The shrimp Alfredo was sooo...yummy. I topped it off with peanut butter pie. It's too bad we're just passing through. Is be a regular for sure. Five stars!

We ate here on 2 separate occasions and enjoyed both visits. The hamburgers and steaks are excellent, but the sides are a bit lackluster. The only green vegetable available is green beans that are over-cooked and served in the cooking water. There are even green beans in the tossed salad. The service was excellent and friendly.

Good fresh food and very nice people working, including the owner. We ate a late lunch and the food was the perfect portion and salads were very fresh. Trout was wonderful too!

Most restaurants close early in Bryson City...Jimmy Mac's was only one open when we finally got to eat. We were pleasantly surprised. Yum!! We had the stuffed mushrooms and then steaks cooked perfectly.

We had been here before but three years ago and had bragged to the family how good it was. They were not disappointed! Several had the trout and steak and the steak could almost be cut with a fork. The trout tasted like it was just caught. I came back to work after Labor Day weekend and bragged to everyone... More

Good food. Very crowded, but it was Labor day weekend. Service was good. I had southwest chicken which was tasty and my husband had the chicken parmesan.

The food was good, service friendly, and atmosphere fine. We had burgers that were good. Preferred the baked potato to the large steak fries.

We waited a little over an hour for seating. But the service, albeit slow, was pretty good. My blackened shrimp pasta Alfredo was delicious. His steak would have been better if he'd ordered a smaller size. We were hungry after a long day so anything would have been good. Worth the time.

Description
We are a family owned and operated all American steak and seafood restaurant that specializes in hand pattied beef, buffalo, and elk burgers, hand cut steaks, and fresh seafood. Since we opened in 1978 in Tampa Florida by my father, we have been believers in keeping things fresh, fairly priced, and family friendly.

Hey this is jimmy from jimmy macs, and wanted to say how sorry we are to hear about you not getting a chance to eat with us. During different times this time of year the train drops off 1000 or so people in a town that has seating at restaurants around 300 total for all the restaurants combined. And combine that with the fact that we are blessed enough to have a strong local following and unfortunately only seat 95 people total we can run a pretty big wait sometimes. But if me and my wife didn't work real hard to keep up the quality of food and service we would prob have open seats. But we do take pride in our business and our reputation, so I wanted to ask you to take a second to reconsider your review and ratings. We have worked day and night, seven nights a week to get and keep our score high and we are very confused about a 3 out of 5 because we are to busy for the time you have for dinner. Hopefully you will agree that it's not fair to put our score down to a point that would take us months to get back just because we do what we are suppose to do. And then the next time you guys are in town you can call and ask for me or my wife (grace) and we can get you checked in over the phone and reduce any wait time to almost nothing. I truelly do value every single one of our customers, and take great pride in knowing people choose to spend a special occasion, family dinner, or just a bite to eat with us. And truelly hope I can get a chance to take some pride in myself by seeing y'all enjoy not just a meal, but a night out with us. Thanks in advance for your reconsideration
