Was such and experience. Your average bar and oyster bar seafood but it was cuisine tier level. The Salmon was cook to perfection. Never had a medium rare choice in my seafood. Perfect. Everything perfect. Definitely going back.

Spent an hour deciding on what restaurant to eat at tonight… and SO glad we ended up here. Flawless meal beginning-to-end. Miranda & Dustin were both awesome - perfect service! Food was 10/10. Highly recommended. Cheers

Fantastic! Literally 10/10 came here after my cousins wedding and they were so polite, attentive and accommodating for our party of 11! Our server was Jose and he was so nice, also the host Bryant was just as good! Again, overall would recommend, will definitely cost you a pretty penny but the atmosphere as well as the food is definitely worth it! A great spot to hit and would recommend the calamari, fresh tuna, the oyster are so fresh and not slimey at all! If your in the city definitely check them out!!!

I've always heard raving reviews about this place so a friend and I decided to try their happy hour. The restaurant was packed but the servers and host were very attentive and friendly. There's a long bar in the middle of the restaurant where you can sit and order drinks. The nice part about this place is that there's happy hour everyday from 3:30 pm - 5 pm! The oysters were super fresh, I would definitely recommend getting some. The cute of gumbo and gumbo fries were delicious and a steal for their price. We also got the Jax strawberry lemonade which was dangerously good, where I could barely taste the alcohol! Overall a really good place to get happy hour or food.

Been to Jax Fish House a couple of times when visiting Denver and we just love it. The bar is always fun and all of the bartenders are great! We had the crab cake, mussels, and the summer squash side dish, which was more than just a side of squash. Super flavorful and overall a great time! Definitely give it a try.

Came here last night for my birthday dinner and these are some of the most enthusiastic five stars I’ve given! I had been itching to go to this place for months so expectations were high. Jax did not disappoint! They were running a little behind with my reservation so we ended up waiting at the bar- the bar was so nice and the service was so good I told them to give away my table and we stayed. We had the calamari appetizer which was better than any calamari I’ve had. My boyfriend and I shared the Hook platter- everything was delicious right down to the unique flavor of the butter. Our man Fred behind the bar really took care of us and anticipated what we needed before we even had to ask! It was the kind of service that we are even still talking about the next day. Really delicious espresso martinis for dessert! What a fantastic experience. Im definitely planning on coming back for happy hour soon. Thank you Fred and Jax Oyster Bar!

Really, really good. Visiting from out of town wanted a good fish restaurant. This place opens at 3:30 and I thought who else would be here on a Monday at 3:30, let me tell you this place fills up quickly. This place was full at 4pm. The have homemade ginger beer, yum. Huge selection of oysters and some on the happy hour menu. The 1/2 lb of peeled shrimp were good bit I wished they were warm instead of cold. The seafood pot was really good too. For desert we had the butter scotch pudding which was very good. We had a very nice lunch/dinner and will definitely be returning.

Had a great meal and service at Jax and I definitely let with a too full tummy. I paired the appetizer crab cake with a small ceaser salad as a main and I couldn't finish it all. I did start the meal with peel and eat shrimp, a few oysters, 2 cocktails, 2 ginger beer, a seafood pot (soup) and finished with 2 desserts and coffee. I was delighted with the bill at $115, before tip. I'd definitely go back and recommend giving this place a visit if you're in the area. :)

Love love love this restaurant. If you're looking for quality, FRESH seafood, this is your place. I have been here on multiple occasions and each time my experience was topped by the quality of food, along with the customer service. Their oysters are FRESh and sooooo delicious. If your looking for oyster from the coast, you have to come here. I never liked oysters before I tried this place. I have tried to find them in Arizona that meet these, but have been disappointed every time. I highly recommend this restaurant, you won't be disappointed. Ohhh and their sangrias are to die for!

Best seafood chowder I have ever had. Loved the atmosphere. Fun presentation on the caviar. Really loved this place.

My husband and I LOVED Jaxs! We came in on a weeknight and sat at the bar. We had excellent service from our bartender. He helped us choose oysters and recommended different apps that we should try. I am not a fan of calamari but Jax makes it different from any that I have had. It was delicious. They have a bigger Oyster menu than I've ever seen and have oysters from different coasts and water. We had two dozen! On top of that we tried the lobster Mac and cheese and my husband had an entree of fried catfish. Everything we had was delicious! We were so happy we dined here and left stuffed. Definitely a must try for any Denver seafood lovers.

Sooo many oyster varieties, yum! We love oysters, so we were so excited to try new ones we've never had. They also had at least a couple variety of crab legs to choose from. Service was good, and our entrees were so delectable as well - my husband ordered the grilled tuna, and I got the blue crab garganelli. It may be best to call ahead for a dinner reservation, as estimated wait time for a table was about 1.5hours when we arrived, so we just ended up sitting at the bar to avoid a wait.


Excellent as always! Love Jax!

Such a fantastic experience! From the waiter being so knowledgeable to the head chef Lloyd bringing out the best seafood I have had! And this is coming from an east coast local! I will always recommend this place to anyone who comes out to Denver!
