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!

Good food, good portions friendly staff. Service is good - almost too good at times with servers asking to take our plates before we finished eating! Overall good value for the money.

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.

This is the best value on the NorthShore
My entree included soup and salad
I was stuffed before the entree arrived
My companion had two delicious appetizers: a knockout onion soup and yummy sliders
Our service was excellent
We were welcomed at the door and bit farewell when we left

What a find!

My husband and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary here and everything was perfect. Delicious food (prime rib and halibut with salad and soup and side dishes included), reasonably -priced, excellent service, free parking, easy to talk. Easy to get a private table on a Sunday night. Highly recommended over the line-out-the-door circus that many Saturday and Sunday night places have become. Do yourself a favor and try dinner at Jamesons!

Had a small Caesar Salad which was very good. Had the 6 oz Filet Mignon (Medium #3) which was a disappointment. It appeared to have been tenderized a little with a tenderizer mallet.
A good Filet Mignon should not have to be tenderized with a mallet. The sides, broccoli and mashed potatoes were very good. Had Crème Brule for dessert which was excellent.

Jamesons must be owned by the Trump family. All talk and can not deliver a damn thing. We arrived at 6:30. and never saw our main course at 7:50. Our,waiter was scattered and disorganized. I actually thought he was stoned. Had to ask for straws 4 times. All in all we finally left without dinner we were not the only party in the restaurant that suffered a similar fate. I guess all the advertising in the world will not keep this location operating for very long. THIS PLACE NEEDS LOTS OF HELP.
