We’ve been coming to this restaurant for years. All the dishes are great. The fried clams are delicious, the clam chowder is excellent , as well as their famous lobster roll. The only downside is there is usually a wait, but it’s worth it.

Jimmies has the casual homey feel of a diner along with the moderate prices and the food is very good!! The seafood is fresh and cooked perfectly, providing an all around great experience!

Horrible, rude waitress!! She brought wrong drinks, bread came 15 minutes after butter, fish was not fully cooked and tarter sauce came 10 minutes after fish. Waitress had to be reminded over and over. Restaurant was only half full yet service was slow.

What the hell happened to this place? We were there about a year ago and the food was still pretty good, although not as good as when we first started going to Jimmies. We have been going to Jimmies for about 40 years and it...More

I bet the owner doesn't eat here. This place is gross and the wait staff is overworked. The linguini was not cooked right. The white sauce was bland............

This is the worst place to bring your friends or family. They just want quick money. We haven't even finish our meal and the waitress already gave us our bill. There's nothing special about their food either. Their toilet is filthy too. Don't waste your...More
