Gone is the talking moose, loud mouthed bass and dingy stained plaid carpeting that was Bugaboo Creek. In its place is a comfortable mid range steakhouse with a little bit of everything. Lamb chop special was excellant tasting, a smidge overcooked and plate presentation for all items was lacking. Friends who had salmon and steak tips reported they were excellant,... More

We visited with a large group, with reservation, after the WPI graduation. Staff was very accomodating, setting us up in a good location. Our server was outstanding, and they accepted us bringing our own cake for dessert. They stored it in the kitchen fridge bringing it out with plates and serving knife after dinner. Food was good as usual, but... More

While visiting our son's new house we decided to stop here for lunch. What a great place. The place is a lot bigger than it appears outside. We were seated at a high top booth in the bar area. The waiter was very attentive to us. Both my son and husband ordered burgers. I ordered the sampler appetizer. It had... More

We visited on a slow night and found the service friendly but quite slow. The food was only average at best. I would give it another try before taking them off my list, but not soon.

Reliably very good service and good food. Burgers and Jimmy's favorites are all good. Today I had the special which was a combo eggplant and chicken parm over pasta. Pretty good says this picky italian. The main dining room is quiet, relaxing and has both tables and oversize booths. There is a gas fireplace which is a nice plus. We... More

I ordered the filet mignon and it was so good! This restaurant is a very popular one, judging from the parking lot. I can see why, because the food is good and the service is quick. They also have targeted certain days of the week for hamburger night, prime rib night.......so good! The prices are also very reasonable.....a great find!

We haven't been to Jimmy's in about 4 years and we thought that we would try it again since it had been so long. We sat at the bar at about 5pm on a Saturday. The place was already pretty busy. The bartenders were super attentive and friendly. They were slammed and we still never felt like we were being... More

I've been to Jimmy's several times and I have never been disappointed. On this visit, we sat on the bar side and enjoyed drinks and dinner. The drinks were delicious and had healthy pours! I got a combo dinner with steak tips and ribs, both of which were excellent. The dinner came with coleslaw french fries and a huge piece... More

We found our new go to place. Been here 4 times and food was great each time. The burger and prime rib nights didn't disappoint. Need to try Tuesday taco night. The drinks are good and reasonable. The wait staff very good and attentive. Can't wait to go back

I had the steak tips which were nicely marinated and cooked to perfection. The tips were served with fries which were a bit soggy but well seasoned. I got a side salad with the tips. It was a simple salad with iceberg lettuce and veggies. I washed this down with a 20 oz Bud Light which was served in a... More
