Jimmy's on First
Book your next event with us
Event days seem to be too much to handle for the kitchen. Waited over 45 min for a calamari and fries. No happy hour. Service was very poor . Not coming back.
they treated out group great even though they were really busy when we first got there.
All good overall. Thanks for the experience
We ate dinner both nights of our Football weekend. The food was very good and served hot. Very conveniently located in our hotel.
This is a great place to go if you are headed to the SODO area for an event or concert. Great food, good value and great service.
Food was good but service wasn’t very good. Ordered a Guinness on draft and about 10 minutes later the waiter said they were changing out the keg. Then 5 or so minutes later he came back out and said the Keg blew. Ordered a different beer and then roughly 5-10 minutes later the lead waiter came with a Guinness and stated to me that the keg was fixed. Then went to order another Guinness and came back said that they did not have any more Guinness stated whey I had was the last of the previous keg. It didn’t make sense. They did talk with each either since I got two different stories. Plus there was only one waiter and it was way to busy for one waiter. Plus we got there two of us about 10 minutes prior to a party of 12 came in. He came and told us that the party of 12 was getting served first before us. Just not a very good overall experience at this establishment.
The food was bland and the server was rude.
We went there for our Christmas lunch before going to Enchant and it was mediocre. They need to watch what is on their screens too. Surgical procedures are not the best during a meal.....
Proximity to Safeco Field is great.
Not the best food or service but was fine for a family dinner before going to Enchant Seattle at Safeco Field
Service was very poor. Salmon was over cooked but couldn't let the server know because we rarely saw him
Our server was nice but evidently had way too many tables assigned to her, I had to flag her down everytime we needed something, water, anther glass of wine, the check - really terrible service.
Very slow service. Spotlights shining into your face make for a lousy atmosphere. Overpriced thanks to proximity to stadium.
We made reservations on Thanksging for a turkey dinner. We arrived 30 minutes early and were seated right away. The food was as good as expected. It was a complete Thanksging dinner. They did not disappoint us. I would recommend Jimmy's to anyone who wants good food and great atmosphere.
The staff here are all personable, fun, and efficient. I come here when we do trade shows across the street and treat my staff to breakfast before the shows. Always we have great food and are taken care of in a fun and efficient manner. Great coffee too!
Terrific service, very nice staff, and a great location make this place worth a stop. The food choices are mixed between breakfast and lunch/dinner as they serve breakfast all day. Its not a gourmet house, by any means, but just good food prepared correctly and served by a talented team. Well worth the price and the location is perfect to eat before or after a game.
Our waiter, Joe, was awesome. Very attentive. Offered to turn down volume on TV before we even noticed how loud it was just behind us. Very personable. Would love to have him again.
Unfortunately the service that we received at Jimmy’s on First during our visit today was horrible! The waiter was zombie-like! He made a mistake on the order for one of our party members and argued with her about what she ordered! (Even though everyone else at the table clearly heard what she ordered and confirmed he had entered in the wrong item...note he did not write the order down, nor did he repeat it back to us). It then took about 30 minutes for the restaurant to bring out the correct order, and the rest of us had already finished our meals. I dine here fairly regularly, and this experience was so negative that I don’t think I will return for awhile. Horrible!
Concert .. waitress was great and food came in ample time
Always good food, great staff, comfortable seating.
We shared an Eggs Benedict with a side fruit bowl. Our friend had the Olympic Scramble. All the food was delicious, the server was delightful, and we were out of there in time for our event. We would not hesitate to patronize Jimmy's again.
Great food and service.
We enjoyed an excellent lunch with friends during boat show.
Don't expect to get in and out of this restaurant in any reasonable time frame. Slow service, food was even slower to come. Could tell some of our dishes had been sitting under the lights so long the top of the buns were hard. Other items were cold - fish tacos... Not sure why we left a tip.
My server was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu.
Our food was delivered quickly and hot. I had the boneless fried chicken, which is some of the best I’ve ever had. Loved that they gravy came on the side so I controlled the portion.
One of the best clam chowders and creme brulees I've had!
Food was good, waiter was attentive, and the staff was friendly. Enjoyed it very much. THANKS!
Service was sub par, waitress did not know the menu, did not know how to answer any of the questions we had about the food or beverages.
We ordered an appetizer off of the featured sheet, she did not know what it was or how to describe it. We then ordered a Caesar salad to start, did not have much dressing on it if any at all. And all of our food came out at once. The best thing was the chicken, and the Jimmy’s fries. Great way to end the experience was the warm chocolate cake that came out cold, she did describe that well, but the cake did not live up to her description. That was taken off the bill, which was nice, but service was lacking in knowledge and timings, and food was just ok. Usually we aren’t ones to complain, but it was not worth the $ we spent. Good place for hh I assume as this was something the waitress did know about, but she was uninformative and seemed not to care that we did not get seated with the menus or want to get them for us. No manger took the time to come by but the cake off the bill was a nice gesture.
Pre Sounders Playoff match so it was busy. I made reservations ahead of time, glad I did. Though busy, service was quick, waiter responsive, and the food was good. Go SOUNDERS!
No reservation needed on a non-baseball, non-event Thursday night. The bar was packed, with every seat taken. The restaurant, however, was dead.
My service was phenomenal while I waited for my friend to arrive. The server even grabbed my friends orders to have it ready when she got in. The food was great!! We both got different sandwiches and my goodness, the Jimmy’s Sweet Potato fries!!!! More of that please.
I had a spectacular cocktail called the Bloody Bacon Martini, and yes please, may I have another. Zesty and a strip of bacon included.
I will be happy to go back here when I am in SODO. No questions asked.
It was really quiet on this Monday during lunch hour. No Stadium events happening that day. Our waiter was perfect. He was on top of everything for our group of 11 and every dish came out simultaneously and appropriately hot or cold.
After a long day of exhibiting at the Convention Center, Jimmy's is just the right spot.
Another much anticipated post Refuse to Abuse 5k celebratory brunch. The thought of Jimmy's Brioche French Toast has us salivating as we support a worthy cause. Jimmy's never disappoints!
We were there on a non-game day, meaning no soccer, baseball, or football going on at the local stadiums. While you could watch televised sporting events on several TV monitors throughout the restaurant and bar, the sound was appropriate to carry on conversations. I had the fish tacos and crème brûlée for dessert, both were excellent.
So it was a great place to gather for conversation and happy hour. The service was great and the food was, too. Love that it had free valet parking ( only on non-game days) .
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone because of the server we had.
Waitress was rude. Checked on us (party of 9) once. We were celebrating a bday and I was told the bday girl gets a dessert and she received nothing! Won't be going again.
I love this place! It is very conveniently located in the SODO area of Seattle and the hotel (Silver Cloud) in which they are located provide complimentary valet parking which contributes tremendously to the convenience. The food is decent, as well. I would recommend this place!
Great place for a business lunch with coworkers or clients.
We were looking for a good, casual place for early afternoon brunch that was open on Christmas Day. Jimmy's fit the bill perfectly, the eggs benedict my wife and I ordered were excellent, especially the roasted potatoes, and our usually very finicky late teen daughter loved the brioche French Toast and sausages. She loved the cinnamon sugar butter!!
go here as a last resort. very last.
