We had a good start to the evening. Immediate seating by the host and a very pleasant waitress quickly brought a good martini and very large vodka tonic. Nice dinner salads, one with creamy peppercorn dressing and the other with blue cheese. Things were downhill from there, with an overdone veal parmesan with meat sauce on linguini that tasted like...

This spot in Arlington, Ma, is great for families, the meals are plentiful and tasty. However the baked potato I got with my filet mignon had to be microwaved as it was tough and rubbery on one side. Apart from that, the experience was great. The kids menu is cheap and the portions are very huge.

What a deal! We were three people. Had 3 fried cod, cole slaw - one order with rice pilaf, the other two with mixed vegetables. 3 dinner salads w. Entree, rolls and butter, glasses of white wine: all for 57.68 Dollars +tip. The fish and everything else was just wonderful. We even took some home... You can't beat that.

I can't decide what's better--the food or service! This place is delightful. Comfortable and casual restaurant with enormous, delicious portions. I highly recommend it!

Looks expensive from the outside, don't let that fool you. They have a prime rib dinner for $11.00. And the rice pilaf is the best I have ever had! The wait staff is beyond awesome! Very nice ambiance. A very good place to eat, we eat there every time we go to the Boston area which is about every other... More

My husband and I have been dining at Jimmy's since it opened in the early 70's. The first real restaurant in Arlington. The food is consistently good with seafood, steak and Italian selections on the menu. The wait staff is always polite, solicitous and speedy. It is family- friendly. There is a great bar and booths on one side and... More

Larger inside than you'd think. It's noisy as other eaters have said. Their menu is offline because it had old prices. Yelp and others online still had them. Their prices are upper range for the quality in my opinion. My chicken parmigiana was crispy and nearly dry in places. The entree does not come with Pasta. Strangely disappointing and the... More

Had a family dinner here. They were very accommodating and gave us a nice round table to fit 6 ... servings are colossal. It is basic good food, steak, salmon, veal parmigiana ... no fusion cuisine or tiny servings. Good dessert tray. Friendly service.,

The food was wonderful and our server was attentive and helpful. The prices were extremely good. We would have loved to get dessert but we were too full!
