The Vibe is Something Different...

I ended up here because of Lou & Harry's being closed... The set up in here is really different, but interesting. There is a mobster feel and when you see all of the paraphenalia in memory of the times, it somewhat solves the mystery. It has great space options depending on who you are dining... read more

We used to always go to Jimmy's when we couldn't decide where to go, when we needed comfort food. We have gone there for years. We ate there several times the past month.. Service was fine, but not great. The main issues was the food. We had the wet burritos on two occasions. Both times there was lettuce inside and... More

Food was pretty good, appetizers way overpriced. Service was poor! Waitress super sweet but slow! Food served with no silverware on table, ordered no lemon on salmon, got lemon Anyways. She did offer to make me new one but I declined as everyone else would be done before mine came out again. She did take off bill and gave us... More

James F, Owner at Jimmy's Pub, responded to this review

Thank you for the kind words on both the food and service. In response to your KKK reference, our chalkboard displays a Hamburger and French Fries in the bottom right corner. I believe your party of guests mistakenly took the drawing of the French Fries for something other than French Fries. We take great pride in our facility and continually... More

Jimmy's is a great place. From the minute walked in we felt like we belonged there. Jim the owner came over and asked how we were and thanked us for coming in. Good beer and great food. If you haven't been to Jimmy's you are missing out.

Jimmy's was a great place to meet and talk with students. Food was better than I expected and at an affordable price. I would definitely go back again when I'm in Lansing!

A while ago I started visiting Jimmie's pub when it was in a remodeled Bill Knapp's restaurant. It was warm and friendly and hard to beat for a relaxing pub atmosphere. The new pub is several years old by know but seems as warm and friendly as the old place. A little more upscale but still great food and atmosphere.... More

I went to Jimmy's with a group of six at about 8:00 PM. While everyone definitely enjoyed their meal (fish and chips, meat lover's pizza, hickory burger, and two wet burritos,) the waitress really brought the experience down. This restaurant was NOT crowded by any sense of the word, yet it took her a long time to just bring us... More

Stopped here with a friend for lunch after playing golf in the morning. Service was excellent. The Rueben sandwich was very good and was served with a choice of sides. I had the sweet potato fries. Wonderful!! You cannot miss by eating here.

We went there with your daughter's family and enjoyed effective, friendly service and large portion sizes, for which you should be prepared. One entry may be enough for two people. Everyone had a different meal and all said that theirs was great. It's a sports bar, but when we were there, it was easy to hear everyone at the table.... More
