Jim's has been a family favorite for decades and we still go there for great quality and portions. Fried pies to die for, and the menu satisfies anyone. A secluded, out of the way hideaway, the selection and preparation is guaranteed to please at prices you can afford. I like the steaks myself, the salads satisfy, the sides are interesting.... More

Located in an old home is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing time with friends. Casual and friendly service with great food is a perfect match. Try anything on the minu, it's all good from seafood to steaks and don't forget the vegetables, I have not had anything bad. It's a favorite place in Arlington, don't miss this one!

Ate here on a Sunday evening. Not too crowded. Food was pretty good, service was great. Save room for a fried pie. They are sprinkled with powdered sugar which is a tasty touch.

This place is awesome! The restaurant has character and the food isn't processed. They have a kids menu as well and it isn't Cysco products. The fried pickles were awesome, and the Southern BLT was original and tasty. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We found a coupon for $9 off a dinner entree, so we thought we would give this place a try. Unfortunately it was a non experience. Can't remember what we ate, our server's name or anything else about the place. Guess it is good for them that we don't recall anything negative - but we likely won't return or recommend... More

The filet Milan is absolutely fabulous! Veggies are always fresh & fried pies are delicious! They serve beer & allow you to bring your own wine. We go here regularly.

Very good home cooking! Old world charm, nothing fancy about it but the food is like something your grandma made and is DELICIOUS! Odd hours - only open for lunch and dinner. Great place!

A change of pace is what I was looking for and what I found here. The food was good fresh and homemade. The price was fair to average not cheap for sure but portions are nice here and service was good not great. Time is not a priority here and not sure if it's staff or prep or both but... More

Hubs and I decided to give this place a try - had fried pickles, which were good. Dinner took quite a while to come, and not sure why, as it wasn't busy. I ordered the catfish, fried with mustard greens and mac and cheese. The catfish was good, mac and cheese good but the mustard greens were SO salty I... More
