Although this was my first visit, my mom had visited with her friends several times previously and suggested that we go. Jimmy's is not very large and it sits in a strip center. The dining area is very "sunny". You'll know when you walk in the dining area. We barely got a table around 8 am and it wasn't long... More

I have been here once a year for 3 years and it has been better each time. There is nothing fancy about it. Diner style with mounds of potatoes and pork on the griddle. Chipped beef was better than Generals. Prices were decent as beach food goes.

Awesome food- cooked the old fashion way. The staff is awesome- don't expect fancy expect good. They are famous for their cream chip beef but we just go for regular breakfast.

Really good pancakes, french toast (with powdered sugar, of course), and omelettes. Quick, courteous, economical. Been there several times each summer and will be back next year.

We visited Jimmys on advice of a friend. We were not disappointed. You get a huge plate of chipped beef gravy on biscuit or hot cakes. The rest of the plate was covered with nicely browned hash browns. My wife doesn't usually eat eggs for breakfast, but liked the combo with bacon cooked just right. Good place to stop by... More

Magazine clippings on the wall indicate the actual name of this breakfast restaurant (in a strip mall) is something like Jimmy's Creamed Chip Beef Kitchen. I got this on a cheese omelet which was very good; the SOS is reminiscent of clam chowder with chipped beef. Grits were northern-ish grits in that a bowl of grits is flat on the... More

It was Mrs Js day and since a waitress at another place had recommended this place for their SOS we went here. Usually Mrs J is strait forward water but as soon as she bit into the chipped beef, she changed. She told me this reminded her of her mothers cooking when she was a little girl so that's saying...

Food was quick to table .. Waitress had an attitude. Husband really didn't like cream chip beef ... My egg white Omlete was not cooked all the way .. Pancakes super thin. Coffee was great though... It was $65 for breakfast for 3 adults and 2 children ... Won't visit again... After waiting for table 45 mins
