Been to a Jack’s before? Then you’ll notice we’ve shaken things up a bit this time around by adding some new menu items designed just for you! Fresh tacos, board nachos and a selection of mouth-watering burgers are waiting to be inspected by your taste buds. We now feature 40 beers on tap, including some of Ontario’s own local brews.



So what about this Jack’s has stayed the same? Same great food, same great people and of course, the same chalkboards giving you something giving you something funny to look at- besides your date!



Get your butt down here right now!

The service here was spot on. We had a small issue with one of our food items but it was taken care of so quickly and without issue. Thanks so much to our waitress Crystal and the Kitchen Manager!

I would highly recommend Jack Astor's to a friend or family because of atmosphere consistent quality and service with a smile. I have not been disappointed since I started coming on a regular basis for special occasion. looking forward to my next visit there.

Service was good, we were helped the moment we walked in the door despite it being decently busy. Our server (Brooke) was extremely nice and patient as we had a hard time deciding what to order. The drinks & food came very quickly after we ordered which for us is a big win as we have had long waits at other restaurants in the past. The food was spectacular and and well worth the money. I would 100% recommend this place to a friend, and I plan on going back sometime soon!

Valentine's Day and they burned my steak. I wasn't going to say anything but the waitress came by and noticed it. She took it back to the kitchen for a new one but left the potatoes and veggies. Well seriously I'm not going to eat those until have my steak back...I just don't eat it separately. Everything was cold by the time the steak came any my boyfriend had already finished his dinner. Was incredible that it took that long!? It was very disappointing particularly on Valentine's Day... I told the waitress that I had lost my appetite by now and she appeared mad at me. Made me feel like it was my fault and she was doing this nice thing for me!! It was crazy. We left immediately after...so ridiculous

I've been a regular at Jack Astor's Barrie location since 2007! My favourite waiter was on sick leave, so we just sat where there was seating for 2 people. Our waitress was awesome! Debbie was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly! She took care of my friend's picky eating requests, with grace and positivity. I was pleasantly surprised and when Jay isn't there, I will be asking to be seated with Debbie. She even recognized that I'm a regular & that I normally sit in Jay's section. That made me feel welcome, especially since I haven't been able to come out for dinner for a while now. Also it was so easy to reserve our table online and were shown to our booth quickly on arrival. Debbie made the experience worth us staying, even after our main meal was done.

Arrived early for my reservation, was seated and asked by the greeter to keep my visit under an hour and a half as they were overbooked. My server was a doll, super friendly and helpful. The food tasted good, however I felt that the portion size was not close to worth what I paid for it. It was so small that a toddler would still be hungry after eating there. I probably won't go back and I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

We booked for a large group because it was my little brother's birthday, and it was an alright experience. I was a little disappointed upon arriving that we were seated literally right near the entrance at two joined tables. There were people constantly having to get past us to leave and it was a little annoying. I would have thought that if I was booking for a large group that we would have been put somewhere not so invasive. Other than that, food was okay. Nothing to write home about. Will still go cause I love the specials and the menu but in the future I don't think we'll ever book for a large group again.

Reservation confirmed online,followed by a call from the restaurant telling me several large bookings had been made for the same evening....would we mind eating in a booth situated between the dining room and the bar.. We said sure.
When we arrived,our table was still occupied.we were given a temporary smaller table and ordered drinks.once the group left,the original table was quickly setup for us and we were offered a free appetizer for our inconvenience.
Throughout,the staff was pleasant and did their best to make sure we were satisfied.
Overall,we had a great time and food was terrific.

The service was amazing but when I got to the restaurant they had no record of my reservation even though I had a response confirming my reservation. Unfortunately it wasn't very busy so we were seated right away

I had made a reservation with a request for a high chair - when we got there they said the table wouldn't accommodate a high chair only a booster but my infant baby can't sit in a high chair. They had 2 large parties of adults at a regular height table and my reservation at a bar height table. We had to wait for another table to be arranged for us and with an infant and 3 year old was a little bit of a hassle. The waiter was great and so was the food. The seating arrangement was the only complaint

I had the pad Thai - and there was zero flavour in it. Would be nice with some spices and or salt/pepper. Service was good though, and sitting outside was also nice. However, don't come here for the food.

The service at Jack Astor's is usually great, not this night. We go often but this night food took 1 1/2 hours, server was to busy, and some food came cold. We know this is not a typical evening at Jacks so we will probably try again. I made a reservation and still was seated close to the front door, very cold. When you take the time to make a reservation you should get better seating.

We had a good experience at Jack Astor's when we went for dinner with our family. The food was great and our faitress was friendly. The only negative things would be that it took a very long time to get our drinks refilled as it wasn't our waitress handling it and we all found the waitresses skirts to be inappropriately short.

I don't recommend Jack Astors for a family meal. We were two people for Lunch and it cost $60 with the tip. Ok, if you are having a business lunch and can write it off or you go out for a beer after a game or show. If you Have kids it's ok lots of noise so you can't hear the table next to you talking. TO expensive. That's why I don't go all the time. That was my second time and same result to Expensive.
