Jimmy's Famous Seafood
I have to say that Baltimore offers the best selection of seafood restaurants. These established restaurants have been a mainstay in Baltimore for quite sometime and I have appreciated their freshness in everyway.
I have expanded my take on reviewing of restaurants that now encompass Baltimore. Sorry Harford County but Baltimore is my new focus.
At my friend's advice I went to visit Jimmy's Famous Seafood in Baltimore. As many know I'm a seafood addict and the only way to eat seafood must be FRESH.
Sometime ago I had gone to G & M Seafood and the test of seafood freshness I ordered raw little neck clams on the half shell. Well, the shucked clam was done cleanly with no shell fragments, clean and fresh and to top it off the clams were brinely. Excellent.
Going to Jimmy's Seafood, was another great restaurant and I ordered the top neck clams, a bigger clam on the half shell. They were deliciously fresh, cleanly shucked and so fresh and this was on a weekday. The other test was to order the Cream of Crab soup and to my amazement, I ordered a bowl. Now, some restaurants offer a cup of bowl but usually the bowl is wider and more shallow but the image of getting more is not really there. At Jimmy's, I ordered the bowl and boy, the quantity of soup was well worth it. I could have had it as a meal in itself. It wasn't too think, just perfect. This is their way and their way is delicious. Chunks of crabmeat in every spoonful.
It was a wonderful experience. Now, I went against my attitude towards ordering fried shrimp but I wanted to try it. The fried shrimp I know is pre-frozen and dep fried but the French fries were made on premises with a nice slight batter, very tasty.
I'm looking forward to going back and try their dinner menu.
My rating of this restaurant based on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being excellent, I give this restaurant a "5". I highly recommend this place.
For weekday, I was very impressed with service, freshness of food and great value for the money.
