Jimmy's never disappoints. The service is quick and the food is delicious. Jimmy's is a favorite spot for us. The Happy Hour Menu is the best around!

Took parents to Sunday brunch. They loved that it was quiet & they could talk/ hear everything. Our server was great! The food was decent, hard to screw up scrambled eggs, but the pancakes were dry. Overall, still a good experience but higher priced than other breakfast places nearby. Ambience & atmosphere made it worth it for us.

Jimmy’s can have great food but they have a problem with consistency. Two in our party and we each order a filet mignon cooked to medium. One of us got a steak that was burnt/charred on the outside and cooked to well done. The other of us got a steak that was nicely seared on the outside but basically rare. On the inside. Have had this same problem in the past. Dinner was served in a timely manner but waited for a half hour after dinner to get a small scoop of ice cream for dessert. Keep going back every 3-4 months hoping consistency will improve but it just doesn’t. Unfortunate ...

Happy hour server Stacy, and restaurant server Tracy, were both great! Four of us for both HH and dinner. Happy hour was great. Dinner was "pretty good," but I was truly disappointed with my entree. It was a featured halibut special with prosciutto, and sounded amazing, but with the prosciutto and capers, it was so incredibly salty that the flavor of the halibut was lost. The accompanying sauce and fingerling potatoes did not make up for the salty fish. I ate less than half. Be careful of the seasonal halibut specials, I'd say!

Three out of four had the prime rib special. One looked spectacular , one looked nice and one looked like an uneven wedge. All tasted great but presentation counts. Everything else was great, beverages, salads, deserts all great.

We had a party of 10, we added 5 from the original reservation the same day. I was pleasantly accommodated by the host.

We enjoyed several spectacular appetizer, including crab cakes, calamari, bbq shrimp, and Brussels sprouts.

We were given 3 various options on fresh Halibut as specials, along with a great variety on the menu.

We enjoyed several bottles of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon.

Desserts were incredible as shared!

Jimmy's have always been a good, solid option, but this time they disappointing. The pasta was tasteless, the pork dish was way too salty and the fish was good, but a little bland. It feels like there was a new chef as typically food is always amazing. We will try it again, as I think we were there on an off night. The service was great though!

We haven't been to Jimmy's in years. The food way always good. Tonight we waited over 50 minutes for our dinners. Mine was incorrect. The server said the manager would come by, but never happened. Our bill was not adjusted, nor was there an offer to adjust our bill. Service was not what we expected for entrees over $30.

Every time we go back to Jimmy's I'm reminded why we haven't been there in months. While the food can be good and prices are reasonable, the service is lousy. It took forever to get our food and our server was inattentive.

For our party of six, three entrees came out cold, one was incorrect, another came out much later on an incredible hot plate, and they completely forgot my son's pizza. After several reminders, they finally brought it out and it looked like it had been dropped on the floor. We sent it back and it came out with the cheese barely melted - and by that time the rest of us were done and had fed him from our plates so he was no longer hungry.

They took his pizza off our bill, but they really should've compensated us for more than one meal, considering the disaster it was.

In total, we were there for two hours because of such slow and sloppy service, which is ridiculous.

We had a fantastic steak dinner. I started my dining experience with a chocolate martini which was awesome. We happened to have been there the night that Jimmy had a dining in special 3 course meal for $29.95 so a delicious dessert was included as well.

It was very noisy, crowded. The waiter seemed harried and abrupt, not pleasant service at all.
The food was OK, nothing great. My walleye was fishy tasting. The tortilla soup was tasty.
My husband's prime rib sandwich was fatty, not worth the price.

Many don't think of this place as a steak house, but know their steaks are OUTSTANDING. Great quality and preparation. If not for steaks, try the Halibut--the best. Often some great specials for a good value.

We enjoyed the vibrant bar scene before being seated. We were waited on promptly by people with energy, humor, and kindness. Three out of the 4 of us ordered halibut which was cooked beautifully - so tender, and the 4th ordered the Fred Flintstone steak. Again, grilled to perfection. Salads were fresh, anchovies some of the best, and desert was just enough to cap off the meal.
