Located 1/2 mile north (toward New Buffalo) off of I94, and 1/2 mile south (away from the lake) from US12, Jimmy' is easy to find.
The wait staff was very attentive, but not overbearing. Empty plates were bussed within a minute, if they had a chance to leave our hands. The ever present and congenial owner, on a packed to the gills day, checked on us more than once, and even took our desert orders himself.
Appetizers include outstanding calamari, and a cup or bowl of good chili. Salads include a great chopped salad with about 1/4 cup of great blue cheese crumbled over it, and a pretty good Cesar salad.
During the salad course I was served the worst mixed drink I have ever been served, a rum sour.
Sandwiches include a classic burger ($7.00) with all the good stuff, and an OK Italian beef ($9.00). Entrees include a very good, and loaded, plate of Lake Michigan perch ($19), and a rack of ribs ($22.00 or half rack $12) that looked killer, but we already had our order.
The cheesecake, homemade every morning, is to die for.
