My husband and I were walking along Main Street in Lake Placid - checking out posted restaurant menus. Jimmy's 21 caught our attention and we decided to go there for dinner. It is not an overly busy time of year (April 20th) so the restaurant was not busy. We had a table overlooking Mirror Lake which was really nice. As... More

Nice restaurant, good food and service was very good. The setting was very nice especially on a cold winter day visiting the Lake Placid area. It's a restaurant you would expect to visit on a stay in Lake Placid.

I had the seafood neopolitan and my husband veal parmesan. Mine was a perfect portion for me and I was able to get it with gluten free pasta which was a nice surprise. The waiter was very attentive - we were in a party of 12 people. The food was very good and reminiscent of our trip to Italy.

The portions are unbelievably small! The menu has a nice selection and the pasta is homemade. I ordered the lasagna which was mostly sauce and 2 small pieces of pasta. The two bites it took me to eat it was delicious though. We had a party of 6 Adults and 5 kids. The kids pasta portion (which I assume was... More

This restaurant is one of the oldest, longest running family owned restaurants in town. Their food is the best by far in town, service is good and reasonably priced. Visiting Lake Placid and not stopping by Jimmy's 21 is like going to Disney World and not meeting Mickey Mouse. 10/10

Every time, a great dining experience. Italian cuisine at its best. Walking distance from most hotels. Every time we visit Placid we dine at Jimmy's.

This restaurant has some nice Italian dishes on the menu. Plates like chicken parm and eggplant parm. The food was good but not excellent. That is why I give it an avg rating. The views of the Mirror Lake are outstanding and the restaurant was very busy.
