Food quality has definately changed at Jim's. We loved to order the clams and/or the fish and chips. Since it changed owners - I would not recommend you go there. The cooking oil needs to be changed - french fries were not good. They also use Turkey in place of chicken for their hot "chicken" sandwiches and sliced "chicken" sandwiches.... More

The boys were out Saturday night for my brothers birthday. We had chicken wings and clams for an appetizer. I had the chicken skewer plate with roasted potatoes, a big piece of mussaka and a separate greek salad. It was very tasty and good price. The rest had seafood platter, club house and same as me. They all liked it... More

We had a family gathering and decided to pick a family restaurant for breakfast. The reviews on this place were generally positive so we decided to give it a try. The menu had a good selection for breakfast. Some of us had the large breakfast which was as we expected. Nothing special about it. Some had the omelet which was... More

My husband and I go to Jim's often. He always orders the donair platter or clams when available.. Love their clams & chips; unfortunately, they are not available during the winter months. However, lots more to chose from. There is one particular waitress who is extremely friendly and attentive. Have never had a bad experience. Wish they had the roast... More

Went there for the first time for lunch. Hubby had fish and chips and i had chicken skewer and rice. Hubby said his fried were frozen and he had to take two bites of his fish to actually reach the fish because the batter was so thick. he also feels the oil used for the fish was probably old because...

Big portions, fresh good seafood and haddock grilled to perfection. Nothing fancy about the place, family run business with good food variety and very good location. Prices are tight. Lots of oil for the foodies. Get the Jumbo seafood platter and you have it all. Totally worth it!

Went to Jim's for weekend breakfast; the waiter was excellent, friendly, attentive and kind. The breakfast menu is extensive and a large section is dedicated to omelets. But someone should tell the chef that an omelet is made up of eggs that are served at least turned over. The western omelet was a seven inch fried egg mixture with onion... More

We had a great dinner & each person enjoyed their meals. The scallops & chips were fabulous ( the scallops were tender, moist & very tasty ). The clams & chips( seasoned) were delicious. The servings were generous and although we were full, we decided to share desserts. There were several to choose from but we had the brownie &... More

First time at Jim's . Nice diner style decor with great service. Had the Calamari and fries and my wife had the fish and chips. Both were great and reasonably priced. Our waitress was very attentive and professional. Would highly recommend. The fries , by the way, were the best I've ever had. They were crispy and not greasy. Will... More
