Food tremendous. Best tasting cole slaw - must be adding some subtle spice mixture. Salmon cakes great, Wife said best chicken she had had in quite a while. And this was on a Monday, a down day for most restaurants! Atmosphere cozy but not cramped. They also have a bar and outdoor screened patio. Feels right, if you know what... More

Jim Shaws is the place to go to get good basic seafood. You can get it broiled,blackened or fried. The food is always fresh and the salads and sides are good also. This is the kind of place you look for at the beach!!

Not a very big place but the food is exceptional. Grilled shrimp, spinach salad with house dressing and battered French fries are my favorite meal there. But I'm happy with anything I order because it's ALWAYS good and the service is great.

For a couple celebration we decided to go to Jim Shaw's. Since it is not in the town in which we live and is only opened in the evenings, we had not been there in quite some time. The food was even better than we remembered it. For appetizers, we had the pimiento cheese fritters. They were unique, and we... More

Enjoyed the grilled shrimp and the salmon cake. Would have enjoyed the cocktail sauce more if it had a little more horseradish. The mustard sauce for the salmon was very good. Should have chosen the cheese grits over the sweet potato fries.

Fresh seafood cooked to order. Always excellent. I've had seafood as good but never better, and we eat a lot of seafood. Crab soup is heavenly-a must try when you visit. It is creamy and has crabmeat in every spoonful. Jim Shaws is locally owned and offers a wide selection of fresh fish and fixings. Our favorite restaurant in Macon!

I had the Grouper Blackened and it was very good. Butter Beans, Squash and Zucchini one beer and it was $36 with tip. Portion sizes were fair. I live in Florida. I could the same meal for less than $20 there so I may be jaded.
