The food is excellent ! Steaks, chops & fish are the quality and size you would get at a top rated expensive restaurant with out the high price. You also get a full meal at the one price, dinner includes soup, salad, a starch and vegetable. The service is great, the décor is a little dated but respectable. I would... More

This restaurant is always crowded on weekends and the tables are pushed very close together. The table next to us was by the doorway and a room pass through. So there was a lot of foot traffic going past that table. Three groups were seated there and all of them asked to be reseated. We ordered several appetizers that were... More

Great steaks, every time we go there. You get soup, salad, vegetable, bread, potato, and an entree. Not overly expensive for the amount of food you get. My son loves the leftovers when I dine there.

We were in the mood for a good steak and that is just what we got at Jameson's Char House. The meal included soup, salad and a potato. My filet mignon was tender and grilled just as I ordered it. Would definitely return again the next time I visit my daughter.

We live in the area so it is very convenient to visit during the week or lunch. But it is a great place to meet friends without breaking the bank. And you get enough food that there is always leftovers. Service is always good. It is not too fancy but it still feels like a treat.

Great restaurant. After driving 7 hours from Northern Michigan we stayed at the LaQuinta next door to this fabulous restaurant. How convenient that we didn't have to drive to eat dinner after that long drive. The service was impeccable. Greeted immediately by a host. Our waitress immediately came over and offered us drinks plus menu and daily specials. Not only... More

I had been to the Jameson's in Bloomingdale a number of times and it was always good. So figuring it was the same owners or at least quality my wife and I stopped in tonight for dinner. So let me start by saying in 31 years on this Earth I have never sent food back. Never once. Ever. Either has... More
