Food is ok nothing to write home about. We stop there to enjoy the view from the pier, The service is SLOW! It's really not all that clean but then again it's on the pier.

We've been here several times previously but just decided to walk out after waiting at a table for 15-20 minutes with no service. The place was dead because it's off season, a waiter walked by three different times and wouldn't make eye contact but waiting on one of the maybe 4 other occupied tables. Too bad. We even sat a...

I've been here twice now a year apart both times the service was just ok you just get this since of entitlement from the staff that bugged me. The food was pretty good portions were ok but the views are what make this place and I think they know it.

We ate lunch right out on the pier. The young lady that served us was very efficient and made sure we had all we needed. The food and the beer were good and quick to arrive. There was no shade out on the pier and it was hot! But it was fun to watch the anglers further out on the... More

I will have to say when we got there, without reservations, the waitress moved what tables were available together so our group could sit close and she never complained! The food was good, but some of our order was incorrect. The drinks are good, maybe pricey? The wind was blowing through the restaurant, but I totally expected that since we... More

Not much of a place to eat, but if you want to watch the drunks at the bar, this is your place. Terrible service and the food was no good.

Great food, Service was wonderful by Brandon, views are outstanding. The Blue Cheese dip is over the top and probably one of the best burgers i have ever had!

Jimmy's has gone back to table service...yeah!! The food is good and the service is pleasant. On our last visit (stopped in on our way to the movies across the street) I had the catfish and shrimp poboy. My date had the Crabcake Sandwich, very good. And don't forget to enjoy the view, it's stunning.
