We arrived mid-afternoon on a slow day, received warmly and sat near the window by the lake. We were in soup and sandwich mode, so I ordered the prosciutto and mozarella with a beer and my wife a soup and the steak sandwich. They came in reasonable time and the food quality was quite good if a little less than authentic for an Italian restaurant. The steak sandwich was a steak between 2 pieces of bread .. really a meal in itself. There was no indication of the beverages available on the menu much less pricing, but the waiter recited a list of four draft beers. I selected a pint of Peroni.. and was charged $6 for it, which I consider quite expensive.
The service was satisfactory and the view quite beautiful. The restaurant is long and narrow with the first section (closer to the street) a bar and the back section overlooking the lake. I suspect these tables fill up quickly on busy nights.

My parents have enjoyed going here. And we joined them when visiting this past summer. I thought staff seemed nice. The food though was not at all spectacular, and menu seemed a bit limited.

Ate here a few years ago and meal was excellent. This trip clearly a step back. Food was luke warm at best and not extremely inviting. Staff sat and ate dinner and pretty much left us unattended whole night. Value for money wasn't there either. An unfortunate step back....perhaps a changes of owner?

We have eaten at Jimmy's a few times and have almost adjusted to the weird service character of the staff so we can have some good Italian food.

If you go early (6-ish) you can usually get a table at the window or one of the decks overlooking the lake with great views of the Adirondack Mountains. We especially like the fresh eggplant parmesan and their veal dishes.
