Great home cooked meal!!

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!😃

I have been eating at Jimmy's for about a year now. 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.

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!!

WOW! Scallops were succulent and well-prepared. Steak was cooked to order perfectly. You will NOT beat this deal @ $13.99 for steak, scallops, salad and potato. 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

A fun, cool atmosphere you can come to have a burger or just get a soda and sit at the bar, read the paper and just relax. The service is great my food was perfect and will be my place to eat from now on.
