So I'm on a 24 hour trip to Chicago... had reservations at Chicago Cut.. but decided driving in from Arlington to the city Friday night at 8pm was not a smart move. An acquaintance recommended Jameson's as a sufficient substitute without the commute in and back out. I walked in, and felt good... You could see the steaks and fish... More

I get a bit of an "old-school" vibe from this place and it may come from the fact that the average age of the customers is up there a little bit. That said, they have a solid menu of a full range of things... steaks, seafood, chicken dishes, soups, salads, sandwiches, etc. Upstairs and downstairs seating, a nice bar and... More

We were leaving a nearby car dealership and since we were not from the area we asked for a recommendation. We are certainly glad we did--right down the street was Jameson's Char House. Not many cars in the lot but well lit up exterior and welcoming. We were seated immediately in the bar. Very attentive waitress provided us with their... More

I came here for a quick lunch during the workday. This place has air fresheners that you would find above a urinal in their lobby. Seriously? You think that is a good idea? The meal wasn't good, but continuously being reminded that I was eating in a bathroom completely turned me off. Will not return.

We went out with friends and one of the husbands was saying how great the hamburgers were here. He talked about it so much that I too had a taste for hamburger!!! Since we are gluten free I did not want the bun and just a hamburger and french fries did not seem just quite right for a Saturday night.... More

We ate our first meal here while attending our company Christmas dinner. We were so impressed with the food and the service. We ordered the salmon with wild rice and vegetables, which were cooked to perfection and were all piping hot. (Friends sitting near us said their steak dinner was also so delicious). The tiramisu was also a scrumptious dessert.... More
