Good casual neighborhood restaurant

Great breakfast. Friendly staff makes you feel as though you're a friend rather then a customer. Nostalgia at it's best.

What a great little diner! Long term institution in Solon with a friendly staff and good reliable food. We have only been for breakfast but can only imagine that everything else is a positive reflection of their standards

Jim's never fails to deliver a quality breakfast very quickly. The old fashioned diner is a nice change from the chains out there. The space is a tad tight and some may say it's a bit pricey but I love going there for the food and people.

I had a good "Old Fashioned" diner breakfast that reminded me of a time long past. I sat at the counter and was amazed at how good the chef was......all arms in motion. I had the chopped steak with two eggs, an English muffin, and home fries. The service was good the food was good and the trip back in... More

We walked in and the atmosphere reminded us of the diners of our youth. The portions were appropriate and reasonably priced. We visited on a Saturday morning and the place was packed. Even with that the wait was not too long and our food came quickly and was cooked to order. Nothing appeared to be prepared ahead of time.

We ate breakfast on a Friday morning around 10 am, and they were still packed. We sat at the counter and tried to order our food with our drinks, but they do not do that. You have to wait to order your food until just before they are ready to make it. We were in a bit of rush, but... More

If you love watching a short order chef, and food from the 50' & 60's This is the place. There's nothing fance, and bring cash but you are in for a treat. Try the Herb Walker? for a great breakfast.

I have been going to Jim's Open Kitchen restaurant since 1979 and have eaten at many competitors Jim's has the best taste most consistent food with a very friendly atmosphere.
