Jameson's Charhouse - Arlington Heights
Jameson's Charhouse is a classic American steakhouse with a charming and relaxed atmosphere. This family-owned eatery opened in 1990 and has been serving lunch and dinner every day, seven days a week since then.

Jameson's menu takes all of the best elements of a great steakhouse and puts them on full display. Starters include decadent seafood like oysters Rockafeller, crab cakes and a jumbo shrimp cocktail. For dinner, the steaks are clearly the stars of the show. Diners can choose between dishes like ribeye, New York strip steak, filet mignon and butt steak as well as non-beef options like barbecued baby back ribs, pork chops and a rack of lamb brushed with dijon mustard.

Our server was outstanding
The steaks were undercooked, potato skins were dry/overcooked and the food took forever to come out to our table.
The place was a madhouse on a Saturday evening. Dozens of people waiting for their table, some with reservations and some without. This told me that this place was a good value. We had reservations and did not wait too long. Service was excellent-efficient and courteous. The food, drinks and dessert were all very good. Will be back.
You can always count on a great meal here.
Very enjoyable. Good food. Always consistent. Was a bit chaotic this trip but that didn’t negatively impact dinner.
Good food, service and value. Can definitely recommend.
Everything is just okay. Nothing really wows. Interior feels stale.
We sat in the bar and Bonnie waited on us and she is an awesome server!. The bar area has an awesome atmosphere. The food was great, so much for your $.
I would recommend to anyone!
Food is always great! Check in needs a bit of help!
Was able to get an early reservation 5:30pm, food & service were great! Place was packed with lots of people waiting when we left at ~7pm
Went out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food is always fantastic. Service is friendly and extremely polite, a tad on the slow side. Overall a great dinner with great atmosphere in the outdoor seating area.
Constantly very good service and food!
Food is great however I was here celebrating a birthday and the waiter did nothing to make it special. Why ask if I’m celebrating on the app if nothing is done.
George always takes care of us when we go to Jamesons. It is our favorite place to dine and take friends.
Amazing me and girlfriend loved the food and service
Food was very good and service great.
Great food and wonderful service in a Covid tent. Very much enjoyed our dinner. Our server was exceptional! Thank you!
Made a reservation and was greeted by Margarita who is always professional and friendly. We were able to sit outside in a lovely space and enjoyed our dinner.
Our server was great and we’re trying to squeeze more outdoor dining in before winter.
Special pre-concert event dinner with family. Everything was very well presented and tasted exceptional.
The food was good. I was surprised to see George without a mask.
Good food and plenty of it. Soup, salad, and huge portions.
Great server. Good food.
Service was unusually slow tonight. Not at all the normal.
The service was great. Anna was very nice and quick to respond to our needs. The food was exceptionally good. My only complaint. I visited during lunch on a Monday, so the restaurant was not very crowded, however they sat all of us in the same section of the restaurant, leaving substantial portions unoccupied. In these days of COVID, it would have been nice to spread out a bit.
Super loud, service slow
Dinner was very good as usual. Service score was lower because our server was clearly overloaded - not her fault. We were never offered water refills and never received any when we asked. We will continue to dine there but we hope the current servers get help. This is the second recent visit where servers were overloaded.
Having a reservation at OpenTable helped us get a seat very quickly. The service was great, the food was delicious, and our waitress was amazing.
The restaurant was extremely crowded that night. I believe an event was going on and possibly the restaurant was understaffed that night. Therefore the service was not quite up to par. It took a long time for a server to initially stop by. The birthday was never addressed. We received our bill before being asked if we wanted dessert or coffee. However, the food was outstanding! Overall, still a nice dinner out.
Too crowded. Tables jammed together. Service off. Way too loud. there were more people crammed in this restaurant than a holiday before COVID. Not a good experience. Food prep was off although adequate. One steak ordered medium came out raw. Not rare but raw. Second time came back inedible and still raw. Server acted clueless when diner returned item. Didn’t care. Won’t return again for a long while if ever.
The service was good, the food is on the pricey side. I ordered prime rib and it had a 1 inch bone. I have ordered prime rib from other restaurants and haven't had a bone in prime rib. The overall flavor and texture of the meat was excellent!
Phenomenal, as always!! So much food that tastes delicious!!! Even though the waiter was extremely busy, he was super fast and wonderful. He brought me a birthday cake at the end, too! The steaks are melt-in-your-mouth, amazing! I love the decor and atmosphere, it feels old school steakhouse, darker than most restaurants, which makes us look younger LOL. We have a Jameson's (not the same company) right down the street from us in Vernon Hills, and that's good, too, but it's just not the same atmosphere. Here, you also get more food for your money. Thank you AH Jamesons!!
One of my favorite restaurants. Always a good meal!
Rick was a wonderful server! Great food, great service. Would come back!
Every time I make reservations on Open Table and I say it’s a birthday or anniversary or a special occasion the restaurant never knows this. Then, why does open table ask in the comments section if there are any extra instructions? We went for our anniversary and I would have thought that would Have been notated on the reservation.
Always delicious steaks with excellent twice-baked potato with so-so veggies and side salad. Service a bit slow but understandable with staffing issues everywhere. All personnel very friendly and courteous. We sat outside in well-lit and well-ventilated tent, but noise level was a bit higher than we prefer, both conversations and music. crowded, as always, even early on a Sunday evening. Food still trumps any issues!
We had a very nice night dining outdoors in the tent! Safety precautions were followed and the food was great. Excellent value, and a beautiful night out!
Our server Dina was great. Very attentive.
Unfortunately we were seated near a party of about 20 and they were obnoxious. Not Jamesons fault. Made it very hard for their servers. Four kids were loud and running around. Parents fault. Never want to sit near a big party again.
Jameson's always has great food, and we loved the outside dining experience.
The staff was efficient and very friendly.
