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.
An overall wonderful dining experience!!! Burgers were OUTSTANDING!!! Chicken Sandwich was DELICIOUS!!!! Ribs were flavorful but not as tender as would have been liked... Nelly was a very Friendly, Professional and EXCELLENT Server!!!
Cedar plank salmon was mediocre.
Nice place, great food, good service! A nice place to gather with friends.
Great food and excellent service.
The lamb chops were disappointing - more fat than meat.
Jimmy's Signature Sirloin was quite tough. Expected better from a named entree. Ribs were also very tough and dry. Salad was great. French Onion Soup So-so. Tables were far closer than COVID safety should allow. Nice place, but lacking as a pleasant dining experience. Won't be back.
Everything was perfect! The service, the food, the atmosphere…all outstanding! We used to have a Jimmy’s Charhouse right down the street from us. It was one of the first places my husband took me on a date! When it closed we were so disappointed! But a few years later we found out about this one! We were so excited and we drive almost an hour to get there but it’s totally worth it!!!
We ordered the baked French onion soup, the char house burger, and a ribeye. The onions in the soup were crunchy (how is that possible?), the burger was meh, and the side of fresh veggies for the steak was comprised of a single small branch of a crown of broccoli…basically two bites of broccoli. We ordered a bottle of wine, which even that was strange because they were out of most of the wines on the menu. The service was fine, nothing spectacular, basically the same as the entire dining experience. Bottom line, for the money there are better options out there.
Good food, although a little expensive. Very quiet due to coronavirus fears, I guess they're now closed.
Filet Mignon brochettes .... delicious with all the sides.
Wonderful wait staff and delicious dinner. I would greatly recommend this to anyone in the area. We drove from Aurora as it’s one of
F our favorites
JIMMY'S IS ALWAYS ONE OF MY FAVORITES! SERVICE, FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE IS TOP NOTCH!
Although we've had terrific experiences at all our past visits, this one was disappointing. My lamb chops were terrific and the steaks from my husband and our son's surf & turf were good, but the lobster was very disappointing. It seemed to have been frozen too long and was a little tough and tasteless. They didn't tell me until we had left, because they know I would have said something. Our server, Morgan, was terrific. Professional, efficient, attentive and personable. I now she would have fixed it. She's one of the best servers I've ever had. We will be back, often, but will never order the Steak and Lobster again. :(
Always great food and overall great experience.
Saturday night dining at Jimmy's Charhouse is always a perfect evening. Enjoyable meeting and making new friends after dinner in their cocktail lounge.
Great Meal & Service!
Excellent food and quantity. Dinners include soup or salad. Daily specials offered too.
Server was great. Quiet and enjoyable.
The Saganaki was delicious. We enjoyed the filet mignon, prime rib and salmon. Everything was tasty. The Caesar salad had too much dressing on it.
THE WAIT STAFF IS GOOD...NOT GREAT, BUT NOT TERRIBLE. THE FOOD IS ACTUALLY TERRIBLE, THE CALAMARI IS RUBBERY, THE STEAKS WERE WARMED UP, MAYBE FROM JEWEL? IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A JAMESON'S LEVEL OR EVEN OUTBACK, DON'T GET YOUR HOPES UP. IT IS NOWHERE NEAR MONTARRA. IT IS BASICALLY AN UPSCALE RUBY TUESDAY'S OR FRIDAY'S. I'D EVEN GO AS FAR AS UPSCALE CHILI'S. THAT'S IT....NOTHING SPECIAL. THE WINE WAS GOOD!
Everything was great.Happy w/ apps to entrees,dessert too.Seated promptly in nice area we hadn't sat in before,nice booth.Food is consistently good.Will definitely be back.
Fresh fish, delicious chicken, lamb and steak dinners .... all are excellent. We love dining at Jimmy's Charhouse.
Only waited around 5 minutes to sit,’we were told 15. Our waiter was right over with waters and to get our app over and took great care of us the whole time!
My boyfriend and I came to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It was more of a family-friendly environment, but still a nice ambiance for a date night. Our steaks were delicious, but the garlic mashed potatoes were a bit stronger than I’d have liked. Overall, a great experience and excellent service! We’ll definitely be back!!
Ran out of Filets at 730 at night. Other steaks subpar
Hostess seemed to be overwhelmed with the large Valentine’s Day crowd. We waited about 30 minutes past our reservation before we were seated. Overall, our server was pleasant and the food was decent.
Food was great! Side room near front door was very drafty and cold.
I had a 630 reservation and I was told there was a 45 min wait. NOT GOOD
A very nice place and really good food and value. Service was great!
Had a great Dinner with my Wife and My Grandchild and his girlfriend!! Dissappointed in my food because I asked for Chicken Al Forno and got 2 seperate plates. One with Chicken and another with pasta.
THEY ALWAYS COMBINE THEM IN ONE GREAT BIG PLATE AND IT IS DELICIOUS!! I HAD IT ON NEW YEARS DAY AND IT WAS MADE PERFECT!!! THIS WAS TERRIBLE AND TASTELESS!!!
Tight space in between tables. Very loud. Calamari was too chewy. Waitstaff, Jenilee, was wonderful.
Consistently great service. Friendly. They understand food allergies!
Filet Mignon Brochette w/rice was delicious. Miss the music that they used to have in the Bar on a Saturday night. Hope they bring it back.
Good food good service and reasonably priced. Try the prime rib really good.
Friendly and attentive service, wide variety of cocktails and wines, food was excellent.
Good steaks and cooked perfect
Good food for the price
Another wonderful meal and great service. New Years Eve and it was packed. We had our reservations via open table and were seated right on time....even with all the walk ins. Great food and solid drinks....dessert was excellent! Consistently good in everything they do.
Food was excellent, ambiance was good. A little bit crowded and a little noisy. Otherwise always good.
