Decided to give this place a try, many choices available along main street. We sat on the lower level closest to water and it was a beautiful spot. Our service was excellent and attentive. Pasta dish came with a side salad, house dressing (very good) and Italian bread, capellini a la vodka sauce with grilled chicken was delicious. The marinara... More

This place was OK. Nothing real special about the food and was not worth the money. The wine list is limited (at least by the glass). The drinks that my wife and I had were just OK also. If you can get a table with a lake view, that is very nice. But that's really it for me.

We were wondering around shopping and stopped here for dinner one night. I'm glad we did! The food and service was excellent. Our server was very nice and the food did not disappoint. I had a chicken and shripm with spinach dish which was delish! Try it, you won't be sorry.

We stopped in to Jimmy's 21 for a light meal in the early evening. We sat on the back deck upstairs which has a nice view of the lake. Although there was almost no one in the restaurant it took the waiter almost 15 minutes to take our order. We ordered a bottle of wine and after another 15 minutes... More

We started with drinks served by a friendly and accommodating bartender while waited for a table. Zaid, the host, found us the best table in the house over looking the lake.. We were served by an attractive knowledgeable waitress. I had a veil dish that was second to none. This is a small intimate restaurant that I know you will... More

The restaurant was dark & tired looking. It didn't look clean & was more of a bar atmosphere. We were seated on the upper floor with limited view of Mirror lake. My cutleries were missing & I had to ask the waitress a couple of times before I was given one. My husband & son ordered the NY steak while... More

We visited Jimmy's the first night of our 4 night visit to Lake Placid. The Italian food was absolutely superb. We had a table on the patio overlooking Mirror Lake. We liked it so much we ended up eating there all 4 nights. The food, atmosphere and service were unbeatable, so why take a chance elsewhere. They make the best... More

We were there for an August Monday Lunch. We waited a few minutes to have outside seating. The view is fantastic. I had a Reuben sandwich platter and it was very good. My wife and friends dining with us had pasta, Lasagna and Spaghetti Bolognese and they said that it was very good. Service was a little slow for lunch.... More
