thing to touch the tongue. We couldn’t stop ordering more! Fred; our waiter, was knowledgeable, professional and hilarious. He put up with our tipsy crew, and really made the night for us.

We went for our 2nd anniversary and Jax absolutely blew us out of the water. Our server Alex (aka Big Al) was incredible, funny, kind, helpful but not annoying. Jax gave us free champagne, free dessert, and even had their entire staff sign a card for us that doubled as a coupon for free shrimp at our next visit. Beyond that, the food and drink was absolutely delicious. Seriously SUCH a great experience!!

I had three dishes. Crab cake starter was very good. Oysters likewise. Cioppino special was not well made with overly thick broth (sauce?) Mainly snow crab legs, which I could not eat because they were in the shells and covered in the thick broth. A few mussels and a few small shrimp. Disappointing, it seemed like leftovers stew.

I had a good lunch there before Covid. This dinner was far from their best, possibly because of Covid. I would recommend to a friend based on prior meal. I would not recommend based on this meal and what I paid for it. I might try again.

Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar - LoDo
Responded on October 6, 2020

Charles H Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback. I am sorry we missed the mark on the Cioppino. That dish eats like a stew/crab boil. We bring out hot towels at the end for your hands. I will chat with Chef on this to make sure that we have the right consistency. It should be more of a broth than a sauce. Your constructive feedback is a great tool for us to get back on track. We hope that we can wow you like we did pre Covid in the future. Cheers Matt Myslivy GM Jax Lodo

Went for happy hour and ordered the HH oysters... they were terrible. No brine, tasted old. I get that it’s happy hour, but these were just bad. Also found a dead pea crab in one.. whoever shucked the oyster didn’t bother removing the dead pea crab from the oyster I was served and was supposed to eat. Our bill came to $70 - NOT worth it. The servers were friendly, but the food was terrible.

Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar - LoDo
Responded on September 10, 2020

I am so saddened to hear about your experience with us. My apologies that you did not enjoy your oysters. We fly them in everyday to have them as fresh as possible. I am sorry that our shucker did not remove the pea crab before it got to the table. Pea crabs only live in the gills of healthy oysters, that are supplying them with nutrients to live and grow. Unappetizing to some but were one of George Washington's favorite foods. We hope to have you back. Cheers Matt Myslivy GM Jax Fish House
