We dropped into Jimbo's before a movie for drinks. The piña coladas were a little syrupy. My husband had the shrimp cocktail and I had the shrimp poppers. Both were ok. Service was friendly. It looked like things were starting to get a little busier...More

We consider ourselves to be foodies. We read a great article about this restaurant in our hotel magazine and couldn't wait to try the Carib-Mexican cuisine. The service was downright surly and the food was average. We ordered a mahi quesadilla which was ok -...More

Jimbo's has become a regular stop for us. Though the initial impression is that of a seafood restaurant it's mostly Tex-Mex. Our bbq rib appetizer was succulent. The crab stuffed grouper with thermadore sauce was divine. The fish and chips on the other hand was...More

Hey there Louirv! Thanks for your review - haven't eaten the fish and chips in quite a while...looks like its time, so thanks for the heads up on that. Next time in, you'll have a meal of your choice on me. All the best! Jimbo

We eat at Jimbo's every year and are rarely disappointed. The food is great and has a Tex Mex feel. The service is also very good.
