My son gave me a gift certificate to Jimmy's saying that he and his wife had gone there and thought we would like it.I have no problems with the quality of the food. It was very good but very much over priced for what it was. The food is

I have lived in Greensboro for about 15 years and recently moved to Forsyth County. I can say with certainty, that Jimmy's Oyster Bar & Seafood is better than any seafood place in Greensboro, or Winston-Salem. I have been to Jimmy's maybe

I really want to give Jimmys 4 or even 5 stars because we love the food that much, but the problem is the service. The hosts and hostesses are quite good and polite, and today (02/13/2011) our waitress was friendly, but she completely

Have only been to Jimmy's a couple times with a large group of people. The prices are high and the portions are not very big. The food was good though, as well as the service.

So sad. Wanted this to be good and parts were. After all we went for my dad's birthday dinner. I'm writing an online review for the first time over this sucky experience.

We're not one's to let a fly in our grits spoil our night. That's why I didn't give it one star. It was gross. But the server handled it the way you would want her too and the manager was apologetic, comped the fly plate and gave us a gift certificate. My partner enjoyed the dish almost til the end...until the fly was discovered!!!

My stuffed grouper was delicious and so was the sweet potato. The onion blossom was exactly what you want it to be. Hush puppies-- good. cheddar biscuits--don't think they are as good as I remembered Red Lobster's being, but they are as bad for you as the Onion, so don't eat them! :)

The house dressing was decent, but the salad was just ok--croutons seemed stale.

The service in general needs work. Like, don't hand me my drink. I'm in the middle of a conversation. You can put in on the table. And when there are five people, bring five plates, not four.

In the end was not terrible, but then we found out that while we were eating part of the car was being stripped.

My Dad said he was definitely not going back and we live in another city so we won't be either.

Changed back to one star. Fly and theft override the grouper.

jimmy's is awesome! The service has always been great and the oysters are always steamed to perfection. The raw oysters and steamed muscles are heavenly too... the worst issue i have with the place is i'm always miserable (full) when i leave.

I've been here once. It's alright. The food is fine but nothing to write home about. The prices are high and the service is not very good. The decorations are pretty.

I was very unimpressed with the ambiance. Not sure what i was expecting, but it had the sterile, fakey atmosphere of a TGI Friday's without the clutter. They tried hard to force it to look quaint and failed miserably. Not to mention that it is extremely loud in there. The side salad was your typical "white bread" cafeteria-style one with a few limp, sad pieces of lettuce and a couple slices of mushy tomatoes. The seafood was marginal and the sides were overcooked and bland.

Their She Crab Soup is to die for. Excellent menu choices and options. There is not a bad choice on the menu.
Excellent wine list.
The staff is great. They are not overly intrusive, or scarce to be found. Perfectly attentive.
I make it a point to come here whenever I'm in town which is once, or twice a year.
You will not be disappointed. *************** **************** ***************** ******************** ********************* **************************

I had a chance to visit Jimmies again. I was majorly disappointed. The food was not the same quality that I had come to know and love. The she crab soup was still outstanding but the rest of my dinner was lack luster. It is doubtful that when I return to NC that I will go there again.

My husband and I (and usually a couple of friends) go to Jimmy's on a pretty regular basis. We always sit at the bar and we ALWAYS receive excellent service. We have sampled about half the menu items now and have never been dissappointed....particularly with the seafood. We had oysters on the half shell last Sunday and they were the best we've had this year.....anywhere! New restaurants keep opening in Winston-Salem and we try them all but we always end up coming back to Jimmy's.

Pros: Food, Service, No kids in the bar area

Cons: None so far

Jimmy's Seafood is my fav restaurant. Everything I've ever had there has been excellent (with the exception of dessert). The crab legs are wonderful, usually cooked just right and not left sitting so they break open like they're supposed to. They serve them with an ingenious butter warmer so your butter stays hot. The crab dip appetizer is a must; creamy and very tasty. I like that they're served with toasted pita points. Unlike other seafood places, their steaks are great, too. I'm quite fond of the Marsh, a specialty drink that is blue-green and foamy like a marsh (sans the mosquitoes) and packs a bit of kick, and they have a good beer selection. Garlic mashed potatoes as a side never fails to please the palate. Best of all, Tuesday nights are $8.95/lb. crab leg nights. Yay for Tuesdays! Hope you enjoy!
