We always enjoy having lunch at Jimmy's Famous - especially now when we can eat outside with a view of the yachts at the marina.
We have enjoyed many different food choices at Jimmy's Famous but our new favorite is the Beyond Beef Burger. It...is amazing! We like to add the garlic fries! YUM!
We really enjoy the new outside seating overlooking the marina.
I hope they continue to have this outside seating even when the inside dining is offered again.
Today, our waiter was Austin and he was terrific! He just moved to San Diego from Boston and this was his first week at Jimmy's Famous. They are very lucky to have him!
Thank you for another enjoyable meal. We'll be back!More
I came here with a friend after a run on the coast and we both ordered burgers, except mine had beef and hers had plant products comprising the patty. We both really enjoyed the meal and I am a stickler for good burgers as I...grew up on a farm in the midwest. This may not have been the best burger I've ever had, but it was still good. Her plant-based burger was also really good. The waitress was really nice and appropriately attentive, plus the view of the harbor was magnificent. I would definitely come back to this restaurant.More
I’ve been to JFat’s many times, so this review is overdue. This is a great spot for brunch & lunch as it is situated at a marina, so you get beautiful views of the water and moored boats. There’s a large covered patio so you...can enjoy the sunshine or shade and still enjoy the breeze while dining.
This last visit we sat inside, on one of the high tops, by the entrance. We still had the wonderful views of the water and yachts, but it was a bit chilly out to be in the patio. Service from the hosts, servers and busers have always consistently been very good - and this time was just as expected.
My favorite item at JFat is their Albacore Yuzu Salad. The amount of seared albacore is quite generous and the fish is very fresh! This dish is a perfect balance of flavors, textures and is refreshing meal for a brunch or lunch. My other half usually always gets the Cowboy Burger, which is just delicious with their BBQ sauce. And we usually opt for the truffle fries with the burger. We usually also share an order of the perfectly fried Beer Battered Onion Rings. Hands down one of the best onion rings in San Diego!
If you’re a burgers and beer kinda person, they have a “Burger & Beer Monday” where you can get any burger + any draft for less than the price of a burger itself! If you haven’t had a chance to visit JFat, make sure to do so ASAP ‘cos you’re missing out!More
So, I was planning on stopping at another watering hole but they were too busy and no parking. Figured I would give Jimmy's a shot. Any water front spot with ample and free parking is a head scratcher. Anyway, stopped by. The place was nearly...empty during the busiest time of the day. I chose to sit at the bar with only one other person. I had to wait several minutes and then finally holler at the bar tender before I could get some service. So on to the food. Pretty good. I had the buttermilk fried chicken. Chicken was tender but not a lot of flavor, other than salty. Mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans were tasty. If I went again, I would probably go with table service.More
