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.

We eat here on a monthly basis and are always satisfied! The staff is always very friendly. Special attention to my grandchildren is important!

I go to Jimmy's roughly twice a month on average. Jimmy's has a nice variety to their menu. Recently they've updated their menu and I'm very pleased with the changes. There are a few items on the menu I've regretted ordering, but for the most part, I tend to leave Jimmy's happy. Their pricing is reasonable for the amount of... More

My daughter and I had a great experience at Jimmy's. The place was not crowded and the servers were spot on. Our food was very good. We will return soon.

The restaurant was big and inviting. The staff was friendly and helpful on picking something good for lunch. The charbroiled... More

The food is excellent and the portions are generous. The service is very good. It's located right off the tollway and there is a hotel right next door.

My husband and I use this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. Its a nice restaurant, but a bit pricey. It's your typical steak house. It's off a main road, but set back enough that it's not real close to other things. The menu is nice, food is good. Due to prices we don't go very often.
