Jimmy Hays Steak House has been around for a long time and for a good reason. The steaks are soft as butter and the service is what you would expect from an upscale restaurant. The sides are average and the baked clam appetizer is better than most. The bacon appetizer is a bit sweet smothered in honey. On the whole... More

We had a great time at Jimmy Hays. The service was excellent, the wine list was solid and not horribly marked up. The menu was broad and so were the specials. The food was delicious too. Our only regret was not saving room for dessert.

We went for a celebratory dinner at 5:00...after we were seated, large tables were set up all around us..the atmosphere was loud and disruptive...we asked the Maitre D, Terry, if we could move to the back room (which was empty)...he said,...

Other reviews have said it. Food is excellent, selection is quite large. Everything, from appetizers to dessert is tops. However, while the greeter is warm and welcoming, I have found the wait staff to be "cool." Plan to spend a lot of time for your meal as it comes out slowly.Ambiance is nice. My excellent rating applies to the food... More

And steak is what you get. All the best cuts. Sides are bountiful and delicious. Great bar and fun lively atmosphere. All you could want for a south shore steak house.

Steaks are the number one draw and they are beyond compare. I had the Lobster Jimmy, which is a whole lobster which is actually "sautéed" in a pan with some sort of sherry I believe and other seasonings. It is delicious!!! and I highly recommend it. Also, the crab cake appetizer is excellent. Chateaubriand for two is outstanding but be... More

From the door you are welcomed with open arms. They do not take reservations less that 5 people, but they try to accommodate. The staff is wonderful, friendly and efficient. Needless to say the food is outstanding. We have never been disappointed.

Myself and three business associates dined here earlier this week. We had an excellent dinner. After salads which everyone enjoyed (my Caesar was excellent) we all had the porter house steak for two (Both steaks were done exactly as requested (exactly medium as requested.) and they were fabulous, we had potatoes au gratin which were really delicious as well as...

My husband and I have ate here quite a few times and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. The atmosphere is classy and romantic. The prices are high but they offer a bar menu with less expensive choices. We also had a company holiday party here and it was fantastic from start to finish.I suggest to... More
