We had the opportunity recently to try a new restaurant in Oak Hill, Jimmy Doodles Sunset Grill. Located adjacent to the Oak Hill Flea and Farmers Market, in the old Camelot Restaurant building, Jimmy Doodles is a nice option for those living in the New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, and Oak Hill.
Jimmy Doodles is open from 7am until 9pm seven days a week. The restaurant features indoor and covered outdoor seating. Dogs are welcome in the outdoor area. During our first visit, there was outdoor entertainment so we selected inside dining but sat outside with our dog during our second visit. Several other diners had their dogs with them so it was a nice atmosphere.
The service was very good our first visit while the second it was obvious our server was still learning. She forgot our appetizer but we were not billed for it. No big deal when you see the size of the portions. She was trying hard and I am sure she is much more comfortable by now. She offset her inexperience with her friendly nature.
The menu is pretty much standard diner fare as would be expected. It is not just short order out
of a frozen pouch or bucket though. The food all appears to be prepared to order. The meals look
fresh and appetizing.
We have not visited for breakfast yet but the menu is loaded with omelets, pancakes, biscuits &
gravy, and combo meals. Fresh orange juice from Oak Hill Country Market is available in
addition to coffee, tea, and other standard drink options.
Lunch and dinner menus include Hoffman hotdogs, ½-pound burgers, a variety of sandwiches,
and French fry baskets that are incredible in size and taste. Be sure to check the daily specials on
the board inside or ask your server. Salad options are also available. A selection of sides
including potato salad, cole slaw, beans, and more is available.
You cannot visit a diner and not try a burger. I opted for the Maytown Burger; a ½-pound patty with onion rings, pepper jack cheese, and bbq sauce. I selected tater tots as my side. This was a wise choice. Kitchen staff cooked the burger to a perfect medium. My wife had the Chili Cheese Tots and it was more than she could finish. Tater tots topped with house made steak and black bean chili and cheddar cheese sauce. Make sure you get extra napkins.
During our second visit, I tried the haddock sandwich special with fries. This sandwich was loaded with delicious fried fish. It was really overflowing and probably would have been two sandwiches at many restaurants. My wife had the Loaded BLT, which had a seemingly never ending pile of bacon.
You might want to try to save some room once you see the ice cream menu featuring Hershey’s
Brand ice cream. Sundaes, banana splits, shakes, malts, and scoops are available. I see they are
offering a new flavor, chocolate raspberry truffle. Sounds good.
Prices are good with breakfast omelets running $5-$8. Burgers are around $10 with fries/tots.
The loaded fry baskets are $10-$13 with most at the lower end of that range. Hot dogs are $4-$5
and sandwiches are around $10. Most drinks are $3.
Good food, service, and pricing. We will certainly be back and I recommend you stop in if you
are in the New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, or Oak Hill area. It is even worth the drive from
northern Brevard County. If you are at the weekend flea market this is a no brainer, just walk
