Success! Thanks for posting your review of Jax Fish House. You’ve done the world some good today.

Way way overrated!

Over the years i have tried this place. The oyster selection is good, but the prices are way high. The best part of it all is the sauces that have been offered. During happy hour, however, when prices should be low, if you order a sauce, it costs twice what the oysters themselves cost. Lesson: they always figure a way to gouge you. also, the physical outlay of the place is severely cramped. There is no place that is ... view more

Best seafood in town!

Such a fun place! One of the few Denver restaurants where the wait staff are not ski-bum types -- these folks know the menu and wine list and are right on on their selections. The menu varies seasonally and offers some unique creations. Exposed brick and big fish tank make the place a real eye-catcher. If you're not in the mood for fish you can always go to the standby Best Beef Burger ... it is incredible!

Great food

This place is very nice. The oysters are very good. I had the scallops and was fantastic. One member in our group orderd surf and turf. His steak was over cooked but he never complained. They bought the whole table dessert without us even asking! Excellent customer service finished off a great experience.

What's the hype?

I don't see what everyone thinks is so good about this place! The meal I had was only so so for a 25 dollar dish, and it seems like everything on the menu has something gross added to it to just ruin an otherwise good plate. I sort of liked the crab cakes, but they came with a sauce that was quite similar to thousand island dressing and the salmon pasta would have been good, if it tasted like salmon and not sea water... view more

Nice evening out

The place is definitely hip and cool. The food was good but the ambiance is what definitely makes this place go. My boyfriend thought his seafood platter was tasty. He wished there was more on the plate but he needs to lose weight anyways. I had a nice crab salad (yum).

Very Average

I ate there last night and the food was very average. It was all cooked fine, but for what amounted to a $130 dinner for 2, we could do so much better. The fish, and we ordered one appetizer and 2 entrees, were all fine, very average though and the accompanying sauces did not mesh well with the fish. I doubt I would return.

fresh seafood

My wife and I were visiting from San Francisco and a little hesitant about seafood in Denver. Surprise! Everything was fresh and very lightly sauced, salted and spiced. Good portions. This restaurant would do great in the Bay Area. We were hungry so even though it was happy hour we went straight to the dining room. Service was excellent. When we were done, it was still happy hour, so we retired to the bar, had a fe... view more
