Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar doesn't need to fish for compliments -- the Denver location just keeps reeling them in. This second of the Jax restaurants (the original is in Boulder, and a third opened in Fort Collins two years ago) was named Best Seafood Restaurant in our Best of Denver 2012, and also snagged the award for Best Team of Bartenders.
And now this Jax has been named one of "The Best Seafood Restaurants in the U.S." in the October issue of Travel & Leisure.
Here's the T&L description:
There's fresh catch to be enjoyed in the Rocky Mountains, thanks to this 16-year-old fish house that flies in more than a dozen types of bivalves and fresh seafood from both coasts. Jax has been an incubator for young chefs, including Top Chef winner Hosea Rosenberg, who makes a guest appearance from time to time. Go for $1.25 oysters and $2 beers during the daily happy hour, but be prepared for a crowd on game days (Coors Field is three blocks away). And look for another Jax in Boulder.
