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 all-American comfort food. The interior blends lots of varnished wood with industrial-chic I-beams and garage-style doors, plus there's a beach with a patio fire pit. The menu elevates backyard BBQ favs; the Jimmy burger is the go-to choice with unusual toppings like jalapeño jelly. Otherwise, bourbon-chipotle BBQ baby back ribs, roasted chicken, and a creamy Parmesan pasta are filling choices. 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.
