Description: Since 1997, Jimmy’s has been Aspen’s neighborhood restaurant and bar, the kind of comfortable restaurant where you can dine again and again. Ask any local, and you will hear that Jimmy’s is an “Aspen Institution.” The menu has something for everyone, from the fresh-squeezed margaritas and the “locally-priced” bar menu to the famous crab cakes, USDA prime steaks, and fresh fish. “The menu is designed to feature the finest in American cuisine without being pretentious, served in an energetic atmosphere,” says proprietor (and local) Jimmy Yeager. The energy at Jimmy’s is what really draws a crowd; the bar is nearly always jam-packed and the dining room lively with activity and a mix of interesting people. The welcoming staff provide the best in top-notch hospitality. Jimmy's is "home" for a large community of locals and tourists alike. Plus, it’s the only place in town to experience the steamy rhythms of salsa and tango every Saturday night at 11.

We had dinner here and it was great. We also had lunch at Jimmy's Bodega and loved it! I can't find that place listed separately at Trip Advisor so will review it here as well. The crab cake at Bodega was huge, fresh and almost 100% crabmeat, not lots of breading as in other restaurants. I had the Ecuadorian ceviche... More

We had dinner here without a reservation, and to sit outside we waited about 30 minutes. It must have taken the waitress 15 min to visit us and the whole experience was A long tortuous wait for everything else. A couple next to us asked to move inside because the service was non existent. Than the server showed up. A... More

Don't pass up the buffalo burger! We knew what to order when the table next to us had their food delivered. It smelled delicious. It was delicious! The accompanying fries were perfection. They were hot and crispy with just the perfect touch of salt.

Had the lobster mac and cheese appetizer plus the crabcake app. Both were excellent. Sat on the outside covered long deck. Was a tight space but very nice with the heaters above us. Excellent servers. Great cocktail list.

We chose Jimmy's by default when we found out our other planned choices were closed (not being a skier we were unaware of the off-season). When we arrived around 6 pm , the bar was already filled with local folks on that Tuesday night. We were seated int he dining room and I found that the menu was a bit... More

My wife and another couple went to Jimmy's after an afternoon at the J-Bar. We stayed this time in the bar area, which is where the locals hangout. You can order dinner there and that is what we did. The food at Jimmy's is very good and is a fun place to hang out for happy hour. I have hosted... More

Jimmy's is one of Aspens oldest and best steak houses and also has a great bar scene. Being a local the main restaurant can be a bit pricy for daily dining but prices are on par with most high end steak houses. I usually dine at the bar where they have a varied and great bar menu all of which... More

There are very few restaurants open during the "off-season" in Aspen. Jimmy's is one of them and it was recommended from the hotel. It was packed with the locals. The service was very good. One of our diners had the Baby Lamb Chops appetizer and said it was the "best" that he has ever had. (Believe me, that's a big... More
