the original vision


After building San Diego’s iconic Point Loma Marina and The Promenade at Point Loma, patriarch John Grimstad envisioned a “great bar with great food” where locals and out-of-towners could gather for a good time and overlook the docks. With the help of the Grimstad family’s friends and partners, The Hatch Group, the idea of Jimmy’s was realized, and after the success of the first restaurant, eventually grew to five locations across Southern California.
