    It was cool to revisit Jax Fish House after many years away and be reminded of just why they've been such an important pillar of Boulder's restaurant community for decades. The bright and breezy atmosphere is just as welcoming as ever and our jovial server handled our table of 8 with ease. Everything from oysters and mussels to the calamari and craft cocktails were truly firing on all cylinders. A couple of missteps were present however; as the peel & eat shrimp were quite tough and rubbery, while the gumbo cheese fries need a complete reimagining. The gumbo (although delicious) is much too watery at the bottom of the plate and make the fries too soggy to be enjoyable. These small complaints hardly necessitate lowering the five star rating, as human error must always be taken into account and no kitchen is infallible. Their ongoing efforts in championing sustainable seafood should never be left out of the conversation, though it unfortunately is at so many similar establishments. Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar is simply some of the best seafood I have ever found in Colorado, and has been for decades. That kind of consistency isn't just rare, it's virtually non-existent in the restaurant industry. Load me up another bowl of chowder please.

    Came for dinner last night. Those damn oysters 🥰 wow. Had a sampling of two kinds. Along with a tuna poke and paired with a Pinot noir. Outstanding! Great service cute atmosphere and fantastic food!

    This was my first time at Jax though I have lived in Boulder for almost a decade. I my expectations were all exceed. The staff was kind, quick and professional. The food I think is well priced for the quality, amount and taste! Everything was delicious. I went with a couple of friends and everyone really enjoyed their meal (we all got something different) so I don't think you can go wrong. I would recommend making a reservation. And make sure you make it for the right location :)

    While the food was amazing… the service we received really took away from it! We made a reservation and were very excited to have a nice night out. We were sat in the far back corner at a very small table. We put in drink orders and waited quite some time for them to come with one of the drinks not even coming. When our waitress came back we put in our order for 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. We waited a very long time for the food and still not having our oyster shooter that we had mentioned to our waitress multiple times. The table next to us that ordered their food at least 30 mins after us got their food first then finally our food came out. The waitress did not apologize or offer any solutions she even just tossed us onto another waitress to close out our check! Worst service ever I have been to dirty bars with better service than that! Do better.

    We really had the best best date night here. The service was flawless, fast, friendly, attentive, and correct. 👌 Everything we ate was terrific! Highlights were the oysters (plump and fresh), wedge salad (ice cold and flavorful), and bread and butter (sweet and salty in the best best ways). Cocktails were excellent, I like a really specific martini and they nailed it. Lively space but not too packed in. I wanted to try every single thing on the menu. Just go, this experience was a perfect 10.
