As Good As Advertised

They claim to have very good cheeseburgers, and I agree! They are cooked to order, and the fries were very good. The beer selection was not the greatest, but the service was good. If you are in the mood for a burger, then look no further.

Stopped in for a burger and was pleased. The server was extremely helpful in making suggestions and was very nice. The burgers are awesome. I had a bison burger and my girlfriend had an elk burger. Both were great!!! Will come back to Jimmy Mac's!

Great food and great service live here locally and was very surprised , had the grouper sandwich and salad was spot on. Not quick but made to order. That's why the place stays so busy . Well worth the trip!

I loved the awesome food and atmosphere. Excellent menu! Great place to meet friends or take a family! I loved the Grilled Tilapia Sandwich...Huge fish sandwich. I truly recommend this restaurant in Bryson City...right in the middle of town by the Smoky Mountain Train Station!!

Great seafood, this was our second dinner over the weekend and it didn't disappoint! Our innkeeper Luke at the Calhoun House recommended his restaurant and we are glad we took him up in it!

We wanted to go to a local place while visiting Bryson City. We were told by our innkeeper to visit a more expensive place, but we thought we'd try Jimmy Mac's. Ok salads. Clam chowder was watery with little flavor and we had to send it back. I had the 6 oz. filet and it was tender, but little seasoning.... More

Looks are a little misleading, nothing fancy here but food was very good as was the service . We had steaks that were cooked to order, I had the Philly steak sandwhich, was very good and big to boot. Also someone in our party had the Grouper and it was good as well. Prices were reasonable, four ate for $65... More

This place is still popular with the locals based on conversations we overheard from surrounding tables. The menu is diverse and even offers buffalo and elk burgers. We can only personally confirm that the shrimp and the blackened mountain trout were delicious. Some locally crafted beers and other alcohol is available.
