The food is always good and the service as well, never had a problem there. Only had to wait 10 minutes which is not bad there.

I enjoy the food, but if you are a true gourmand, this is not your place. many of the diners are elderly on a budget, but that means they recognize good value when they see it. The waitresses have been there forever and recognize the regulars. I've been eating there for the past ten years with my two children. My... More

now that's not such a terrible thing, but the average age of the customers of this restaurant, long, but no longer, just about the only place in arlington with a full liquor license, is about 70. so it's not hip or particularly fun, nor is it very good. the steaks are just ok. it's very popular and often quite full,...

This place reminds me of all the old steakhouse places that used to be everywhere. It's a very comfortable old steak house. The waitstaff have been there forever and can explain the menu in detail. The food was excellent!

We go to Jimmy's since years because of their very good food to reasonable prices, especially at lunchtime. Be aware: They have a new policy: show you ID when you are 30 and younger and want a glass of wine. Now, we well more than double that age - with white hair - were asked by a young waitress to...

My husband and I always have Jimmy's on our restaurant list when visiting my mom in Massachusetts. This time we both had the lobster pie, which never disappoints. My mom ordered steak tips this time and loved it too. We were there for lunch and the portions are good size and the prices are great.

My handicapped friend and I had lunch at Jimmy's last week and they were very helpful. They have several handicapped parking spaces close to the entrance and it really matters to folks that have difficulty walking. They do not have an automatic door opener but a staff person came and opened the door for her both on arrival and when... More

Good service, good food, good atmosphere, good manager & good price at early bird lunch until 3:30. Try the steak tips or Prime Rib....really good. Under $12.00 What a bargain.

Every time I go to Boston I MUST go to this Restaurant. The variety of foods on the menu is remarkable, so are the prices. All entrees include a salad and a side dish(their baked potatoes are to die for. Good selection of wines at a modest price. Service impeccable.

We visited Jimmy's after our moms wake and service on Monday the 24th. It was about 8pm and there were a couple of parties in there. They sat us in the back of the restaurant and our server acted like we were keeping her there. Come to find out, she was there until closing! We felt rushed through the whole... More
