Jemmy's is a restaurant that is a favorite with the locals. When they want a good "home cooked" meal it's where they head. Excellent burgers and great salads. You won't leave hungry.

Took my lady on a Valentine weekend getaway and found this place on TripAdvisor. The food was excellent. We visited twice in 4 days. The service was great and everyone was friendly and courteous. We will be back again.
