Yes, my wife and I ate at this establishment on two separate occasions within a three day period. Not only was it convenient (a very short walk across the parking lot from our hotel - The Country Inn and Suites), but it was a great value... the prices were very reasonable and the portions were very generous, and it was...

We went on a Monday for the steak and lobster special. It was fantastic. Soup or salad, steak, lobster, and potato. everything was cooked perfectly and our server was very friendly. We split the tiramisu for dessert. Delicious and big enough to split. It was an anniversary celebration and can't wait to return

The chicken parm was a bit over cooked and the pasta sauce was spicy hot otherwise devoid of flavor. The meal came with either salad or soup. One of the soup choices was french onion soup, but the...

I've been going to Jimmy's Charhouse for several years and it always has consistently really good food. It's always a little busy in the dining room but not annoying most of the time. The variety of food they had pleases everyone and everyone in our party seemd to be happy with their entree. I always prefer the items from the... More

I ordered the pork chops and the grill master nailed it! Well done. Honey had a salad with grilled salmon, she liked it, the seasoning could have been better.

Since we were looking for a place for a special evening, we decided to try this one for the first time. It was a stormy night and we went relatively early (5pm). The furnishings and decor are all dark, dark wood tables, and not much lighting. Not many people, and a table in the center had to be moved because... More

I was staying next door at the Country Inn and Suites (you get a 10% discount) and came over because I was starving and tired of driving. Cool atmosphere and lots of energy. Waiter was nice and brought my wine and water quickly. Dinner salad was great. Ordered the pork chops.....it was between that and the Grecian chicken.....the chops were... More

Menu varied, tried the ribs, kind of dry for being a featured menu item. Server very pleasant & attentive. Open dining area means a noisy dining experience, hard to carry on a conversation with the people sitting across from you. Would like to think a restaurant serving a level of food a step above a pub style menu, would mean... More

When we ate there last night my husband and I both ordered dinners in which included salad or soup. We both chose the French onion soup with our meals. We received the bill and found out they charge each $3.00 for cheese on your french onion soup....what the hell don't they normally have melted cheeses on top of French onion... More
