“Not in a hurry to go back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

This is a very hit and miss place with the food, but one thing that is very consistent is the lack of service. The meals were very quick to come out but they did get one of our food orders wrong. I think the main problem we had was that our drinks did not come out until after our meals where finished, even asking them 3 times to check on our drinks. I ended up walking over to the bar lady asking her where our drinks where? The lady looked a bit flustered and apologised as she only had just received our drinks order after being there for 30minutes. My poor daughter waited so patiently for over half an hour to receive her banana smoothie.
On a plus, the king of all burgers was decent and I really enjoyed my Casablanca chicken salad. Their tasting platter is huge and very filling, however the kid's nachos were not so popular and the garlic prawns tasteless.
If it wasn't for the coupons I would off given this place a miss.

“Very Average. Would not recommend and won't be going back.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Great view, sadly though will not ever be going back. It was unfortunately a waste of money- I'd really been looking forward to it!
Quick service which makes me think the burger patties weren't fresh.
The service was a little above average, the waitresses were pleasant but their attire was dreadful- Don't bend over! Their singlets and short shorts left little to the imagination, one girl looked like she was in pyjamas. I didn't pay to go to Hooters.
The cola was flat and lukewarm. It was a hot night and there is no air-conditioning which made things very uncomfortable.
The burgers- quite frankly, I've made better at home. The presentation left a lot to be desired. They were dripping with grease and smothered in sauce which left the bun soggy and falling apart. The chips were nice and seasoned well.
Would definitely not recommend.

“Fun place for a larger group.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

We had a great dinner at Jimmy Dean's. It's a very relaxed, casual diner-style restaurant with American/International food including quite good steaks, lovely salads and a very good selection of cocktails.

They were very busy the night that we were there and a bit understaffed, but the staff coped well and we had a great night. There wasn't an empty table the whole night (it was a Friday night).

If, like us, you're staying at Observation City Rendezvous hotel, Jimmy Deans is in the same block - a 30 send walk from the back entrance to the hotel. Good stumbling distance after a few cocktails.

The prices are fairly average for this type of meal, as are the drinks - although they do seem to have cocktail specials.

Worth a visit if you're staying nearby, and much better that the Thai place next door which we found to be very ordinary.
