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!

Very friendly and attentive waitress. Our friends arrived early & placed a order for a half dozen oysters at the bar,while having a drink. We were already seated when they arrived, approximately 30min wait per their estimate. They were surprised it took so long being the restaurant wasn’t that busy.
Otherwise a very good meal & very nice waitress.

Every year we drive down from Harrisburg, PA just to eat at Jimmy's! My parents first found it on Diner's, Drive In's and Dives. Once they saw the episode we made our trip down and have been back every year since! We love that the reservations can be made through OpenTable and we don't have to worry about calling over the phone to reserve a table. Since we are coming from a small distance our actual time of arrival always varies, but Jimmy's always has a table ready for us whether we are early or a few minutes late! Their staff is out of this world! Their wait staff are extremely kind, patient, and very personable! We always enjoy great conversations with the staff and it goes much further than just our food! The food is to die for! The seafood is the freshest we have ever eaten and we simply can't get enough. This year I added a lobster tail to my pasta dish and it was the best decision ever. I have never had a lobster tail so juicy and tender after it was cooked! We love going down and we cannot WAIT to go back! In fact, we are planning a trip for this summer instead of waiting until February 2020!

It was actually an underwhelming experience. The salad tasted like onions but the waitress insisted that they don't send things back. Heavily insisted actually, the drink I order was garnished with strawberries and I'm allergic, and she stated again how they usually don't send drinks back but would make the exception since it wasn't listed on the menu. The whole experience was just uncomfortable for the food to be subpar. No thanks.

This was the first time at Jim's, we heard so many great thing about how good the food was, so we wanted to try it. We are from the Pasadena area so we don't get over to that side of town very often.
We got Coconut Shrimp as a starter, they where excellent and crab cake dinners. The crab cake was nice size, but to be honest they did not impress me at all, they had a flat taste. I am very critical when it comes to crab cakes, we live on the water and I guess we expect a lot when it comes to crab cakes . The service we had was excellent. Overall we had a nice experience at Jim's, we will try it again and try another dinner

Love this place for the relaxed atmosphere and delicious and creative food! If you love seafood as I do you will want to visit Jimmy's. The crab cake is worth a visit all by itself! I'm pretty picky about my crab cakes so do yourself a favor and go get one! Large pieces of crab meat and very little filler. I thought the cream of crab soup was divine, then I tasted the half and half which is half cream of crab and half Maryland crab. OMG that is the way to go! The richness of the cream of crab was complimented by the smooth acidity of the Maryland crab. Add in the large chunks of crab meat and next time I'm there I just may have a big bowl for lunch and nothing else! The menu is very creative from a seafood burrito to the seafood stack (one of my faves). Start with creamy mashed potatoes, top with Rockfish, crab, asparagus and shrimp and drizzle a delicious sauce over all and you are in heaven!!
Jimmy's Famous Seafood has definitely become one of my must visit often places to go.

The food was awesome! The waiter was very polite and professional. I started off with Half and gals soup which was the Maryland Crab Soup and cream of crab mix. That was very delicious. I also had the crab cake sliders which were very tasteful. My husband enjoyed the Oysters Rockfeller and the Caribbean Roc fish. The ambiance was relaxed.

I had the ribeye and crab cake with sweet potatoes and cream of crab. He had the porterhouse with asparagus. As always, I took half of my meal home because the portions are huge. I don’t waste my money at expense steak restaurants anymore. Jimmy’s steaks are top of the line! As always, the crab cake was phenomenal, full of lump crab meat. Troy is the best server. Period.

We had a hard time finding a parking space on their lot. We arrived at 6:55 for a 7:00 reservation. We weren’t seated until after 7:30. No place to wait without feeling in the way.
My wife’s oyster stew was delivered 15 minutes after my crab soup. My soup was eaten before hers arrived. Our entrees were delivered when her stew was half eaten. Overall poor timing by our waiter.
