The Best Lobster Rolls in the Mile High City

These seven variations are a great way to celebrate summer

View as Map

Summer and lobster rolls go together like peanut butter and jelly so it makes sense that in the middle of July, even in landlocked Denver, one would seek out the best version of the east coast staple. Seafood centric staples of the Mile High City like the two decade old Jax Fish House or the three year old Stoic & Genuine get their goods flown in daily and prove that you can have fresh fish (and lobster) and eat it too.

If a deserving lobster roll did not make it to this list, nominate it in the comments or send us a message through the tipline.
