I went to Jim's with a friend who lives in the area - she's a regular, and it was a new place for me. We were seated right away and greeted by a very pleasant server. This was a Friday night meal after a long week at work - and it couldn't have been a better experience. We were not... More

Thank god for the original family who stepped away for a few years to take back the reins of this fantastic restaurant. They offer something for everyone..from pizza to finer dinners coming out of the kitchen. I love the pizza and without question...the Gyro's ( chicken and Lamb ) are amazing. Can't go wrong with full bar that is available... More

Thick. Juicy. Mmm! That's what I go there for. The pizza is alright but there is other pizza in town I like better. But the Ruben sandwich is to die for.

Been eating here for 30 years and just love the fact the original owners are back. Everything is fresh and perfectly seasoned! The people are great! Perfect for take out dinners. Very accommodating. Can't say enough great things! ( gotta get them on TV!!). Highly recommend!

This place delivers simply prepared but good food (heavy on Italian type offerings) with a giant smile and some the friendliest service I have ever encountered. Pizza is the crowd pleaser but other pasta dishes are fulfilling. The service alone will bring me back.

My wife and I went here for the first time and had a good experience (dinner). The pizza was very good. The service was prompt and efficient. The prices were reasonable. It is a basic family restaurant - clean and friendly but nothing much in the way of atmosphere.

Food was good as usual, but service was very slow. There weren't many people in the place and it still took absolutely forever to get a small pizza.

This is a decent clean, but dated, family restaurant that serves mainly Italian fare and Pizza. The food was tasty but generic, nothing special or out of the ordinary. We Both had Chicken Parmesan, mine a dinner, my wife a sub. The interior was clean but dated, and could use a remodel.

You can always count on friendly service and a good meal at Jim's. Pizza, salads, grinders, all good.
