Service was so slow. 2 tables that arrived at least 10-20 minutes after us received their dinners before us.

It was a really nice experience. I went for a special occasion with my boyfriend because it was his birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was great, the service was top notch. It was just a fun all around experience. Price point was great too! Highly recommend!

Food was delicious – all of our meals were great and big portions. Steaks cooked to perfection. A great meal only topped off by our excellent server Liz S. She was great and made our birthday dinner celebration even more enjoyable.

As far as Covid issues – plexiglass between the booths was good and staff wearing masks gave us comfort. Only problem was the owner or manager standing next to the booth right adjacent to ours for at least a half an hour talking and laughing to the customers without a mask. He was right in the open I’ll and can only imagine the potentially dangerous spray coming from his mouth as he turned various ways towards us and into the restaurant. Don’t think that should be happening and it made us uneasy especially considering the rising number of Covid positive patients.

We were a party of 4. We all enjoyed our meal. The filet mignon that I had was really really good. The quantities are generous... we all appreciated that our meals included soup, salad, potato or vegetable. We all felt that the prices were reasonable for the quality and quantity of food we received.

WE dined in and all Covid precautions where taken by staff and guests. The entire meal was outstanding. Our entrees came with a delicious soap and salad along with all the warm bread we wanted. My wife had a shrimp pasta dish and I had chopped steak with grilled onions and mushrooms. Both our dishes were excellent and large portions. We both took a large portion of our meals home for the next day. This is our favorite restaurant in Vernon Hills. We will be dining indoors again soon. Also a nice big fire going in the Fireplace to keep you comfortable in the fall and winter.

We visited Jameson's for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first visit to this location. We ate outside because, you know, COVID. It was 6 pm and the temps were dropping throughout our dinner. We were surprised the outdoor dining area didn't have heaters. Most other fine dining restaurants in the area are installing these for fall outdoor dining. We asked the waiter about the heaters and he said the restaurant doesn't want to encourage people to eat outside due to upcoming winter weather hazards and staff discomfort. Well, we don't feel comfortable eating indoors and we certainly won't come back to this restaurant this winter. Good luck growing your business with this attitude!
Fortunately, I can report that our service was good overall. I appreciate that soup and salad are included with entrees. That's hard to find around here! Our food had good flavor and quality, but our twin filets were overcooked. We asked for medium rare and they were medium/ medium well. A steak joint should get this right! Our margarita and Moscow mule we're good with plenty of liquor, but small and overpriced. Also, it was our anniversary and we weren't offered a special dessert or anything to celebrate. Altogether, our experience was not memorable enough to get me to rush back to this place.

WOW when we got the bill we had to rub our eyes . . . in these days of Covid Ripoffs, Jamesons really has kept true to their original quality and value. We had meals which INCLUDED the soup and salad, so we splurged dessert to take home and it was AMAZING. Homemade soup and salad dressings, served with hot bread! steak and fish cooked perfectly to order, hot fresh baked potatoes and veggies, it was like going back 30 years and really getting your money's worth of healthy fare.

I highly recommend anyone who is budgeting their entertainment dollars for QUALITY experiences, COME HERE!!!

My dinner just ok. Came to the table just barely warm. Kabobs very spicy. My 2 friends dinners were not good. Their soup was watery, their fish overcooked to the point of being dry and hard, salads just large pieces of lettuce. Very disappointing. Have been to other Jameson’s Charhouse restaurants and Food was always very good. Won’t come back to Vernon Hills. The server did a good job.

I’m so glad that Jameson’s Charhouse has added a location close to my home. The food was outstanding and so is the service. I ordered the barbecue ribs and they were the best I’ve ever had! The meat falls right off the bone and the barbecue sauce is fantastic. I would definitely recommend the ribs which also came with a soup and salad. I upgraded to the French onion soup and it was outstanding and very tasty. My husband got the New York strip steak and it was cooked to perfection. The martinis can’t be beat especially if you love blue cheese stuffed olives. The service was incredible and I felt very safe in this restaurant due to the fact they built and put 8 foot plexi glass in between the booths. So I felt very safe due to Covid right now.I cannot recommend this restaurant enough I wish I could give it more than 10 stars.

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.

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

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.
