“Outstanding Seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Outstanding venue for fresh seafood including oysters, shrimp and crab. A group of six guys were exploring a restaurant in the Lakeland area as we were rained out of our golf for the day. We found Jimmy Belle's. Cold Beer, fresh steamed shrimp, oysters on the half-shell and fried oysters topped the menu of finger food. We also tossed in some grouper bites and Jimmy Belle's version of hush-puppies. Everything was outstanding and fairly priced. Plenty of room - plenty of televisions for sporting fans and the overhead hanging alligator added to the ambiance. We would go back in an instant!

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

What they got going for them is that everything is super fresh. Portions were appropriate for the price and the beer selection is killer. The downfall is the service is super slow ( but once we had our order taken the food did come quickly) and all though the fish was cooked perfectly, we all thought the dishes were a bit bland. Maybe it was an off day. Probably worth a second visit to try out lunch.

“Great fish place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We loved it. We enjoyed it so much that we went a second time during our vacation. I was able to get stone crab, which was wonderful. Always busy.

“Really Fresh Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Had grilled snapper, was cooked perfect, not easy to do sometimes. Would like to see them improve the fries. Service was excellent. Like seeing the fresh fish on ice on display.

“Just what Lakeland Needed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

This place was great. Fresh oysters and great seafood all around. Plenty of selection of beers. Great music. Don't dress up to come here, just come hungry and with good company like we did. Thanks, Jimmy Belle, for opening this up in your hometown.
