Jameson's is a very affordable steak house with great food and drink. Staff is friendly and accessible. Start With Shrimp Dijon then follow with whatever the steak special of the day is .. KC 24oz is exceptional. - Enjoy

I have been here for dinner with my daughter and loved it. Within the past 5 years a group of us girls who have graduated from high school, have gathered here for lunch a few times and have always enjoyed it. Service is great. The servings are tasty, generous and oftentimes we end up taking home leftovers. I don't think... More

Took an hour to get the meal, restaurant was empty...strawberry margarita came in a water glass with whipped cream, horrible.. Shrimp in garlic sauce was like they dropped a bottle of garlic salt in it, very, very overly garlic..my husband said the steak was good...1sttime there, went for our 20th anniversary

Well, I generally don't write reviews but this still bothers me. About a month or so ago we went to Jameson's in Mount Prospect for my husbands bday, i ordered the fillet medallions (3), when I received my order I could not believe the size of them for the money I paid. There were 3 of them at about two... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday after church. This was our first and last visit. The food was terrible, the service was terrible, the staff was abusive. The police had to get involved to sort out our charges. Totally unbelievable experience.

A staple of the community, with many wonderful meals to choose from. I personally enjoy the pork chops,but everything I have ever ordered has been excellent. Sometimes it gets very busy so you may feel cramped best to go a little before the dinner hour.

Food was pretty good and good value. Soup, Salad, and one side included with entree. Order a sandwich and a cup of soup is included. The dining room does have to many tables in it. We had to ask a table in front of our booth to get up so we could leave.

We've always gone to Jamesons for dinner, but recently met friends there for a late lunch. Same great food and service as dinner. The only difference we noticed was you get choice of soup or salad instead of both with your entree and of course less expensive. Three of us had fish, which was fresh and perfectly prepared. I recommend... More

We came here on a Saturday night and was surprised that we were seated right away - no line at all, which was very unusual. Drink orders were taken, bread brought over, and then the waitress took our order. Great ribeye and strip steaks with soup, salad, vegetable, and rice or potato included in the entrée. Only issues for me... More
