Colorado’s ‘Best’ Seafood Spot is One of a Family of 5 in the State
Open since 1996, this seafood joint in Colorado has been putting delicious food on the table and tons of smiles on happy customers. On a new list of the "Best Seafood Restaurants in Every State," this one stands out as the Centennial State's top place.
When you consider that Colorado is so "landlocked," being the state's "Best" seafood restaurant means something. There have to be hundreds of seafood restaurants in Colorado; can you imagine trying to eat at all of them? How about you just narrow down that list to one?
What kind of seafood do you enjoy, most? Lobster? Shrimp? Scampi? Crab? Oysters? They all sound pretty tasty, right? If your top choice is oysters, you are really in luck with the "Best Seafood Restaurant" in Colorado. Add in the fact that it's smack in the middle of a ton of things to do, you can easily make a day out of your visit to try them out.
You look at these photos and you begin drooling. I've never been known as a big "seafood" person, but even I am eager to sit down at this place. In March of 2023, the website 247Tempo.com, a site that loves lists of the "Best [this]," and the "Best [that,] singled out a seafood restaurant in Lodo, in Denver, as the best seafood restaurant in Colorado. This restaurant can hold its head high as being in the top 50 in the entire country.

On the bright side, you don't necessarily have to live in the Denver area to get the same quality of seafood as this one in LoDo, as that location is one of five that they have in Colorado; plus, they have one in Kanas City. they are Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar. If you are already a fan of Jax, you know that this is hardly the first time that they have been at the top of a "Best" list, and that just shows you how hard they work to keep the consistency of quality going.
247Tempo.com's review of Jax in Lodo talks about their proprietary oyster (I didn't even know you could do that):
...the buttery and low-salinity Emersum – bred in partnership with Virginia’s Rappahannock Oyster Co.
They have great food, and an awesome happy hour, and they're in Lodo. It does all add up to being the "Best Seafood Restaurant in Colorado."
