Jimmy's Famous Seafood Ratings and Reviews

The restaurant decor is really nice. I made a reservation but we arrived early and were seated. There are a lot of menu items so we took awhile to decide what to get. The Cream Of Corn Soup and fried shrimp were very good. It took awhile to get our entrees and when we did, they were room temperature. We could have sent them back to be reheated but since it was seafood we didn't want it to come back rubbery. We let the waitress and manager know and nothing was done about it. So we won't be back.

The place was PACKED! They had stopped taking walk-in. The kitchen got overwhelmed. The food was still fantastic, just very slow and not delivered as it should have. 1/2 the entrees, long wait before the rest. Off night. Will still recommend and return, maybe not on a Saturday night....

We were 10 minutes late for reservations due to traffic so they would not honor it. We had to sit in bar area which very loud and not a romantic environment. Our seafood was over cooked and steaks under cooked. Servers didn't care much!! Will not be returning!

This place doesn't care about customer service because they rudely turned is away because we arrived early for our reservation. The place was half empty and they refused to accommodate us. It was obvious they didn't want our business and we were more than happy to take our business to Timbuktu. Which by the has better crab cakes and outstanding customer service. A big thumbs down to Jerry Seafood

We drove from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to try Jimmy's. We arrived around 4:00 pm and there empty parking spots and empty tables. We were asked if we had a reservation and replied no. We were informed that they were only seating reservations and given take out as an option. I explained that take out was not an option because of the drive. We were again told there were no tables. We walked out the door and I stopped to check OpenTable on my phone. I found Jimmy's and was able to make a 4:15 reservation. We were promptly seated then. I don't understand why the young lady did not seat us and just make that time slot unavailable. Once seated we waited 15 mintues without a server stopping at our table. We were about to leave when the manager (I assume he was management) noticed we had not been helped. Within seconds we had a server (Alex) at our table. From that point the service was exceptional and the food was excellent. I had the Jimmy's oysters and my wife had the crab cakes. I will definitely make the 1.5 hour drive again.

Was in Baltimore with my daughter and had heard great things about Jimmy's. Unfortunately we must have picked the wrong day to go. We had an 8:00 reservation and were surprised at how packed the place still was. Once seated we waited about 15 minutes before being greeted. We finally got our one and only serving of drinks 25 minutes in. We waited another hour for our dinner. My steak was excellent and Chesapeake style was amazing! I wish the service had been better.

The food was amazing! The staff was pretty friendly as well. The only thing I did not like was that an 18% tip was automatically added to the bill (for a party of four) and once I paid they waiter was expecting another tip.

The manager Kenny was very rude and condescending when I asked for a new steak. My steak was burnt when I asked for it well done. After I informed him I was 9 months pregnant and would not eat undercooked meat, he said oh well I should have ordered it medium well. He refuses to rectify the situation and said I could get another steak but I would have to pay for both. I will never return to this restaurant.

Everything was excellent. Only negative was we felt rushed by our server. Brought the bill before we were ready to leave (ended up ordering more drinks anyways) and he tried taking our dessert twice before we were finished.

Great food. Good service. They expedite off the line which has been a dying staple in the restaurant industry. Goes a long way to hot n fresh seafood. Applaud the presence of owners and there attention to the customer.

Such a great place. My husband and I went there for resturant week - the portions were so big and the food was excellent. They have such a great variety within their menu and the crabcakes were amazing. We really enjoyed it and will definitely be coming back for more!!

The starters, Greek Salad and half & half Maryland crab soup were outstanding. Salad big enough for two (the waiter was nice enough to bring an extra plate) and the soup was absolutely some of the best anyone at our table ever had. My wife had the soft-crab po boy. It had three crabs on it. Amazing. My shrimp salad and crab cake wrap was quit good, but after I saw my wife's sandwich, I wish had ordered that. The couple we went with said they will be back soon. They live a lot closer than we do.

Went to Jimmy's for a business lunch/dinner after the holidays. Jimmy's was recommended by a co-worker but I had never been there. The service was wonderful and the food was even better. I had the crab cake, which was full of crab meat. Everyone in our group (5) enjoyed the food!

Got seated right away. Food was delicious. Our waitress was nice and always paid attention to our needs. It was our first time and we tried it for Restaurant week and even thought it was packad, we felt like the only people there because of the excellent service. Please try the cheesecake creme brulee.

We can't say enough about our recent experience. Not only were the signature crab cakes the best we have ever had, the service and entire experience was second to none. Thank you to our wonderful waitress who introduced our eleven year old son to the general manager so our son could ask questions about the food business. The GM was so inspiring our son was star struck. This was a great meal, but even more important to us, we left feeling special. Thank you!

We've been here several times and the food is always great. They done some renovations so the interior dinning area looks upbeat and up-to-date, not that it was horrible before. There is a upstairs that's more of a night club atmosphere and the lower level has a small bar, dine dining area, and more causal dinning area to the rear that seems to be reserved for those who love to indulge in crabs. Overall this is a nice restaurant, the hostess could be a little more friendly, she just drops the menu at the table and takes off. Of course the waiters/waitresses make up for her lack of character. The owner/manager walks around greeting guest most times we've been there. The only down fall is they have a 'dress code" which was unbeknown to use because we've been several times prior and my husband wore a hoody, but the last couple of times we've attempted to dine here we got turned around for a zip up hoodies and flat sneakers. Of course this time we were prepared with no hoodie. Only to find that there were some other guest that didn't have on the proper attire for the fine dining area. So, its really a hit or miss depending on how crowded they are. All in all this is a nice, reasonably priced, delicious place to eat. I recommend the 8oz filet, calamari, mac n cheese, and stuffed shrimp...all great options.

This experience at Jimmy's was very surprising because I've only had good experiences there. We were seated and two other parties that arrived after us received their food before us. The server brought us water and never came back to the table. He looked at us but never came back to let us know the food was coming so after waiting over forty minutes we left. The manager wanted us to stay as the food was on the way but we declined. This could have been avoided had the server provided better customer service and informed us of the delay.
