One Sunday decided to go to Jims for a meal. Had the fish & chips.It was just barely fit to swallow down.The batter was too thick, the batter was so crispy that it was impossible to cut with a knife & the little piece of fish burried inside the batter was about the size of a chicken nugget. Plus the... More

I always say it is hard to ruin breakfast. They did an average job on a Sunday morning. The service was pleasant and fast. If it was on my way, I might try again. The prices were fair.

We enjoyed our first visit here and have been back a few times since the first one. It is a family style place with wholesome food which is generally well prepared. Seafood is the specialty here but the other meals are good and look and taste like "home cooking".

Food quality has definately changed at Jim's. We loved to order the clams and/or the fish and chips. Since it changed owners - I would not recommend you go there. The cooking oil needs to be changed - french fries were not good. They also use Turkey in place of chicken for their hot "chicken" sandwiches and sliced "chicken" sandwiches.... More

We had a family gathering and decided to pick a family restaurant for breakfast. The reviews on this place were generally positive so we decided to give it a try. The menu had a good selection for breakfast. Some of us had the large breakfast which was as we expected. Nothing special about it. Some had the omelet which was... More

My husband and I go to Jim's often. He always orders the donair platter or clams when available.. Love their clams & chips; unfortunately, they are not available during the winter months. However, lots more to chose from. There is one particular waitress who is extremely friendly and attentive. Have never had a bad experience. Wish they had the roast... More

Big portions, fresh good seafood and haddock grilled to perfection. Nothing fancy about the place, family run business with good food variety and very good location. Prices are tight. Lots of oil for the foodies. Get the Jumbo seafood platter and you have it all. Totally worth it!
