This restaurant came with glowing reviews, but we were not that impressed. My salad which came with my meal had so much dressing I could barely eat it. I ordered the garlic oil sauce and instead of infused olive oil with garlic, it was about 20 cloves of garlic sliced and sautéed. I guess I am not use to that... More

We stopped in here for dinner while on vacation and out of all the places we ate, this was the only one we did not like at all. We ordered french onion soup for appetizers and the taste was odd enough to warrant not eating. Our son ordered the chicken tenders (fingers?) because the menu said 8 pieces of chicken... More

We went to Jimmy's because we were interested in Italian food. We decided to eat "family style" since we couldn't bring leftovers home. Another guest recommended the "Chicken Jimmy" which was delicious. Every dish was yummy and the ambiance was great too. Try to get a table on the deck overlooking Mirror Lake.

The ambiance indoors was lovely and romantic, however we were the only people in the restaurant for the entire duration of out meal. We had a nice view of the lake, but the windows were very dirty. Our food was decent, and the homemade bread and garlic dipping oil was a nice starter. However, our service was not the best,... More

We have been at Jimmy's before for dinners and this was the first time we wanted to try for lunch/snack.. We wanted to sit outside at their terrace on this gorgeous end of summer day.. The service was great, friendly and prompt without rushing us.. We ordered fried calamari.. Followed up with french onion soup.. The calamari was just ok..... More

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
