went here on a thursday night after spending the day in south beach after hearing positive reviews about this place on yelp. we ordered our food and seated ourselves shortly after. the place is kinda small inside (4-5 tables max) with another 3 tables outside. we ordered the daily specials (shrimp creole and day boat scallops with corn/potato hash). unfortunately, the kitchen lost our ticket and we ended up waiting an hour for our food. however, the server, jimmy, i assume the owner, apologized immediately and gave us a free dessert on the house.
back to the food. the shrimp creole was very tasty and came with plenty of sauce and rice. it was finger licking good. the day boat scallops were simply fantastic. the scallops were seasoned perfectly and very tender. the corn and potato hash was very filling.
from walking in the door, jimmy, the owner, was hard working and had a great, but small dedicated staff. he was taking to-go orders left and right and yet was still taking care of customers dining in.
also because of long wait, jimmy also gave us a $5 discount off the bill, which was very generous. i was happy just with the free dessert and ended tipping most of the discount back to him.
this place is a couple of blocks from lincoln pedestrian mall, but if you want true local food, goto jimmy'z kitchen.
