Since 1974, Jimmy's has exhibited a commitment to excellence in the restaurant industry second to none. Although made famous for our award-winning seafood and steamed hard-shell crabs, our menu also includes various tastes from all over the world, such as grilled lamb chops, a monstrous, savory prime rib, and barbecued baby back ribs. We have two seating areas - a casual, fun lounge and a beautiful dining room which is divided for those seeking to crack open some hot steamed crabs and those seeking intimacy. Seafood is flown in daily to ensure unrivaled freshness and to allow for new specials every evening! If you do not see reservation availability, please call us at 410-633-4040.

    Consistently great food and service. One of my favorite spots. The ambiance is a bit lacking in the main dining are (feels a bit like a bus station), so I don't think I'd recommend for a romantic evening, but definitely dinner with friends.

    We visited Jimmy's on a Wednesday night to celebrate my son's birthday. He had been asking to go there so we did and Jimmy's didn't disappoint! Dominick was our server and he did a great job! We got the seafood combination which didn't look that big but I couldn't finish my meal and it was very good! We tried the egg rolls which were delicious! Two people got the cream of crab soup and the other got the cream of crab mixed with crab soup and they both raved about their soup! Jimmy's isn't cheap but it is good!

    The food is the bread and butter, but the service was over the top. Our waiter, Jack, took us through all the Sunday menus, and pointed us in the right direction. He was always smiling and told us how hard everyone behind the scenes makes this place such an iconic place to visit. I wish we lived closer.

    We met for a business meal as well as a recommendation while we were in town for work. Our drinks came immediately but our server didn’t come back for over 45 mins. We saw another server handling a table of 4, 8, and 12, which received their food & drinks before us and we arrived before them as a party of 3. After a long day of training, we wanted a nice cold drink and some good food and we all were dissatisfied. Unfortunately, we will not return due to that.

    The food is fantastic, the service was amazing. Make sure you read your receipt!!! They added a 3% Labor of Love charge to cover health benefits to their employees. I don't think a restaurant should should nickel and dime a customer like that.

    Our waiter Yianni was very good and attentive enough without being overbearing. The food was good and with inflation comes higher prices. It was loud but people were out celebrating and having a good time. See ya next time I'm back in town. Really enjoyed the crab cakes.

    Crabby Waffles are awesome. Waffles themselves are a bit sweet but when combined with the crab and/or potatoes, they are absolutely magical. (No syrup needed). McKenzie went above and beyond!!!!!
