Don't go to Jimmy's unless you are willing to wait a while to get seated and you are really hungry. Maybe it is good to have to wait because it increases your hunger! There is so much food that it is ridiculous. We went on...More

The buffet is extensive and the service is friendly. If you like lobster look for coupons- different days have different lobster specials. One day, I believe Wednesday, they have 10 different crab legs on the buffet. As with any seafood buffet, they can get crowded.

This in my opinion was a slightly above average buffet. It’s around 36.00 for all you can it (I think that’s a bit high) but they did have a very wide variety of seafoods. Many local catches and many different things to try. Crab legs...More

It is a seafood buffet so I didn’t really see a menu but there were lots of options for kids on the buffet.

Usually the best times are before 5:30pm or after 7:30pm. The food stays plentiful until 10:30pm. The less busy days are Sundays Monday and Saturday. Call and get your name on the waitlist to cut down wait time
