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!

Restaurant week brunch menu had great options and everything came out fast and hot! The women’s bathroom closest to the bar (not sure if it is the only one) is freezing cold and very tiny.

The restaurant was highly recommended to us by some friends and it did not disappoint. The food was absolutely delicious and a great value. The crab cakes are the best I've had since moving to the region. We cannot wait to return to the eatery.

Prices were different than advertised during restaurant week. Waited to be seated minutes after2p and couldn’t get the lunch special. Prices advertised as $22 lunch or $35 dinner...dinners started at2p and made to pay $45. Will rethink next trip.

Crabcake sliders were tasty but left me feeling uneasy, but I really enjoyed the cream of crab soup. My server Craig was very pleasant, but noticeably busy and took a few extra moments to handle things. Overall a good dining experience.

Food excellent from a big menu selection.
A bit noisy at times.
Waitress good but not great- rookie?
Kitchen guy serving prime rib across the table dumped au jus all over wife - restaurant picking up dry clean tab - but when we got home the stuff was all the way through 3 layers and it was shower time!
One table mate wanted a simple sandwich - told in the lunch menu but not for dinner time.

I didn’t not like the idea that you could not make any changes to the restaurant week menu. I wanted a wedge salas instead of Greek and was told no.

Former Baltimoreans stopped here for lunch on the way to DC. Best crab cake I have eaten in many years. She-crab and Maryland crab soup combo was new experience and excellent. A bit noisy when crowded but that means everyone was enjoying a good time. Easy to reach from I-95 and very much worth the detour!

Staff seemed overwhelmed. 30minutes late seating us for our reservation. It was loud in the dining room. I guess they can treat people that way because the food was so good. Crab cakes were amazing. Asparagus ok. The creme Brûlée Cheesecake was to die for!

Hi John, we appreciate you expressing your frustrations, although, a full parking lot seems like a good thing to us. We have two different parking lots for our guests and many times people park across the street as well for any overflow. We look forward to seeing you again soon to indulge with us.

We come here quite a bit, as a matter of fact this was our 3rd visit in a week. Usually very good food , not that it was bad it just wasn’t up to par. My 25.00 filet was over cooked to my liking. My husband soft crabs were yummy. The appetizers of raw oysters were delicious, the coddies not so much. I’m surprised because they are my favorite. Our server was good ...except when our dinner came I asked her we normally get hot rolls and butter ? Her response was not what I was looking for.... oh I didn’t think you wanted bread since you had appetizers. Yikes! But she recovered and brought some out .it may have just been an off night for all. We come here regularly and also frequent the carry out. I guess my fault I should have brought it to someone’s attention.
