This place is always good. Good service, good food, good selection. Was there again this past Saturday with family and once agian all five meals were great. Staff in restaurant and bar are always friendly. The place was packed but we were seated after only a few minute wait. Can't wait to go back.

Very rarely do I rate a restaurant five stars but this restaurant deserves every star...the atmosphere was great, good lighting not too bright, pleasing decor creates a warm, comfortable feeling, excellent service by friendly staff, bartender knows how to make a good drink, our entrees were generous portions and so flavorful...Steaks cooked to perfection. A totally perfect dining experience.

Jameson's has a reasonably priced menu with a wide variety of items that work well for a group with diverse preferences. I have been dining at Jameson's periodically for over 15 years - with family, business associates, and on special occasions and holidays and have never had an "bad meal". Fireplace in winter is an additional "plus". Some of my... More

We went out for dinner with friends while on a weekend getaway. Our service was just OK, we had a hard time getting our waitress, and when we did she didn't stick around to find out what everyone needed. This caused her to make several trips for drink refills instead of one. It seemed like she didn't have time for... More

I was surprised to find a restaurant in Arlington Heights that cuts their own steaks and displays fresh meat and fish in a cooler in the lobby. The prices are reasonable and food portions are HUGE! They have a full bar where locals and visitors alike hang out after work. This is not what I would call an upscale restaurant,... More

We were surprisingly disappointed with the experience we had here. We went with about seven others (10 in total). The service was unprofessional and slow. The food was avaerage at best and no one inthe place seemed to care. The servers clearly acted like they did not want to be there and when the food came out over cooked, it... More

We tried the Goose Island root beer. Delicious. A warm, fresh loaf of bread was delivered to the table. Our server brought a second loaf when we finished our first one. The shrimp cocktail was fresh, the shrimp were large and succulent. The baked onion soup was loaded with cheese. The steaks were prepared to perfection. The entrée included a... More

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.
