“An interesting view of Huntington's history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

While the spaghetti is average, the pies at Jim's Steak & Spaghetti House are very good. On the wall inside of the restaurant are pictures of many notable folks who have visited Jim's over the years. It is worth a visit just to look through these pictures, which are quite interesting. Jim's has long been a local landmark in Huntington. Many locals frequent Jim's on a regular basis.

“Nostalgic Eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Very likely Jim's has been the same for 60 years, and it probably won't ever change. Spotless chrome, waitresses in starched white dresses, busboys in white pants. They have a menu, but just about everyone gets the spaghetti. It comes down to small, medium or large.

There can be a line, but it moves fast. When they have a certain kind of pie they put a sign up in the window. You can't go wrong.

“JIM'S”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

A good place for spaghetti, a lot of history and quaint experience. JFK ate here, as did several other known people - lots of great pics on the walls.

“Tradition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Jim's has been in Huntington longer than I have. It is a family tradition. They have great spaghetti, although not traditional Italian, but yummy none the less. Jim's serves delicious cheeseburgers that are made on grilled bread.

“Poor food in lackluster setting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

It's a plate of food that requires minimal digestion. Long lines for mediocrity. This is a blue hair restaurant for customers who don't know any better. Atmosphere is late 80s nursing home cafeteria.
