    I will say that Jimmy’s is my go to. Not only do they have good food, but they have a wonderful staff.  My waitress was so nice and so professional that we gave her a $50 tip. The food was great also. We had a crab cakes with the loaded mashed potatoes,crab meat egg rolls, and the Korean barbecue wings. We also had the passionfruit margaritas,orange crush, and the Rosa drink. Yes Jimmy’s are expensive, but I pay for quality

    I recently visited Jimmy’s World Famous Seafood with my family, drawn in by the hype on social media. Despite the anticipation, our experience fell short of expectations. Arriving promptly for our reservation, we were surprised to find ourselves waiting without any clear indication of when we would be seated. Despite inquiring about the wait time, we were left standing against a wall for over 20 minutes past our reservation time, despite being assured there were no delays. Moreover, the handling of the deposit/ reservation fee was confusing. While the website stated it would be deducted from our bill, we later learned it was automatically refunded upon check-in, a detail that was not clearly communicated. Once seated, our waitress initially seemed attentive, but her attention waned as the meal progressed and the restaurant filled up. Our appetizer arrived suspiciously quickly, and while the Caesar salad was satisfactory, the main courses left much to be desired. Undercooked vegetables, bland crab cakes, and overcooked steak pasta were disappointing, to say the least. Opting to skip dessert due to uncertainty about the quality, we were surprised to find an 18% gratuity charge added to the bill, further diminishing the value of our experience. In conclusion, our $200 could have been better spent elsewhere. Jimmy’s World Famous Seafood failed to live up to its reputation, leaving us with a sense of regret and dissatisfaction.

    We were visiting from out of town and had been to Jimmy's a number of years back. It was very good then and to our relief, it was just as good now. Our server, Mia, was outstanding - friendly and knowledgeable. She did not steer us wrong with any of her recommendations.

    We really enjoyed our visit. Food and service were great. We had raw oysters, crab cakes, shrimp cocktail, and fried shrimp. All delicious! Our server, Danny, took good care of us, striking a good balance between giving us the attention we needed and the space to visit/not feel rushed.

    For such a busy Mother’s Day, service was outstanding and food was as good as always. Crabs were outstanding, crab cakes were moist. Even desserts were better than usual. Perfect dinner for our family of six on this special day. Another winner dinner!!

    The place stands out in the neighborhood. Loved the design inside and out. Food was delicious. My steak was a 4 out of 5 as well as the crab cakes. Had a good selection of alcoholic beverages and supported local breweries. After having a Conrad's CC, I definitely liked Jimmy's more despite less seasoning. Maybe Conrad's shells left a bad impression on their preparation. Will return for some crab action soon.

    We agreed Rane is the best server we have ever had. She made our experience at Jimmy’s perfect. She was attentive, personable and professional. Our drinks were kept refreshed, our delicious meals were timely and hot, and she even packed up our leftovers so they stayed cool and safe for the rest of our trip around Baltimore. She is a gem!

    My first few times at Jimmy's, the food was spectacular this time , it just wasn't the same. My crab cake was luke warm. My side of shrimp was cold. A lettuce wedge should really be not romaine. My greenbeans were dry, cold & not flavorful. We received our soup & salads after the entrees. We were told that portion of the kitchen was behind. One of my companions never received their salad. Our server raved on and on about the bread pudding only for us to be told they don't have any more. We ordered an oreo shake, but the server put in a reeses shake. The person who has a brain injury, so they thought it was oreo because that's what they ordered. The others at the table tasted and said it was peanut buttery tasting. It was too late to have it switched out because we had a prior engagement. We spent well over $250 for 3 people, and this wasn't one of my better experiences as Jimmy's.

    Jimmy’s is always good. Great menu and selections. The menu is incredible with so much to pick from. Every time we go we see something else we need to try the next time we go. Crab cakes are top notch. Seafood boils are so good. Our waitress Carolynn was top notch. Very responsive during our meal. The broiled seafood dish was really good. Nice portions. Definitely a top notch place to dine.

    I enjoyed the food for the most part even though my daughter was sick from the shrimp. Also the amount of food you received for the price was really minimal. One other issue was the tip was added into my bill . Don't like that at all . My tip was not on the menu so you'll shouldn't tell me how much to give . You can suggest but not dictate. Again I really enjoyed the place but for those reasons I will not return.

    We’ve been to Jimmy’s many times but this time was not so good overall. We had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes before being seated. Waitress was not very attentive and we had to ask for extra silverware and follow up on our appetizer (oysters) after waiting another 30 minutes. Had to ask another waitress for condiments. She was was on time with the check though! Reviewing the check, 18% gratuity is automatically added along with a Labor of Love charge of 3%! After seeing the charges that were already added we decided not to leave an additional tip. We would normally leave a nice tip. But since it was already added we didn’t leave anymore. We didn’t like the tip amount to be already decided on our behalf! Overall the service was not good but the food was good. Probably won’t be going back. There are many places besides Jimmy’s to get a good crab cake in Baltimore!

    I got the biscuits and crab gravy. The biscuit were okay, kind of dry for my taste, and I had to ask for more gravy because it wasn't nearly enough. The gray taste okay. The others with me enjoyed there food. I have to admit the fried potatoes were delicious

    Had a reservation for 6:30 pm and it was originally for 4 people. I called ahead to add a 5th person and the hostess said “okay but that’s it, I can’t add any more because we are fully booked” in a pretty assertive tone. The reservation threatens $20 per person if you cancel within 24 hrs or no show so we made sure to be there on time. We showed up and had to wait an additional 15 minutes to be sat and had to stand cramped by the bar. Everyone working looked miserable except for the gentleman who checked us in and our server, Leah. When we ended up being sat, the table was a large round which could sit up to approximately 6-8 people (I guess there would’ve been room for me to add another friend for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner!). Our server was incredibly personable but the fact that they don’t split checks or separate the items by seat to make it easier to add up our bill left us sitting and doing math for about 15 minutes after dinner. The ease of checkout is a pillar of great guest service. I understand where it may seem to be an inconvenience to split checks for your guests, but you could’ve flipped your tables faster if you made it easy on us. Overall the experience was good. We had a great dinner, laughed a lot and tipped well (not that we had a choice as there was an 18% gratuity AND a 3% “labor of love”? gratuity automatically applied). We will definitely be back to Jimmy’s, however, we are hoping that they get their act together and start thinking more about the culture as it applies to the guests which they claim to serve. (p.s. please stop encouraging your servers to blatantly upsell, we are happy to pay for value but guests are human beings who have bills to pay as well. Upselling is tacky, especially if it’s not done carefully.)

    I always have a great time at Jimmy’s. The service is prompt and professional with outstanding customer service. I live in PA and come here at least twice a month. Definitely worth the trip and value for every dollar spent!
