We found this place quite by accident. It had good atmosphere for a business meeting. The waitress suggested the Grilled Oysters. They were great. Blackened Catfish was also excellent. The crawfish were average at best. Overall a great place to eat with above average food and a few excellent choices.
Ate here while staying nearby at the Marriott North. The service was really very good and our waiter was fun and attentive.
I had a good catfish meal. Pretty hot and spicy, but that's what you should expect at a place like this. I really liked that and the meal was very value priced as well. I would recommend this to anyone in the area.
The path from the airport to Jimmy G's took a bit to figure out but the drive is well worth it. The menu and fresh offerings were numerous. Everything was fresh, tasted incredible, and the portions were large. If you near the airport, make a trip to Jimmy G's.
the crawfish bisque is spectacular, the gumbo is very good, the cajun shishkabob is excellent too, all the food we tried was worth the visit. Went there the night before we went to Puerto Vallarta for vacation, we liked it so well we decided to go there on the return trip.....the only weak point was the wait for service, especially on the return trip, but we will go back 'cause the food was exceptional.
My brother and I ate here a couple of times during the labor day weekend 2013. The most memorable meal was grilled shrimp, with mussels for an appetizer. The shrimp were large and juicy, and served with lemon butter. When we ran short of lemon butter, the waitress brought us more.
I am not a big fan of mussels, as they usually seem to be a plate of shells with tiny bits of meat in there somewhere. These mussels were grilled, with a slightly smoky flavor, and were fairly large. Very tasty.
The wait staff were attentive, and the ambiance in funky. I recommend this restaurant.
Stayed at the Hyatt Place and walked 100 yards to this Oyster Bar based on recommendation of my transfer driver. Sat down at the Oyster bar and was given great advice from the manager about their food. Grilled oysters is their house special. I had the grilled Oysters, steamed shrimp and chicken/sausage gumbo. The steamed shrimp was just good but the oysters and gumbo were the best I have ever eaten. Went back the next night and got the butterflied grilled shrimp in place of the steamed shrimp (and the grileld oysters and gumbl again) and they were also the best shrimp I have ever eaten. There seasoning is world class. It was right next to my hotel but would have been well worth driving an hour for. Do not miss this place if you get close.
We ate here every night on business because well...we did some happy hour discussions and required a restaurant within walking distance. The food was delicious (Try the Boudin Balls). This place has some high dollar food but the service and value is phenomenal. Try It!
If you're looking for a New Orleans style grilled oyster then head to Jimmy G's. Sit at the bar, have an cold beer, and enjoy watching them grill oysters and boil crawfish. The oysters are shucked right in front of you so you know they are fresh. Don't forget to ask for the garlic bread to help soak up all the wonderful oyster liquid.
The location is easier to get to now that road construction was completed on the service road in front of the restaurant.
this was great! not a bad price as it was the day's special. service was fantastic and the staff was great.
GREAT ATMOSPHERE! FUN, easy going GREAT food & Service.
