There is a reason Jax was voted one of the top places to eat in a town with hundreds of choices. We have been here for lunch, drinks, a date, or even a 40th birthday party. Peal Street is the famous mall to walk on and see live shows or other interesting people. All have been really fun with great... More

Always looking to show our guests a great spot in Boulder and Jax's never disappoints. We ate here recently and had a wonderful dinner. The Oysters are fresh which says a lot for a place that is this far from the ocean. Servers were attentive and quick. If you live in Boulder, or are visiting, don't miss Jax's.

Busy spot on Pearl with well-crafted cocktails and fresh seafood. There is a Southern influence from the kitchen and the staff made great recommendations for one of our diners with restrictions. The atmosphere is trendy with the industrial-rustic vibe. Hot spot for happy hour too. The food was fresh and creative.

When we are nearing our trip to Boulder (several times a year) I make a reservation for Jax. From the drinks to the food to the service, it is always a great experience.

I'm not a calamari fan. Usually bland and rubbery. Not at Jax! Tender and flavorful! Nice selection of happy hour tapas and cocktails.

We've been going to Jax for Happy Hour ever since it opened, but I never bothered to write a review before. There are always a few people waiting outside for it to open at 4:00, just to get the best seats at the bar. They started taking reservations a couple of years ago, so make one if you want any...

Interesting decor. Enjoyed the fried calamari, the Australian Sea Bass and the Grilled Pacific Swordfish. The waitress also recommended a nice bottle of Risling that complement all of the dishes. It was crowded, but understandable since the food was great. Would come back again.

The funky nautical decor and bustling vibe give Jax the look and feel of a coastal town eatery. Fortunately, the food stands comparison with anything on both waterfronts, despite Boulder's landlocked location. The kitchen makes a mean gumbo that satisfied even this child of the Texas Gulf Coast, and the fish specialties are succulently prepared and creatively accompanied by side... More

The best part about dining in Boulder is the incredible happy hours. Jax is no exception - great deals from 4:30pm - 6:30pm on apps and drinks. But be weary because the main courses are a bit expensive. I got the Sea Bass which was delicious. The polenta as like pillows of heaven. The rest of my party got the... More
