Maybe it was just an "off" night. There is a good sized menu (although no kids menu) but we had a hard time finding something we wanted. We ended up with ribs, shrimp scampi, Dandy chicken (chicken pieces, pasta, vegetables), and a burger. I've never seen shrimp scampi come with cream of mushroom soup over it. And the Dandy chicken...

The signage isn't bright and fancy but OH BOY was this some good food. The Steak sandwich and burgers are DELICIOUS with reasonable prices and friendly staff. Go earlier though if with family, because some of the bar regulars can get a little loud. Haha.

I tried the fish fry twice. The first time, the fish was wonderful, moist and not greasy. The second time, I tried it, it was soaked with grease. I had to take off the crust and just eat the fish. What a disappointment.

OMgosh, the steak melts in your mouth and the ribs are devouring in themselves. You get plenty of side choices with your meal and if not feeling like a full meal, try their wraps. So filling and delicious!!! It also helps that you can eat at a booth or at the bar. They also have daily happy hour, and daily... More

Jim Dandy's is without doubt my favorite restaurant in Oak Creek. I've taken the wife out to eat many times on those special occasions and haven't been remotely dissatisfied even once. The specials are always incredible and the surf and turf along with the Saturday Prime Rib have been outstanding. Service has always been good and yes it isn't the... More

This was our 1st time going here. My husband enjoyed the NY Strip it was very tender and well seasoned, I had the Ship in garlic butter it too was very good. They also served homemade bread that was very good. The look was a little dated but the owner was very nice and friendly. It had very clean bathrooms

Prime rib dinners are equal to some of the best I get in this area. The price is way reasonable. The waitress informs you of coupon or price deals for "Earlly Bird" dining. This saves you a couple of bucks. Why not? I prefer the back room dining room. The br room TV's are annoying. But the back room is... More

Jim Dandy is okay if all the other places are full. Nothing special about the place. It's very out dated and old looking. They used to have live entertainment but they stopped that. They do have a nice place to go smoking out back.

Worst food I've had in a while. The saturday special was prime rib, but it was clearly friday night left overs warmed up. STAY AWAY
