We had hoped for better

We thought we would go here for a Mother's Day dinner on Saturday night, as we were not going to be with the family on Mother's Day. We actually had reservations for 6:30 p.m. and we were seated almost immediately, even though the restaurant and parking lot was quite crowded. The interior is... read 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!

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

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; Joe gave good recommendations. I was very pleased with my... 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
