This place usually offeres a fine lunch or dinner but this time disappointed due to quality of the steaks. Everything else was fine and service was excellent - that's why it got 3 "stars". There were 8 in our group and each of us that had steaks, whether NY strips or the T-bone were dissapointed as the steaks seemed to... More

Walking into this restaurant for the 1st time, I was reminded of an Old World town. There were amazing decorations. Our waiter was friendly & efficient. He recommended the "wood-fired chicken". My wife & I both had the chicken which was wonderful. It was moist & had a great flavor. We're sure we'll come back.

The food here is always good and reasonably priced for a great place to have dinner. We took guests from out of town to dinner here and they really enjoyed it.

We came to this place with a party of 10 people. The staff were very accommodating to the large group and were very prompt in bringing out everybody's order at the same time. The food was excellent! Don't let the fact that this place is part of a strip mall discourage you. We (unintentionally) stayed past closing time and staff... More

We enjoyed Jimmy's immensely. The food was good and the service was outstanding. I rarely tip above 20%, but this time made an exception. Only improvement I would suggest is a better looking cut of beef for the filet mignon. Tasted good, but looked like the bottom of the barrel.

Haven't been here in many years so we were very pleased to find it still serves excellent steaks. Our server was very attentive and accommodating. Will go back sooner this time.

We came to Jimmy's for late dinner after a movie on a Tuesday night. First impression was that the dining room was BEAUTIFUL! It added a lot to the meal to have such a well decorated place. Large and open yet our booth was quiet and romantic. The server was knowledgeable, polite and very professional. The food was delicious -... More

Food was tasty, service was quick and pleasant. Was perfect for a business lunch. Amount was perfect as well. Was thinking of getting a soup but the sandwich was just right.

We have been going to Jimmy's for quite a few years. We were introduced by friends who knew the owner.There is lots on the menu to chose from, something to fit all taste buds. It is a good idea to make a reservation. I don't think you will be disappointed with the menu or the service.
