Great combination of food quality, service, and atmosphere

They have a nice relaxing bar to enjoy a drink before or after dinner. Atmosphere, lighting, and decor is dark, wooden, appropriate for the type of restaurant that it is. Our waiter, Joe, was first class professional and personable. Menu choices are plentiful and there are hard choices to make... read more

Husband and I had a celebratory dinner on a Thursday night. Seated immediately and ordered Shrimp DeJonghe appetizer and Leinenkugel's Summer Shanty. Wow, the shrimp were really fresh in a delicious garlic, butter, breadcrumb sauce. And having it with the draft beer was heaven on earth! I chose the black bean soup and it was very flavorful, not chunky. Then... More

We stopped at Jimmy's Charhouse on Easter evening since we were staying at the hotel next door and wanted a light supper. The Easter menu looked spectacular, but we weren't that hungry so we settled on splitting a burger and an appetizer of filet kabobs. Our server brought our drinks and a basket of fresh bread and butter while we... More

Pretty far off my (Lakes Area) beaten path, but we will soon be relocating to the west-of-Elgin boonies (Pingree Grove). Closed on our new home on Monday, and needed to get a bite after. The Lady at First American Title recommended Jimmy’s, which we could visit practically without leaving the parking lot. My first impression (aside from the wonderful smells... More

If I am at a restaurant that serves lamb chops-- I order them. Of all the places I've had lamb chops, this is the best. All the other dishes are also very good.

Decided on carry-out when my son and his family were visiting. The Greecian chicken and ribs were amazing. Great value for the money. Large salad, more than enough to go around. Better value than what you would get if you came in.

I have never had a bad meal at this place! Food and service are top-notch. I typically dine at the bar and receive great service there. Highly recommended

My wife and I have ordered meals for take out from Jimmy's several times. The food has always been of the best quality and in quantities good enough to feed three or four people. I hope the reviewers complaining about their in-house dining experience are mistaken. Jimmy's is one of the few non-chain (although they have a few similar operations,... More

Great steak, buy the best one they sell and you won't be disappointed. I've tried several of their steaks, you do get what you pay for. We used to go more often when they were part of the Restaurant.com group.
