Some time back I got a Groupon for this place because we heard it had tasty food and had a good atmosphere. When I go to a restaurant, I am looking for great food for a great price. My mentality is, "If I can make it better at home, why would I want to spend more money for something I... More

Was excited to try this restaurant before I went to work at closing night of the local theatre. When I called for a reservation, the gentleman assured me that eating alone would be more than fine, and that they would take good care of me. Unfortunately, I found that not to be the case.

Jimmy's is definitely in our rotation. I felt compelled to review this place as I couldn't believe it is not in the top 10! The food and atmosphere compete for what I like best about the place. If you haven't been here GO and you will be back.

The band was great if you like a jazz sound. The drinks were awesome. Great time there. The only thing I would complain about is parking. There isn't very much.

My wife and two kids were here for dinner a couple of months ago. The music was great and not too loud. The food was outstanding and the service was some of the best in the Burg. I would highly recommend Jimmy's on the James.

Jimmy's on the James is our favorite restaurant in Lynchburg. Jimmy makes you feel welcome at the door and entertains you with his piano playing and singing. The food is always delicious and the service impeccable.

My husband took me there for my birthday last year and after looking forward to it, I was disappointed. The food was delicious, however, the music was so loud we could not have a decent conversation and it was a bit pricey.
