Great meals and family atmosphere

We come here every now and then to sit at the bar and eat. The bartenders are great - I suggest the chicken teriyaki - can't go wrong. It can be crowded at times, many of the locals come here - especially 5:00 - 7:00.

We usually dine here when visiting my brother and his wife. A long-time family favorite...serving the best beef in the area as well as fish and seafood...Chicken and pasta dishes. The waitstaff are quite seasoned and very professional...they know their stuff. I normally order the salmon with their special rice ( includes spinach) and a Greek salad...delicious dressing. My husband... More

Jimmy's is a staple in Arlington. Menu seldom changes, quality is always very good and consistent. Tough to get a bad meal here. Still has an excellent reputation and atmosphere.

Been here many times and the food and staff were outstanding....today our waitress was rude/uninterested and only seemed pleasant when she gave us the check. Appetizer was good, zucchini sticks (another waitress delivered). Food was not hot, both meals tasted like they had been under the warmer for too long. Host and hostess had no personality and we (one of... More

I used to come here YEARS ago, back in the late 80s when I was in college and it was always great. The food is still GOOD but not particularly memorable. This last time I had the prime rib/stuffed shrimp combo. The shrimp were very tasty and the meat was good but somehow lacked beef flavor. Not bad mind you... More

I absolutely love Jimmy's Steer House. I've been going for 35 years and you can always get a great meal. The service is fantastic and the food is great. Something for everyone. My favorite is the lobster casserole with chunks of lobster meat. Sometimes the wait can be awhile but the turnover of customers are pretty quick! Enjoy!

We ordered steak tips and stuffed shrimp. The waitress was pleasant and brought bread and butter while we were waiting. Most of the crowd was over 60, and it was obvious that many of them had been coming to Jimmy's for years. Our food was well-cooked and arrived fairly quickly. The menu is not very creative or updated, but Jimmy's... More

We went to Jimmy's with family a couple of weeks ago and found a pleasant place with good food. The seafood and steak offerings are good tasting, reasonably priced, and nicely presented. We found the service a little slow, especially in light of the time of day, but the server was very nice and attentive. Definitely worth a stop.

I have been eating at Jimmy's for more than 20 years. They never fail to deliver great food AND at reasonable prices. Lunch is a great value: you get dinner sized portions of the entree but the salad is extra. The Italian dishes are wonderful, and so are their seafood dishes. Obviously, the steaks are great, but not at usual... More
