Named "Best Restaurant in 2011", Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar has taken Fort Collins by storm. Serving up the freshest, most sustainable seafood alongside the highest quality, farm-fresh local produce, Jax has quickly become an Old Town favorite. Jax happy hour never disappoints, with the ever-lively Oyster Bar and a selection of locally brewed craft beers & handcrafted cocktails. With so much fresh fish, they ought to change the city's name to "Port" Collins!
