Nice atmosphere and service

My wife and I were passing thru Elgin and Jimmy's Charhouse looked fairly busy, so we stopped in for diner. We were seated and waited on in a very timely manner. We had the wood-roasted chicken, which was very good. I would visit Jimmy's again, if passing thru Elgin.

Ate here on a family vacation stop. Nice place lots of room. Service was good and food was quick. Meals were prepared nicely and to order. Wait staff had refills and dirty plates removed promptly. Nice spread of items to choose from. Also provided a 10% discount since we were staying at a nearby motel. Wasn't the best place I've... More

Great service, large portions, the best salad dressing I have ever tried! Always nice to stop at the bar to have a Casamigos Tequila with their friendly bartenders. It is my go to place when I want good food and friendly service.

Everything used to be overly drenched in garlic but there are a few good things on the menu. The chicken sandwiches are delicious. The salads are good. Beyond lunch on the patio, this misses the mark.

We met friends in the bar for cocktails. Service was very good. For dinner, the service was excellent. I had the single filet that was cooked perfectly to order and was quite tasty. the loaded potato was also quite good. My husband had the New York strip with horseradish crust that was cooked to order and delicious. The others in... More

We went to Jimmy's on a Saturday around 4 pm. It wasn't busy at all. I had just graduated from college and wore my cap and hood into the restaurant just for fun. No one on th staff asked me about my attire which struck me as odd from a customer relations standpoint. The food was pretty good. The server... 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!

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 decorated nicely and there is a separate... More

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
