We needed some place we could get something to eat and get in and out of. They were open and did not have a line. The food is good but, I would not suggest it if high quality food is your driving force. It is good and they have a big enough selection you should find something you like. My... More

Looking for a Great Bar & Grill? Look no further than JIMMY'S. Left turn off Exit 1/294 South; on the drive into small town of New Buffalo, you'll find Jimmy's on the right. Opened around Noon, you'll enjoy the "best and strongest" drinks in town! Excellent food and reasonably priced makes it a must stop! Excellent ambiance and tons of... More

This place changed owners over a year ago and I didn't think it was possible to be any worse but...Tada! We consistently have stopped in hoping for better service and food. Granted we sit at the bar so perhaps the wait staff is stellar but the bartender fell flat. We always order on tap and it's either flat, warm or... More

We ended up at Jimmy's serendipitously - the place we had planned to go downtown was closed due to a power outage. It was a cold, snowy night. Road conditions meant we couldn't go far. And on the way back to our hotel, we passed Jimmy's. What a find! We walked in and headed right for the gas fireplace in... More

I had heard they have a rib special, but forgot what day it was. Their website does not list any specials, but we actually guessed correctly this time. Wednesday night is a full slab rib special. Ribs were very good, served with either mashed potatoes or fries. We opted for the addition of a chopped wedge salad to split before... More

The service was questionable at best. Overpriced food far from the center of town. We ordered dinner on a Friday night and the place was no where close to full! On a FRIDAY night! Our orders were wrong as the waitress was busy paying attention to someone else! Way too pricey for that type of service. This really explains why... More

Stopped here for lunch. Never had been here before. Decent menu that included fish tacos, which were very good. Usually you can not fond a decent fish taco in Michigan. Hubby had Italian beef sandwich. Onion petals with sauce were good. Fries are thin cut which I don't prefer, however these tasted substantial. Mixed drink was weak. They do offer... More

While the manager did everything he could to acknowledge our disappointment it was not enough. All of the staff were "beginners" and there was a lot of confusion coming out of the kitchen, My grilled ham and cheese was grilled just enough to make the bread soggy. Sue's sauteed perch was fried and was fishy. The fried pickles were the... More

My family have stopped st Jimmy's the last four years after our annual visit to the Warren Dunes. Food and service were always good to great. Today's visit was absolutely horrific. My family (4 people) were one of three parties in the restaurant for dinner. There were at least four waitresses working, and apparently we drew the short straw. It... More
