We had a reservation. Arrived 5-10 minutes before our reservation time. We still waited about 10 minutes to be sat. We ordered Mia tia and sazarach. My Mia tia came in an inappropriately small glass with none of the fruit garnish. Because of that, it tasted like straight booze. I asked our waiter if it'd be possible to make a shrimp cocktail. He left to check and was gone for at least 15 minutes checking on tables beside us and running drinks. When he finally got back, he had forgotten to check. We ordered calamari and asked for more drinks. He took our glasses and returned a few minutes later to ask my husband the name of his drink. This Time, my Mia tia came in a pint glass with fruit. It was very good. I got a ribeye medium and my husband got a NY strip medium well. It came medium rare. Since our waiter didn't check back after food was delivered, I ultimately grabbed the waiter working in the next section. They put my husband's steak back on the grill until it was cooked how he ordered it. Been here before, and honestly expected a better experience. Kind of a let down.

Food, as usual, was excellent! Can’t beat their Prime Rib. The service, however, was horrible. It was a busy night, but delays in taking our order and bringing the check were excessive and there was basically no apology. Will go again, but wouldn’t have that waiter again.

Was able to get reservation for Valentine's Day - and had never been there before. Service very attentive; nice menu choices and price ranges; food was good; tables were a little close together and felt crowded as dinner progressed. Would go back again.

Calamari was phenomenal and fresh The absolute best cocktail sauce I’ve ever had. The french onion soup was amazing with plenty of croutons and cheese for every bite. The prime rib special was deliciously tender and pefectly cooked. I will definitely return when in the area!

My parents and I stopped in on Saturday (2/10) for dinner at about 6:00. The food was fantastic, as always, but the service was a bit off this evening. Our server, Elizabeth, was a bit “too comfortable” in my opinion. She made some comments throughout the evening that truly surprised me. My mother noticed a pomegranate martini on the Jameson’s menu on OpenTable, so she opted to try that. Elizabeth’s response was “are you really going to do that to them on a Saturday night?” I understand she was trying to be funny, but it made my Mother feel like she should order something else. Elizabeth insinuated dirty martinis were easier to make. Well, then you should take the pomegranate martini off your menu. Another comment that struck me as odd was when we ordered the special (salmon), my mom requested to have mashed potatoes instead of the rice that was offered. Elizabeth’s response was “people don’t typically order potatoes with fish”. I am not sure if she was just trying to be funny, but she made it very awkward instead. Service was also a bit slow. It is possible Elizabeth was just having a tough night. I do love this restaurant, and I will definitely be back!

The food was good, the service was fair. It is a convenient location when going to Northlight Theatre. We'll continue to go there before the theatre because it is conveniently located with plenty of parking.

My wife ordered the London broil cooked medium and it came well done. The gravy was so salty I could have come from the Dead Sea. Management was very attentive and credited the entree but we couldn’t wait for a replacement meal.

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.

This is in the hilton hotel in skokie, il. This would be a good place for guests at the hotel to go to - but if you're local there are much better places to venture out to. Wife and I had the filet - both were cooked per instruction and good - but the whole experience just seemed standard. I really felt like I was in a chain restaurant. Jameson's is a good value in that you get a soup or salad w your entree. The service when we dined there was not good (I think our waiter forgot about us as we got an entirely new one after waiting for him for 10 mins). Ambience could definitely use an upgrade - we sat by the kitchen - but as there is a partion we could only hear the noise versus seeing the action unfold (as with more modern dining experiences) it didn't look as if they upgraded the design since the place was a Boston blackies. If you like a cheap stake and you're near old orchard Jameson's would be a decent option.

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!
