Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "It took our waitress awhile to come to our table at the beginning. I usually order what is on special at a restaurant which I did along with two others and they ran out of the prime rib. We all ordered steak instead which was good."

  • "Exceptional! The food and service were excellent! Our server was so attentive. Great evening!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "This was our first visit to Jimmy's -food was very good, but our server was great. She had excellent suggestions for everything from appetizer to dessert and a very nice wine to accompany our meal."

  • "I always love coming to this restaurant.....food is usually great and I take business and family to this spot...it is close to my home."

  • "Staff was attentive and friendly. Happy hour specials were reasonable. Portions were smaller for some dishes but at the lower prices you can just sample more variety. The food was great! Atmosphere was a mix between casual and semi formal. Perfect for a first date."

  • "Don't go to Jimmy's if you'd like to have a conversation. The noise level is over the top. I've tried this restaurant three times with the same result--unbearable noise level, and it doesn't matter if it's lunch or dinner. Our table could not conduct a conversation. The last time I asked for a booth thinking that the upholstery would absorb some of the sound. It didn't and we ended up going somewhere else for dessert so we could have the visit we'd intended to have at dinner. Too bad. I like the decor and the food, but the Twin Cities has may other good restaurant choices that are more attuned to customers' needs."

  • "I took a "stab in the dark" finding a restaurant to eat dinner at while we went on an adventure to adopt a new pet. We are not from that neighborhood, and didn't know any restaurants, so I just looked on-line. Jimmy's popped up, their web-site showed white table-cloths, which implied a fancy restaurant, but also had a friendly name so it seemed fun. We totally enjoyed our experience there: wait staff was attentive and very friendly, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was just the right noise level!!"

  • "We had an excellent Mother's Day brunch at Jimmy's Food and Cocktails. They didn't have a ton of selections on their brunch but the food they had was top notch. I've found over the years (being sort of a brunch connoisseur) that when a restaurant tries to provide too many varieties of food , they just can't do that many selections well. I'd rather they focus on a number of selections and make sure they're all great which is what this brunch did. We really loved it. The staff was great - I loved the atmosphere and will definitely go again"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "WAY overpriced. Three people $130! That was with 1 beverage each. I would rate the bloody mary as a 2 out of 10. The buffet was ok. Not great, not bad. $15-20 bucks a head would have been a fair price. I have eaten here before and it was pretty good but I will never do their brunch buffet again."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We're moving into the neighborhood, so we thought we'd try Jimmy's for Mother's Day brunch and see if we should add it to our list of dining options when we move. First, it's a nice looking place. The staff is professional, courteous and on-top of things. The brunch had a lot of options, but the food itself was just "good" (not "great"). I did enjoy the Greek salad and the pasta. The steamed vegetables were VERY salty and eggs were bland (as mass-cooked eggs usually are). We're going to go back and order off of the menu next time. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Very busy Sat night . Had a reservation and was kept waiting over 20 minutes to be seated. One person ordered the prime rib and it looked awful - light brown color - very odd. She didn't eat much of it and it certainly didn't look appealing. Food was overpriced for what was served. Service fair. Had to ask to have candles lit at our table. Certainly didn't feel special. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Have been here multiple times the service was very very slow. My husband's steak was tough and two of us had different halibut dishes and neither was impressive. Really just a so so visit. "

  • "I've been eating at Jimmy's since it opened, mostly for client lunches or meeting for happy hour. The staff there are always attentive, knowledgeable and show a great team spirit that never leaves you wondering where your server is. Food quality is above average and always served fresh and on time."

  • "The menu offered a great variety of entrees and appetizers. I thought the special halibut dishes were especially good ( flown in daily & never frozen). Waiters obviously kept the diners foremost in their minds and provided excellent service."

  • "We have been to the Thanksgiving Dinner and recently the Easter Brunch. Both times the food was fabulous! I liked that we were served at our table for Thanksgiving. I usually do not like buffet service, but the Easter Brunch had a great variety of food and everything that should be hot was still hot by the time I was eating it. We loved the small bites for dessert. Thank you for making our holidays a time for conversation instead of an exhausting ordeal of shopping, cooking, serving and cleaning up."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We really enjoyed Jimmy's Easter Brunch. There was an excellent variety of food including prime rib, ham, turkey and pork loin. We also really appreciated the extended hours with service being offered until 4pm. Many other restaurants ended their holiday service at 2pm, which would have caused us to feel rushed to arrive or finish eating. As always, Jimmy's made our young boys and our gluten-free family members very comfortable."

  • "One can count on a great meal at Jimmy's. The tables are not crowded which is very appreciated. The service staff must be under compulsion to push the tab total which is very irritating. The menu speaks for itself. Let it be."

  • "The food was excellent. I had a rib eye steak that I requested be chef's choice. It came perfectly done. I don't usually eat my steaks rare, but this was excellent rare. The scalloped potatoes were also excellent. My girlfriend had the crabcakes and they were also done to perfection. We were both also very happy with the portion sizes. We don't like it when the portion sizes are so big they can feed a small family in most other countries. So, we were happy that the portions were not too big, but the quality was excellent. The noise from the bar was quite audible but not too distracting. "
