So sorry Jimmy is closed. It was a every Sunday lunch after Church . Meals were very good and reasonable priced. The best gumbo I have ever eaten.

Jimmy's is one of our favorite places. Meals at night are very different from Sunday lunch which is served family style. The seafood gumbo is always excellent and bread pudding for dessert is the finishing touch. The service and atmosphere is hard to beat!

Driving through town on a trip and looking for a place that was not a change. Jimmy's was a very nice surprise - from the outside we did not know what to expect but once you walk in you are pleasantly surprised. Nice people and...More

If you want larger portions, go somewhere else. Their food hits the spot and you leave feeling refreshed, not bloated and heavy. Service and food was great from the bread (BTW Jimmy's people, try Kerrygold butter instead of Land o Lakes- amazingly better!) to the...More

Had the lunch at Jimmy's with a group. I felt the portions skimpy ( 6 small)and my shrimp was a little tough. Seasoning was less than I expected as I had heard raves about the food. Salad was crisp and the fried green tomatoes delicious....More
