This is a very nice local establishment in West Haven, CT. It overlooks the Long Island Sound. The food here is good, the staff is friendly, and the portions are pretty big! They are also open pretty late- we went around 9pm.

Jimmies continues to be a reliable source of nostalgia for those who remember the “Old days” old Savin Rock when Jimmies wasn’t much more than a glorified Hot Dog and fried seafood stand. The current menu continues the same theme with an indoor setting that...More
