Jimmy's Charhouse - Elgin
Remember to visit our lounge, the perfect place to relax after long day at work, or after a delicious dinner in our dining room.
We had the best server ever!!! His name is Marvin! You need to hire more employees just like him! In fact, almost all restaurants could use an employee like him. Marvin has a unique style of making you feel like family without interfering with two couples ability to converse and enjoying a dinner.
The food, service, atmosphere and more are all great at Jimmy's every time I dine there. Thank you so much!
Overall it was a very good experience. Our server Marvin was awesome!!! Potato skins were a little overdone. Would have like a bigger steak for the cost but it was delicious.
Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Was prompt without being hovering. #63-Marvin made the evening with our grandson and family memorable. Food was very good, but in truth the appetizers tend to be a bit too large as far as quantity. Wine selection very good and reasonable, but desert options are limited.
This was our second visit to Jimmy's Charhouse. Both times we had an excellent experience. Our waitresses, Maria the first time and Kristin this past Saturday made us feel very welcome. Two great experiences. We will be back. We live nearly an hour away but the trip was worth it on both occasions! Keep up the good work.
Everything was perfect!!! The food was outstanding and the service was top notch. Debbie our server was amazing. She was so kind to our kids and they can't wait to go back.
It's fine. The food was alright. I wasn't disappointed. I just would have liked a better experience for the menu prices. This place can't decide if it's a steakhouse, an Italian ristorante or a family chain restaurant.
First time dining at Jimmy's. we sat at the bar which was quiet and not too crowded. The $20 special menu is a good value and includes dessert. I had the London Broil which was Delish! preceded by baked French onion soup that was very good. My wife had the Blackened Salmon which she liked but the Blackened seasoning was pretty strong. we'll return again.
The food and the service was outstanding! Best steak ever!
Grecian salad with Chicken .... excellent. Live music in the bar.
We were at the Elgin location on 6/22. I had the Mahi Mahi and it was cook to perfection the butter sauce was to die for. The entertainment was energetic. The waitress was attentive and friendly.
we meet some nice people , feasted well. How much more can you ask for.
Saturday night dining at Jimmy's Charhouse is always enjoyable....food, service and atmosphere. Live entertainment in the Bar makes for a perfect evening.
They were already out of prime rib at 6pm on a Friday night. That is a huge mistake on the part of whomever was doing the planning and was very disappointing as this is the second time I've gone for the prime rib and they were out relatively early in the evening. The food I did get was good but the disappointment overrode my enjoyment of my meal.
We had a party of 7 work colleagues. Food was excellent and $20 chef specials were great.
2nd visit to this place that took place on Father's day. Can understand there being delays because of the large groups--but it took them almost an hour to just bring out our salads. Will try them one more time.
Excellent meal, great service. Very accommodating for dietary restrictions. Meats cooked perfectly to the ordered doneness. Observed very large portions on pasta dishes that frankly put nation chains to shame in terms of value. Drinks also great value.
4 of us came to celebrate father's day. every meal was good except the stuffed shrimp that my husband ordered. too much breading/stuffing and not enough shrimp. the rest of the food, including the appetizers was very good. we had a great server - she was a young gal and very sweet. a couple of minor glitches - they were out of the red pepper for my meal, which was a bummer, so i did not get to enjoy that part, and they were out of the small bottles of lambrusco. not our first visit to jimmy's - we come quite often. prices were inflated for the holiday but i guess that's expected. we, of course, will be back.
After ordering a special steak on the menu in which the waitress did not ask how we wanted it cooked had to track her down to put in our request, she was sitting at a table gabbing with 4 other coworkers doing nothing when I’m sure there was plenty to do for all. She comes back 5mins later to tell us she would recommend we order a different item because she has had complaints on that item that evening. If that was the case why didn’t she mention that initially and why would you say that about something your serving in general big red flag. The French onion soup that was ordered in which they charge extra for the cheese when brought to the table have a 1/2” layer of cheese on it hardly any broth that much cheese is not needed and isn’t palatable whatsoever. The decor in the place is very drab as well as it had not been cleaned or dusted in probably over 6 months, some of which hangs over the tables that patrons eat at. Very dirty and disgusting cannot believe the owners/management lets that slide.
We came here for a casual Saturday evening out. Dinner was great and very good service! Food was very good and reasonably priced!
Grecian Halibut w/rice pilaf was excellent as was the service in the dining room and the bar.
Wide variety on the menu. Great quality at reasonable prices. Templeton Manhattan was the best I ever had. Prime Rib and full slab of ribs were enjoyed by all in our group.
All food was delicious but the filet shishkabob was supposed to be rare but was served medium. The restaurant was to busy to send it back.
Grecian Halibut fish is excellent as are the steak and pork chops. The Lamb chops are a favorite also. Music on Friday and Saturday nights is a plus.
Always have a nice dinner at Jimmy's Charhouse. Comfortable, great service.
The ribs were dry like they had been reheated. Everything else was fine.
The prime rib was not good. the rest of the food was not great either. I thought this was an upscale steak house. Its not !!
Great food and service. Hostess and waiters were pleasant and courteous.
Ordered a draft beer and when it got to our table it had ice cubes in it, ordered the prime rib and asked for a med rare cut, waitress said it would come out med well or more done, she then comes back and says we could have it anyway you like they just pulled it from the oven, so ordered med rare again and when order came out it was rare or even blue, sent it back to cook longer and when it came back others in our group had to wait for me to finish while they watched, very uncomfortable
Dined on the Filet Mignon this evening. Listened to the entertainment in the Bar afterwards.
Fantastic food and environment! Service was 5 stars!
Nice atmosphere, good food, entertainment, clean restrooms, friendly service.
Sub par food and service. Might possibly be your place if you want specials with large quantity of food for the price.
Mother’s Day dinner
Here for Mother’s Day. Got the Surf and Turf, lobster was excellent and filet was cooked exactly the way I ordered it, medium rare. Only issue was the beer on tap that I ordered had been out since the day before, little disappointing... could have a better beer selection. Otherwise, overall experience was good, food was good, would come back.
The stuffed shrimp with crabmeat was a little fishy, which I told the waiter. Otherwise food was great
I called the day before our reservation to ask if I could add 2 more people to my reservation. I was told very politely, that it would not be a problem. My family (mom, husband, brother, sister-in-law and I) had a wonderful time. Our server was kind, gracious and right there when we needed her. Our drinks were generous and flavorful! The food was exceptional. All of us had some kind of meat and the 'char' was perfect on each of our foods. We all said that we need to come back here more frequently because the excellent food, tasty drinks, ambiance, courteous wait staff and convenient location.
The overall experience and delicious food will bring us all back again and again.
The atmosphere was very charming. Tamara was very welcoming as we entered the establishment. The food was served in a timely manner. Our server went out of her way to meet our expectations. Overall, it was wonderful experience.
Please fix the lighting in the upper dining room. The flickering lights were bothering everyone
Mother's Day celebration on Saturday night. Dined on the Grecian Halibut. Excellent and so was the service on a very busy night.
Very good service and food. Table was in aisle and my service station. Music too loud. But all in all very good
