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.

Stopped by this restaurant with grandparents on our way back from NVa. Great pick, good family spot with great food (we had burgers, fries). Hit at about noon and had to wait a while but food arrived quickly after we were seated.

I have eaten at Jimmy's on many occasions and each time it has been very good and satisfying. It is homestyle cooking executed well. Delicious! For me, I love to finish my meal with a great dessert and they have truely wonderful desserts. Because I love chocolate, I tried the chocolate ganache cake and it was to die for. Service... More
