Good over stuffed shrimp Poboy! The shrimp were large and cooked perfectly. It can with normally dressed, but with american cheese, which I would have requested to leave off if I'd known. Will definitely go back

So in what might seem like a seedy waterfront seafood market, is authentic and worthy of a visit in D.C. as any. Jimmy's is know for desserts too, but I'm always too full to try them. An $11.95 Oyster (Fried) Platter includes a heaping mess...More
