Our daughter suggested we have her family birthday celebration here. We had to wait more than a half hour even though we had a reservation. This place gets busy! There is a reason. All of our food was really good. I had the 28 oz Ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. My wife loved her fish and my Brother In-Law loved his Chicken Kebob. I don't remember what everyone else had but everyone was happy with their meal. Our waitress was slammed but she kept coming back to take care of us. She always had a good attitude despite how hard she was working. Our check was much less than I expected so I was doubly happy. This place is a great value.

Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

I am in chicago in training and one of my classmates suggested to go Jaminson for lunch!

4 of us had a good time as the food and service were pretty good. American style burgers , steaks and daily specials. Portions are pretty good size.

I would go back again :)

“Service is Stellar and Reuben is Great!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Initially, hostess was not prompt not very friendly. However, our server was just wonderful, the menu extensive, the portions hefty and very tasty! I had the Reuben. It was hard carved and served without too much sauce. I will be back.

“Hungry for a good steak or prime rib?”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are several locations in the Chicago area, but I have only been to the one in Mt. Prospect, which is the original location. They have daily specials, not only steaks, ribs, and prime rib, but also fresh fish. There is a warm fireplace and an open kitchen, and high-back booths for privacy. I have never been disappointed with a meal.
