We frequently go there for the quality of the food knowing our doggie bag will provide another at home meal.. I love the beef kabob. Excellent fish. Service gracious. An older crowd for the most part but that assures a quieter ambiance...NO blaring music!

This was our first visit to this restaurant, although I have lived in the area for 30 years. I was hardly impressed with this restaurant. It had the look and feel of a gothic mansion inside....dark, dreary, and desperately needing lighter, fresher decor and remodeling. The table we sat at was comfortable, ...however,...within minutes of sitting, we both had a... More

Our group of 5 went there on a weeknight. There was no wait. Our server paced our meal well. We all had a delicious dinner. I had the filet, it was cooked just how I like it and very tender. For dessert we spilt a flourless chocolate cake with the raspberry sauce. It was absolutely the best dessert I have... More

Good basic food. Really dark in there. Soup listed as home made - tased like homestyle from a can. Had a sandwich - wheat bread was ordinary and over toasted. I removed it and ignored it. Not much avacado on the sandwich two very thin slices. Good sized piece of chicken. Cole slaw was good. Fresh baked bread on the... More

The Prime Rib we had this past Saturday evening was if not the best we have ever had it was darn close to the very very best of. We have had Prime rib many places and this was GREAT. Service even though it was night before Mother's Day and the place was very busy was perfect. Patrick our server could... More

Mostly great food but being a semi-regular, there have been an occasional bad day/night. Not often enough to stop us from coming back.

We've dined at Jamesons several times and were expecting the usual good food and service. The service was fine, but the food was a huge disappointment. My tilapia was so overdone it was brown---another family member ordered a pricey steak which was 2/3 fat and gristle. We told the waitress and she apologized---The manager offered us free dessert----Didn't budge on... More

Please let me start this review by letting you know that the part owner, George, is insanely rude and doesn't give a damn about his reputation or costumer service. I'll start at the beginning, and then we'll get back to George. My husband and I brought our 6 month old baby here on Easter Sunday for Lunch. It was our... More
