A Nice Cheap Meal

The food at Jimmy Macs was very good. The prices were incredible compared to what we are used to paying for a steak dinner. The portions were very generous, and the staff was very friendly!

My husband and I dined at this restaurant on July 2nd upon a recommendation from the hotel staff and were they on point! The restaurant is on main street, neat place with a lot of old memorabilia items inside. We were seated immediately no wait time for us - larger groups were having to wait. The menu is so expansive... More

We had about a 20 minute wait for a table, but when we got it there was a long wait for the food, which was very good, went back a second time.

We were seated quickly and enjoyed friendly service from Katie. The food was good. We did wait a looooooong time after ordering for our food, although Katie was kind to bring the kid's the applesauce from their meals to eat while we waited. We were disappointed that they were out of elk as we'd read great reviews and we're looking... More

Our table all ordered burgers and they were delicious. Each ordered a different variety and they were all cooked differently and we were all very pleased with the outcome. Great place to eat in Bryson City!

This was a fantastic dinning experience for my group. They have a very extensive menu and a great small town atmosphere. I highly recommend the Buffalo or Elk burger.

We visited on a busy Sunday night so we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. The restaurant was very busy and popular with locals and for good reason. The food was very good and reasonably priced, but the building detracts from the overall enjoyment. The main dining room had cobwebs in the corners and needed a good... More

Really good meal tonight. Outstanding service from Katie. Fried grouper and my wife had the shrimp. House salad was good also. My picky son had the grilled cheese. Wait was only 10 minutes on a Saturday night. Came here 3 years ago and it was good then. Try the NC local beers.

When the wait for a table was going to be an hour,we knew this must be the place to eat. Put our name on the list and then walked to some of the nearby local shops while we waited. Wonderful menu selections. The food was very good and expertly prepared. The wait staff was very friendly. My husband still talks... More
