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.

This place was recommended to us by a lot of people and when we told people we were going there that night, they all said,"You'll love it!" , both locals and tourists alike. First off, you'll be met by Jimmy himself at the desk, great touch in any place. To get to that desk, you walk through a bustling bar... More

The bartenders were fantastic and used plenty of real fruit to make your specialty drink. We went here three days of our vacation because the food and environment were so good!! The bar menu and specials had fantastic food. Try the Jimmy Mac as a side. Don't be afraid to order the seafood, very fresh. A locals hangout but still... More

Ate at the bar off the bar menu. While there is a good selection, all of us got the special of the day: Prime rib for $14. Good size and tasty. Came with mixed vegetables and mashed potato. One substitution of Jimmy Mac (mac & cheese with bacon and Jalapenos). Substituted for the wrong item but brought the correct item... More

Jimmy's had it all -- great food, nice ambience, and very good service. I had the chicken and my wife the fillet and both were superb. We couldn't have been more pleased.

We started to come to Aspen around 20 years ago. Our daughters, who obviously came with us, were teenagers. Now, we continue visiting Aspen with them and now with our grandchildren. Jimmy´s restaurant, in the center of the old mining town of Aspen that nowadays is one of the most important, for us the best, ski centers in the world,... More
