I went here for a social meeting and was pleasantly surprised how tasty the food was. When you walk in the restaurant appears to be a bar and few seats only. When you go around the corner it is so much much bigger. Wait staff very nice and helpful. Great fish dishes and the bread - is WONDERFUL!!

Stopped here with my husband after spending the day hiking the trails of Sandy Hook. I has been a while since we visited and although we remembered it being pricey, it seemed to be even more expensive this visit.. My husband had the veal parm which was delicious and a very generous portion. I ordered the chicken with white wine... More

Best Italian in the area! Most Italian restaurants don't stand a chance next to Jimmy's. All the food is fresh and prepared to order. Family style salad and bread are served with entrees. The house dressing is incredible! Portions are enormous, so come hungry! Service is fantastic. Waitstaff is very attentive and will take special requests. Will go back again... More

We originally had a 6pm reservation. We called and were able to come in earlier. We had great appetizers. Family style salad was colorful and fresh. Delicious dinners and fantastic desserts. Our waiter was attentive and friendly.

As visitors from the UK, we visited Jimmy's with our American friends, and what a treat it was. The staff were so welcoming, and although our waiter was rushed off his feet, we received service with a smile (if a little 'broken' as he dashed from table to table trying to please everyone at the same time). The food was... More

Dined here with my wife and sister-in-law. I had the chicken, sausage combo, similar to Chicken Scarpiello but better. My wife enjoyed her lamb chops and sister-in-law had a delicious pasta dinner. We shared the cold antipasto and had some to take home. Lee our server was excellent.

Delicious hidden gem! I chose this place site unseen to gather the family and celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. I'm so glad I did. They were very friendly and accommodating from the reservations phone call to valet parking, to our dedicated server. Our dining area was ready and waiting for our party of 6. The menu was overflowing with delicious,... More

Cold gray April day...two retirees looking for a warm inviting lunch...Found...Jimmy's in Asbury Park! Been MANY years since we went to Jimmy's, but our thoughts of a nice red wine and some hot Italian comfort food brought us back. Asbury Park is very hip and happening right now, LOTS of great choices. Jimmy's ranks right up there in my book.... More

Pulling up to Jimmy's, we were greeted by our very friendly valet parker for the night. I forget his name, but it seemed as if even the people walking the streets were close with him. Always ready for conversation and extremely kind. The actual reception and dining area was behind the bar, strange. Not much of an issue, aside from... More
