Looking for a place to eat in Cambridge, Maryland my wife and I happened upon Jimmie and Sooks in the downtown area. When we entered we seated ourselves in one of the side booths. Our waitress, Kelly, warmly greeted us and welcomed us to the restaurant immediately making us feel at home. We ordered Maryland crab soup, the oyster plate... More

For folks visiting and wanting to get a piece of "eastern shore" in Maryland, this is a good choice. It's right downtown, with nice waitstaff who work hard with customers to please. You can try seafood dishes, pub grub, and finner specialties. Try it and see for yourself. I am a local, and I meet friends there on Thursdays for... More

The quaint Town of Cambridge is worth the stroll. Visit the town, park and walk from shop to shop and enjoy the sights. Make sure to stop in and grab a bite at Jimmie & Sook's. They have a wide variety of seafood, prepared in many styles. Hard to pick just one thing. Enjoy!

We came to Cambridge for a weekend conference and stopped here Friday 10 Feb around 6 pm. No wait and pretty good service. We enjoyed the crab dip in a bread bowl, but would be better with bread on the side vice having to destroy the bowl and have the tasty dip pour out on the serving plate. I had... More

My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant lunch at Jimmie & Souk's. The food was promptly served and nicely prepared. We were particularly impressed with our server, Krista, who was most welcoming and provided an excellent review of the menu, a companion restaurant, and directions to places in town.

My lady friend and I were strolling on Race Street, and on a whim, we decided to go to Jimmie and Sook's for lunch. Of course, we anticipated the standard fare...hamburgers and French fries, crab cakes, etc. However, I took the time to read the menu, and found a crab omelette was offered. My lady friend tried the fish and... More

Thank you so much for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed yourself and want to apologize for the longer than usual wait.

Had dinner here with a bunch of friends recently. I had the second best fried oysters I've ever had, their beer selection was great, crab cakes, shrimp and even the cole slaw was fantastic. The shrimp were the moistest and most tender fried shrimp I have ever had.
