If you like 4 romaine butts in your Ceasar sald- Calamari not cleaned properly, terrible steaks, fatty lamb chops..then you might want to try Jimmys! Years ago it was a decent place. I can not say the chicken is not very good - wood roasted or Grecian because it is- The occasional Grecian whitefish on menu is good too. The... More

At Jimmy's always the best service and deliciously prepared foods. The steaks are prepared the way you want, and a good selections of fish also.

I have dined here a couple times while staying in the adjacent hotel. The menu has good variety and the prices are very reasonable. The food I received has always been prepared well and the service is very good.

You would think a place with "char" in its name would serve up smoked meats, not necessarily so, apparently. The chopped steak dinner I ordered served up a non-smoked meat-like dish that tasted more like soy burger meat than than chopped steak, and not even a good soy burger. My companion tried a cheeseburger and found it sour-tasting and hated... More

Disappointing, and especially for the price. Pretty place though and the service was great. French onion soup should be renamed 'onion water'; burger looks much better than it tastes, and soggy fries. So glad we didnt buy a steak, if they cant make a tasty burger, its not that hard. Good bread and butter. Appearances can be deceiving, and unfortunately... More

Friday night I went to dinner with a good friend, his wife and son. Jimmy's was pretty full but we had no problem getting served promptly. I will say the service was just fine but the food was junk. House salad - no problem. No apps, straight to the main courses. By the way cut the bread better. Even though... More

If you are looking for something a bit out of the norm , don't hesitate to try baked Grecian chicken which is moist and flavorful, comes with some terrific potatoes and service that will bring you back a second time to try the extensive menu.

Ate here for lunch, it's right off I-90 and Randall Rd. OK menu selection, my food was pretty good though nothing spectacular. Service was good too.
