Horrible Food - Even Worse Service
By A Yahoo Contributor, 11/19/07
Let's start on a good note. This place is on the 2nd floor of a building and has a nice outside deck. Although, there are others that offer views of Ajax Mountain.
Now, on to the reality that is Jimmy's. Their staff is snotty, ill prepared and poorly trained. Asking for a simple substitution of mac & cheese vs. mashed potatoes turned into high drama for the waiter and the hostess.....not how you want to spend 2 seconds of your vacation.
The food was totally bland and overpriced. It was just not worth the time or money (the mac & cheese wound up being an extra $17).
Fret not fellow travelers, for the place of grace is Jimmy's. No one ever called me a poet so I will just say I am not one, but if you are I would love to hear how you would describe this place call Jimmy's. From top to bottom this place has it. The waiting staff is excellent and provides a great atmosphere for all. If your laid back, they have the most relaxing environment and I hear the upper deck is nice in the summer. If you are there to party Jimmy's has a crucial object called a bar that most alcohol ambitionists would say puts a glaze over the eye. If you are a tight wad, don't worry, they have a childrens menu I think. Everything in this place is astounding and I ask you to heed advice of the many and at least give them a shot to make your dream dining experience come true.
With so many favorite restaurants in Aspen, it is hard to branch out and try new things. Our food calendar opened up a bit this trip with the closing of Mother Lode and La Cocina. I am very glad we tried Jimmy's. The crab cakes were just the way I like them: all crab, no filler. The red and yellow tomato salad was good, but not awesome. The filet was cooked to perfection and the red trout was also outstanding. The vibe in the restaurant was lively, but not too loud. By the time we left at around 10pm, the bar was packed with people, making it a little annoying to push through on the way to the exit. Overall, the experience was great and Jimmy�s has earned a spot on our short list of Aspen favorites.
Jimmys Restaurant is a great place to eat, the food is the best the service is brilliant and the Volcano dessert is the best dessert i have ever had!! Bad point would can be crowded but hey that really isn't bad it shows how popular the place is!!
My husband and I had a great evening at Jimmy's. We were seated outside on their rooftop patio on a gorgeous summer evening without a reservation, which made me very happy right off the bat. Our server was a very pleasant young man who did a great marketing job on different items on the menu. I had a great meatloaf, something I wouldn't normally order at a nice restaurant; my husband had a delicious rotisserie chicken. Their wine list was extensive and had many items by the glass. Their menu is mostly classic American dishes; steaks, chops, seafood and appetizers. The prices are in line with the quality and the Aspen location - not cheap but not outrageous. We enjoyed our meal and would return again.
