Great food but low staffed. We had to wait around 45 mins or more to get food. The staff was amazing but just low staffed

The good part: Atmosphere was very nice with heat lamps and lighting. The bad part: Service was very bad. Our waiter never came back to our table for a long time after taking our order. After our drink came and we sat there for a long time, some other waiter brought us our salad, not our original waiter. He never asked if we wanted another drink. I had to ask some other waiter walking by to bring us one. When he did come back, he didn't even know if we had gotten our salad. Our reservations were at 8:15pm and we were seated right away, but we didn't get our main course until 10:00pm. The food was cold and the filet mignon was not cooked right, and when we told the waiter, he just walked away. I didn't want to have a confrontation with our waiter. We didn't want dessert, we just wanted to leave that place. I would have gotten up and left, but it was my husband's birthday and it was late, and there would have been no other restaurants open. There was not that many people there so I don't know why the service was so bad. And we noticed another table of a few people who got up and left too. First time we did not leave a tip. The bill was expensive and I think we should have been treated better. I would not go back there again.

My boyfriend, small dog, and I went to Jimmy’s for a nice dinner during our recent trip to Lake Tahoe. We sat at a table outside with a view of the water. Our server was so lovely and thoughtful. She had the Avocado Greek salad we were sharing split for us in the kitchen instead of us having to try to split it at the table ourselves. For our starter we had the Baked Ricotta and then for entrees we picked the Risotto and the Lamb. I would highly recommend all of the dishes we had, they were delicious!

I had breakfast at Jimmy's with my husband. Both of our dishes contained poached eggs that were overcooked, which felt like eating rubber. We overheard another couple from the next table complaining to the waiter about their overcooked eggs. They didn't get a resolution so they kept eating their overcooked eggs, too. I had avocado toast, which was probably made with an avocado mash from the day before as it was already going brown. The waiting staff was okay, but the vibe felt like "you can eat here while we run our errands". For example, someone who I imagine was the manager, came to check on the staff while we were eating there going through their daily schedule. Overall, it is an overpriced disappointing experience.

Eggs benedict was a disappointment. The yolk on the poached egg was hard. We asked to replce the eggs because the yolk should be runny. Waiter came back with yet another set or hard yolk eggs. Waiter did not come to check on us or refilled our water glass unless we called him.

This was our 3rd time dining at Jimmy’s during our 2 week Tahoe vacation; my husband and I vacation in SLT every year. Walter was a great waiter, as usual! Ambiance was fantastic, as usual! But this last meal was lacking: my “medium”’cooked burger was “well done”. My husband’s breakfast potatoes were dry, dry, dry! We LOVE Jimmy’s...but the food was quite disappointing. SAD!

Sadly we did not get to enjoy our entree fresh and hot. We arrived at 8:20 and was seated pretty immediately. Received menu and 10 mins later placed our order...for drinks, starters, salad and main course at same time.

We received drinks after 20 mins and starter after another 10 mins. After receiving drinks and starter that’s when it went downhill. It took another 40 mins from there to receive our salad. Salad as in singular because they brought out one. We assumed maybe the server didn’t hear the request for the second so we waited 10 mins before deciding to split it. 10 mins later the server brings out two salads. That makes 3! Since we started sharing the one he went ahead and took the offers back.

We finished our salad and then we wait. And wait. And wait. With the exception of another server filling our water glass there was no update from our server on when we would receive our meal. Finally at 9:50 our server comes out and updated us that the kitchen is behind because hotel guest that couldn’t get a reservation were ordering room service. We said ok and understood. That was until tables around us that were sat well after our arrival (at least an hour) started to get their meals. I even made an excuse for one table thinking maybe they didn’t order starters or salad, but when another table of 4 received their meals and had clearly been sat later...we had enough!

We decided we would just pay for what we had since at that point we were close to the 2 hour mark. And it was getting late! We asked for our server he never came. Finally we jot up and headed to bar area to pay and met up with our server on the way.

It was too late at that point because we had already grabbed our items and packed up to leave.

When sharing our reason for wanting to close tab and go the bartender comped our meal, we paid for drinks. While appreciative for that, it was clearly too late to eat and enjoy our meal. We understand Covid changes some things still aren’t acceptable.

Wonderful birthday dinner experience at Jimmy's ,off the beaten path close to the shores of Lake Tahoe. Reserved a romantic table for 2, with elements of water(lakeview),fire (personal firepit),and air(lovely breeze) as a setting. Chelsey took care of our every desire starting with signature cocktails; a blackberry white linen for me and a manhatten for my husband. I loved the seafood risotto, (scallops were amazing, buttery and sweet).John enjoyed his generous portion of herb crusted rack of lamb cooked to perfection. We ended the meal with an amazing rich chocolate mousse cake, a refreshing lemon tart and champagne to celebrate the evening. We will be adding Jimmy's at the Landing as our restaurant of choice next time we are in the Tahoe area. All the best Victoria and John from San Diego.

We went for my birthday dinner, and the service was excellent! Kevin took such good care of us and made our experience here very memorable. The food was fantastic! Could not complain about anything other than it a little pricey, but that’s to be expected. And worth every penny!!! Awesome memory of first time in Tahoe! Thank you Kevin!

it was okay, but we had asked for a table far outside, and although there were many tables empty, we were told they were all reserved, and needed more than two people. But there tables of two on the furthest outside...and we had reserved as well- several weeks ago! My husband thought it was because we didn't slip some money to the person seating us- if this is true, it is unfortunate.

Jimmy’s is a hidden gem in SLT. We breakfast, lunch and dine - one of each - during our annual trip to Tahoe. The atmosphere is laid back, which is exactly why we come to Tahoe, and the food is quite good. Nothing too fancy or frivolous - but very tasty. Sitting outside on the patio is a treat, especially for those of us who travel from areas with 110 degree+/- heat indices. Feels like vacation: from the heat and from the daily grind of work and travel!!

Breakdast was so-so .. the bacon was 90% fat, eggs were fried hard (I asked for over easy, potatoes were greasy, and the most insulting bacon wss that given the price there was only one slice of bread for the toast. Smacks loudly of cost-cutting.

Nice setting outside but does not really have a view of the lake. Waiter was excellent and staff made a solid effort to overcome an initial mistake. Great menu but unfortunately the food didn’t live up to the description. Both the Halibut (two orders) and Sea Bass were over cooked and both orders of vegetable steaks were over salted to the point of being inedible. We did not find a lot of good options for fine dining with in a nice outdoor setting in South Lake Tahoe so given the good service and ambiance, we would give them one more try on a future visit. Not inexpensive so based on our first experience, it’s a bit of a gamble.

We arrived early before our appointed reservation and were able to enjoy the view while we waited. We were seated at our appointed time. Kevin, our waiter saw to our every need, including some of my food challenges. The food was delicious and we awarded it the "YUM" factor. We experienced a totally delightful dinner! We will definitely be back!
