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.

We always have a good time at Jimmy's. They have a lot of tasty choices on the menu and they're reasonably priced. It gets a bit loud at peak times but that attests to the popularity of the place.

A Sunday meal in a not crowded restaurant. The staff was courteous and friendly. The selections sounded good. But the food was poor. The baked potato appeared to be warmed over from the night before. Steaks asked for medium were cooked well. The sides requested were not presented with the meal, and in the two meals ordered, none of the... More

The food is good- I had a delicious chicken w/artichoke dish, and my husband had a really good burger. We went with friends- they each had a steak dish. While the food is good, and service was good, it is pricey. Do I think the food was worth the price? Not quite. We went for a friend's birthday, and the... More

Have been here several times. Atmosphere, food, and service are good. Nothing special, just good. It's consistent and decent, but nothing exceptional. They make you spend as much time as possible in the bar on weekends. Seem to be getting as much $ out of you as they can. Not fun if you're with non-drinkers.

We returned to Jimmy's Charhouse again on Saturday night because in the past they had a good reputation; although an experience a few months ago was disappointing. 1. Seating - We made a reservation 2 weeks early for 5pm Saturday and requested a more quiet corner or outside. RESULT: They sat us in the middle of the large dining room.... More

We have been coming to Jimmy's for several years and have always enjoyed it. However this last visit was less than stellar. The good: they offer a 10% discount if you are staying at the hotel next door, the drinks are OK, and the restaurant has a really cool look. The not-so-good: The salads! We used to love them but...

I have had the opportunity to eat here several time in various time frames that they are open and in various settings… solo, for a nice dinner out with someone special or as a group gathering of friends and it has always been a terrific meal experience and value!!! The staff is very well versed on all the menu items... More

My husband and I went to Jimmy's Charhouse with another couple and we all had good meals and a good time. My dish was the broiled lamb chops and broiled pork chop alforno. Along with it I had a delicious salad and rice pilaf. These chops were the best i had in years. I rarely order pork or lamb in... More
