I was disappointed with my return to Jamiesons after many years out west. We were crammed into a 2 seater table right next to another table when the restaurant Only had 3 other tables of guests. My first choice (halibut) for an entree was unavailable, not because they ran out but it was no longer offered. We weren't told this... More

The pub looks nice from the outside, but nothing special. Then you walk in and see the unique murals and decorations, including two areas on either side of the door that are like libraries or dens in an old manor. Read about the history of the area, find hidden scenes in the Irish town setting, or even dine at one... More

Took my family of 9 out for a special dinner. We waited in the cozy sitting area until all my brothers and sisters arrived. As our guests arrived our server presented their drinks and we pre-ordered our apps. Once seated at our table, our apps arrived in a timely matter for all to enjoy and our entrees selections were taken.... More

Finally made it to Jamieson's because of the many great reviews, but only when house renos forced us out to eat. We'll be back very soon. The pasta special for 2 was suggested by the server when we both ordered it as an entree. $49 gave us the 2 entrees; plus one starter and 2 deserts, so saved $15. Great... More

This place has wide plank floors and a gorgeous wall painting of an Irish street scape from 100 years ago. There is a waiting area of a fireplace filled with candles, comfy chairs, fascinating local tourism hardcover books and coffee table books. Drinks can be had in this sink-in-and -never-get-up area. The menu is diverse enough to find healthy choices,... More

Used to be one of our go to spots, but menu needs a serious update. Same selections since I can remember. Decent food but a little bored by now. Nice atmosphere and good service.

I visit Dartmouth about every 2 years and ALWAYS make an effort to eat at Jamiesons. Wonderful food. Wonderful atmosphere. A true neighborhood gem not to be missed! And... The owner Chris Smith is a sweet host.

Jamieson's has long been a favourite of ours, with friendly attentive staff and an interesting menu. The decor is warm and inviting. Each evening a delicious seafood special is featured , and it is usually well worth trying. They have recently introduced a 10.00 weekday lunch menu. The owner, Chris Smith is often present, and is most attentive to his... More

I cannot say enough good things about Jamiesons. The food is always delicious, the atmosphere always inviting, the staff always lovely, and the experience always fabulous. We rarely go to any other restaurant because we are so comfortable and always so content at Jamiesons. The menu and atmosphere provide something for everyone, whether it be a first date, casual dinner... More
