“Waitresses cell phones use more time and attention than customers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Jimmy's food was very good as was the value. The hostess was very crabby and we almost didn't go in. The wait staff was running back to beverage station to check cell for messages actually had them plugged in and in a cupboard with dishes waiter snapping wet towels at girls Easy to fix. Takesa manager that cares
Busy and yet clearly over staffed
Meant to be used to improve. Thanks

“Great stop for breakfast in the airport.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Real eggs, fresh fruit instead of potatoes option. Friendly and efficient service . Good stop if you have time between flights.

“Best airport restaurant anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

As in all my reviews, I rate restaurants compared to the restaurants in the area. Jimmy's is (IMHO) the best restaurant in ANY airport (it is located in A concourse at Denver Internatioanl Airport). I have eaten there dozens of times and my wife and I have eaten there 7 times. Always great food, reasonable (airport) prices, good wine list that is very affordable. Their Italain street cart roast beef sandwich is as good or better than any in Chicago (hard to believe, but true). Jimmy's has dailey specials and one that has to be comparable to some of the finest restaurants is their halibut (only 2 days a week unfortunately). If you get a chance to try the halibut, you will be amazed! I had to tuna steaks (they serve 2 good size steaks) plus two great sides this past week and it was great. Great place for breakfast as well for those early flights.

“Convenient (not much else around of this quality) but surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Little else to compete with in Terminal 3 but we welcomed quality food and drink in the airport environment. After all we had much time on our hands with the cancellation of our flight DEN-ORD that day. AA came up trumps reorganising our return to the UK that day and overnight so we were probably in a good and receptive mood for the service we received. Amazing barman demonstrated his ability to do 3 or 4 things at once - quite disconcerting really as you could be forgiven thinking he was ignoring you whilst so accurately delivering your order almost without eye contact and certainly no concept of writing down any of the three orders he was working on at once! Recommended for you, but I hope not because your flight is cancelled!

“Great alternative to Pizza Hur”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Had a nice flatiron steak sandwich and a glass of wine while waiting for my flight to DFW. I managed to knock over my water glass while fumbling with my laptop bag. Three waitresses were all over it before the water flowed off the table. It was impressive. Surprisingly fast service for a place that is a cut above fast food,
