I went to Jimmy's because it was across the street from my hotel and I was not disappointed. The pickle chips are to die for! They also have excellent burgers and daiquiris and I felt the prices were fair. Not only was the food good but the view was great and I loved that we got to sit outside on the pier. I would recommend this to anyone staying in Galveston and will definitely be back!

We had lunch at Jimmys on a Thursday afternoon in mid-October. We ordered grilled snapper fish tacos made with blackened seasoning. Tacos were amazing and the beer was ice cold. The service was definitely lacking considering there were only two other tables. The open air atmosphere over the gulf made the visit worthwhile.

The view is great but the food is VERY expensive. Two fish tacos with a small side of fries was $14.00 for lunch. Unfortunately the tacos were tasteless and not very full for the price. The fried fish was good but greasy and the three fried shrimp was lacking in quantity and taste. We wouldn't recommend eating here and won't be back. I would fish off the pier though...

The view was excellent, but between the average food and the seagulls attacking your plate, we wont return. We felt that the food was overpriced because it had no flavor. You had to be careful because the birds would try and take your food the moment you looked away. The wait time for just the drinks was about 20 minutes then finally we ordered and then the arrival of the food added another 40 minutes. The staff seemed interested and talking and texting and not concerned with the customers.

This was our last night in Galveston and a change of plans took us to Jimmy's. Change is good, no great. As it suggests, Jimmy's is on a pier which gives incredible views of the ocean, sky, ships on the horizon, and folks fishing from the pier. The views get increasingly better as dusk settles and night falls. Kristy, our waitperson, a.k.a. baker of their incredible deserts, was an awesome captain navigating us through their reinvented menu. The crab/jalepeno poppers popped! The fried red snapper fish tacos were excellent. The blackened crab-stuffed red snapper with dirty rice (special) was amazing! The oreo cake was delicious. This total experience absolutely put a cherry on top of of annual vacation to Galveston. Jimmy's is definitely on our To Do it again list!
