I had heard they have a rib special, but forgot what day it was. Their website does not list any specials, but we actually guessed correctly this time. Wednesday night is a full slab rib special. Ribs were very good, served with either mashed potatoes or fries. We opted for the addition of a chopped wedge salad to split before... More

The service was questionable at best. Overpriced food far from the center of town. We ordered dinner on a Friday night and the place was no where close to full! On a FRIDAY night! Our orders were wrong as the waitress was busy paying attention to someone else! Way too pricey for that type of service. This really explains why... More

Stopped here for lunch. Never had been here before. Decent menu that included fish tacos, which were very good. Usually you can not fond a decent fish taco in Michigan. Hubby had Italian beef sandwich. Onion petals with sauce were good. Fries are thin cut which I don't prefer, however these tasted substantial. Mixed drink was weak. They do offer... More

While the manager did everything he could to acknowledge our disappointment it was not enough. All of the staff were "beginners" and there was a lot of confusion coming out of the kitchen, My grilled ham and cheese was grilled just enough to make the bread soggy. Sue's sauteed perch was fried and was fishy. The fried pickles were the... More

My family have stopped st Jimmy's the last four years after our annual visit to the Warren Dunes. Food and service were always good to great. Today's visit was absolutely horrific. My family (4 people) were one of three parties in the restaurant for dinner. There were at least four waitresses working, and apparently we drew the short straw. It... More

Avoid this place!! Our food was not edible. This comes from a loyal customer of many, many years. Obvious decline with new ownership which saddens us. We had always loved it in the past.

The food was terrible and we waited 45 minutes for it. The wine was spoiled, returned, replaced with bottled beer. The orders were mixed up but since we'd gotten different varieties of grilled chicken sandwiches we didn't know that til we tasted them. The bill came with the beer on special charged at full price, the spoiled and returned wine... More

Our visit was one of the worst restaurant experiences that I have had. We had a group of eight which I realize isn't the easiest. At the same time there were only two other patrons there. The menu was limited and in my mind kind of expensive. $5 beers, $12 burgers that were okay served with cheep french fries. Almost... More

Let me preface my review by saying this is not my first time here. With that being said, this is the last time I will be eating here. My daughter accidentally spilled her drink, however, instead of a waitress cleaning the mess I was handed paper towel to clean up. That is red flag number 1. Number two is my... More
