We have been going to Jimmy's for quite a few years. We were introduced by friends who knew the owner.There is lots on the menu to chose from, something to fit all taste buds. It is a good idea to make a reservation. I don't think you will be disappointed with the menu or the service.

Overall price of food was good. Service was very good and server was attentive but no overbearing. Quality of food was very good. We have eaten here before, and it was just as good this time around. We would definitely go back again.

We enjoy their food and takeout, but haven't been back, when they wouldn't accept a gift card, which had expired just a few days earlier. We did not go very often, but we have been perhaps a half dozen times a year, either dining there, or using take out.

Jimmy's Charhouse always delivers the best steaks, chicken, and ribs. The service is very good. The only complaint I have is that the tables are very close together and the sound is an issue; it's hard to hear your tablemates speak. However, we still go for the food and service.

Humongous portions, looks fantastic yet never lives up to expectations. Apps are good, service is good especially in the bar, burgers are good (more than enough to share) - just average.

Reading the reviews posted here we must have just hit them on a bad night OR maybe the meal we served was just OK like we thought. Its been many years since we have dined here and it was exactly as we had before JUST OK!! Seriously a disappointment as the parking lot was packed, but not to the point... More

French onion soup was really good. Chicken Alfredo was ok, needed more Alfredo sauce, was dry. South West Salad was good but nothing special. Need to stock Root Beer, either bottled or on gun. While I was there 2 other tables asked for it.

Big building just off Randall. Internal looks very up market the bar is tastefully decorated with murals on the walls in dark wood. Staff give a sense of you are being served and tastefully make conversation while service is given. Food is beautifully prepared and served. A patio area is good for summer drinking and eating. Prices are reasonably priced... More
