Average food and friendly service

When we arrived at Gentelman Jim's the restaurant was busting, but we got seat right away. I found the service very friendly. The food however was just average (basic fish and chips and burgers). So many tasty restaurants on the island.....I would not go out of may way to come back.

It can be hard to find a Gentleman Jim's these days but this one is sure going strong. We met another couple here and I think it was the last table. The service was good. The food also good and lots of it.

service was a bit slow. Food was not great. I had Tenderloin Ends and I could only eat half, the rest was too tough to eat!

Great Breakfast, but served only to 11:00 am, not a minute over! There is no breakfast menu, you get three choices from the server. We choose the full meal deal for 8.95$, it came with Eggs, Bacon, Ham, Sausages (3), potatoes and choice of toast! Very tasty, definetly had left overs for our hotel room.

I just came back from supper at Gentlemen Jims. The atmosphere was nice and the server was friendly. After that things went downhill. They sat us down at a dirty table and we sat there and waited while they cleaned it. There were plenty of empty clean tables we could have sat at. When we got our food one of... More

I enjoyed my food at Gentleman Jim's. The chowdah was filled with fish and really creamy. I had the special of seafood casserole. It melted in my mouth. There was so much food, that I had two more meals from it. My server took good care of me.

Wanting a good steak, we went to Gentleman Jim's having only heard good things about the place. My meal arrived and the steak was absolutely uneatable. It was one large piece of gristle. It was simply disgusting. No server came by for a quality check on the meal so, we ate what we could, unhappily paid and left, never to... More

I had their special burger that was part of the Burger Love event. The patties were round rather than flat and the bun fell apart making it impossible to hold with my hands. Their idea of being creative was adding a thick slice of pineapple which I took out because it was already too hard to handle. The flavor was... More

Summerside is rather lacking in places to eat outside of fast food during the off season. That didn't stop us thankfully from finding this little gem. 5.99 for breakfast is crazy! More than enough food for me. My roommate upsized for a bit more but could barely eat it all. Our waitress was great, coffee was always full and tasted... More

This poor restaurant needs a makeover, and no mistake. We were here for the "Burger Love" campaign that runs on PEI every April. It was disappointing, to say the least. It feels like this is one of those older restaurants that runs through its "heyday" and just slowly settles into decrepitude. If you are a visitor to PEI, or to... More
