Gentleman Jim's was recommended to us by the desk clerk at our motel. We were totally pleased with our visit. Jim's was clean and the food very tasty. The prices were good and no one skimped on the portion sizes. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We would definitely eat here again should we return to the area. Good job!

The menu is quite extensive with something for everyone. I had a fantastic pan fried haddock and the portion was large. The service was very good and friendly. We were visiting Summerside but definitely would go back if we lived in the area.

Ordered clam chowder and I think they were crab cakes for my husband and fish and chips for myself. It was take out. I put it in a thermal bag and we drove to the walkway across from Sunny's ice cream. The chowder was a congealed mess, looked like glue and my husband said it taste like it too. The... More

Had a great lunch with a big group and all meals were hot and on time! Chef salad was more than I could eat and took a lot home. Served with garlic toast and lots of hot coffee! Waitress was funny and polite and extremely efficient. Would recommend for a couple or crowd. The chowder is award winning. Drop in... More

I went here to satisfy my craving for a good steak and I was not disappointed. The steak was perfectly done and nicely seasoned. A very good choice for my dinner.

Service was brutal, food was just ok. We didn't want fast food and thought it would be local and great. Perhaps local, but not great. Slow and mediocre food.

This had been recommended to us by some locals as good basic food. The place is remininscent of an out-dated 80's pub with old dried flowers, a rather musty fell to the place. The service was okay. The menu basic but very outdated - lots of old fashioned meat dishes and very plain sandwiches.

The best thing on the menu is the seafood chowder which is made in the kitchen. The rest of the menu is average at best. Not a place for luscious fresh salads, more of a meat and potato place.

After walking out of another restaurant for poor service, we ended up here. It was one of our hotel managers recommendations. Definitely an old school, locals vibe. Our party has mussels, seafood casserole and prime rib steak. Mussels are a MUST - they we re a perfect garlic and wine classic. Casserole was New England/Island comfort food at its best.... More
