I've eaten there a few times. I've had delicious sea food but every time I've eaten their beef, it had an odd taste to it. Last visit I ordered a filet that tasted like the barn yard. Will go elsewhere for beef in the future.

The food, the drinks, the service and atmosphere is always great at Jameson's. Steaks are always cooked to perfection and always a choice of fresh fish on the daily menu and drinks are reasonably priced! We both ordered a Tangary Martini and Spinach and artichoke...dip with chips. For dinner I ordered a Rib Eye and my wife ordered the Pork Chops, both came with soup and salad! Both entrees were perfect!More

Great service. Oscar out server took good care of us. Potato skins appetizer was really good . The Prime rib and Philly chicken sandwiches were very tasty. The salads were large enough to take some home. Prices y reasonable.

We love your food but your call in service has to improve. Last night I called in an order for Fried Shrimp, side of fries. Salad & Soup. Bread & Butter. Simple. She took my name & I offered my phone number. My wife to...pick it up and was told she had no order for Bob & had no phone number. She suggested I may not have called Crystal Lake. My wife calls me & tells me this. So I called back and the same girl answered. I asked do you remember me calling in an order (for the above) and she says yes. Is this Tom ??? No this is Bob & please give this order to my wife who is standing fight there. End of the story, NO. Missing cocktail sauce and ketchup and fries. Peter, you need to do something about this but maybe you already know.More

Food is great and service is efficient. Prices are reasonable for what you get. Good selection of beers. Only drawback is that it is very noisy.
