Seafood
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!

Absolutely! The best crab cakes I've ever had. Coming from a state that doesn't specialize in crab cakes, I have gotten used to fried cakes. Broiled crab cakes is the way to go. Thank you to Thomas, our server. He was super chill and the service was great!

Our service was terrible! 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! Won’t be returning!

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.

You’ll be ready for a drink after dealing with the congested parking lot! It’s always packed, but there’s a reason!
The menu is expansive, but really no need to stray past the signature Market Crab Cakes.
Comfortable ambiance and friendly service.

Had a birthday gathering for my sister and everything was wonderful. We were able to have cocktails in the lounge/sports bar, we then switched to the second more reserved bar prior to being seated. We ordered lots of different items off the menu and EVERYTHING was delicious. We had NO complaints and will be returning. Our waitress, Ally, was absolutely amazing, very patient and extremely helpful.

Thanks so much for this lovely experience.

Come here for the very good food, reasonably priced, and ample if not excessive portions. But it's not centrally located and in a no-so-great neighborhood. There is a safe and well-lit parking lot adjacent to the restaurant. Warm rolls start off the meal. Flatbreads were great but could have been an entrée. Fish was well-prepared and sides (green beans) were actually delicious. The interior is large and informal; you don't get the feeling you are in an upscale or modern place, just informal and comfortable. The deserts were amazing and enough to share for two. Definitely worth going to if you are in the area.

It's Baltimore, hon. There's a lot going on here, which is part of the attraction. If you're looking for a quiet night out - then this is not the place for you. If you want Charm City chaos, then you've found your place. Crab cakes can't be beat. Bartender didn't get the drink right - best to stick with beer or soft drinks.
