“Colorful waterfalls inside, sit at the bar for better service.”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Service was the best the first year they opened in 2006. They now expanded to have outdoor seating and additional room inside. Advise sitting at the bar--sometimes we wondered if the waitress forgot about us when sitting at a table. Good burgers, wings, and a variety of beers on tap. Had ribs twice before--both times they were over cooked and like beef jerky. So, don't order those. Have found the owner (Jim) to be somewhat abrupt/arrogant with his staff and there seems to be a higher than normal turnover rate with the servers. Unique atmosphere with the two waterfalls and shooting star ceiling, but not as fun as it used to be.

“Casual dining, cool atmosphere”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

I love Jimmy's for casual dining items like burgers/sandwiches, etc. We tried the higher end entrees a few times and were very disappointed. But the burgers and lunch type menu is fantastic! The drink menu is great also. Super cool bar area.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We come to Jimmys for a no-hassle, consistent menu.

At a recent stop, in which we were trying to get to a movie on time, we had trouble with inattentive service. We were the only customers when we went in, and the wait staff seemed to be more interested in chatting amongst themselves than they were in taking care of us.

We'll go back, I suppose, but not with as much enthusiasm as we once did.

Jimmy's has nightly specials at very reasonable prices. We were there on Wednesday for the Ribs, excellent. Note, they are closed on Tuesdays.

“Good Food”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Jimmy's is a great restaurant not in the heart of New Buffalo. Odd location but good food. I liked the gyro as well as other lunches that I have had ther. I recommend it for good sandwiches.
