    I go to Jimmy's 4 - 5 times a year and it always delivers. Nice portions and nice prices. I really appreciate that they are one of the few restaurants that knows how to cook a burger the way you ask - rare, medium rare or medium always come as they have been ordered by people I dine with.

    We frequent Jimmy's a lot - whether for a special family birthday dinner, a night out, or for one of the best happy hours in town. They have some of the best wait staff around, and it's clear the people in the kitchen know what they are doing. Highly recommend.

    I have always enjoyed lunch with friends or for business at Jimmy's. It's a nice room, there's a wide variety of seating options, the service has always been good as has the food. This time, everything was good except my food. It wasn't BAD, it just wasn't good. But it happens. I'll go back and give them another try as this is the first time I've been disappointed in my food. We still had a nice business lunch overall and our service was top-notch. (And the price was very reasonable.)

    We always enjoy Jimmy's. However, like every other restaurant that could be enjoyable, the noise level is awful. There were 5 of us at a round table in the small room, and we could barely hear each other over the thumping base or whatever it is called. THIS IS NOT UPTOWN! Why can't we dine in piece! My husband remarked that it felt good to get out of there. And Jimmy's is hardly one of the ones you have to yell at the person sitting next to you. We are running out of places to go.h

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We were seated promptly when arriving. Noted when we were leaving that people were having to wait for seating, guessing they did not have reservations. Our server was great! Next time we will skip on the ordering the calamari as we have had better. We were seated in a booth next to the bar which made it a bit loud. Nothing that will defer us from going back.

    Just spectacular! You do not have to venture downtown for a delicious, tender steak! It's right here! Snuggle into a spacious booth with your significant other and enjoy the best food to be had in the Western burbs. 1600 degrees is the trick because our steaks were cooked to perfection. The bernaise sauce on the side was a nice treat as it wasn't even requested. You can't go wrong with this magnificent suburban eatery!!! Cudos, Mike!!!

    Our group of 4 enjoyed dining with unrushed, impeccable service. When our server heard that we were celebrating a special occasion, a free dessert was offered that was generous enough for all to share. Noise level was a bit too high for our conversation to be easily heard, an all too common problem in many restaurants . Crab cake sandwiches and a rich chocolate brownie were our favorites.

    There is just nothing bad to say about our visit to Jimmy's for restaurant week. Of the restaurants we have been to for restaurant week, this is the best experience we have had. They do it up right. You don't have 3 or 4 choices here, you have the full menu to choose from, plus appetizer specials. And that was one of the best steaks I've ever had. Kudos to the staff at Jimmy's!!

  • Our anaversary dinner at Jimmy's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Reservation was Saturday at 7:15 PM. Wife had filet, I had NY strip, both med rare. Her steak was OK, but not great. My steak was so tough I only ate a few bites. Both were more on the medium side, not med rare. Waitress was nice. She asked if we wanted bread, we said yes, but she never brought it. Salads were OK, but not great. By 8:30 the place was emptying out, not what you would expect on a Saturday night. We were disappointed. Bottom line, it's a nice place but if the food doesn't improve over what we had, they are doomed. Maybe we just ordered the wrong things. To be fair, we had eaten there once before and thought it was pretty good that time, but after this experience we likely won't return.

    We used this Resturant because it WS close to the Marriott SW. We arrived early for our 7 pm resie and since the room was sparsely populated we were seated right away. We ordered drinks and when delivered we were told that only one bottle of the selected beer was available. Not really a big deal but since the place wasn't full quite surprised. On the menu a big deal was made of the 1600 degree steaks,the server with heavy towels holding the plate I had to move the plate and was surprised that the plate was barley warm to the touch. I ordered the NY Strip medium rare and it arrived medium to medium well. The mashed potatoes served in a small bowl on the plate were cold with 2 large pieces of un-mashed at the bottom. No characters 4 server!

    We were there for a lunch dining and very few people in attendance - probably our 'early' arrival. They have plenty on the menu and what we had - crab cake sandwich and a sweet & spicy chicken sandwich, were very good. We would love to go back and try some of their fish recipes, they were very interesting. Our service was excellent and she provided plenty of suggestions, and (asked for) comments. Loved it!

    I have been to Jimmy's several times and have never had any issues...so I think this may be an isolated incident. My family visited for Restaurant Week, which we have done several times in the past. Maybe my expectations were high because of previous dining experiences, but my salad was average and my entree (filet, green beans, and au gratin potatoes) was horrible. Everything was either coated in WAY to much butter or it was greasy. It was pretty unappetizing and I barely touched my meal. Then when my "individual" size cheesecake showed up, it was literally two bites. I actually laughed when it was placed in front of me because I thought it was a joke!! Service was slow to top it off. It might be awhile before I return.

    Both our filets were over-done (we'd asked for "just moderately pink"). The waitress offered to replace them but we don't believe in wasting food. Failing that, she offered a free desert. Despite the over-cooking, the steaks were still tasty. We enjoyed our visit and will certainly return.

  • Noise & bright patio door/Poor Fish
    PaulD
    Dined on 7/17/2014
    Special Occasion Dinner not worth it - We sat in a larger corner dark booth (shades closed) right next to the door to the patio. Each time the wait staff went outside the bright sun blinded many at our table and there was a noisy commotion when wait staff bustled in and out or held the door open waiting for others to go to see tables etc. Also one of our two fish orders was horrible and inedible. The swordfish was over cooked, tough, very dry and lacked any signs of freshness. My guess was that it was frozen not fresh and the cook didn't know how to prepare it. A very expensive mistake at $26 a plate.
