I've visited in the summer and never cared about the wait because it was worth it but this spring visit left a lot to be desired. 25 minute wait for a table, 10 additional for a waitress then at least 15 between every request. Out waitress kept bringing butter to our table and forgetting the bread. Three bowls to be... More

I grew up in the New Haven, West Haven area. As a teenager I ate at Jimmies "Drive in" more times than I can count (shows my age). There was a certain ambiance to eating such yummy food in a car. Clams were awesome, back then I even at the stomachs, french fries awesome and well if a hot dog... More

Also had a salad drenched in dressing... Mom had their version of fish and chips. The fish was what looked like frozen strips of fish and soggy fries. Won't... More

There's a reason Jimmies is an institution on the shoreline in West Haven - excellent seafood. I thoroughly enjoyed my fried clam strips, which were offered in a luncheon portion size. The baked potato on the side was fine, and the cole slaw was crisp and fresh with just the perfect amount of mayo/vinegar dressing. My server was friendly, attentive... More

We like eating seating by the window looking at the beach. They have a variety of food with fried platters of seafood, baked chicken, chicken parmigiana, steaks, etc. We enjoy our food every time we go.

I have been here when I was younger for a birthday party. That was then and this is now. What a difference and not a good one. Long waits for tables, unfriendly staff, watered down drinks, greasy food and very expensive bill. I'm glad I wasn't paying. Nice view and walk along the beach after. Only good thing to say... More

Love the place near the ocean. Their service is excellent. Choosing what to eat is so difficult since the menu is full of delicious choices. You must visit you won't regret it. I found the prices to be fare.

Diner food is better not worth the cost. Your paying for the view. Use the parking lot and take a walk on the boardwalk instead. Truly don't know how they stay open.

My family just finished spending over $140. The food was horrible. The fry for overcooked and greezy but worst of all the fish, shrimp and scallops not good at all. No one out of my five-member family enjoyed the food and the food we brought home we threw in the garbage. Two whole plates in the garbage. Jimmy has a... More
