My wife and I were in the mood for a good steak and a dinner without our darling 3 boys. My oldest son (15) agreed to watch the other two and we were off. Arrived at Jimmy's around 5:30. We were immediately seated and greeted by our server Jenny Lee. She was very personable and made great recommendations. We started... More

I was stuck in a hotel during a blizzard and walked over to this place. The traffic was steady all night so I figured it would be good. Who goes out in a blizzard to eat? Wow. Home made teramisu which was great. Big plates of food. Fresh hot bread. Wedge salad with blue cheese was yummy. Try their vinegerette.... More

Brought my family (8 adults, 2 children) to Jimmy's for a Christmas Eve dinner, had reservations for 7:00 PM. Table was ready but we were packed in the side room, no room between us and the table in the middle. Service was good but the food was not of the quality you would expect for the price. I doubt we...

A nice place close to I 90, you can always get in and the food is above average. Service can be spotty, but overall good, portions are on the large size; go there 3-4 times a year.

Our server was great and I go for the goat cheese appetizer. It continues to be a wonderfully rich, creamy tasty treat I look forward to every year. Truth is, we went to Jimmy's because it was close to the hotel and we were tired. The steak was just okay, not really tender, but done the way I asked. It... More

Went for dinner with friends based on their recommendations. My prime rib was the worst ever, my husbands rib eye was ok at best. I should have sent back but that gets me nervous. I called and spoke with manager and she didn't seem to care at all. Service was good but will not ever return there. Texas Roadhouse has... More

We stopped in one night. Large dining room, no wait. We tried the ribs and thought they were very good. They are not 'fall off the bone' that other places tout and we prefer ribs to be a little more chewy. Not difficult.. the meat came off but not fall off. They were every busy and the waiter was held... More
