Ate at Jimmy's to both celebrate and lament it closing down this weekend. The food at Jimmy's was consistently good and the bar menu (pre-COVID) an exceptional deal. My favorite dishes are the Mad Dog Salad and the crab cakes. Perfection!

we sat on the balcony overlooking the city. Nice view and weather was awesome. A great place to eat dinner. Unfortunately they are selling to a new owner, I hope they keep it the same.

We started our meal with cocktails and let me tell you Jimmy’s knows how to pour a good drink. We shared the crab cake, which was probably the best I’ve ever had. I asked the waiter if the chef would share the recipe and was told it was online — not. We both had steaks: my friend ordered the filet medium and I ordered the New York medium rare. On the first go ‘round the chef apparently confused the cooking times: my friend’s was a perfect medium rare and mine was a perfect medium. On the next try, my friend’s was perfect, but mine was “black and blue”. On the third try it came out rare. Finally it came out a perfect medium rare. Unfortunately my friend was pretty much done with her meal, while all I had had were the side dishes (which were great). But the NY was worth the wait — one of the very best steaks I have ever had. The service was absolutely horrible. It seemed as if our waiter was trying to ignore us. It wasn’t that he was busy — he stepped out onto the patio several times during the course of the evening. Overall, it’s a shame that Aspen is losing this restaurant.

This has been on our favorite must go list for years, but we were disappointed with our dinner there this year. My wife’s trout was extra fishy and not as good as previous visits. Her side of Kale was way over cooked and was just a blob on her plate. My sister-in-laws mushroom entree was pretty tasteless. I was also disappointed about the lack of less expensive wines on there wine list. It wouldn’t be all that hard to have a few bottles of decent wines that cost less than $100.

We had another great family dinner at Jimmy’s. We’ve been going to Jimmy’s for 17 years, ever since our son and daughter-in-law’s 4th of July wedding weekend that included fireworks watched from Jimmy’s.

We always make a point of going to Jimmy’s when we are in Aspen and we wanted to make sure we got there this year before we go back to Florida and before Jimmy’s ends it’s long, wonderful run.

Thank you for being such an important part of the community and an important part of the lives of those who live here year-round, part-time or like us, whenever we can get there. All the best! Cheers!

This was one of the most unenjoyable restaurants I’ve ever been to in the town of Aspen. Not only do they not know how to properly make your order, but you’re dining in a place with no AC very unenjoyable meal. I would rethink your dining needs before visiting this place

Have loved dining at Jimmy’s over the years and will miss them. Having said that, dinner was mediocre last night. Crab cakes were lukewarm as was the filet, sides also were on the coolish side. Very pricey.

Food was good. Service was kind, but very slow. Perhaps that is just a function of them being short staffed? Other tables seemed to be getting served faster.
