We went for happy hour to celebrate our daughter’s 21st bday. The happy hour prices and menu are excellent—$7 cocktails, $10 poboys, $2 oysters. We were fortunate the Boulder just started allowing socially-distant indoor dining so we sat inside. Yippee! The service by Kim was first-rate. We loved everything we ate and drank and will be back soon.

It was nice to be back at Jax on the first night indoor seating was reallowed. Their long history of providing outstanding service has not changed and the food was great as always, excellent raw oysters and peel-and-eat shrimp especially. Our entrees included really good blackened catfish, lobster pasta and gumbo, and we finished the meal sharing key lime pie which is about the best in Boulder.

Do wish Jax would bottle and sell the aioli sauce from the P&E shrimp, or at least share the recipe with valued customers.........

It was a nice evening -- will be even nicer when this pandemic mayhem subsides and we once again see the crowds around the Jax oyster bar, a true sign normality will have returned to Boulder!

Our server, Brooke, was amazing. She was busy with several tables, but made us feel special and taken care of. The whole staff did actually. We asked for a special table, and got it. Asked for food recommendations, and they were all spot on. We have not been out a lot since restaurant eating has not been pleasant. But this night was. We’ll be back

Very good! The hush puppies were excellent! So nice when they offer a Mocktails list for those of us that don’t drink. Most restaurants don’t do this. Very much appreciated. Service was excellent and the manager (I think that’s who he was) was so nice when helping us pack up our leftovers. Nice that they had a tent during Covid and had everyone spaced out nicely.

Service was orders of magnitude better than usual - eating outside in heated tent with plenty of fresh air around. We enjoyed big eyed tuna - prepared rare - exceptionally delicious with melding of flavors and shrimp skewers. So happy that Jax remains open - safely and carefully.

We went to Jax for my husbands birthday and we are so glad we did! They wrote a personalized message on our table and gave us a free appetizer card. Our server Alex was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She went above and beyond to make our experience amazing. The food was delicious, everything we tried was terrific. I’d highly recommend this place if you love seafood and great service!

The manager, Eric, went out of his way to make sure we were happy and comfortable with our outdoor seating. The food stood up to the reviews. Even if you don't like oysters, you MUST try the grilled oysters. Amazing! Happy I took my family here.

One of the very best dining experiences I’ve ever had. Food and service was extraordinary, quite notable. And after 40 years in the restaurant business I would know. Dinner was so delicious I remember every flavor days later. A great restaurant...and an elegant experience.

The crab cake and oysters were delicious starters and the blackened catfish was SO good. The greens have this tangy sweet flavor and the hush puppies are crispy on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside. I love Jax, the food is always consistently delicious.
