Welcome to Jack’s Kingston – where even the Chamber of Commerce thinks we’re awesome! Winner of the 2017 Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce: Tourism and Hospitality award.

Our mission? Great people helping other great people totally have a blast while enjoying amazing food. Wow, that was a mouthful. But can you blame us? We’re a restaurant. One that specializes in delicious food and great times. Our goal is to make you laugh. And depending on your hot sauce tolerance, cry.

In all seriousness, we take real pride in our food. Try our Cluckin’ Fresh Chicken Fingers, made and seasoned with fresh, never frozen chicken tenders. This isn’t run-of-the-mill pub grub.

But outside of the kitchen, we find it hard to take ourselves seriously. We have an Elvis booth. For no particular reason. Folks, that really does say it all. We’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.

    Food was great but the service was terrible. 20 mins after sitting down the server finally came to ask us what we wanted to drink then took another 10-15 mins to get the drinks. She then took another 20-25 mins to come back to ask us what we wanted for our meal. By the time we got our meal, we were there for over an hour. Food was amazing though, tasted excellent and it was hot! The service just ruined the overall experience unfortunately.

    Great Mother’s day lunch, service was great! ( Nikki G. As on receipt)The only downside was the speaker was right above us, which was very loud, this made it hard to converse with the people I was with and with the server.

    We had the experience to dine yesterday and it was far from a success. Last visit we dined upstairs and it was fantastic. LuLu was our server, but needs more training. Lulu took original bill back to complete tip. Bill was 107.26. I gave her two separate papers with gift amount. Never got them back either, but I had copies. Would like a copy of bill for my records. Steak, brushetta fantastic, hot crab not so good. Downstairs too noisy.

    Was seated in the back towards the kitchen. There must have been a door open back there because there was a crazy cold draft. Suggest to sitting back that way.

    They put us at a high table by the door with two small kids. A booth or upstairs would have been better for a family of 4… she put us there and said sorry we have a lot of reservations but there was still multiple empty booths when we left . Food was okay, not the best. And I found the menu lacking. Personally won’t be going back for a dinner night out.

    We had to order twice because, anything with chicken breasts were not available. We had to wait 50 min for our food to arrive after ordering the second time. It was ok if your ordered chicken fingers but the burgers were very over done. Our table of six did receive 50% off our entire bill

    Went in at 7:30pm on Monday’s august 19th, and had a very quick wait for the patio. While waiting we ordered a bottle on wine at the bar. We paid right away and took our wine to the patio in just minutes. We then waited 15 minutes to be greeted. A few tables by the sides with a view had opened so we asked our server if we could move. She said she’d have to ask the server then went over and waited at a table for another server for a few seconds. Then came back and said she was checking with the host. I didn’t want to make a big deal so told her not to worry. Then ordered two medium rare steaks with mashed potatoes and a Cesar instead of side veg. Something we do all the time at other Jack Astor’s. Also, mind you I used to manage at Jack Astors. This was all so shocking and sad to see. She said the kitchen would not allow her to sub a Cesar salad in for a side veg on our classic steak and mash. So I tested her and said okay . Then said she’d check and came back in less than 30 seconds to say it was okay. Clearly pretending to go to the kitchen in an attempt to persuade us to change our order Waited 40 minutes after ordering a medium rare steak, to be told they were out of 7oz and we’d be getting a New York. Also it’s the kitchens fault as the just told the server. Not buying it 5 minutes later manager comes by and says no steaks in house. Apologizes says they’ll pay for the meal and we order a burger and butter chicken to replace. Then he be brings two salmons over 15 minutes later. We say we didn’t order salmon and he just says “oh okay” and walks away. At 9pm another couple came by who had been watching us and told us we should just leave. We did Worst service. So upset that Jacks Astor’s Kingston ruined our night

    Visited Kingston for Canada Day weekend from Toronto. We heard that the rooftop patio was awesome so decided to book a table for four. Reviews read from previous customers experiences were considered when booking. I don’t put a lot of faith in others reviews and am a gambler at heart...not!! Table was ready when we arrived and we were immediately seated on rooftop patio at 7 pm. Our server was by far the most awesome server ON THE PLANET!! Sabrina was fun, efficient and attentive, not to mention absolutely drop-dead stunning!!! Meals were timely served and all was excellent despite the fact the entire restaurant was packed!! I have zero negative feedback!! We’ll be back!!

    The lack of sunshade / umbrella was unbearable like you would see in a very cheap terrace. For this reason we didn't take an aperitif / appetizer and have taken the dessert and coffee somewhere else. We were 6 adults and a teenager so make the math...

    We have eaten there a few times and generally were happy with our meals. We wanted a rooftop patio seat and while we did get one, there was very little shade, so we had to move downstairs to the indoor part of the restaurant. More shade would greatly add to the experience. One of the meals was not satisfactory, as it was “soggy” and was supposed to be crispy. They did take it off the bill without any prompting, which was great. The service was good. The rest of the food was good as well. I would recommend Jack Astor’s Kingston as it is usually a pretty good place to eat and has a great view of downtown Kingston from the rooftop patio.

    The service for the 10 of us was terrible. The waiter was frazzled forgetful and totally stressed out. First drink orders took 25 minutes and second round was 30 minutes. The food was great...well presented. The waiter continued to blame the influx of customers. But Thursdsy night ...what do you expect.

    It was our daughter’s university graduation and there was a problem with the tablet when our was placed and our order wasn’t received by the kitchen, then general manager made a point of coming to our table to advise us of this and apologize repeatedly. At the end of it she came back and apologized again and took care of our daughter’s meal as well as the 2 apps we had! The crab and lobster dip AMAZING!!! This was no fault of the server or the staff but technology! The only thing missed was being asked if I collected Scene Points....so I missed out on those:(. Overall great food, great service! We will return for date night. Thank you for being a part of making our daughter’s graduation day very special!!
