Have been here several times, food and service is always good. Steaks are tender and cooked the way you order them, pork chops are thick and juicy, and the fish choices are a great option too. Prices are pretty reasonable for the size meal you get, soup or a nice sized tossed salad,potato, and a side of vegetable, plus your... More

The prices reflect the value of the food you are served. You will be happy with what you receive, however this is not the place to go for a high end dining experience.

Went for a friends birthday, the filet was great! Some others had the shrimp de jonghe as a meal, even though it's an appetizer. Very accommodating! Potato and soup or salad was included with my steak, it was all great! Go early, was packed by 5.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a review about a sister location in Huntley, IL. But friends assured us this location is a completely different experience! They were right! Decided to drop in without reservation about 5.00 pm on a Saturday evening. We were greeted at the door. Lobby seemed very busy but, wait, they took our name cheerfully... More

Had never been to Jameson's Char House before. I have to say that the service was very good as well as the atmosphere. I have not found anywhere around Crystal Lake that has RIBS as tasty as this restaurant. I will defiantly return for another meal.

We love Jameson's and normally save it for special occasions. Their menu is extensive and has a lot of options. It is pricey, but worth it to us! Most entrees come with soup and salad, so that's a plus - highly recommend this place!

My husband and I have been to Jameson's Char House a number of times over the years. We have never had a bad meal there. Generally, we order some kind of steak because that is what they are know for. Every course is good - wine, appetizer, soup, salad, main course and dessert. In our years of restaurant experiences we... More
