Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar, owned by the Big Red F company, is currently planning their seventh location at the Denver Airport at 8500 Piña Boulevard.
The fish house, according to its website, has been “bringing the coasts to the coastless since 1994,” when the first location was opened by owner Dave Query.
Query had discovered his love for seafood when he was living in Chicago back in 1983. In 1988, he met Paul Packer, the President of Northeast Seafood, that had been operating as the only fresh fish market in Boulder since 1980.
From there, the restaurant went on to open five other locations after its original in Boulder, including LoDo, Fort Collins, Glendale, Colorado Springs, and even an out-of-state one in Kansas City.
The restaurant serves up an oyster called Emersum — the name meaning “’em are some good oysters” — which they developed with Rappahannock River Oysters and is a type of oyster served exclusively at Jax Fish House.
The fish house is also part of California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, of which Chef Sheila Lucero is a member.
As of now, no opening date as been set. What Now Denver reached out to Query on Tuesday for more information, but he was unavailable by phone. Recent reporting from Denver Eater states that the details still remain to be determined, but it’s slated to move into Concourse A whenever it’s ready.
