had lunch at Jim's and ordered the swissburger with fries. The hamburger was very tasty. It was flavorful, larger and not greasy. If your tired of the skinny, thin burgers, you will like Jim's. The fries were good too. Eat them while their hot though, cold fried are yuck. These are the hand cut fries. Everyone in our party had... More

I began coming here when it was the Brittany in the 1970's. I've never had a bad meal or bad service. Be sure to try the House dressing- unchanged from the 1970's. Steaks are excellent as is lunch. Great place for a great steak.

Jim's is an upper end dinner with a bar. Went there for their lunch special. The place is big and dimly lit with a lot of steps. Careful when you walk in from the bright Sun in the afternoon. Once you eyes Hey used to it, the ambience is nice. The greeter was friendly. But the server we were assigned... More

Greg Comfort owns and manages THE BEST STEAKHOUSE IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS. I have been a loyal patron of this place since 1992, and have never had a bad experience. All steaks are aged and hand cut and you will never find a better cut of beef. The House Salad (Brittney Salad) is a local favorite ! The menu is also... More

Hear from family members that this is the best steakhouse in Bloomington. Steaks were good but my husband didn't care for his lamb chops. Place has multilevels and is musty. Very dark inside. Could use some fixing up.

The restaurant has a great location and menu. It also has a very unique and appealing building, with large trees and flowers outside. I wanted to take my mother out for dinner on Mother's Day and I chose Jim's Steakhouse because my mother mentioned that she would like to go there. I made a reservation for dinner 3-4 days prior....

After much discussion about where to take a group of 9 to celebrate our son's high school graduation we chose Jim's because we knew we could get a delicious steak and hold a conversation without yelling. We arrived a little early and they accommodated us easily which was nice though the host simply pointed the party in the direction of... More

I sat at the bar and ordered the Steak Fillet Sliders. They were awesome and the bartender, Lidsay was outstanding. Her customer service eservice skills were great. It happened to be a Thursday, which was the night for the Piano Bar! Be sure and make this one of your places for great food, great customer service, and great music!

Jim's hands down has the best burgers! My colleagues and I all agree the burgers are great and even the chicken sandwich is delicious. I always get just the cheeseburger medium with potato salad and it never disappoints! Seems like they have made some decor improvements inside as well. The restaurant felt more airy and bright. Great place to enjoy... More
