One of the worst meals I’ve had in the last 10 years! Food was terrible....I was sick all night! Very expensive! Service was nonexistent. There are much better places to eat in Aspen....avoid this place!

Celebrated our 50th Anniversary and were treated to a nice dessert and many “happy anniversary” greetings. Being originally from Maryland, we reluctantly ordered the mini crabs that were billed as “lump blue crab meat”. They were delicious, as were the lamb chops that came as a shared platter.

Great food, but at Aspen prices! Very good service, great steaks. But with the wine, it averaged about $100/person including tip and tax. I would go back, but be aware of the cost!

Dinner and drinks at Jimmys was lovely. Myself and my friends were celebrating my birthday and they looked after us wonderfully. The food was incredible, you got a lot for your money. Cocktail choices were amazing, so many to choose from! Presentation was great. The only down fall for me would be the outside terrace could do with a little background music as it was awfully quiet!

This seems to be a well-known local restaurant. It's casual (and we sat on the porch), but the food was very good with classics as well as imaginative dishes. We had a wonderful server, Gregg, who was very knowledgeable, helpful, professional--and who also had a wonderful sense of humor.

I was in Aspen for a few days and on my own for dinner one evening when I decided to try Jimmy's. I consider the way a restaurant treats its single diners to be the true indicator of its quality of service. I was seated at a surprisingly good table with a view, and my waitress was initially attentive. She even checked with the sommelier on a wine I had a question about. Then she took my order and disappeared. I did not see her again for the rest of the evening. In fact, no one checked on me from the time my food was delivered until it was time to clear my plate. The trout was excellent, but the service I experienced was very poor.
