excellent seafood – this is far and away my fav seafood restaurant in Denver. what is so interesting about the food are the flavors.....they always have such unique combinations that simply taste amazing. you have to try the crabcakes...they are seriously the best crab cakes i've had anywhere. comes with a slightly spicy cream sauce w/ diced red/yellow/green peppers. agree that it can get a little loud.
foodie – I went to college in Boulder and Jax's was a place we went for special occasions - birthday's, anniversaries, graduation, etc.. The food is great -the best seafood in Colorado - and the atmosphere is fun - loud at times, but that is part of what makes Jax. Now living in Arizona, my college sweetie flew us back to Boulder for my birthday just so we could eat dinner at Jax. Service is ALWAYS top notch - very knowledgeable staff!
Excellent seafood – Casual and unpretentious, Jax is a fine stop in Boulder. The infused liquors provide a number of twists on traditional cocktails. The crab cakes are excellent, more crab than cake, and the steamers are one of the best bargains in town at $10.95. The mussels steamed with green curry are especially delectable. The barbecue shrimp, unfortunately, are not the traditional New Orleans preparation, but are nonetheless an excellent dish of grilled jumbos with barbecue sauce. On our favorites that we eat at regularly.
Jax's Rocks – I love Jax. I went to college in Boulder and now live in New York City and I am hard pressed to find such a great fish house. All of the food I have had at Jax has been amazing esp the specials. The homemeade drinks are wonderful as well. My favorite was the strawberry infused vodka with lemonade. The atmosphere is great and the restaurant is always crowded and noisy so if you don't like a festive atmosphere, stay away from the weekends. Other than that Jax is one of my favorite places to eat great and innovative fish dishes.
Like clockwork. – This place is "solid!" It's a popular place in a small space, so the volume is up. The bar is always moving it seems, but the service from the bartender(s) is very, very good. The best key lime pie in Colorado! A great wait staff and a funky fish-laden decor. Not for those who suffer headaches easily from noise or crowds, but it seems every service industry person in the area eats here regularly. Great date place.
It's a catch. – I generally think seafood is yucky, but Jax is pretty good. The atmosphere is really nice: chill music, elegant art, sexy waitstaff. The location near the Pearl Street mall is perfect. The food is very fresh and light, and a good selection of drinks. Most nights you can mingle with at least some of Boulder's beautiful people.
pricy for what you get – I feel this restaurant is too expensive for the amount of food you receive. I would say if you like the presentation more than the food value this is the place for you.
