Best local pub in Herndon

Jimmy's is immediately warm and friendly as you walk in the door. The atmosphere is very lively and engaging. You must walk past the bar to get to the dining area. This local sports bar is seemingly always active, fun and loud. The dining area is a comfortable affair with tables and chairs to... read more

Had a nice visit with family. The grilled chicken sandwich was fabulous, but my friends said their burgers were ok. It is a bit noisy, but a fun place to be. Very friendly staff.

Great service, warm pub atmosphere & large portions of quality food. Located in the heart of historic old downtown Herndon, Virginia, Jimmy's is a great place to relax for lunch, dinner or after work. Near & just a short walk from the shops & the Herndon Town offices & the neat Herndon Fortnightly Library. On the corner & parking was... More

Pub fare very good with some alternate choices for healthier tastes such as a salmon sandwich. Service very good and efficient. Friendly locals. Tap selection small. Not the best sports bar but there are enough TVs. Good alternative to franchise.

I always order the Philly Cheesesteak. It's always excellent. My wife got the hot open faced roast beef. It was dry particularly because there was not enough gravy. The service itself was poor. We waited almost 30 minutes for the meal, and the place wasn't very crowded. Others also waited a long time. Our waitress disappeared for several minutes at... More

So glad we found Jimmy's on TripAdvisor. It was so of the most mouth watering fare I have ever eaten! Everything was freshly made! Waitstaff were so helpful and friendly! Jimmy himself made sure we were satisfied! If we are ever through this area again Jimmy's will be a must have meal!

Very Comfortable for for everyone the staff was friendly and fun to talk with. The food is off the chain everything we ate could not be better than what it was excellent! Great old style restaurant that could not have been any better.

A friend and I are visiting Chantilly and wanted a local, non chain place. Jimmy's fit the bill. A cool bar with good food and trivia to boot (Tuesday) Nachos and the Beef of Weck was good. Go and have fun

Here for a night waiting to fly out in the morning from Dulles Airport. Wanted to go into the city for dinner but the weather was awful. Food is good and the service is fast. Small bar with lots of character!

Jimmy is the friendliest guy in town. Cheers-like atmosphere. Live music on Weds and occasionally weekends. Few craft beers, a PBR is classy here. Good bar food, large portions. Always a good time here. Family friendly also in the lower section away from the bar. No smoking here.
