Jimmy's Steer House - a basic restaurant for any age

My family and I have been to Jimmy's many times. It is OFTEN very busy, and there are many people who go there often who are older than us, but the food is good, the sides are filling, and my family of 5 can always do well there (even when our kids were much younger). A very decent meal -... read more

We have been going here for years and are never disappointed. My husband is all about parking - and they have their own lot so big points for him there! You are seated almost immediately even at busy times. The wait staff are always friendly and efficient. The food is fresh, nicely seasoned and home cooked. Nice hot rolls with... More

We love this place. At lunch it is always filled with locals who have time on their hands and enjoy value (read this as retirees). Service is quick, attentive without being overbearing and friendly. The sirloin tips are fantastic. I just tried the Scallops Florentine-it was marvelous and I'll order it again. My partner and I both favor the rice... More

This popular Arlington steakhouse offers a Cheers atmosphere with quality food and service. Our only regret was not ordering dessert! Next time, we'll order the rice pudding first!

Haven't been there in a long while and decided at the last minute to visit the restaurant again. Surprisingly the restaurant was not busy at dinner time and we walked right in. The hosts (males) were for the most part nice. There was one with glasses and a five o'clock shadow that didn't look like he enjoyed being there and... More

Stop in for an early dinner and the place was packed already. Outdated decor but the food was good and the prices were better. Will be back soon!

My wife and I stopped by for Sunday lunch driving from Worcester. She had a salmon en casserole and I had a marinated strip steak. Both were superb. The steak medium was just right and with the marinade, needed no steak sauce. Was greeted by the bartender who was most helpful aiding handicapped people in and our server, John L,... More

I reviewed this restaurant last year, and was quite satisfied with the experience. Well, nothing has changed except my menu choice. This time is was the Scallops Florentine. Very nicely prepared, good sized portion, and the key word... delicious. The other three at the table had Surf/turf, Steak Tips, and Steak Teriyaki. All were very satisfied with their meals.
