Seafood
We’re more than oysters - we’re Colorado's best seafood restaurant! Opened 2017, this is Blue Island Oyster Bar & Seafood's flagship location. Our approach is to create honest food and drinks and serve them in a comfortable, casual environment. The restaurant’s culture is inspired by memories of growing up in coastal towns with families of oyster farmers and fishermen. Like them, we strive to bring you superb hospitality and delicious food with a commitment to the freshest seafood at reasonable prices. To ensure this commitment of quality, we’ve partnered with Chris Quartuccio of Blue Island Shellfish Farms in Long Island, NY to bring you nearly daily shipments of seasonal oysters and seafood, offering favorites such as Steamed Mussels, Lobster Rolls, Clam Chowder, Crab Cakes, and fish like halibut, Atlantic cod and salmon, to name a few. We invite you in for dock-to-dish dining at its best!

    Oysters and clam chowder were top picks from the family. Main were very good and portions were large. Monday’s oyster half price will probably mean we return soon.

    Had the very best fried clams I've had in years. Husband's risotto was tasty. Oysters were not a great value and were limited in type to East Coast, so we passed, even though that was the reason we came. Wine list tends to the high priced end. In the end, a nice evening overall.

    I enjoy Blue Island Oyster. Although my favorite spot is in Lone Tree. More room and just enjoy the atmosphere. Both places have very friendly servers and take good care of recommendations. Friend's and I come for the great Oysters and happy hour. Been there for dinner as well, would highly recommend.

    Always such a great experience here. I popped in on a Saturday afternoon with my parents for a quick bite after shopping and pleasantly surprised to find they offer HH on a weekend! It was a great deal and they had a lot of options. I would say this is one of the best HH menus I have seen in Denver. Thanks for a great time!

    We have been to Blue Island several times, but we were quite disappointed with lunch on Valentine's Day. We wanted to take advantage of their advertised lobster roll special. The lobster as dry and very stringy; it was very evident that it wasn't fresh and that they probably hadn't used the same quality of lobster on offer for "regular" price. Also, the Caesar salad had next to no dressing on it. We left feeling taken advantage of ... very tired of being attracted to a restaurant by a "special" and finding that it is lower quality or quantity ... not really what was promised/expected after all. Predictability and a good value is what keeps us coming back to a restaurant. Having experienced this type of thing many times over recently, we will definitely be dining out less and less.

    We try to go every week for Oyster Mondays for fresh oysters and roasted oysters. Many of the staff recognize we are regulars. George often comes by to say hallo, which makes us feel at home. One of our favorites is Salmon and Kale Salad. We have been asking to leave out the candied walnuts (due to sugar concerns), and this time Brian, our server got regular uncandied walnuts for us. It was excellent and the best. Brian is amazing. He brings my usual drink order without my having to ask. Brian really gives us 5 star customer service. We love the Salmon tartare special but they don't always have it. Hope it will be put on the regular menu.

    We arrived a touch early for our 2pm brunch reservation but were seated quite promptly. The hostesses were excellent. The server, Linda, however took over 20 minutes to greet us, then almost 20 more to get our drinks on the table. I'm aware of being busy, but she had a party of 8 off to the side that had gone through a dozen oysters and 2 bottles of champagne in the time it too to get us anything at all. We had high hopes that the lack of attention would taper off after the initial wait but it didn't. We got 2.5 dozen oysters, shooters, and some other appetizers and tacos. Drink selection, wine menu, everything was fine, but for the price the service fell way flat. $90/person for super slow service in not a Sunday Funday. I worked as a beverage and service director in fine dining for over 20 years, earned awards, and protected Michelin stars in New York. I'm no stranger to what it's supposed to be. This wasn't it.

    The food lacked flavor and was incredibly overpriced for how generic it was. Not very original and it didn’t seem like a professional chef developed the menu

    We really like dining here. The wild caught gulf shrimp cocktail is a good starter. I enjoyed the market fresh fish (can't recall what is was that day) with delicata squash as a side - very good!
