Went for lunch today, horrible experience! Found dirty chair when i went to sit down, waitress was there and took credit for the filthiness and asked for me to excuse it. Waitress explained specials, one with blackened redfish with crawfish topping and side of etouffe, sounded good, so ordered that. When it was being set on the table i could smell an excessive fishy smell, like not fresh smell. Also found out that they were out of etouffe and they chose to replace with runny mash potatoes. Total all around fail in every aspect of the visit. Told Manager, went in one ear and out the other. She ran away after we told her.

This is one of the most consistently great restaurants in Houston. The shrimp gumbo is some of the best I have eaten. If you're in the mood for fish - try the pecan crusted trout - sensational! I like the dish with the roasted potatoes & onions. Also great service. Get there early during the lunch hour as they get very busy with all the business people in the area eating there. You won't be dissappointed!

This place is disgusting. The two times I have been there, the bar and the restaurant are dirty. The food is highly overrated, its hard to screw up oysters. The manager Jody, is a dick. He is unhelpful, and only seems to care about putting in his 8 hours. There are 9000 restaurants to choose from in Houston....pass on this one.

I don't eat dinner here. Service is eeeh. What I do like to do is; stop here before I go to Intercontinental Airport and eat grilled oysters at their bar.. They are really good. Their grill is right in front of you and you watch them put oysters in the half shell on the grill and douse them with butter, lemons, garlic and herbs. Damn they're good. the place isn't fancy at all. Wear jeans.

My wife and I had just returned from vacation to IAH and decided to stop for dinner at Jimmy G's. We sat at the bar and shared the grilled oysters which were outstanding. We almost ordered more! My wife had the Crab Maison Salad and I had the Grilled Pecan Trout. The food and service were great! We shall stop here again when on this side of town.

I have been to Jimmy G's for years. I usually dont write reviews but this is one of my favorite places to eat if you are a seafood lover like me. They make the best boil crawfish i have found yet in houston. The grilled oysters are to die for! Over all the menu is exellent no matter what you eat. I always take peoples advice when they write a review and i hope you if you read this one then you will give this a try! I know im glad i did!

Having lived in New Orleans for sometime I tried many seafood places. I had to relocate to Houston due to Hurricane Katrina and tried this place because it was close by. This place has better seafood than the whole of New Orleans. Oyster bar with raw or grilled oysters with crabmeat (better than Drago's), huge shrimp (boiled, grilled and fried), fresh vegetables, courteous staff, large portions for the price. Excellent place, you will not be disappointed.

To eat here when we are passing through Houston. The Pompano (seasonally available) is superb, surpassed only by the blackened Mahi or Amberjack. Excellent wait staff, especially Jeff. An excellent ""early supper"" establishment, with generous portions.
