The full-house is testimony to how popular this event is each month. For guests who prefer just seafood, your platter can contain any combination of shrimp, scallops and oysters. We especially enjoy the fried... More

Jemmy's is a restaurant that is a favorite with the locals. When they want a good "home cooked" meal it's where they head. Excellent burgers and great salads. You won't leave hungry.

Took my lady on a Valentine weekend getaway and found this place on TripAdvisor. The food was excellent. We visited twice in 4 days. The service was great and everyone was friendly and courteous. We will be back again.

Based on the reviews in Tripadvisor as being the number one restaurant in Petersburg, we had lunch today and was disappointed. The server was very pleasant and kept our drinks full. The menu had many sandwiches to choose from. We ordered the number one, famous Jimmy's Grill burger. The price was a good deal for a burger, tea and fries... More
