The Greek salad was disappointing. There wasn't much difference between the Greek salad and the one that came with my wife's dinner but I had to pay $5 extra.

I have been to this location previously. I have found it to be lacking in several ways. This time, our server was very absent. There was a loud band at 5 pm on a Sunday with very loud drums that could be heard at every table. My BBQ Chicken Salad was lacking in flavor. Overall, I don't think we will return.

The food was excellent. The fried calamari appetizer was very tender and tasty, and the half-size portion was plenty for four people. There was a great band playing in the lounge, which is where we were seated. It was quite loud and the service became more sketchy as the area became more crowded. I would not sit in the lounge area again but would definitely return to the restaurant.

First time at this local restaurant and I enjoyed the experience. The food was very good and the prices very reasonable. The wine list was limited but there were a few higher end exceptions. Once the band began in the lounge, it became a bit loud so I would recommend an early dinner unless you're staying to enjoy the music.

Great place. Filet mignon was phenomenal. I don't usually even eat steak but it was PERFECT. If you say medium rare they do it right with just a little pink in it. So many places cook "medium well" the way you should cook a well done steak and this place doesn't do that it was perfect.

From the greeting at the door to the last drop of wine, we had the most delightful evening. The service was outstanding, the food was superb and the birthday dessert was delicious also!
This is a place we always recommend to our friends and will continue to do so.

Very dissatisfied, my two drinks were watered down, my food came 15 minutes ahead of the rest of the table. They provided free dessert but should have comped the meal due to their screw up!

Our server showed up took our drink orders and didn't return for 20 minutes, I had to get the attention of the manager to get someone to come to our table with bread and take our dinner order. We have been to Jimmy's many times and never had such poor service. And all this happened around 530pm, the place was over half empty.

We had reservations for 7:00 pm got to the restaurant at 6:35. We were seated right away. I was quite surprised that the restaurant was not busy. Now I know why. We had to wait awhile for our salad. Some other server brought our salad and forgot the bread basket. Had to go get the bread. While we were eating our salad our server brought our dinner. Cramming all dishes on the table. My husband and I ordered NY strip steaks and my baked potato needed to be sent back because it was not hot. The butter didn’t even melt in the potato. Two different servers kept coming up to us and ask if we were done with our salad because we put the salad aside to make room for dinner. The steaks were very fatty and we both took most of our dinner home
I don’t think I will return to this restaurant again. For the amount of money we paid for the steaks, I would rather go to a fast food place

Delicious food, and they are not stingy with the portions! Perfectly tender calamari appetizer. Nicely spiced (black pepper) prime rib served with delicious roasted asparagus, done right!

Positives: The owner, Tom, came by to greet us and was super friendly and nice. The chicken entrée was delicious!

Negatives: Our waiter rushed us to order, stopping back every 1-2 minutes and was very urgent and insistent to take our order, which we considered rude. The salad is quite old school (iceberg lettuce, radishes, etc.); a mixed green salad would be a more modern offering and better received.
