I was recommended this restaurant by a family friend, and I’m SO GLAD because otherwise I’d have never found it. The food here is amazing, and the staff were all incredibly kind. My boyfriend and I just had the best night here, and it was...More

One of the best dinners I have ever eaten. There’s no menu. Just go with what your waiter recommends. We had dips, calamari, octopus, scallops for starters and then saganaki followed by lamb cutlets and lamb on the spit. It was all fantastic. Big thanks...More

Not the positive experience we had hoped for. Maybe we were there too late in the evening, but they we're not at all accommodating.

Jim’s is an ideal venue for a family function, but beware it is noisy. It’s totally BYO everything. The food is authentic - you can pick your selections from the refrigerated glass cabinets, or my preference is to allow the waiter to suggest items and...More

This place has been around for decades and will be around for decades more if things stay the same. Nothing too modern or flash. The waiters are all competent without being overly involved. The decor is frankly prety bland. The food however is great, simple...More
