We went out for dinner without making previouse plans. I had steak but everyone else had hamburgers. The portions were large everyone took home half of their hamburger. It has very family friendly dinning room and a comfortable bar with ESPN on the TVs. I would go back especially since everyone was happy with their meal.

Been eating great steaks here for twenty plus years. You'd have to spend a heckuva lot more to get more.

A polar opposite of our last great visit, last night's meal was pretty bad. Our server spoke with such a heavy accent and spoke so quickly that I could not understand her. The soup was chicken rice and was similar to what you would get at a greek diner - not homemade like the last time we had soup there.... More

Visited for a weeknight dinner while in town. The restaurant had a decent crowd for the night and I shortly found out why. Service was prompt and attentive and the food was worth the price which is very reasonable. I would come back again.

We were treated very well at Jameson's Char House. It was a great experience especially after having a streak of so-so meals at some other well respected "steakhouses" in other parts of the country. We met with out of town family a Jameson's, and the staff was so nice to make our stay and meal easy. The reservation was at... More

The server was fantastic, and took very good care of us without being a pest. The soup was delicious and homemade. The salad was fresh with excellent blue cheese dressing. The halibut was so delicious, and perfectly cooked. We will go back again and again.

This is a well established favorite in the northwest suburbs. Good food and the atmosphere is cosy with the fireplace during the winter months.

Great old fashioned restaurant. Food is always tasty and well prepared. Ambiance is right out of the 1950's... imagine an adult beverage lunch and a cigar smoke and you have it right! Every meal comes with a soup, a salad, and a main entree. Prices are not too bad considering (less than $20 for many items) and the house wine... More

I've eaten here a few times and the steaks are very good... the service is good. It is not a fancy place and its somewhere you can take your family as it is kids friendly.
