I was staying next door at the Country Inn and Suites (you get a 10% discount) and came over because I was starving and tired of driving. Cool atmosphere and lots of energy. Waiter was nice and brought my wine and water quickly. Dinner salad was great. Ordered the pork chops.....it was between that and the Grecian chicken.....the chops were... More

Menu varied, tried the ribs, kind of dry for being a featured menu item. Server very pleasant & attentive. Open dining area means a noisy dining experience, hard to carry on a conversation with the people sitting across from you. Would like to think a restaurant serving a level of food a step above a pub style menu, would mean... More

When we ate there last night my husband and I both ordered dinners in which included salad or soup. We both chose the French onion soup with our meals. We received the bill and found out they charge each $3.00 for cheese on your french onion soup....what the hell don't they normally have melted cheeses on top of French onion... More

We were staying at the Country Inn & Suites with adjoining parking lots, so the long drive (walk) and worrying about a DD, just weren't issues!!! And beside that, the food was WONDERFUL! Portions good, salads perfect, and ribs and chicken never tasted so good!!!! Good service, good food, what more could you ask?

I was meeting a friend for dinner on Wednesday night. The restaurant was fairly busy, but there was no wait. I was there first, got the table, and the host promised to tell my friend that I was there. While I was waiting at the table, my friend was waiting in front of the hostesses desk, and was never told... More

This place usually offeres a fine lunch or dinner but this time disappointed due to quality of the steaks. Everything else was fine and service was excellent - that's why it got 3 "stars". There were 8 in our group and each of us that had steaks, whether NY strips or the T-bone were dissapointed as the steaks seemed to... More

Walking into this restaurant for the 1st time, I was reminded of an Old World town. There were amazing decorations. Our waiter was friendly & efficient. He recommended the "wood-fired chicken". My wife & I both had the chicken which was wonderful. It was moist & had a great flavor. We're sure we'll come back.

The food here is always good and reasonably priced for a great place to have dinner. We took guests from out of town to dinner here and they really enjoyed it.

We came to this place with a party of 10 people. The staff were very accommodating to the large group and were very prompt in bringing out everybody's order at the same time. The food was excellent! Don't let the fact that this place is part of a strip mall discourage you. We (unintentionally) stayed past closing time and staff... More

We enjoyed Jimmy's immensely. The food was good and the service was outstanding. I rarely tip above 20%, but this time made an exception. Only improvement I would suggest is a better looking cut of beef for the filet mignon. Tasted good, but looked like the bottom of the barrel.

Thank Albert M
