“Best Seafood in Boulder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Jax has the best seafood in the Boulder area, recommend having a reservation unless you want to wait and have a drink first, bar is fun to sit at and get oysters.

“Great Seafood 1000 miles from any Ocean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Considering that Boulder is 1000 miles from the nearest ocean, one would not expect to find a top notch seafood restaurant such as Jax. Lots of choices! Dont like what is on the menu, just ask the waiter, they will bend over backwards to accomodate most requests. The vodka infusions are great as well.

“Delicious! Lively Environment!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Deliciously fresh oysters. Tasty mussels! Great Bread! A crabcake without any bread! Imagine that it was perfect. The closeness of the tables was a bit unpleasant.

“Love their happy hour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

I love the oyster happy hours. The other happy hour menu is good for other things as well. I recommend the ceviche, if you do not like oysters.
