Prime rib

I love to get prime rib at jims. The sides are awesome too. Homemade from scratch. This is what makes jims unique and good. Quality food. Maybe a little pricey but I like the food so it's worth it. As a couple we eat for like 75.00. My husband orders the filet. That's with a glass of wine.

We went to Jim's Steak House for my Birthday. We were immediately greeted with very friendly staff and service. We all had Steaks that were tender enough to cut with your fork. Treat yourself to this wonderful steakhouse.

Whoever you talk to in the local area is likely to have a strong opinion about Jim's. It's common to hear of perfectly cooked, amazing steak dinners, with warm and professional service, and I can personally attest to at least a half dozen such experiences of my own. It's also not uncommon to hear of poor cleanliness standards (Exhibit A:... More

Made a reservation, good thing because this off-the-main-drag establishment got busy. Had a wonderful meal, the special, steak and scallops. Poor waitress wrenched her back but still took very good care off us. Pricey but worth it.

Bloomington is not really a food destination so in that sense this is one of the best places to eat there. It's not amazing but it's usually pretty good. Portion size is good and steaks usually cooked pretty well. Salad was tasty. Ambiance very old fashioned and served an older crowd. Service is a little slow, especially with a bigger... More

Pleasantly surprised by the steak and service. Staff was able to find a space for our large party and service was excellent. Filet mignon and scallops were to die for mouth-watering. Also, the Brittany salad dressing was very tasty!

Excellent steaks, soups, salads! Price is higher than chain restaurants but worth it. Had not been there in 25 years, décor is the same but I like it.

Was a bit worried walking in because building is a bit dated. The service was great and the steaks cooked and seasoned perfectly. The baked potato and fries were done nicely. Very glad we stopped.
