2 stars for the overpriced food and drinks. 5 stars for our waiter and our view. That comes out to about 4 stars overall. The hostess took us to the exact table I hoped she would: a railside table with a beach view. You are not sitting on the beach but across the street from it, and you get to watch cars and pedestrians and dogs: in late February, these are mostly old folks like myself trying to cram all the fun in before the Spring Breakers come down and tear up anything and everything in sight and make everybody as miserable as they possibly can. Our waiter was incredibly attentive. He came up to us about every 2-3 minutes to make sure we needed anything and was eager to make conversation. I ordered a Bama Breeze, and he asked for me to take my ID out of my wallet and studied every single line very thoroughly. He put our food in our take-out boxes for us when most of the time waiters/waitresses dump the boxes on the table for us to do it ourselves. My mother absolutely adored him. Our food was bleh, sad to say. The Volcano Nachos are HUGE, to put it mildly. We had to get most of them to go and of course they are soggy by the time you get ready to eat them back at your hotel. But while they sat bigger than life on our table in the joint they tasted just fine, had everything on them. My mother got a chicken caesar salad and could not finish it and got it to go, and ended up throwing away what was in her take-out box.I got a Cheeseburger in Paradise and fries. The fries were fine. The burger was average. I got most of it to go and ended up throwing it away, too. The Bama Breeze, which is something like rum and orange juice and coconut, was not that good. We paid over $60 for two meals, nachos, and one alcoholic drink, and I thought that was really high. Even on Sanibel Island we didn't pay that much for meals. And this was lunch. I reckon we would give Jimmy's place a 2nd chance, but I would skip those nachos unless you make that your meal.
