Our People



Matt Myslivy worked his way up through the ranks at Jax Fish House from the shucker to server to bartender to general manager at Jax LoDo. A Colorado native and graduate of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Matt is also a lover of the beach and seafood, and has won second-place trophy for shucking at Jax’s High West Oyster Fest. When he’s not at work, he can be found cheering on the Rockies at Coors Field or hanging out in the mountains.



Chef De Cuisine Peter Garner’s love for the kitchen started at a young age. As a child, the Greenville, Pennsylvania native spent lots of time watching his grandmother cook at her bar and grill in Eastern Pennsylvania. He officially started in the restaurant industry at age 16 as a dishwasher, worked his way up through the line, and attended culinary school at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.


Peter joined the Jax team in 2013. He loves the high-energy setting and the thin line between party and upscale dining experience that Jax LoDo is known for. He is also passionate about sustainable seafood and loves playing around with classic techniques and unusual ingredients.

When he’s not at Jax, you can find Peter snowboarding or hiking in Colorado’s backcountry, exploring new restaurants and cocktail bars around the city, and hanging out with his cat, Sanka.
