“Cafeteria food is putting it nicely.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

We visited Jimmy Belle's at the recommendation of a friend. We were completely underwhelmed and unimpressed. Nothing had any flavor! The garlic/cheese grits had an odd flavor I couldn't place (and I'd consider myself a grits expert). The mahi tacos were very plain & no sauce to liven things up. Hush puppies (krunk puppies) were very mediocre. Lobster croquettes were perfectly bland. The snow crab & collard greens were average at best. We won't go back. The only silver lining was the service. It was better than average.
