Fodor's Review

Tucked bay-side between Harbor and Shelter islands, Jimmy's (JFAT for short) draws hungry boaters and sea-lovers with its marina views and satisfying all-American comfort food. A standout in the wave of recent gastropubs, it blends lots of varnished wood with industrial-chic I-beams and garage-style doors. There’s even a nod to the beach with a patio fire pit. The menu elevates backyard BBQ favs; the Jimmy burger is typical with unusual toppings like pimento cheese, applewood smoked bacon, and jalapeño jelly. Bottles of the company’s zesty chipotle ketchup now can be purchased to take home. Evening happy hours around the bar can be loud, regardless of where you’re seated.
