Outstanding Friday night fish fry amid St Patricks day fun! Wonderful service and attention to detail in a friendly pub atmosphere. Fish portions were huge and prepared to perfection. Prices very reasonable and served by attentive, friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. About as good as it gets-take it from this experienced Wisconsin tavern fish fry goer- Jimmy's does it right!

Amazing Buffalo NY favorite sandwich. Their horseradish is weak but if you double it makes it close to the Hungarian horseradish we had back in NY. Simply amazing. Cheer Jimmy's you did it right. I will be back any time I need a taste of home. Sarah at the bar made me feel like I was Norm from CHEERS, extremely... More

Was here the other night while in town for business. My friend was also playing the open mic the following night. We sat at the bar, everyone seemed to know each other and all were friendly. We ordered burgers and fries. I had the burger with bacon, chili, chedder, and LTO. The chili was pretty darn good and was not... More

I had the Prime Rib Sub special I don't know how often they serve this; but it's probably not often enough!!! Christi, our server, was amazing! Funny, attentive, and anyone that wears t-dye is alright with me!! And of course, we had wings to start! There is a reason they keep winning the "Best Wings" in NoVa!

Hard to believe you are In Herndon. Nothing like it in area - a real Northeast corner tavern with great people, food and drink. Very nice sandwich and bar menu, but my wife and I are particularly partial to the Friday Night Fish Fry. Best fried fish we have ever had anywhere! And you can get it with a side... More

Arrived at Jimmy's on a Friday night and the place was jamming. Met Jimmy and he made sure we were taken care of with drinks at the bar before our table was ready. He was very attentive to our needs. It was worth the wait and we had a wonderful time and loved the food.

I grew up in the Herndon area and everyone who is local goes to Jimmy's Old Town Tavern for a cold beer or after hours drink. It's quite a loud and colorful place that is fun for a friend's gathering spot but the food is very average. If you are looking for a place to sit and chat with friends... More

Great local pub in Historic Herndon. We usually go on a Friday for their fish fry. The staff is so friendly and the service is very good. Just an all around good atmosphere for a local pub :)

During the football season the place is packed either college or pros. You can't go bad by ordering their wings, best in town. Weekends there is a band performing. Now, as the weather heats-up the fun starts to happening outside during the summer, bands and special events. Pretty good prices and very cold beverages to enjoy.

We visited here with family who are from Buffalo and now live near Jimmy's. Very friendly place, with reasonably priced excellent food, especially if you like pierogis, kielbasa, beef on weck, and probably the best chicken wings in the area. This is where people in the area go to see Buffalo Bills and Sabres, so they better have great food!... More
