There have to be many better eateries in this area, but this restaurant is located directly next door to the hotel we were staying in and it was easy to walk across the parking lot rather than having to drive elsewhere. A busy place for sure, and a menu that offers numerous choices. But, a top sirloin steak shouldn't require... More

The food was incredibly good on New Years Eve, as usual. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone traveling in the area. They have not cut back on the food as some places have. You still get a soup or salad, the entree and two sides. All great.

This has to be one of the best Restuarants in the area. Steaks were outstanding. So were the side dishes. Portion sizes were huge. Not for eating out on a budget.

There is a good variety on the menu at Jimmy's Char house. My favorite is the London Broil it's the best I have ever had. We had my in laws 50th Anniversary Party here and they were very accommodating. I have always had good service and the drinks are good too!

My 88 year old Father in law wanted to go out for Thanksgiving, so we chose Jimmys because of our business meetings here and the great food we had. They stayed true to our reservation time, were very attentive and everything was fresh and portions generous for the 16.95 it cost, including dessert, salad, stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey with your...

We came on a quiet Sunday night. But they were open for another hour. It took a very long time, ten minutes, for the not overworked waitress to even ask if we wanted a drink. We ordered the Goat Cheese appetizer, a past favorite. While it was good, it seemed a bit skimpy on the cheese this time. The steak... More

Went to this restaurant because I was staying at the hotel right across the way and did not have a car. It was ok. Met a friend for dinner the first night and had steak, which was a little overdone. Also ordered take out chicken from here on the second night which was good.

I absolutely love Jimmy's for a wonderful, relaxing dinner. My family and I frequent this restaurant and always find the staff is most pleasant and accommodating, the food is always very good and the prices are very reasonable. They do not rush you along and are attentive without becoming annoying. They are happy to accept reservations and special requests (I... More

We came to eat for my husband's birthday. I've been a customer of Jimmy's for over 10 years. I have ordered the chicken brochette many times. Today the chicken wasn't cooked all the way, the veggies were too crunchy, I sent it back to be cooked more. They bring it back out the meat is cooked, but the veggies are... More
