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

Been going there for years. Although it is a Steer restaurant we usually go for the seafood, broiled schrod, scallops, stuffed shrimp, or the shrimp and schrod combo. Prices are reasonable. Most of the meals are around $10.

I had a Strip Steak, baked potato and salad. The steak was perfectly cooked at medium rare. My wife's steak tips were also perfectly cooked and delicious. Our friends also enjoyed their meals. Service was very good. Atmosphere... nothing pretentious. Just a nice place. My dinner was $20. A few weeks ago I had the same size steak, and shared... More

I've avoided Jimmy's because of one bad meal I had a few years ago. My wife convinced me to try it again and I'm glad she did. I got the angus meatloaf - fabulous comfort food - and my wife got the steak tip and scallop combo. Unlike a recent incident at Fresh Pond Seafood, the scallops were cooked to... More

Jimmy's is definitely a early-bird special kind of place - you'll find lots of older patrons no matter the time you go. But this place is consistently delish! Prices are reasonable, portion size is good, service is always friendly, food is always good. You'll find classic american type offerings - steak, chicken and seafood - but make sure you get... More
