Enjoyed their food and priced fairly. We actually arrived only a couple minutes prior to closing unknowingly. The staff was kind and didn't even bat an eye about it. Our apologies and appreciation goes our to them for welcoming us in and serving us like any other customer.

Just had lunch at Jimmy Grill. Great customer service and food fantastic. The hamburger steak with onions and gravy is as good as it gets. Large portions at low prices and nice presentation of food. The chocolate cake is great way to end meal.

Jemmy's is a restaurant that is a favorite with the locals. When they want a good "home cooked" meal it's where they head. Excellent burgers and great salads. You won't leave hungry.

Took my lady on a Valentine weekend getaway and found this place on TripAdvisor. The food was excellent. We visited twice in 4 days. The service was great and everyone was friendly and courteous. We will be back again.
