Mac & Cheese
mad dog ranch BBQ sauce, mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables
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.
Great service. Food excellent
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.
Our server Oliver was great and the food was amazing too. All around great experience.
Some of the food was fantastic, some was overly fussy without being overly tasty. A bit overpriced for the value.
Fabulous meal all around!
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.

Jimmy’s atmosphere and staff were very nice. The food was fine but nothing special. For the price you paid, we expected better food.
Average food seems overpriced even for Aspen . Service good. Nice ambiance.
We heard a lot about junkies and it was just ok. Service was
Good but server never smiled. Food was Good but not great and the bar very small.
Great service. Wonderful martinis. They handled my wife’s special request very easily.
Always a pleasure to have dinner here. Never disappointed! Wonderful menu with great choices and great specials. Lively and fun atmosphere.
We love Jimmy’s. Every time.
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!
Food was great and the service was excellent! Had the ribeye and salmon and the steak tartare was fantastic. Would come back!
Great food and service. Would definitely go back.
Lovely meal & awesome service
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.
Thank you so much for the great review! You really understand the essence of what we want to bring to our guests, night after night, for 23 years running. We work very hard at it and we appreciate it when returning guests notice. You are what makes our business successful, after all. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit. Cheers, Jessica Lischka, general manager
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.
A wonderful evening with beautiful wine and fine food. We thank the sommelier for his recommendations and Lauren for her fine service.
Been coming to Jimmy's for many years and the food and service is always excellent. Thank you Jimmy!
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.
Love Jimmy’s. Definitely a local staple.
But too much noise
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.
The steaks were really great, service was top notch. Our family had a great dinner!
An aspen classic! Great food and friendly service in relaxed clubby environment. Steak fantastic and extensive wine list with knowledgeable sommelier.
Can’t wait to come back next year!
need to update ladies restroom - not up to par of an upscale, relatively expensive restaurant
Amazing food . Loved it
Our waiter Oliver was so awesome. He is the best. The food was great. The service was great. We can’t wait to come back. Now I understand was this place is an aspen staple. We love Jimmy’s. Xoxox
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
Vacation - trout delicious.
Really great vegetarian options and the boys had the best steak. Professional unassuming staff. We enjoyed it so much we went back again later in the week.
Great for a larger party as the tables and space are bigger than most in Aspen. Beet risotto was excellent as were all the steaks. really nice evening!
Jimmy’s is always high quality and the service was fantastic. Steaks and Seafood both.
Here with the family to celebrate Thanksgiving. Our go to place for the holiday. Thank you!
Amazing Thanksgiving dinner!
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.
