Jimmy's Famous Seafood Ratings and Reviews
The manager there was rude and refused to honor our reservation because we were 7 minutes late. He let a party of 17 walk out the door because of his totally unprofessional behavior. We contacted the restaurant repeatedly for a group reservation and NEVER received a return call. Because of this, we booked our reservation through open table. We were treated rudely and were told we could not sit together in an empty restaurant. The manager was so busy trying to punish us for being tardy than pleasing us. We drove an hour and 45 minutes so 7 minutes late was pretty good. We took our business to Mo's in Little Italy and had a fabulous night. I will never return customer service is key in my book.
My family celebrated my husband's birthday and we saw the restaurant on The Food Network. This was our first visit, but definitely not our last. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. I highly recommend this spot. Even though the name says seafood, we had seafood, steaks, and chicken. Everything was very good!
Great food and service from the beginning to the end. My mom and had a crab filled night. As I’m new to Maryland and she was here for a visit. We had the crab soup, shared the crab balls, and for the main course crab mac and cheese and crab legs.
We had a great time. The prices were reasonable and did not taste like a tourist trap where food can fall by the waist side. Will be coming back and will be a place to show off new city to any guests.
We went to Baltimore for Thanksgiving weekend because none of our family would be in town. And if eating out on Thanksgiving, why not make it seafood? The meal was delicious. Every item carefully prepared. It seemed that others had opted for a non-traditional meal; the place was full. Lots of family groups, including children, but it wasn't too noisy. Our server, Gabby, was especially nice.
The waitress was horrible, it took forever to take our order and she only came to check on us once. I had to keep trying to get her attention to get the rest of our meal. The biscuits were cold the Mac cheese was watery and I was disappointed by the service. The only thing the manager did was punish the waitress by taking the gratuity off. The manager also reprimanded her in the front of the restaurant which is unprofessional. This was my second visit and total opposite of our first visit. The waitress never asked our preference on how we wanted our crab cakes and assumed we didn’t know what certain foods were on the menu. The rest of the food was good but I wished it was all hot. Hopefully the next visit will be as the first time. The crab cakes are worth coming back for.
never received my soup or salad. Had to ask about it when meal arrived. I took the soup, but it was too late for the salad. I thought they should have taken a little of the bill, but never did. Waitress never asked to refresh our drinks, never asked if we wanted dessert, she just gave me our bill. Dirty plates after we finished were never cleared.
While I do not typically lead with cost, I must say that this is an expensive dinner($300 for 4). Having said that, the crab cakes were as amazing as advertised. At $39 for 2 fist sized, no filler cakes means you get what you pay for. Broiled with a sauce and lemon on the side. Plus you get a side and I chose grilled asparagus. 3 of us chose the crab cakes plus 2 salads and a pretty good cream of crab soup. The lone holdout picked a seafood pasta diablo and it had plenty of shrimps & crab plus a bit of a kick to it. Regulars were greeted by name so this place is well established. The service was a bit lacking but it was a Saturday night at 7pm so not unusual and the server looked like he had been there since Capt Ahab crab fished.
I will stack these crab cakes up against the best I have had but would suggest $50 for Santa Marg Pinot Gris a bit high as was $4 for club soda and $18 for 2 crown royal rocks tells me to drink before or after dinner elsewhere.
Friendly waitress, delicious food and large portions. However, the waitress did not remember everyone's orders and didn't write them down. Ordered plate of raw oysters and didn't get them when everyone else got their soup/salad. When I asked, waitress played it off as though she didn't understand my order originally and went back to put in the order. Everyone had finished their soup/salad, and our entrees came out 15 min later but my RAW oysters took another 15 min! I should have refused the oyster plate when they finally came to the table but didn't. And, of course, no offer to reduce the check as a result of the delay. With 5 people at a table, ordering may have been too complicated for organized delivery of the food.
You find a view of the water, but you will have some of the best crab cakes ever! We dined at high tops around the bar and had a fabulous lunch. It is located outside of town a bit, but well worth the trip. They even have a fresh seafood market on site for purchases and mail order. Do try the crB Cakes, they were fantastic. They even prepare a gluten free crab cake if requested.
The food was excellent in Jimmy's Famous Seafood Restaurant. We got the crab cake and every mouthful was full of crab meat! Order 2 crab cake2 and was not able to eat the 2nd one. Packed it up for take out and had it the next day. Taste just as great as the first day. Definitely will be back at this restaurant!
Took my wife for her birthday. We always like to try new places. We had been trying to get to Jimmys for a long time. Finally we were able to try them out. Food and portions were phenomenal! Your server Yianni was great. He really took great care of us. Only con to the experience was how fast the food came. Halfway thru apps came soup and before I started the soup out came the entree. I noticed this with many tables. Food was still great! I recommend!
The best crab cakes on the planet. Also, one of us had fried shrimp and they were fantastic.....just the right amount of breading. The shrimp were thus preserved—you could taste shrimp and not breading. And the Maryland Crab Soup is always a treat.
We traveled from out of town to go to Jommys after seeing it on a shiw "Food Patadise". The trip was well worth it. The food was looked and tasted delicious. It was a great portion and worth every bite. The waitress was friendly and funny. I would definitely return and recommend to others.
