We've been coming since JFAT opened... it has always been our "go-to" spot for family gatherings or a quick meal at the bar. We love it here... but we are noticing that it is getting louder and louder! What is going on? Who are these folks screaming and yelling and being so crazy loud? We watched as two tables that were seated, promptly left because of the noise.
Not sure what you can do, but we now think twice before heading over.... so sad.
Food is great. Good, friendly and attentive service.... but wow.
My husband I are were very disappointed with our experience at Jimmy's. We used to love this spot and it's really changed. The food has changed in presentation and taste. Honestly, it has that "chili's" taste. Kind of like a franchise joint. We ordered the Ahi appetizers like we always do, but the fish is no longer stacked on avocado, its now in a bowl with lots of sauce. Looking around at the rest of the food on other tables, it looks like all of the food has been altered. We mentioned this to our waiter and he told us that they were opening a few other restaurants and want to keep them all the same. I would give it another try, but a bit bummed:( The view is beautiful and the waiters are always very pleasant. Hope things go back they way the used to be!
The sea bass was fantastic. They have a nice wine list and great variety of beers. Appys were darn good too!!
First time to Jimmy's, and first use of Open Table. Was looking for a special spot after picking By dad, Jimmy up a the airport. The Open Table site described the place well and the online reservation was easy to use and followed up with a phone call by Jimmy's staff. Our visit was nice and the food excellent.
Picked based review on Yelp. Good place. Closes at 9 only negative. Wait staff friendly and helpful. Great choices. Price reasonable. Ate an evening meal so cannot comment on lunch or brunch. Would definitely go again. Went during week so not sure how crowded it can get. Noise level moderate, but again went during week. Go for it. You will enjoy it!!
Great spot for American food with a view of the harbor!
Friends of ours recommended we try this place. Food was delicious and well prepared. Service was excellent even thought the place was full. A good eat.
Excellent menue choices, fantastic burgers, inside outside seating. Great place to take out of towners. Water view.
We would go back here. Rib eye was tasty. They met all of wife's demands for modifications (which are extensive). Minor issues. I asked for my brussel sprouts plain and they came out per the menu. The ahi poke app was pretty spicy.
You cannot pick many better places thasn this for good food and a fantastic view. something for everyone is on the menu.
