Had an absolutely great meal: The #1 combination, chicken, house made sausage, mushrooms & vinegar peppers. Served with house salad and sautéed escarole. Very delicious. Wait staff was very pleasant, efficient and professional. Though a bit pricey, I was very pleased. Food and service has been consistently very good.

Ate here most recently this past Saturday night and was amazed at how popular this restaurant is and how many diners were still there at almost 10 p.m. The food is quite good, and the service is attentive. The place does get noisy when it's full, but that seems to be the case in most restaurants there days. The fact... More

Be for warned. Had a patient inform me that last week they had been at Jimmy's back in late June. After having a seafood dinner which seamed to tast just fine they left feeling a knife like pain in there abdominal area. After several restroom stops they felt dehydrated and seeking medical help the next morning. Without further ridicule to... More

I had resisted going to Jimmy's for years because of it's location in Asbury Park. I'm an idiot. I've missed out on years and years of truly great food. The valet parking is a nice touch and very comforting. On entering the restaurant, I was overcome by the smells - aromas of my childhood that filled me with absolute joy.... More

I can't help but think about The Godfather or Goodfellas when we come here, mainly because of the decor. However, it's ok, because the service is exceptional, as is the food. The waitresses talk about the food like they cooked the food, and I have never been let down. Be aware that space and time can be an issue, so... More

Restaurant looks like nothing on the outside, valet parking in a "seedy" town. Once inside, a bar with locals, nice seating and delicious food. Portions are huge, service is excellent. Took a friend for a special birthday dinner and was not disappointed. Not my first visit and it will not be my last. Worth the trip and don't be afraid... More

This is a Red-Sauce Italian Restaurant at its best. The thick-cut pork chops were excellent as well as the rest of the meal.
