Lunch chicken parm sandwich was not great. Asked for red peppers on the side so we could share (wife likes them, I do not). Open face sandwich delivered covered in peppers. Recorded message at the door over Italian music inviting us in should have been a clue to stay away.

We liked the view while having our lunch. The food potions were good but what you would expect in any pub style restaurant USA. Prices a little on the high side.

Jimmy's 21 claims to offer authentic Italian cuisine. Instead, it provides a ketchupy pile of noodles that are virtually tasteless. Service was mediocre, decor is ok, speed of delivery was reasonable, cost was more than the value of the meal, portion was large. Underwhelming in every sense.

We stopped by for a snack and wanted a place to hang out an look at the lake. The staff and service was very good. I had the chicken salad and my husband had the shrimp apps. Both were good!
