I went here based on the reviews. While I wouldn't rate it as highly as most, I'd say this was a good average kind of place. I had the Pierogies and Kielbasa and I wasn't really impressed. I just didn't care for the lack of spice. I'd try something else next time. The atmosphere wasn't fancy, but that's okay. I... More

I really enjoyed our visit to Jimmy's Old Town Tavern (JOTT). The bartenders are great at their jobs, the atmosphere is casual and comfy. The food is delicious and all of the offerings are very reasonably priced. The only thing noticeably absent was a pool table. Overall, I highly recommend you try JOTT if you are in the Old Town...

Love this local bar/restaurant. It's our go to place when all we want is a beer, good food, and a relaxed environment. From the Tavern dog to their signature burger to the VERY authentic hot wings (they come mild, medium, hot, and insane), you'll leave with a full belly and happy you chose Jimmy's.

We never went in this place because it looked seedy. But we finally tried it today. The Philly cheesesteak is outstanding, better than any I have ever had, including in Philly itself. The French Dip (beef on a wreck) is also very good. They have genuine Guinness on draft! Be forewarned: if you order the Buffalo wings, ask for the... More

For years, I drove past Jimmy's and, from its exterior, judged it (unfairly as it turns out) to be kind of a dive. I finally set foot in the place because I wanted to play in the weekly Texas Hold 'Em tournaments held there every Sunday evening, and I was surprised to be greeted by the owner, who makes it...

Based on the reviews on TA, we tried dinner here. But we found this place to be extremely noisy, greasy food, poorly cooked, and most of the patrons were there to drink. The French fried potatoes and fried fish were soggy. The ice tea was instant. The grilled cheese sandwich had American cheese, not cheddar, with very dry bread and... More

The place was recommend by a friend, so I thought it'd be better. Ate here w/ 5 others night of April 26, 2014. Food was fine; service, not so much. Greeter kinda displayed a chip on his shoulder throughout our stay there. Was surly about how long we'd have to wait--15 mins. as it turned out--to be seated, and when... More
