We walked in and no one greeted us and we seat ourselves. Finally once the waitress came, I asked her a question about drinks at the bar and she never came back to the table. This resulted in us leaving and going to a bar up the street.

Very good seafood selection of fresh local offerings and served in a traditional "old school" relaxed restaurant environment. Fresh fish offerings change and seasonal soft shell crabs, oysters and others will rotate availability.

Don't let the looks deceive you. The food here is excellent. Started off with some grilled shrimp that was amazing. Had the mahi mahi blackened with the Cajun rice next. Very, very good. Highly recommend this place.

Been visiting this place for years. All my friends love this place & keep re-visiting. This is not a fancy place but you get excellent food. Had oysters & Cajun style fish. Their broiled Shrimp is amazing to peel & eat. Craw fish is nice too. Overall, more for a simple, quiet meal.

I travel extensively and seek out Cajun food. Whenever I come to Houston I go to Jimmy G it is my favorite. How did the crawfish boil last night., my clients and they were some of the best he's ever had and he's from Louisiana. The shrimp and red fish were delicious, great job again Jimmy G.

This is home style southern comfort food upped a notch. In a hurry for lunch? Sit at the bar. Fast friendly service with a great Gumbo.

The grilled oysters were fantastic! The fried seafood platter not so great. The whole catfish was too large and not tasty. The fries were pathetic. The shrimp and oysters were very good. I would go back though to get the grilled oysters.

This is a very good restaurant. Good seafood and the portions were more than I could eat. Great appetizers and main course. It's hard to say enough as we were all very pleased with the food all fresh and well prepared. If there could be any improvements it would be with the beer selection, more craft beer would be nice.

If you're into Cajun and especially Crawfish I highly recommend Jimmy G's. It's definitely not a fancy place and it definitely is on the expensive side. It's also out near the airport. But the food is great! Nice selection of Louisiana beers too! Highly recommend the fried oysters appetizer and the Crawfish Étouffée. Plenty of other seafood choices on the... More
