We had a pork chop and chicken kabob. Both tasted liked they were cooked straight from the freezer. No more mashed sweet potato was a disappointment.
Our salad tasted unwashed and bitter.

Service was terrible,- I saw the bus boy more than I saw my server, Had to ask for more cold water, hot water- food was cold, they never checked back to see how our meal was, we were missing items, like salsa, sour cream, etc, and finally I had to ask a manager to get it.

They put down our check without clearing our dishes, never asked if we wanted coffee or dessert

The meal and the service were outstanding!!! The area where we were seated was just a little loud though, we visited the Skokie location and were seated in a booth with a frosted glass topped wall separating us from the kitchen. A little loud, but quite entertaining. The expediter was not saying anything wrong, but just loud. We did find it to be entertaining, at one point, we had hoped that he found "Junior". Maybe open up that wall for a more open style kitchen, the circuses would be interesting to watch. We have visited this location many times before and will continue to do so. As a side note, my group from work wanted to go out for a Christmas Dinner, I suggested this same Skokie location. We dined there in mid-December, about ten of us, all enjoyed very much.

It was our first visit Christmas Day. Outstanding Rib Eye Steak. Spinach Artichoke Dip was great. Our server Ceanna was wonderful. Made our dinner experience fun. Bartender Frank was very pleasant. We will be going back. Give it a try!

Took over 15 minutes for someone to come and bring us a glass of water let alone take a cocktail order. We had to ask the bartender to get someone. The meat was over cooked and as usual the sides were cold, which we had to ask for them to be nuked....again.

Thought we'd give them one more chance, had a few disappointing experiences, but ended up regretting.

We should have told the manager, if we knew who/where he was.

As we enteted, we were offered the booth in the bar by the front door, a drafty, noisy, terrible last choice table. As returning customers, we knew how bad it was, and we turned it down. Then the arrogant manager seated us immediately by the kitchen door at an added table in the primary waiter walk pattern (oh, yes, we had a reservation), we were told we would have to wait for at least 60 minutes if we wanted something else. Sadly, we accepted the last choice table, and tolerated being bumped into, until we realized that grease was dumped on my daughter's coat and on the floor. It is no way to run a restaurant!

Had a fabulous time. Everyone in the party had something different to eat and no one was disappointed! It will be the go to place when in the area. I will say reservations are highly suggested, we beat the crowds by coming at 5:30 and the stress on the kitchen staff. Great food, great drinks, great coffee and dessert!

Dined at Jameson's in Skokie three times and enjoyed the meal each time. Service was also good, attentive and accommodating when side substitutions were requested. Also, has easy
access for folks with walkers and handicapped parking is near by.

The food was pretty good, and while the server was attentive, he was miserable. He never smiled. He acted like he was doing us a favor by serving us. We were nothing but pleasant, but his attitude was the worst. I’m not sure the good food and good prices offset being uncomfortable with a bad server. We are not likely to go back.

What a convenient great dining location near Old Orchard, especially when going to the North Shore Performing Arts Center. Good reliable food and service and good wines by the glass at a very fair price. Nothing innovative on the menu but a lot of food for the money. I had the chicken artichoke dinner entree with soup, salad, delicious bread and steamed veg for the same price as a single glass of wine that I had in the city the previous evening!! The macadamia encrusted halibut (the evening special) was also fantastic. We were walking out of the restaurant and two other people were singing the praises of the halibut entree.

The power went out, completely, and many patrons sat in the dark for quite sometime. No candles were offered and it could have been turned into a romantic outing. We left having only been served our soup. No explanation was given for the power outage, but then again, no check was offered.
