nice restaurant with great steaks

The service was above average. I ordered the 3 ounce petite filets with the crusts on it. Two were overpowering and I had to scrape much of it off to taste the meat. the meat was awesome. I wish I would have passed on the crusts. Next time I will just order the 8 ounce filet, The service was... read more

We were weary from traveling so wanted somewhere close to our hotel...this was immediately across the parking lot. The atmosphere was nice. We were seated quickly but our server really put a damper on our evening. We ordered drinks and he brought 3 out of the 4. He came back and stated, "maybe order something else" after more than 5...

My wife and I were passing thru Elgin and Jimmy's Charhouse looked fairly busy, so we stopped in for diner. We were seated and waited on in a very timely manner. We had the wood-roasted chicken, which was very good. I would visit Jimmy's again, if passing thru Elgin.

Ate here on a family vacation stop. Nice place lots of room. Service was good and food was quick. Meals were prepared nicely and to order. Wait staff had refills and dirty plates removed promptly. Nice spread of items to choose from. Also provided a 10% discount since we were staying at a nearby motel. Wasn't the best place I've... More

Great service, large portions, the best salad dressing I have ever tried! Always nice to stop at the bar to have a Casamigos Tequila with their friendly bartenders. It is my go to place when I want good food and friendly service.

Everything used to be overly drenched in garlic but there are a few good things on the menu. The chicken sandwiches are delicious. The salads are good. Beyond lunch on the patio, this misses the mark.

We met friends in the bar for cocktails. Service was very good. For dinner, the service was excellent. I had the single filet that was cooked perfectly to order and was quite tasty. the loaded potato was also quite good. My husband had the New York strip with horseradish crust that was cooked to order and delicious. The others in... More

We went to Jimmy's on a Saturday around 4 pm. It wasn't busy at all. I had just graduated from college and wore my cap and hood into the restaurant just for fun. No one on th staff asked me about my attire which struck me as odd from a customer relations standpoint. The food was pretty good. The server... More

We had guests in from out of town and we wanted to take them some place where the atmosphere is inviting and with a variety of selections on the menu, and our conclusion was "Jimmy's"! Our experience was again excellent, the staff friendly, and the food and presentation met our expectations. We will be back!
