Have eaten here lots of times but not much recently. Never busy & service is excellent. Do not order the salmon, it is dry & overcooked, maybe from frozen as it was somewhat stronger than my taste. Their chicken is marinated & always really good.

I will never go back. Food is okay but management/owners treated the staff like crap. Waitress spilled a little cup of salad dressing on the floor and one would have thought she committed murder. The older man in the kitchen screamed and cursed her. She cried. The hours are funky. One night they are open at 8pm and the next... More

I started eating at Penny's 25 years ago when I taught at GTCC, never had a less than an enjoyable experience. Even though I am retired now and Jamestown is a half hour drive, I look forward to eating there now and then still. Their salads and fried flounder are our favorites.

My family has been enjoying meals here for decades. This is a very nice, family-owned, Greek style restaurant specializing in Greek and Italian dishes. My Mom especially likes the Veal Parmesan and I and my wife like the various Greek salads, chef salad, and sandwiches. They are primarily a Lunch - Supper restaurant with breakfast hours only on Saturday. The... More

There is nothing to like about Penny's. I got a take out lasagna for my elderly father, who by know means is finicky. He could not eat it. I tasted it and also found it not edible. I wished I had returned it but I knew that the woman at the cash register would have been of no help.

You must eat here! It is Mom and Pop owned and "Penny" is cooking in the kitchen. The food was absolutely wonderful, tasty and affordable. We had the vegetable platter (3 vegetables, a roll and beverage for $5.99). The fried okra was to die for, as well as the fried squash, baked potatoes, collard greens, mac and cheese, pinto beans,...

I've been a resident of Jamestown since 1971 and despite passing by Penny's Restaurant a million times, I've never stopped to eat there. Like most people, we get conditioned to eat at theme restaurants and fast food joints but tonight I gave Penny's the chance it deserved. My wife and I were actually coming home from the grocery store and... More

Service is EXCELLENT. Was at Penny's Restaurant for a meeting of 20 people with each person ordering their own food. The staff, who was expecting this group, worked together to give us a pleasant experience. It is always nice when the staff acts like they are happy that you came. Regarding the food, well it was okay. Portion size was... More

I discovered this place a few months back, as I work nearby and now I find myself there at least once a week. Despite there being quite a few other good restaurants in the area, this place has a special place in my heart. Lots of choices at a fair price and wonderful staff. I like the seafood there, but...
