A word from Jimmy's Famous Seafood
Since 1974, Jimmy's has exhibited a commitment to excellence in the restaurant industry second to none. Although made famous for our award-winning seafood and steamed hard-shell crabs, our menu also includes various tastes from all over the world, such as grilled lamb chops, a montrous, savory prime rib, and barbecued baby back ribs. We have two seating areas - a casual, fun lounge and a beautiful dining room which is divided for those seeking to crack open some hot steamed crabs and those seeking intimacy. Seafood is flown in daily to ensure unrivaled freshness and to allow for new specials every evening! Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Very good experience, great service, nice presentation of food, ample quality"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We were disappointed in the high prices of entrees with only having one side to choose from on the menu. There should have been two sides for what the restaurant charged. There was not much to select if you did not want a soda or alcoholic drink, no lemonade, only tea, some juices. Not many options for the under 21 crowd to drink. The food was good, but extremely overpriced for portions and again, only having the option of one side with an entree. Our server was very pleasant. We were also charged a 10.00 fee for bringing in a cake to celebrate a birthday. I even called the restaurant ahead of time to see if it was okay to bring in a cake and the hostess never said there would be a 10.00 charge. The waiter failed to mention it too."

  • "Food is great and properly cooked. Service needs a lot of improvement as it took 15 mins. Before someone came over to serve us. After ordering the wait is reasonable. The music is noisy and the lighting is horrible . This place is so dated in the 70's. Bathroom is dirty and smelly. By the way, an automatic 18% is added to your bill and it is not written upfront for you to read. Come here for good food but expect nothing else"

  • "One of the best steaks I have ever had. So tender I chewed it with my tongue. Cooked exactly how I ordered it medium well .a filet mignon under $20. The baked potato could have spent a lttle more time in the oven. I was surprised I had room for the main course after I ate so much delicious bread. making myself hungry writing this review just thinking about how good it was. I don't eat seafood but I will return for everything else they have . They should rename it jimmy's famous every thing you can shove in your mouth. My wife had the snow crab legs (the biggest snow crab legs I have ever seen looked like something off "Deadliest Catch" huge) and apparently delicious. We are both watch lots of cooking and restaurant shows. We love this place"

  • "I didn't love my crab cake but I love the other food there I've gotten in the past."

  • "It's a lively neighborhood entertainment entity which just happens to have great food and service . My first visit and it was what I was looking for, good service and food. My only concern was that gratuities were automatically taken on a party of three. Tips should be offered, not taken . I rather like being the judge of the service I receive (although my service was great ) , I don't like not deciding the tip ."

  • "The hostess was awesome that she talked with the manager to have the light little more bright for us deaf to talk by sign languages. we were appreciated with them."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Jimmy's is one of my favorite places on Earth! The service was great, the petite Filet Mignon was A-MA-ZING and they NEVER fail me!!! I will continue to go back whenever possible! Kudos to the staff at The Famous!!!"

  • "When we first arrived we were greeted by very friendly staff.We were told we could not be seated until our entire party arrived which was reasonable. When we sat down we were greeted by our waitress. This is the last time she was nice. No one in our party had ever been to this restaurant so we had questions. The waitress was nasty & gave very smart comments. When we were ready to place our order she told my daughter she couldn't order a Po Boy because it was a sandwich. My daughter was upset & the waitress stepped away. She came back and said now you can order a Po Boy it's not until after 4pm that you can't. So if you want a sandwich go before 4pm.The food was good not the best crab cake I have had. Only 2 separate checks table per table."

  • "Had a great time at Jimmy's Seafood. The food is amazing; we enjoyed the best crab cakes, crab balls, sushi, and stuffed mushrooms. For entrees, our table had crab cakes, the rockfish special and stuffed shrimp. All were amazing and cooked to perfection. If you want the best seafood in Maryland you have to check out Jimmy's."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was delicious and worthy of a second trip. However, I am not sure if they employ enough wait staff to meet the demands of the crowd. As everyone else has said before, service is extremely slow and leaves much to be desired. I got the impression that this restaurant is frequently understaffed. On my return trip, I will make it a point to say something to the manager before leaving. Nonetheless, the food (namely crab cakes) were great and plentiful."

  • "Our first visit to Jimmy's and it lived up to all we'd been told by other customers! The woodwork in the dining room is beautiful...and though it is dark inside, it is very nice decor. Menu is BIG....and though they didn't have standard "brunch" fare, we weren't looking for it anyway....as we were there for soup & sandwiches. Everything we ordered: greek salad--DELISH (a tad heavy on the dressing but so much feta that I didn't care), both cream of & maryland crab soups were great...lots of lumps in the maryland crab, crabcake sandwich (one of the best in town for sure!) and the softshell...this was my least favorite of the bunch but it was still good). Our server was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Jimmy's Famous Seafood lives up to its name. The crab cake that I ordered and the crab fluff that my sister-in-law ordered were both cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. We had a great dining experience and will return."

  • "The food was amazing and everyone left happy and satisfied. We will be back next month!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food is fantastic and offers a great variety. They have an awesome happy hour that includes these flavorful crush drinks, seafood appetizers, and burgers. They offer many nightly specials that will draw you in.. The restaurant has a bar area that plays great music, a fine dining area, and a area for eating crabs that is also suitable for big parties and children. The customer service started out a little shaky but was better after the manager stepped in. From tbe outside you would never guess that all of this was going on inside but you would definitely know that this is a place that is frequented by many due to the lack of places to park."

  • "i talked my hubby to going here because years ago, i went for an office party and food WAS great. this time, hubby's steak was burnt and his lobster was kinda hard. yes, we could've asked for replacement but - we all know some folks in the kitchen treat food badly when a customer complains. we dont want to risk it. i ordered red sangria and it arrived white. the waitress was nice but she was kinda hard to find and rather slow. i guess she has several tables. also, i saw the owner/manager walking around greeting customers. but he didnt stop at our table. i've seen him look a few times but he NEVER bothered to check on us. what, he picks and choose who to greet and be cordial to??? kinda disappointing. at least, my crabcake was good."

  • "My second trip to Jimmy's and I was just as pleased as I was on my first visit. The experience was great! Thanks again!"

  • "I had the sea scallops and they were absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had the Alfredo with the scallops and shrimp and crab and he loved it. Our waiter was fantastic. Loved the music they had playing. Would most definitely go again."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "The food was phenomenal but our waiter was absolutely horrible! I took my mom there for her first time and she definitely enjoyed the food but the waiter made her experience absolutely horrible! I have been to Jimmy's many of times and this was the worst experience I have ever had! So this was definitely a situational experience and the other wait staff seemed to be doing a great job and would recommend the restaurant for their outstanding food!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "food was great. the portion was good and well worth the price. Went for restaurant week and the 3 course special was definitely worth every penny. will be going back!"

  • "Being a ravens fanatic, I'm usually following the whereabouts of the favorite restaurants and places to be by where they usually are. Torrey Smith and Ray Rice are just a few names of players that are usuals. After bugging my boyfriend for months he finally took me there, let's just say it was worth the wait. Every piece of seafood was cooked or not cooked to perfection. Even something as simple as a hot potato was to die for. I will definitely be back, hopefully for the crabs the next time."

  • "Arrived at 5:45 for a 6:15 dinner during Restaraunt Week and it was very busy but recieved nice welcome and seated at the bar until our reservation time. Had an okay waiter that was fairly attentive but the meal was very good to include appetizers,Main Course and dessert. Would go there again !"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "My husband and I tried out this restaurant because of restaurant week. The food was SO delicious!! We will definitely be coming back in the future. The only thing we weren't crazy about was our waitress. The service wasn't horrible, but our waitress was just a little off. It wouldn't hinder us from coming to dinner here again though."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was outstanding and amazing. We had a 3 course dinner in exactly an hour. My husband had the rockfish and I had the penne pasta with shrimp and scallops. It was very busy on Sunday evening and very noisey, so if you want a quiet place for dinner this is not the place. This was our first visit and won't be our last. Well worth thr drive."

  • "This was a wonderful dining experience. My husband and I wanted to eat at a different restaurant and what better time to go than restaurant week. I am hard to please because it seems that wherever you go customers/ patrons are not appreciated anymore. This was not the case at Jimmy's Seafood. The food was excellent and the waiter Rodney was phenomenal. We will return again. I was very impressed. It was quite busy, the food came out in a timely fashion."

  • "This was my third visit to Jimmy's and I left full and happy! They have once again renovated the dining room and added some new items to the menu. I had the King's Combo for Restaurant Week - steak was perfectly cooked and the shrimp was heavenly. The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is a true gem!"
