Food was awful. Grilled trout and fried catfish. No flavor. Catfish was mushy and muddy tasting. Husband had fried grouper and shrimp. No flavor. Service was not great. Server was friendly but reaked of sweat. Not what I want to smell while trying to eat a meal. Salad had one grape tomato cut in half and the rest was lettuce and croutons. Total disappointment! Will never go back.

Terrible!!! Catfish was raw in the middle. The green beans had been around for a few days too many. When we asked for bread, the server looked at us like we had two heads. Would never go back there again. Don't waste your money.

Waited forever for our food. Server was not attentive. Asked several times for a refill that never came as well as an additional butter for baked potato. Steak was tender but had no seasoning. Sides were from a can and very bland. This was at 7ish on a week night. Also there were 5 toddlers in the dining room crying. Wished servers had brought them something to nibble on while waiting, like applesauce or crackers, which were offered on the menu.

Husband and I went here on July 5th (Saturday night) around 6 pm. It wasn't busy at all. We were seated and asked right away what we wanted. Said we need time to look at the menu so she walked away. Took forever for her to come back. The waitresses all dressed like hookers. Hubby got a steak which he said was bland tasting. I got the Grilled Grouper and it was rubbery tasting. The service was horrible the food was bad and the best part of all is WHEN WE WERE WAITING FOR OUR CHANGE (bill was $47 we gave her $100) THE HOSTESS CAME OVER AND SAID YOU GUYS ARE LEAVING RIGHT? I was pi@#*d so I said yes we are leaving just as soon as we get our change. This place is not worth the time or money. Do go around the corner to the Everett Diner it is the bomb but they are only open for breakfast and lunch.

My mom , who lives in Bryson City, took me to jimmy Macs for lunch today, i ordered the Minnesota fats burger, and added swiss cheese and bacon, and this was one of the best burgers i have ever had, cooked perfectly, seasoned perfectly, even the steak fries were cooked perfectly. staff was excellent, very reasonably priced. going back this weekend for sure.

Came all the way from Maryland to visit family, called before we came and asked them if they would be opened on Xmas Eve told me yes, so I made my reservations. Night before was walking downtown told Jimmy himself we would see him the next evening still said nothing about being closed. Got there at 7:15 time of our reservation and guess what they were closed. No Note, No Nothing had to find somewhere else to go. We were very disappointed.

Bad place. The owner has no clue o custmer service. Do not! go here. He was given this business by his family and has NO CLUE! Go some where else.

Although I've only been to this restaurant in Bryson City once, I'm sort of biased in favor of it. Jimmy Mac originally owned a bar/restaurant in Tampa, FL where I grew up. My wife and I used to love going there as high school kids, so we were delighted when we discovered that Jimmy Mac had opened up a new restaurant in Bryson City (my parents have a house nearby).

Every time I go, I always get a cheeseburger and it is always great! I've been to Ray's Hellburger in Arglinton, Old Ebbitt in DC, had the Kobe beef sliders at Barclay Prime in Philly, and had a burger at Bar Rouge (also in Philly). Jimmy Mac's burgers stand up there with the best of them.

Food not very good and can never find anything worth eating on the menu. Service is okay sometimes when it 's slow but is terrible when it's busy. The problem is that there are not very many places to eat in Bryson City so we end up here when we really would rather go somewhere else. I believe if this restaurant were in a large city, it would have FAILED a long time ago. I feel the owners could care less about it's customers and whether they do a good job or not.

YOu will love it. Everything we have eaten there was great!!! Cheese sticks are homemade, steaks should be ordered blackened. Best quality of beef I have had in a long time and I love steaks. Fried Shrimp were out of this world. Best Ones other than my mother in laws which are my favorite. I would highly reccoment this to anyone. Me and my husband visit this area at least once amonth during rafting season. We would come more but we live 8 hours away and have to work. We always eat here at leat two or three times while we are in town. Service was great too. IF you go early you can get lunch portions before 5:30 which are plenty filling and even better price than you would get for dinner. Prices are great especially with the quality of food you get. I am a very picky eater and I promise you will not be disappointed.
