Since 1974, Jimmy's has exhibited a commitment to excellence in the restaurant industry second to none. Although made famous for our award-winning seafood and steamed hard-shell crabs, our menu also includes various tastes from all over the world, such as grilled lamb chops, a monstrous, savory prime rib, and barbecued baby back ribs. We have two seating areas - a casual, fun lounge and a beautiful dining room which is divided for those seeking to crack open some hot steamed crabs and those seeking intimacy. Seafood is flown in daily to ensure unrivaled freshness and to allow for new specials every evening!

We went to Jimmy’s because we heard about their reputation for having great crabcakes. The crabcakes and stuffed rockfish were excellent as well as the soups. Service was great - our server Lauren was fabulous. Simply awesome dinner- we’d certainly go back if in the area.

First time here though I grew up in Baltimore. Went here for Easter dinner and it did not disappoint. The host staff was very organized and friendly. Our waiter, an older gentleman was very kind, attentive and friendly. He joked with my family without being corny and helped us make up out minds since I wanted to eat all of the things! The food was really good. The hot rolls were awesome. Our appetizers, Clams Casino and Coddies were served hot and ready and very delicious. The coddies werent your normal paddy style. More of a ball. But they were excellent. Our entrees were all served timely as well. Only hiccup was my salad did not arrive before my meal. All of us got seafood and it all tasted fresh, perfectly seasoned and done just right. For the price, though up there, you pay the same at some high end places and dont get nearly the amount. So what gives?!?! On to desserts. I got the bread pudding, which you can go ahead and just bury me in. My kids got milk shakes that were almost as tall as them and they tasted like ole time milk shakes. Very good experience. Will definitely come back.

As usual, the food and service at Jimmy's Famous were outstanding. We were celebrating our aunt's 80th birthday, and the waiter was exceptionally kind and patient with her. The only downside was that the restaurant tends to be VERY loud even when not filled up, so it was even harder for a senior to hear. But all in all, a very good experience.

We made a reservation for 8:45, we were not seated until 9:00, which is unacceptable. What is the point of having to reserve a dining room table if we cannot be seated at the reserved time?

We ordered kids spaghetti w marinara since we went on Friday during lent, and I knew as soon as I ordered it the waitress did not get it and sure enough it came out loaded w meat sauce. My husbands salmon had extremely too much lemon and that was all you could taste.The waitress was not at all attentative to our table or needs. Overall a waste of money and a lot of aggravation!

So I usually love Jimmy's my last experience was wonderful. However, when I came on April 7th for my anniversary our experience was much different. The crab stars went from a crispy crunchy wonton to a chewy doughy wonton with too much cream cheese in the middle. My crabcake was also disappointing. It lacked flavor and seasoning which I was surprised about because the last time I was there it was amazing. My husband loved his porterhouse. His crabby mac and cheese however also lacked flavor. Thomas our waiter was amazing though. But because the wontons, crabcake and mac and cheese were a let down, we will not be returning to Jimmy's.

My party was seated soon after our arrival. We were greeted by our server soon thereafter. The server took our drink order. She offered to provide me with a sample of 2 beers that I was not familiar with to let me decide on my beer selection. The server answered our questions about several items on the menu to help us decide what we wanted to order. Our food order was filled efficiently. The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. None of the four people in our party were able to finish our food order and take-home boxes were provided by the server. It was a wonderful experience.

I visited Jimmy's recently to celebrate a birthday. We were a party of 5 and it took almost 10 minutes for our server to greet us. Another almost 15 to bring back 4 soft drinks and a cocktail. Granted, we were there on a Sunday evening and was told by the server there were several parties. Our appetizers came roughly 22 minutes after ordering (after receiving our drinks) and our entrees around 20 minutes more. I ordered a crab cake with imperial sauce which was very good, two others ordered the seafood combination, and another sushi. We were satisfied, however, my brother ordered seafood alfredo and the noodles were dry, brownish, clunky. He complained and the server brought him another batch. The second alfredo dish was well ahead of the first but took another 15 minutes to prepare. Overall, I wouldn't recommend Jimmy's Seafood for a dine-in experience. It's carry-out fare at best.
