It is a diner type restaurant that has been a mainstay in Petersburg with the longtime residents. it is a place that has many regulars. breakfast is the best meal, then desserts. Nothing fancy about the menu selections, basically comfort type foods, which is fine. staff is very friendly... More

Jimmy's is a great restaurant for a "home cooked" meal. Really delicious food and great selection in a quaint atmosphere. Great service too! Highly recommend it!😃

Based on the reviews in Tripadvisor as being the number one restaurant in Petersburg, we had lunch today and was disappointed. The server was very pleasant and kept our drinks full. The menu had many sandwiches to choose from. We ordered the number one, famous Jimmy's Grill burger. The price was a good deal for a burger, tea and fries... More

Really enjoyed steak night last night!! Meal was a great value and was delicious! Service was good and fast! Will definitely be coming for steak night again! 13.99 gets you a steak and choice of fried scallops or oysters or spiced shrimp plus baked potatoe, salad, and bread. Cannot say enough good things!!

And the steak is between 8-10 oz. at least in size. Great atmosphere, great family, great food! Get there early, by 6:30 there was no place to park or sit!!!! Better yet, make a... More
