I saw some nice reviews, but then couldn't find this place. It is attached or part of the old hotel building across the driveway from the new hotels and the wharf complex. Once inside, it is certainly not fancy, but their bartender was very nice,...More

Was staying at a nearby hotel and wanted a nice quiet dinner. Jenny's fit the bill perfectly. Non-pretentious little Chinese restaurant adjacent to the new trendy Wharf area. Service was friendly and food was great.

We made a point to go here because we heard they were closing this location due to the upcoming second phase of Wharf renovations. Jenny's did not disappoint. Food was great, service was also, and food came out fast!

Jenny's was right around the corner from our hotel. 2 minute walk. Nice sized place with a warm welcome. Plenty of people eating there which is always a good sign. We had jumbo shrimp, chicken wings (boneless) and chicken fried rice to eat. House red....More

My wife and I were looking for a place that wasn't too crowded where we could get a reasonably priced meal and a few drinks. Jenny's worked perfectly. We sat at the bar and ordered some happy hour drinks (the selection is somewhat limited, but...More

Surprising little joint next to some offices in a construction area by the Wharf. Parking is difficult, you can pay $16 for a spot and the street is always full. Great food, great quick service by happy but barely-English speaking staff. Steamed veggie dumplings stuffed...More
