Wonderful Food & Experience!

I was in charge of a surprise retirement party for 20 people. Jim's could not have been more accommodating and helpful. They seated us upstairs in half of that dining room at one big table. It was perfect! Our waiter, Chad, did an amazing job keeping track of everyone's bills and worked very... read more

This is hands down the best steak joint in McLean County. The steaks are aged and coated with a nice salt-based rub that creates a nice juicy steak. The side salad and baked potato are huge and delicious, both in classic, basic style with lots of butter and sour cream on the potato. The atmosphere is fantastic, with a very... More

The beef is top shelf. The staff is friendly and quick. Try the 20 ounce bone in ribeye, it melts in your mouth. Twice baked potatos are not listed on the menu but they have them and they are wonderful. The piano bar adds light background music that makes a relaxing atmosphere.

We had a party of six at this restaurant for a pre-show dinner. Zero for atmosphere. First of all, they had ling tapers on the tables which were extremely top heavy and as predicted, had a tendency to topple over. Most of our table ordered steak and they declared them ok. I had a taste for prime rib. I ordered... More

Took a party of six to Jim's Steak House, 2307 E. Washington St. - Bloomington, IL 61701 (309) 663-4142, for lunch last week. It was excellent. They've just remodeled, new carpet, paint, etc. Looks great and improved atmosphere. We were quickly ushered to our reserved table and promptly met by our waiter for drink orders and informed of the daily... More

Fantastic tasting steaks, the baked shrimp dijon appetizer is the best I have ever eaten. Order the warm bacon house dressing with your salad. You will ask for seconds!!! The only issue I have even had with Jim's Steak House is the interior. I have eaten here for 30 years, and they have never changed a single thing inside. Extremely... More

We have been to Jim's Steak House several times and, of course, we go for the steak. I have had the rib-eye and the prime rib, both of which are excellent! The great thing about Jim's, though, is that the other aspects of the meal are just as delicious. If you go, be sure to order their Brittany house dressing... More

We dine at Jim's quite often and really appreciate the great service and meals. There Steaks are always delicious. If you're dining at Jim's be sure to order the Britany Dressing on your salad. It is the best Salad Dressing I have ever eaten. If you are only interested in a Salad. The Maurice Salad with the Britney Dressing is... More

I went for dinner with my mom and sister. Both my sister and I had the small tenderloin filet which was very tender and done to perfections. The mashed sweet potatoes were a little watery, but had a good flavor. My mother had the Prime Rib and the serving was very large. She indicates it was very good. I was... More
