4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

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.

Haven't been here in many years so we were very pleased to find it still serves excellent steaks. Our server was very attentive and accommodating. Will go back sooner this time.

We came to Jimmy's for late dinner after a movie on a Tuesday night. First impression was that the dining room was BEAUTIFUL! It added a lot to the meal to have such a well decorated place. Large and open yet our booth was quiet and romantic. The server was knowledgeable, polite and very professional. The food was delicious -... More

Food was tasty, service was quick and pleasant. Was perfect for a business lunch. Amount was perfect as well. Was thinking of getting a soup but the sandwich was just right.

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.
