Four stars for nostalgia!

The fact that Jim's hasn't changed in years is one of the things that gives this restaurant its charm. Spaghetti is comfort food and the pie is fabulous if you get there before it runs out! Prices are unbelievably reasonable. It's right in downtown Huntington with on-street parking.

The pull of this place has nothing to do with the quality of the food, it is about nostalgia. Be sure to come with cash because they do not take card. Also, avoid the ravioli, as it comes from frozen.

The place has an old diner feel inside. Hundreds of famous people have eaten there and the walls are covered with photographs to prove it. The food I'd ok but I wouldn't say great and the portions aren't that large. It is definitely a historical landmark for huntington though.

Nothing exceptional except the fact that its been around since the 30's. Steak was bland and nothing special but then again it only cost $13. Very small waiting area and once it got crowded people were stranding right along our table. The spaghetti looked decent but nobody in our party tried it. The apple pie was very good and definitely... More

Very friendly and helpful. Quick service. Only problem with this restaurant is it is downtown Huntington, WV and you have to park on street. Otherwise, all was great with restaurant.

The traditions started when this restaurant began are carried on by the daughter of the founder. White uniforms, extreme courtesy, and great food. And don't miss the spaghetti, the recipe has never changed, and it is delicious. We have been visiting Huntington and eating at Jim's for over 50 years, it is the high point of our visits. If you...

First of all, warning - they DO NOT take credit cards. What kind of modern restaurant in the downtown area of a city doesn't take cards? Secondly, the food is beyond is bland. I can make better spaghetti. Finally, the service was very rude and did not offer me the first refill. Do not waste your time here.

Had a great time. We live nearby but seem to rarely make the trip to Jim's. We sat under a sign from the celebration of Jim's 50th Anniversary... from 1988. We were also across from the booth where JFK sat on his visit back when he was running for President. The fish was fantastic, and I got a side of... More

We hadn't visited Jim's for at least 20 years and really didn't know what to expect. We'd forgotten what was so good about the place, but the memory always held it in high regards. We arrived on a Tuesday evening, and it was packed. White-dressed waitresses zoomed around customers tables with a rhythm that only experience allowed. They looked like... More

since I eat here often, I should have reviewed Jim's long ago. unfortunately, I took it for granted. An institution in Huntington, not to be missed. Great spaghetti and sandwiches hot off the grill. Nothing fancy (and no alcohol served), but for a quick lunch or a relaxed dinner, you'll always have good food and service
