Best steakhouse around. The service is spot on. And the food is so delicious. I usually end up with enough to have for lunch the next day. Great place to eat.

chicken soup was so-so. Halibut looked like it was sliced in 1/2 never saw one that small. But the taste of everything was wonderful!

The food and service were outstanding. We felt the wine by the glass prices were absurd.
They were charging $12 for a glass of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc which is about the price of a bottle of the wine. It was the only Sauvignon Blanc listed in the menu. Some of our party also complained about the other wine glass prices.

I would suggest you order by the bottle.

Other than that one issues the experience was great.

Great food, they have a nice large tent for outdoor dining. Good service, i think they were little short staffed but still good overall.

The service was slow as far as ordering drinks.
The soup and salad was there before the drinks.
The waitress was very good though.
An overall good evening.

The outdoor area needs some serious work to it. Especially if COVID continues, the outdoor area should be updated to be a permanent area.

Our waiter, Albert, was wonderful. So funny and his dinner suggestions were perfect.
We were seated on their patio but the weather was very nice and we were very comfortable there. I will definitely go back.

Food was good and generous portion for appetizer. Wait staff was friendly and prompt. My husband and I came at 4:30 thinking there would not be many people, but nearly all of the outside seats were taken, so it’s good we made a reservation. But I don’t feel the tables were socially distanced well, especially since there were two large groups. Seeing there were two large parties, management should have extended space between tables and expanded number of outdoor tables.

This was our first time dining in the restaurant. We'd had the dinner carry out twice previously, which was great, and were truly looking forward to dining inside the restaurant. And, we were not disappointed. Although we were practically alone, due to mostly that it was 5:00 on Sunday and, of course, operating under Covid-19 rules. But none of that swayed our enjoyment. The service was excellent, friendly and always prompt, by a very good server. And the food was outstanding!! We seldom get apps but chose the artichoke/spinach dip which was far and away the very best we have ever eaten. And I always like a good steak, and I absolutely loved this one. We will definitely return soon.

Jameson’s is a great addition to Vernon Hills. They did a great job transforming the old THIF restaurant. Their menu is very appealing, prices a little high in some areas and high quality.

Party of 6. Two birthdays. We were going to eat outside, but because of the heat the restaurant called and suggested a table inside. I was reticent due to the ages of the people in my group, but was assured they would give us a table that was a stand alone. Took a chance, it was a great table. The service was fabulous and the food was so good. Birthday guys got special desserts and we all had a great time. Looking forward to returning again. THANK YOU TO THE ENTIRE STAFF!

Dinner was very nice - first time eating inside a restaurant - the social distancing was great as was the enforced use of masks when not at your table. Food was good - my husband's potato was cold and they couldn't be better about fixing the situation. I would say this is a great price friendly restaurant for a good meal.
