While the manager did everything he could to acknowledge our disappointment it was not enough. All of the staff were "beginners" and there was a lot of confusion coming out of the kitchen, My grilled ham and cheese was grilled just enough to make the bread soggy. Sue's sauteed perch was fried and was fishy. The fried pickles were the... More

My family have stopped st Jimmy's the last four years after our annual visit to the Warren Dunes. Food and service were always good to great. Today's visit was absolutely horrific. My family (4 people) were one of three parties in the restaurant for dinner. There were at least four waitresses working, and apparently we drew the short straw. It... More

Avoid this place!! Our food was not edible. This comes from a loyal customer of many, many years. Obvious decline with new ownership which saddens us. We had always loved it in the past.

The food was terrible and we waited 45 minutes for it. The wine was spoiled, returned, replaced with bottled beer. The orders were mixed up but since we'd gotten different varieties of grilled chicken sandwiches we didn't know that til we tasted them. The bill came with the beer on special charged at full price, the spoiled and returned wine... More

Our visit was one of the worst restaurant experiences that I have had. We had a group of eight which I realize isn't the easiest. At the same time there were only two other patrons there. The menu was limited and in my mind kind of expensive. $5 beers, $12 burgers that were okay served with cheep french fries. Almost... More

Let me preface my review by saying this is not my first time here. With that being said, this is the last time I will be eating here. My daughter accidentally spilled her drink, however, instead of a waitress cleaning the mess I was handed paper towel to clean up. That is red flag number 1. Number two is my... More

Don't come here if your not hungry. This place has it all. Many different kinds of food from multiple countries are featured every night. And lots of it. You can always expect multiple selections of meet and pasta. Think Golden Corral but very upscale and a lot better quality. Not a bad price either.

We were expecting a Bar & Grill, thinking Applebees or Chili's type place. Not so - this place is trying to be upscale. It's nicely decorated, but the food is just so so. We saw numerous tables sending plates back to the kitchen. Maybe it was just the cook that night? The menu is also pricey for what you get.... More

Stopped in to have a drink before we checked into our hotel. It was the closest place to get a drink by the Fairfield hotel. We did not eat anything so can't tell you about food. We were there at 2 pm and only people at bar.

Went to Jimmy's and had a nice dinner with my wife and sister. We all had fish tacos which we really liked. Had the calamari appetizer which we enjoyed as well. Should make that app a standard offering. Only thing that was missing is they did not have cucumber vodka for my sister's bloody mary. Besides that small disappointment, food,... More
