The food and atmosphere at this restaurant were outstanding for our third visit, as we couldn't have asked for more. Our waitress made us eat sushi and enjoy complimentary drinks like an oyster, fries, and chips. I also had the best french dip on my beer list, with great bread choices. The waitstaff were friendly and served homemade chips perfectly, making it a well-run establishment. We'll definitely be back next time. Thanks, sweetheart.

We enjoyed a good meal with supple and tasty portions, but we were disappointed by the portion sizes being too large. The restaurant was also close to the harbor (perfect for supper), and the service was friendly and efficient.

We were in town for a wedding and needed somewhere to chill out before checking out via Yelp. It was an amazing place! We arrived at approximately 11:30am, but unfortunately, the food was overflowing with people and we had to wait in line outside the hotel. I'm guessing this is upscale dining because the mimosas are available on Sunday morning and there's no doubt that it'll be popular among locals because everyone enjoys their drinks without any fuss. What can you say?

The staff was accommodating, the food and service were prompt, and the restrooms were clean. I didn't want to leave my wife with a dirty water glass, but the staff gave me reassurance before refilling it even though it may be difficult for some people.

Our family loves the ribs and Happy Hour food, but we also appreciate the excellent food and service. We always order there for special occasions.

Our family has been dining at Jimmy's for years, and we were pleasantly surprised by the food and drinks. The restaurant is situated between being nice and casual, but also offers more to choose from. We enjoyed their homemade dips, deviled eggs, mixed green salad, cucumber wedges with jalapeo cheddar cheese, as well as their hot dogs and pepperoni chips.

Several months ago, we were craving some food and had to make do with our late lunch/early dinner plans. The prices were around $20 per person and it was unsurprising considering the lack of beach access. Our meal included burgers instead of chicken and fries, and I highly recommended spicy chicken for my chicken sandwich because I didn't feel like eating that way. My son went out but still managed to order it on time.

Overall, I am very pleased with the location and the quality of the service provided, as well as the food served. The sandwiches, burgers, chili, or Santa Fe salad are all outstanding options. However, there may be some criticism related to the cost: the average meal is 1.5-2.20 dollars, while more expensive items like pizza, tacos etc. are not very good.

Our salads were excellent even though we had lunch late, thanks to Jeff's attentiveness. We will definitely come back for more delicious meals.

The food at this restaurant is a disappointment, having only been here three times before. The onion rings were too spicy and the onion sticks were not crispy enough.The skinny Margarita was just juice instead of sugar syrup. I also thought the sugar cube was still edible but it had chip residue on top of it. Disappointed!
