I've had several meals at Jimmy Mac's. The beer is cold and the burgers are great. Friendly staff, fair prices.

“Enjoyed It”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We ordered a steak and burger and enjoyed it. There are not a lot of good restaurant choices in Bryson City but this one had good food and a nice atmosphere. I also recommend the "Cork and Bean" for excellent breakfast, lunch and early evening dinner cuisines.

“Seafood is Excellent”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

My mother took me to this place because she feels it has some of the best catfish she has ever eaten. Well she wasn't wrong. I got the Captain's plate because it had the catfish as well as shrimp and fresh Florida grouper. All of it was excellent. The catfish and shrimp appeared to be deep fried but they were not oily and the taste of the seafood was fresh and vibrant. The grouper appeared to be pan fried and was even better. I had no trouble believing that it was fresh form the Atlantic.
The service was excellent. When my brother wanted to make a special order a man, apparently Jimmy himself, came out and told the waitress that he would sell his customers anything he had, in any combination they wanted.
The wine list was short but good and we had an organic white to go with our fish.
We had a great time and will definitely go back.

“Horrible”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Horrible service, the owner's son/ owner does not know how to treat guests, and should be checked for health violations.

“Great little restaurant!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

My family enjoyed Jimmy Mac's thoroughly! We went after riding The Polar Express. We had no wait to be seated at 6:30 on Saturday night. Of course we went immediately after getting off the train. The atmosphere and decor were so fun!
My surf and turf was outstanding! The filet could have been cut up with a spoon it was so tender! The fried shrimp were delicious! Really one of the better meals I have had!
My daughter had the pasta and loved it. The potato skins and sweet potato fries were REALLY good! Did I mention that the surf and turf had several options and many were under $20.00?!?!

The portions were good and the service was good. I would definitely return and highly recommends this place to anyone visiting Bryson City!
