Jimmy's on the James- Lynchburg, VA
When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by the owner, Jimmy, who shook our hands and spoke with us for a minute or two before our waiter, Bob, showed us to our table. Because it was 10 O'clock on a Thursday night shortly after school had started back, we were the only patrons that late into evening. Alone in the flickering light of electric candles, we were treated to the sound of Jimmy crooning while tickling the ivories. With the sounds of Sinatra in our ears, and frames of the Marx brothers on the wall, the atmosphere transported us to a bygone era, making us feel as if we were sitting in Rick's Café Américain.
With a friendly, attentive staff, delicious food, and a wonderful atmosphere that harkens back to the speakeasies of the 1940s, Jimmy's on the James is an absolute delight that's perfect for a nice night out with friends, or a romantic dinner for two.
