Decided to stop in after a day of hiking and site seeing. Diverse menu. Stuffed mushrooms appetizer was delicious. We both had a pasta dish. Hers was primavera with alfredo and I had the shrimp and scallops with red sauce. Both were good but we both thought the sauces were toward the bland side. In all fairness we make our... More

Buffalo burger and Elk burger were first rate. Attesting to the quality of the food was the 30+ minute air on a Thursday evening.

Our party of three ordered the buffalo burger, chicken club with all the... More

We've tried several times to get a seating at Jimmy Mac's but there's always a line with long waits involved. I've heard that the food is good however but with a limited amount of time, we basically have always decided to go elsewhere!

We visited late in the afternoon and it was not that busy. It took 30 minutes for a chicken club and chicken fingers. Chicken club tasted like the fish sandwich the people who ordered sitting behind us were eating. I would not visit this place again. The servers were friendly and prompt.

Long wait was worth it. Menu items from hamburgers to sea food. Not a lot of seating. Service was good.

Good food - long wait - service was average. It was a busy night. but things were overlooked. We were there, with 2 kids, for over 3 hours.

We are a family owned and operated all American steak and seafood restaurant that specializes in hand pattied beef, buffalo, and elk burgers, hand cut steaks, and fresh seafood. Since we opened in 1978 in Tampa Florida by my father, we have been believers in keeping things fresh, fairly priced, and family friendly.
