So, let me start by saying that we haven't been to their restaurant yet, but we did enjoy a catered lunch by this restaurant. We love Italian food, so I was curious about the style and taste. I was blown away by their Baked Rigatoni! It was so yummy and that red sauce was so good, I was soaking up... More

The food is always excellent. Even if you ask for something that is not exactly on the menu they will prepare it your way.

My family and I have been dining at Jim's since I was a child. We love the spaghetti, chef salads, Italian hoagies and garlic bread! It is hard to say which is my favorite because I love them all. The spaghetti meatball sub is also amazing, especially when you get it on the garlic bread. Definitely a place to check... More

Friends of ours raved over the food at Jim's, so we finally decided to try it out. The interior design was kitschy and crowded. Don't expect to be seated at an individual table. But I could live with an old-fashioned, small style where servers had to squeeze past other customers if the food had been better. I read other reviews... More

House or Chef Salad with House Dressing can't be beat! Hoagies are excellent, too, either cold or baked. Spaghetti or rigatoni are also popular dishes for adults and there is a child's portion of spaghetti. Family operated restaurant, started by current owner's parents. His mother's "own" house dressing is fantastic and many locals stop by just for a salad. Highly... More

This place is located in a narrow alley, down a huge hill from the court house. If you're not looking for it, you won't stumble upon it. The seating is "cozy". The place is small and they are always packed. The food is excellent. I've had just about everything there but I have to say my favorite is the veal... More
