Worth the Stop

Hamburgers and chicken sandwiches were delicious. Homemade broccoli soup was so good. Shrimp scampi, I would pass on. The service was good. Nothing to write home about, but plenty of tasty food.

We went to Bryson City to ride the Smokey Mountain Train. We had a great time and when we returned we were really hungry. Saw Jimmy Mac's and decided to give it a try. So glad we did! I had the Fresh River Trout and it was delicious. Great meal, must have been a three pounder. My daughter-in-law had the... More

Friendly staff. Check yelp-if you check in you get free dessert & it was delicious. Don't use a lot of seasoning. Shrimp scampi was shrimp stuck in scampi sauce not cooked in it. Was still good

I've been a customer of Jimmy Mac's since the mid-1970's (when it was in Tampa, FL). It was known then as the best hamburger in town, and has not changed. Even the ambiance. The owner has done a great job of keeping the same interior as the original restaurant on Westshore Blvd. Although famous for its hamburgers, it's a casual... More

So glad we dined here! Everyone in our party of five enjoyed our recent dinner. Our dinners were just excellent, and our server was very helpful and accommodating. I'm so glad we didn't miss this dining experience and would definitely eat there again.

I went to Jimmy Mac's with my girlfriend on Valentine's evening. They had a fantastic deal on a meal for two. The food was excellent, and the wait staff and owner were very efficient and cordial.

My family went there, we received terrible service from very unfriendly staff. We decided to leave, we tried to pay for the drinks we received, the manager stopped us, came out side and wrote down our license plate saying there were going to call the police on us. I went ahead and called the police, a police officer had to... More

My husband and I ate there last evening. They were out of the beer I ordered, then out of the sandwich my husband had chosen to order. The server should have at least mentioned what menu items were not available when she took our drink orders. My husband did enjoy his Minnesota Fats sandwich, but my chicken sandwich and sweet...
