Fodor's Review

Jimmy's is a standout in the wave of recent gastropubs, and while the food is the main draw here, the decor—industrial meets Americana—has an appealing straightforwardness, too. Head through the garage-style doors for a patio seat with a water view or opt for a cozy booth. The menu features elevated takes on backyard BBQ that include the Jimmy, a half-pound burger topped with pimento cheese, applewood smoked bacon, and jalapeño jelly. The buttermilk fried chicken
