Great happy hour – I was here last night and had 75 cent oysters and 2.00 beers. Great place to bring your boss or a good friend!
Great Seafood & Atmosphere – A great atmosphere for dates or groups. The waistaff is always helpful and accomodating. The blackened catfish is a must-have. The food is always prepared well. It's enough to leave you full, but not stuffed.
Great seafood – Loved this place. Nice wait staff. Love the seafood. Went on a Thursday and was seated right away. The kids liked it so we will be back.
Best oysters and cold shellfish in the front range! Happy hour is at 4:00 and fills up quickly, go early. – This small, noisey seafood bar is such a kick. The cold shellfish is marvelous. The $8.95 half pound seasoned shrimp are fresh and firm and a real bargain. The King Crab legs are fresh, not frozen, hot or cold they are great.The hot menue changes with the seasons...always something new to look forward to. The staff is outstanding. Same folks time after time. Good place and happy people, esp. Tim and Jackie! Go and enjoy.
This seafood bar's fresh fare keeps diners coming back for more. – In Short
This fun, upscale place is perfect for ordering a bottle of wine and relaxing while eating. The chalkboard lists fresh fish of the day, ranging from fried oysters to peel-and-eat shrimp. The seafood platter includes a variety of goodies in generous portions, a great (and economical) way to feed four. Seasonal menus may offer a sampling of oysters from around the world or a steamer of mussels in saffron broth.
Must Experience! – You must experience Jax if you like fresh fish, great cocktails and oysters. Everything is fresh and the flavor combinations are unmatched. I highly recommend the Calamari appetizer and any oyster selection. Their cocktails ALWAYS hit the mark. Take any martini and you will be satisfied. If martinis are not your "cup of tea", try the mojito or jax cream soda. As for entree, I always take the fish special. It's always something new made with the freshest flavors for the season. The price is above par, but you do get what you pay for!
Fresh fish - rotten prices and ambience – Normally, I don't mind paying 20-30 dollars for a plate of food that still leaves me hungry. But, there needs to be some substance to the inspiration of the dish that makes me ignore the quantity of food sitting on the plate, or the wait service needs to be superior. Jax gets huge points for the freshness, but their dishes miss the mark in a completely uninspired dining experience. From the culinary dimensions of the menu, to the atmosphere and waitstaff, this restaurant is a loud, obnoxious bore.
If you want to pretend that you are in a trendy New York oyster bar and don't mind paying top dollar for average food with poor service, this is the place for you!
Pricey, but great fun! – Went to Jax on for after-work drinks on payday (thank goodness!) There were oysters for $0.75 a piece, but that's where the deals stopped! Three of us spent over $90 in just two hours! But the scene was great and the bartender was friendly (he made an EXCELLENT dirty martini!)
Expect the best+ – Easily the best seafood house in the city!
A great variety of super fresh selections at the raw bar, ample to oversized portions, great service from a super friendly staff!
A sure hit every time, even with a wait when busy. You always feel welcome and never an imposition.
Save a bit of room for some stellar desserts as well!
Jax Rocks – Jax is fun and hip and the place to go for a good time. There are other seafood places in town with as good or better food, but for a great time and fun atmosphere this place is it!
