From the moment you arrive in that restaurant the stuff gives you a nice feeling. Very hospitable hosts, it is a lovely place to go out with friends or with your date. heavenly cooking, experienced chef, reasonable price and courteous service. Highly recommended.

Good times, good food. I had the parmesan crusted sea bass it was out of this world and the fish was fresh. A little disappointed in the vegetable part I only got four stalks of asparagus: I wonder if they can spare them. A baked potato with a Caesar salad and tortellini soup it was a really good meal at a reasonable price. Our waitress, Desiree, was absolutely on the ball.

Review №3

Food was good, would be 5 stars if they got my order right the first time and cooked my steak a little longer. Enjoyed ourselfs!

Review №4

Awesome. Had the planked salmon special. Safe social distance dining out on the patio. Great to be able to support local business during these tough times

Review №5

Jamison Bloomingdale. Illinois. We always go there but my recent experience was too disappointing! We ordered a rib eye and NY strip and both were not good at all. NY strip meat was like cardboard, dry and hard. Had to return n got a sandwich since I did not want to wait long again. The waitress was nice but no apology came from the manager. A real disappointment! Hope they up the standard of steak soon.

Review №6

Steak was 30.00 which I'm ok with , tasted great but size seemed way smaller then my previous meals at other jameson's restaurants.....I'll pay a good dollar for a great steak but value seemed shy of expectations ....service had issues but resolved itself mid way thru ...we had a party of 15 for my birthday

Review №7

This restaurant has great service as well as enjoyable menu. The best spot in town. The food served quickly and the prices are affordable. Highly recommended.

Review №8

The service was awesome. The steaks were cooked beautifully. Can'tvwsit to go back again.

Review №9

Our waitress was the best always on point the food was just ok the waitress made the experience great

Review №10

This place is worth trying. They serve big portions for convenient prices. Regularly well kept and with great character. Will come back again.

Review №11

Food was good, server wasn't very pleasing, maybe she was having a bad day, which was no fault of ours. We may not go back, she turned us off

Review №12

I have been there on many occasions. The food is always great and so is the service. This particular occasion was for the luncheon after my father's funeral. They were able to accommodate us on Wednesday for a Saturday afternoon. The funeral ended earlier then anticipated and they were able to let us into the private room earlier as well. We also had more people than we anticipated. They quickly set up another table without a single moment of hesitation. On top of making that day a little easier, the food was still delicious and service great.

Review №13

Beautiful venue. Great food. Great service

Review №14

We love to go out. Last night we visited this fine place which friends recommended to us. We passed a beautiful evening there with first-rate meal and a well-trained team and a great cook. We added this fine restaurant in our list and we will definitely come back soon. We deeply recommend.

Review №15

The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly.

Review №16

Over-rated, I've been there several time in the past 7 months, food is marginal at best. Last night I had their Shrimp De Jonghe; my recommendation is not to order this.

Review №17

Great food and excellent service.What more could you ask for.

Review №18

Nice staff but food was not that good. Flavor was lacking and no salt. $200 bill, waste of money.

Review №19

Very reasonable prices and a lot of quality food. It is not a super fancy place, or one of those kitschy trendy spots with the remnants of grandma's yard sale bolted to the walls. The atmosphere is comfortable. It was my first visit but I will be back again and again.

Review №20

We came to this restaurant for dinner. my friend recommended this restaurant. Well, we were not disappointed. The staff were extremely nice and we felt good. The food was just great. We enjoyed every moment and we will visit this place again. we highly recommend this place.

Review №21

This is one of my favorite places to eat and have a drink at. The staff is so nice it's like being home.Updated: Just stopped by for amazing out door seating. They are trying hard and doing an amazing job during this pandemic. I love this place.

Review №22

Was OK. Seemed many of the patrons were walking around with no masks. Food was average. Maybe an off night for them.

Review №23

Certainly a spot worth stopping by, the food is excellent and well prepared, the rates are reasonable and it is constantly well organized in here. Kudos.

Review №24

We met with friends at this place for dinner. This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. Well, it was a winning. The staff were extremely nice and we had a fantastic feeling. The meal was fresh and delicious. We enjoyed every moment and we shall absolutely come back again. Recommended.

Review №25

Great steak! Great Waiters! Great service on a Friday night!!

Review №26

Took the wife there for her birthday. Normally, we love Jameson's. Visited 7/22/2020 and something was off. Perhaps it's not their normal staff? COVID has impacted us all. The wife ordered the Greek Halibut and it just wasn't right. The cuts were thin and dry, like half an inch thick or less. Not the normal thick cut...and it was drenched in sauce. Which on the thin cut was overbearing. In their defense, they tried to correct it, but the 2nd try wasn't much better. They took it off the bill. I ordered Jamesons special cut which I normally love. Mine was dry and overcooked this time, which I kept to myself letting them focus on taking care if the fish. My son got the kids fillet and loved it. The wine and calamari were great. 3 stars for the service and their attempts to fix the fish, but not sure their chefs have things under control at the moment... we will wait until things get back to normal before we return.

Review №27

To whom it may concern,I would like to start by saying that my family and I have resided in the Bloomingdale area (Carol Stream) for over 27 years, and have frequented Jameson's Charhouse regularly since the opening of this location. In all the years of supporting (and recommending) Jameson's, we had never had a negative experience with either the food or the service level. Until Saturday 2/15/2020. Our friends (at our request) had made a Reservation on (Open Table) for four of us to have Dinner. My wife and I each ordered the 16oz Rib-eye Steak dinners. When the food was delivered to the table, it was obviously apparent that my steak was NOT a 16oz Steak but a 10oz Steak. Which was confirmed by an additional waitress in passing. We asked that the Steak be taken back and the order be corrected. After 25 minutes of waiting for the correct order, everyone in our party having now finished their dinners, and being told on three separate occasions by our Waiter, "it will only be another minute", I finally requested that the Order be cancelled, removed from our Bill, and that our Check be provided. We then waited a minimum of 20 minutes for the Check, and questioned the Waiter, who asked two separate times "Has a Manger not come to see you", which we replied "NO". Our Waiter then told us he was unable to provide the Check until a "Manager" addressed us. Finally a young woman stopped by our table to address the Check (she did not share her name), as I told her the story of our experience, she starred at us blank faced, no apology, and said the Meal would be removed from our Bill, and she walked away. On our way out, I asked for the General Managers name, so I could send this correspondence. I had a quiet conversation with Gus, who stated he was the General Manager. I discussed our issues with Gus. Again, with the same results, a blank stare and unapologetic. At this point we were embarrassed by the fact that we encouraged our guests to dine with us at Jameson's. The Service level was absolutely unacceptable. Although I understand you can have a bad experience at any establishment, this particular visit was an embarrassment in our opinion. I would hope that an establishment like Jameson's would expect a more professional response from their "Management" Team, and have more respect for repeat business and the customers who support them.

Review №28

Last week was our first time in this magnificent restaurant. But It is obviously not the last. We had a good time with the excellent service, with the fine dishes and booze and with the honest cost. We will no doubt come back soon.

Review №29

Flavorless, poorly cooked Ribeyes. Service was great. Steak was embarrassing.

Review №30

I go with my wife to this lovely place many times a year! This is my favorite place to grab a bite. I go to this spot frequently. The meals are fantastic, the staff is polite and the prices are affordable. I enjoy meeting in this spot over a nice supper.

Review №31

We had a very nice server by the name of Nelli,who was really on top of things. Made sure we had refills of coffee & iced tea, regularly. Asked if we wanted bread ,until our main dish was served. Beef tips & pasta. Portion was enormous. Was very tasty. We love this Jameson's in Bloomingdale. Decorated nicely for Christmas.

Review №32

Great service each time we come. Steaks and ribs are incredible.

Review №33

Given this was probably their craziest night of the year, although we had to wait over 30 minutes beyond our reservation time, the staff remained courteous and diligent, true professionals. Steaks are amazing, but the salads are in need of a step up given the nature of the restaurant. Atmosphere, as always, is warm and inviting.

Review №34

I really like being out with friends, 1st time out since this flu 19 the restaurant trying sowing the best on Father's Day. We waited about 15 to 20 minute for a table for 4. It was worth it. Thanks..

Review №35

My daughter loved her steak.

Review №36

This was my uncle's favorite restaurant. We went with my aunt and cousins for a luncheon. I was impressed with the food and service we received there. I'd go back again despite the travel to get there. Oh my my steak and baked potato were cooked to perfection.

Review №37

We went to Jameson's to celebrate my nephew's birthday. On a Saturday night, the restaurant was packed but we were seated quickly and our server was very prompt and provided excellent service. The food is delicious (I highly recommend the harvest salad!) and the two steak eaters in our party said their steaks were cooked perfectly! I highly recommend Jameson's!!!

Review №38

Soup and salad with your meal.... the calamari was amazing... I got the Filet Mignon and it was perfect. I even recommend having them cook your steak at medium. Really busy but well worth the wait.

Review №39

Food was very good our waitress not the best. Not sure if she was new she was an older woman though. There was 6 of us she took the orders of 5 of us and left forgot about the 6th person.Our appetizer and bread took awhile to get to us. We were there I believe 2 hours total.Prices were very reasonable. For the 6 of us total was $125.

Review №40

Great service portions small though

Review №41

Great service and food experience.

Review №42

One of my favorite restaurants. I like the shrimp de jonghe appetizer and dinner. The pork chops are flavorful, moist and you get two enormous chops. Stop by the the meat fridge and view the great cuts of steaks that you can order. I never have room for dessert because they give you soup and salad before your meal. Try it you'll like it!

Review №43

Love the steaks. Great flavor!

Review №44

Well worth it. Great service, large portions, good wine. Perfectly cooked, huge(28oz) ribeye.

Review №45

Excellent food and drinks with some friends. The meal came with soup, salad and potatoes. My entre was very good. One suggestion....for a balanced meal, include a vegetable. The service was very good. It was a nice time had by my entire group. Thank you.

Review №46

Always have a pleasant experience every time we go out for dinner! Waiter was great, he was attentive, friendly. Appetizers came out on time. Food was delicious, from soup to main course. Family had a great time like always. Props to the waiter, we had a party of 8 for birthday celebration. He was always attentive to our table. Great job !!

Review №47

Food was very good, the service was very slow but if you're willing to wait a while, then it might be worth it. I got prime rib and it was exactly as I requested it. Everyone else food seemed to be good too but we have reservation but didnt get seated until 42min after our reservation time!

Review №48

Food was ok. The service was ok. Then again due to covid it's outside seating so they did the best.

Review №49

Wonderful place to have dinner as a couple or with friends. The staff is cordial and friendly. I wish they had Oyster Rockefeller like the Mt Prospect location.Our party of 5 enjoyed everything we ordered.

Review №50

Awesome I Love it

Review №51

Was disappointed with our latest visit. The ribs on special were merely OK, while the mashed potatoes were WAY on the other side of dry (told the server and she agreed, but did nothing to compensate). My wife's filet was pretty good, as was her baked potato, however. They used to be better than this...what happened?

Review №52

First time trying out the Chart House I like to suggest the people to try to ribs you won't regret keep up the great tasting ribs

Review №53

My first visit to Bloomingdale's Charhouse was a five star visit. The chicken/artichoke dinner came with a healthy and tasty dark green salad, a side of sweet potatoes, & asparagus for 18.95. Service was good and I love the cozy atmosphere of this restaurant. Best of all, I could hear the conversation of my table mates, even though the restaurant was crowded: great acoustics!

Review №54

Had ribs with mashed potatoes. The ribs and mashed potatoes were great but the gravy needs a little improvement. Friendly staff. Our waiter was very attentive.

Review №55

The food is always fresh and yummy, cashiers hands over fantastic customer service. I like how neat it is and vibes. Keep up the good work.

Review №56

Love the meals at this restaurant. Get the full meal including soup and salad with the dinner you choose and in many cases have leftover food to eat another day. Tonight I had a prime rib which was made perfectly.

Review №57

We were seated on time and our waitress was very nice.We ordered Shrimp De Jonghe and Calamari which had a greasy old oil smell and taste. Everyone ordered steaks.My Clam Chowder soup tasted good but all the soups were on the lukewarm side.The salad was chopped greens with 2 anemic looking tomato pieces on the side.My New York strip steak was cooked to order,but was on the tough side.The Broccoli served with the steak was old, bitter and almost raw.I would expect better quality from a Char house.

Review №58

Great food and atmosphere. It can be a bit pricey, but that is expected with this quality. We were able to get in and out within 1 hour, and we had a party of 6. This was great as we had places to be.

Review №59

Service & food were excellent

Review №60

This place is really great. The design is fabulous. Very roomy...Hosts are great and welcoming...the kitchen is open to your eyes, so you see the chefs cooking and nothing is kept in dark.

Review №61

They serve big portions and for reasonable rates. kind staff members. Fantastic work.

Review №62

Had reservations for 6:30.... arrived at 6:25 and was told we would have to wait 40 minutes. I understand it was New Years Eve and they were slammed but they could have done a better job at spacing out the reservations. We ended up getting seated at 7:30 (in the bar area) but didn't even see our appetizers until 8:30! Our waitress was probably the only good thing about our experience! I ordered a medium rare filet and it was well done! 8 shrimp came with and they were luke warm at best... they were out of mashed potatoes... (I would've sent my food back anywhere else but since we didn't get food until 2 hours after expected, I was starving!!!)I have been before and wasn't impressed then either! Not sure what Steakhouse's people have eaten at before... clearly those that gave it 4 or 5 stars have never had a good steak before! I will NEVER go back!

Review №63

The prime rib was cooked perfectly just the way I like it. The price was very reasonable too for a steakhouse.

Review №64

Best business meeting ever. Food and service, exceptional! Dessert were fabulous. I want to go back tomorrow! Do yourself a favour, go hungry, portions are huge.

Review №65

Presentation was not good on the food. I gave my filet mignon to my dog. If you have a pallet don't go here. Two positives, the servers are very good and the bartender made the drinks well.

Review №66

Affordable prices and the meal is humongous. NY Strip with baked potato side salad and soup come with it. Price is approx. $20. Can't beat it. Good bourbon selection. Had Weller 107 last time I was there. That's the red label!

Review №67

Terrific classic steak house, with good steaks, ribs, and chicken dishes from personal experience. Damn good bloody Mary too

Review №68

Great foodGood price

Review №69

It was my birthday dinner and I had a 7:30 reservation I arrived at 7:25 and was immediately seated. Our waitress was friendly outgoing took our drink orders immediately and promptly brought them back to us within about 5 minutes which is fine at which time we already knew what we were going to order so we put our order in. Within five minutes our salads came and we finish that off and we waited, and waited, and waited and when it got to be 8:30 and nobody had come to our table again it's either ask his for another drink or to bring us our food seeing as we've been sitting for an hour was beyond my comprehension. At 8:30 p.m. we walked out. So happy birthday to me!

Review №70

So far this restaurant gets alot of stars. You get bread and butter, soup, salad & full meal beef or chicken under $28. Adult drinks are strong and we'll balanced for taste. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Will try again on Saturday! Gin Blossom sooo good!

Review №71

The place offers a large range of fresh food. I enjoyed eating here. Staff members are always nice, pricing is reasonable and the place is always neat.

Review №72

Made reservations for 5:30pm waited 40 min past my reservation. When I Asked the manager how much longer it would be before we would be seated he got real snotty with me and said I DON'T KNOW without a pager was told it would be 10-15 min . His name was Gus. We where seated in the bar with people standing all around , bottles being tossed in the garbage couldn't even hold a conversation it was so loud. They over booked and couldn't handle it.

Review №73

Pricey. Strip Steak was very good. Soup was salty and cold. Shrimp deJonge appetizer was made from frozen shrimp. Wine and beer was cold and good. My daughter liked her lamb. However the broccoli on each plate was cold and not cooked thoroughly and bland, no seasoning. Great waiter. Service was very slow due to being very crowded and few waitstaff. Would not go again.

Review №74

Attended a wedding reception for my nephew on 5 19 . We were seated in the private room. Our server Desire' was absolutely amazing. She handled our large party with ease and grace. Gave individual attention to all. Thanks for making our visit perfect.

Review №75

Great food and atmosphere. I was a little disappointed last time in my filet, my son's sirloin tasted better but overall, very good. They also brought out at free dessert for my son's birthday.

Review №76

Awesome and tasty food, I liked the atmosphere this place has, and the staff members were super friendly. Will surely eat here again.

Review №77

The food is really good, and so is the service. We had to wait an hour past our reservation time on NYE, but we know it's their busiest holiday.

Review №78

Our go-to place when we want a great combination of cozy, great food, and great value. My favorite is the double porkchop with Applesauce. Comes with a lot of sides, so you better be prepared to share or take home.

Review №79

Great service by our waiter Brian. He was excellent! Completely unimpressed by the food. I ordered the special of Wild Caught Greek Style Grouper and it came out looking like a bad chicken fried steak smothered in gravy. Grouper is delicious and mild, so the smothering of garlic lemon gravy killed all flavor other than the gravy. My wife had the prime rib which was quite good. The tiramisu was extremely disappointing and tasted like it was out of a freezer box. The prices are on the upper end of medium, so I expected a little more in taste and quality. Probably would not recommend or make a return trip.

Review №80

Well it wasn't 4 stars on New Years Eve. Of course you expect the restaurant to run as it does any other day of the week but the seating situation was aweful. We made a reservation for 7 and didn't get seated until 8:15 or so. We were not the only ones who waited for their seat many people with reservations waited 2 hours or more. We found out later that they over booked. REALLY why would you do that? Food was excellent as usual.

Review №81

Food was delicious! Not bad prices for the quality and amount of food you get! Will definately be going back again soon!

Review №82

Great food and even better service

Review №83

A step above your local family restaurant with safe and familiar cuisine.

Review №84

Fantastic food and service. Menu options are very filling. You will not leave hungry. Plenty of parking out the back.

Review №85

Had lunch there with a good friend and enjoyed the food and the service.

Review №86

Would not/could not provide a calorie menu, I had even called/emailed in advance & was never gotten back to. When we went, the server gave us our drinks & did not return to our table until 45 mins later. We attempted to flag her down at one point & she said "oh of course, I will be right back" & continued to wait other tables for 15 more minutes before returning. We were there almost 2 hours. She was not busy, the other tables she kept returning to were happily eating & she was just bussing their extra plates.

Review №87

Excellent food and great service. Chicken with Artichoke is perfect

Review №88

I was there for a dinner meeting. Food was very good. My only complaint is that the broccoli (served family style) was in HUGE chunks about the size of a lunch plate each. We had to cut them apart to take a normal portion.

Review №89

Totally satisfied food topnotch service was perfect would do it again soon

Review №90

Great food, service and atmosphere.

Review №91

Very friendlyVery professionalI'm delivery driverThey always have the orders ready on time, very friendly staff

Review №97

Never a bad meal!

Review №98

The server Stephanie H was awesome. I wish the food matched. Great waitress, made everything better.

Review №99

Pretty straight forward place that provides a decent meal. Soup and bread with every meal is solid. I had the steak salad. The caeser dressing was on a little heavy and the steak was more rare than medium but a good amount and cut. Cream of broccoli soup was good. Not salty. Ciabatta bread and butter was warm and crunchy. Good solid lunch.
