Jimmy's Famous Seafood Ratings and Reviews

The service was a little slow, but this could have been due to a large party celebrating a birthday at the time. The crab cakes and soft crabs we well done and tasty and my wife tells me that the flounder was good as well. I originally found the restaurant online after researching a photo of a milkshake I saw online. I really had my heart set on this milkshake, but they did not have the ingredients to make it the night I was there; we had to get chocolate cake instead. The overall value is good, very comparable to similar restaurants. I will probably go back at some time

I always have a fabulous time at Jimmy's. it is my number 1 place to eat crabs. The crabs always steamed to perfection. The service is impeccable. My girl, Rini is the gold standard by which all servers should be measured.

Ir was good but nothing that special to remember. My husband's fish was rather dry but the crab balls were really good. It is more a family style restaurant but I can't imagine the noise level if the place is full. The service was quick and friendly.

Jimmy's Seafood was very impressive. Not expecting much when we pulled up the food my wife and I had was both high quality and big portions. The fries are among the best I have had in quiet awhile and the service was very attentive. Crab cakes are the special but the menu has lots of options. For the short drive from Baltimore this is one that is not to be missed.

This wasv my second time going. I will be going again. My server was BRIAN. He great with all his suggestions. If you like calamari it is very good here. They are known for their crab cakes. They are good and portions are great. But for me Jerrys has better . Overall this is a great place for a meal . I am putting this on my list as a definite go-to spot. Can't back to try something different.

The food is always great and the streamed crabs were very tasty. Our server was very nice but new and didn't interact with us like other servers did at the surrounding tables. We had to ask another server to ask her to come to our table for drink refills The restaurant is very loud nothing to buffer the surrounding table conversations.

The food was very enjoyable. The service was impeccable. The young lady that waited on our table remembered that I mentioned that we were there to celebrate my girlfriend birthday. At the end of the course she brought her a coconut cake of her choosing and all the staff sang happy birthday. Simply Delightful!!! Very Sweet.

I travel interstate 95 through Baltimore twice a month and I just found a restaurant that can't be beat . I can't believe I have missed out eating here for four years . The management told me they have been serving their guest for 45 years . I won't go anywhere else again when I travel through Baltimore. The best food I have eaten . Huge crabcakes! To top it off it was the most courteous service . Good food and great service I'll be back .

We have been to Jimmy's many , many times, and have never had a complaint about anything there. However, we were there last night, and the waiter was not very good at his job. He took our orders, but when the food was delivered by another person, he brought out only one person's order of food. Then we trying to find our waiter for several minutes, to no avail. Finally, my wife summoned another waiter over, and told him about the error and he got the situation straightened out. Then the original waiter brought the rest of our order to the table.
I would have expected that our original waiter would have said something to us about how he goofed when he put the order in at the kitchen, and that he was sorry about the mix-up. He said nothing. Unless this was his first day on the job, it is inexcusable.
The food was o.k., but our experience was not !!

If you want to be feel like someone appreciates you and wants you to really enjoy your evening . If you want to have the best crab cake on earth . If you want to be surrounded by a family oriented restaurant and really personal service then you must try this restaurant because I just experienced all of the above and more . I am so happy my friend told me about Jimmys . I will bring my family back every chance I get .

Jimmy's is such a neighborhood favorite and I really want to like it. The food is very hit or miss; my boyfriend loved the crab soup but his crab legs were so over cooked he only ate half, and my oysters were very small and inexpertly shucked, but my scallop entrée was delicious. Combined with the very loud acoustics and extremely uncomfortable chairs, I just don't think we'll go back. But I think it's the kind of place you have to try and decide for yourself, so give it a try!

I don't usually write about my experience at a restaurant but I was so excited about this restaurant I couldn't help myself . I must say I was impressed with they way I was welcomed and taken to my table . The crab cakes were just enormous and had so much crabmeat and no filler . Steak to die for . New York strip that was cooked perfect . On top of all this my waiter was just so professional with out being overbearing . He was there when we needed him . There are very few if any restaurants like Jimmys . We will be back .

Our waiter Justin, was the best. He was very efficient, friendly and personable. Justin would stop back to our table quite often to make sure everything was ok. I would request to sit in his area on my next visit. The food was exceptional and the serving portion was over and above. Everyone, from very professional.

The food was really good but what most impressed me was the service. It's been a very long time since I have experienced a waiter that actually stayed on top of their guest and a welcome and thank you from the management . This type of service makes me want to come back . Great food great service you don't find like they have at Jimmys anywhere else . I can't wait to come back when I am in town . Baltimore you are fortunate to have such a nice restaurant.
Our first visit to Jimmy's. Heard about ...
Our first visit to Jimmy's. Heard about and have driven by, but Restaurant Week" tempted us in.
The reviews we read in advance talked about good food but many indicated lousy service.
That was a real potential put off, but we have it a shot. Service isn't lousy, isn't great either, waitress MIA from time to time but the food arrived and it was good.
Portion sizes were big, but given the prices, I suppose that's good. Restaurant week menu only, and we don't typically order dessert, but we were paying for it ( one price, three courses ) so it was brought - and taken on home. I would have far preferred an ala carte menu- but we were locked in.
The crab cake was ok, jumbo fried shrimp very pedestrian and a bit shy of jumbo, scallops were good. Vegetable came (chunks of squash and zucchini) and is was Luke warm and has bread chunks? Or some other non veg filler. Not
So we had a decent meal with fair service, pushing $100 for two - no alcohol - which was IMHO a bit pricey for what we got.
The main room has very attractive decor but boy was it noisy - again for "upscale" that was a turn off.

I had visiting here once prior. This time it was restaurant week. So we took the family. I loved it again. My husband couldn't stop raving about it. We are already planning our next visit so we took a menu home. There are so many great things on the menu. We have tried a lot of items and they have all been great.

Jimmy's is one of my favorite places to eat in Baltimore-period! I love the friendly staff that gets to know you by name, but never makes you feel bad about being a regular. I began coming for happy hour (which is really awesome), graduated into actual dinner, and then the food truck began coming to my job! The food is always just as great as I remembered for the previous visit. I come to Happy Hour with girlfriends and reserve dinner with my Mom. I also think the celebrity photos are a really nice touch. More people should know about Jimmy's! It is a really great place to just hang out or dress up for a romantic dinner/special occasion!

Noisy environment with poor service. Our waiter took our menus off the table before we could order. We said we need the menu to select our order. As we were taking our first bit of our appetizer our main course was being served not to mention that the server held hot cream if crab soup directly over an eight year old child head a face until I said please move that before an accident happens. Since our main course couldn't be held in the kitchen it was cold once we began to eat it. Everyone didn't have silverware and it took 10 minutes for the server to come back. It was my husband's birthday, and he order the reeces peanut butter cheese cake. It DIDN'T have the toppings on it and the server told him it us the same thing just without a peanut butter cup, she basically told my husband just eat what I gave you, because even after he said this Isn't what I asked for she never changed it out.
