I’ve been coming to Jimmy’s for many years and brought three new friends in with me. Unfortunately, our table was seated next to a party of approximately 12 people who were extremely loud and obnoxious. This made for an unpleasant meal as we, along with much of the restaurant, had to listen to them speak very loudly and pound on the table. While it was not the fault of Jimmy‘s or staff, definitely detracted from our meal and made for an unpleasant experience.

Good steak and service. The room is comfy but pretty loud. I acoustics are not great. I could hear a woman talking from 4 tables away like she was sitting next to me. No view of the mountain, but a cozy room. Nice bar at entry.

The Mac and cheese was terrible the steak was not great for the price. I’m used to high end steak house quality and this was not comparable.

It’s your average restaurant to me. Lamb lollipops were below average....definitely not Elway’s lamb in Denver. These were thin. Over priced for the order.
Crab cake was fishy smelling meaning to much crab lung. 0k overall. Slaw was great!
Onion soup was great. Spicy shrimp very spicy with cayenne. Beet risotto was amazing. Very unique risotto! I did not have a steak. Great wine selection!

We’ve been going to jimmy’s since the day they opened. It’s wonderful to see the same restaurant staff year after year, the food evolves and never disappoints, and our overall experience is always stellar.
We highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions. Known as a top steak house but the seafood is fresh and delicious. They also have an award winning wine list that is well valued.

Everything was delicious! A little fancier than we expected but we were still comfortable. The breadsticks they bring to the table are fabulous. And our steak and roasted chicken were terrific.

I brought in a group of friends to this restaurant and I’m sorry to say I will never return again.
While the food was good, the wait staff was not, most notably our server. She was short/dismissive most of the night, and gave our party a sense of feeling being too much trouble. I had ordered, at her suggestion, salmon to be cooked ‘rare +’ — this was something she offered when I asked her I wanted something between rare and medium-rare. I had never heard of this before, but said yes.
My friend had also ordered salmon medium-rare and when our meals where delivered the servers seem confused about where the salmons went, placing one down for someone who didn’t order it...which then made me concerned that they had mixed our salmons up. When I asked our server which salmon was which, she said, as if I was an idiot, that ‘rare +’ didn’t exist (though the entire table heard her offer it to me) so she ordered mine medium-rare. No apology was offered and it was clear she wanted me to shut up and deal with it.
I spoke with a manager about this and he said it was up to me to tip her or not. Never was a comp on my meal offered or any further care for my upset. I was buying all my friends dinner that night and we all collectively placed our last night together dinner in their hands, and they failed us.
This was then followed by a reach out email that suggested I should have not been as upset by the bad service, while at no time did anyone call me to hear out my entire experience.
I have never experienced something like this - ever. The option to not tip her as the solution fell way short. (I actually did tip her something in the end as that’s what my integrity asks of me.)
I hate writing this review , but feel compelled in hopes that others are apprised of the risk they take with Jimmy’s. Sadly, with their follow up email they made me wrong for being upset, rather than asking how they could make thing right. I wouldn’t recommend eating here, I didn’t feel valued or heard.

Thank you for your feedback. We had a particularly rowdy group in the dining room on the night that you joined us for dinner, and I'm sorry that impacted your experience. We did ask them to quiet down, however I'm not sure it made much of a difference. I am glad you enjoyed you dinner and I hope next time you visit, we don't have such noisy bunch joining us at the same time. Cheers, Jessica Lischka, GM

Sadly, Jimmy’s just seems tired. Clearly more a family restaurant these days, you have to navigate a tight bar to get to a very large dining room with very little in the way of atmosphere. Bright spot was great service from front staff to waitress. Great location, but time for a makeover. And in that spot, it’ll be worth it.

Thanks for the great review. Oliver is a great member of our team, and has at been dining at Jimmy's long before he began working for us a few years ago. He signed our wall when he was just four years old! We are glad you enjoyed his service and look forward to welcoming you back again on your next visit. Cheers, Jessica Lischka General manager

service was the main reason for such a poor review. My steak was excellent unfortunately by the time they brought my wife's salad and the steak sauce I requested it had cooled off significantly. I spoke to the manager upon on leaving and he just said we will make note of it. I suppose they get a lot of tourist trade and are not concerned about return customers. Should be listed as a "try at your own peril" kind of place.
