Just fair

While this has been a mainstay for many residents of Summerside for many years. I have yet to enjoy a meal that was cooked entirely correctly. Either too well done or not cooked enough. I'm sorry I can't recommend this restaurant.

I hardly ever write a bad review but Gentleman Jim's deserves it. The waitress was helpful and accommodating but our fish and chips was seriously over cooked, and my wife's vegetables were cold and bland.

Excellent and generous portions of food, always friendly staff. I would recommend more lighting as its kinds dark inside. We go here for birthdays and anniversaries.

We had dinner here while on a recent trip to PEI. The restaurant was quite busy but we were seated quickly and our waiter was great. The food was very tasty. We had steak tips, and fish & chips. It was good and filling. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Gentleman Jim's has become our 'go to' family restaurant in Summerside. The staff a very friendly, the food is always hot, delicious and abundant and the price is right. This is also the place to hold your next family meal as they have 2 private rooms and you are guaranteed to be looked after in the best of Island tradition.

I ate at GJ's several times during my 2 week PEI visit and was satisfied each time. The service is fast and friendly and food comes hot, fresh and plentiful. 2 piece halibut and chips was almost too much for a hungry man, accompanied by toasted garlic roll (which seems to accompany almost any meal in PEI ! :-) )...

The waitress was in a bad mood and forgot the cooked onions for my steak and someone else's side dish. Had to get the check adjusted to reflect this. Restaurant not that busy on a weeknight and food very slow to arrive and then nothing to write home about.

This time we visited Summerside we found out GG's had breakfast! Although the menu only had a few items, there were 3 of us and we had 2 of the items. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the sausages were delish... great service, reasonable prices, comfortable atmosphere. Will go back again!

we were looking for a good steak place. Gentleman Jim's was on a strip with all kinds of stores. (Walmart, Loblaws, sport check, mall, dolarama, etc.) It was not along the water front. Pricing was good. It was 13- 25$ or so. I had a hot turkey,as I did not want steak or seafood. It was around 14.00 for that... More
