Great food. Love their endless warm bread they serve. Fabulous cream of chicken soup and french onion soups! It is a bit noisy when busy, otherwise the ambiance is warm and inviting. Very friendly and helpful servers. You won't be sorry!

A Friday night dinner with a large group and the food was excellent, especially the New England Clam Chowder. The Fettucine Alfredo with shrimp was perfect and a huge serving. The only problem is that the noise level is such that it is difficult to talk to the person right next to you at the table!

At Jameson's you get so much for your money. There's both a soup AND a salad. Their lentil soup is amazing. The salmon tastes awesome, and they're known for their steaks. The portions are very large. The Mai Tais are perfect.

The food was absolutely delicious. Everything from the bread and salad to the main course was great. We have eaten here several times and it is one of my favorite restaurants. The service is always fast and no matter who serves us they are always happy and helpful.
