Went to this restaurant because I was staying at the hotel right across the way and did not have a car. It was ok. Met a friend for dinner the first night and had steak, which was a little overdone. Also ordered take out chicken from here on the second night which was good.

My 88 year old Father in law wanted to go out for Thanksgiving, so we chose Jimmys because of our business meetings here and the great food we had. They stayed true to our reservation time, were very attentive and everything was fresh and portions generous for the 16.95 it cost, including dessert, salad, stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey with your...

We came on a quiet Sunday night. But they were open for another hour. It took a very long time, ten minutes, for the not overworked waitress to even ask if we wanted a drink. We ordered the Goat Cheese appetizer, a past favorite. While it was good, it seemed a bit skimpy on the cheese this time. The steak... More

I absolutely love Jimmy's for a wonderful, relaxing dinner. My family and I frequent this restaurant and always find the staff is most pleasant and accommodating, the food is always very good and the prices are very reasonable. They do not rush you along and are attentive without becoming annoying. They are happy to accept reservations and special requests (I... More

We came to eat for my husband's birthday. I've been a customer of Jimmy's for over 10 years. I have ordered the chicken brochette many times. Today the chicken wasn't cooked all the way, the veggies were too crunchy, I sent it back to be cooked more. They bring it back out the meat is cooked, but the veggies are... More

We found Jimmy's Charhouse after moving to this area. We love this place so much that we take my 88 yr. old mom once a month. Her favorite (and mine too) is the Lamp Chops. Their portions are so good that we can share this and Jimmy's Charehouse goes out of their way to split the dish and present it... More

everything we had was delicious. Our waiter was wonderful. We were visiting with friends we had not seen in a long time. He was very patient with taking our order because we were talking and did not decide for quite awhile what to order. He was very friendly and attentive enough, but did not bother us.

Decent food, not on the scale of some of the great Chicago steak houses, but nice. Saganaki was good. At lunch sometimes they feature Garbage Salad. I really enjoy it when it's available

Jimmy's was perfect for a quick and easy lunch. The fries are crisp and not too salty. The sliders are the best I have had recently

The French onion soup, wood roasted chicken with herbs and spices was very tasty. Service and recommendations were spot on. Atmosphere was quiet and relaxing.
