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. Our Band of Chefs are influenced by a wide variety of tastes and have travelled across the globe to gain inspiration.

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.

Not sure why JA got such a high rating. It was our first visit at Newmarket location, which brought us a big disappointment.
Too noisy. Too dirty. Uncomfortable atmosphere. Stakes were simply mediocre, dry and unchewable. Ordered well done, came almost medium. Signature cocktail didn't seem to contain any alcohol, but was sweet and tasty.
For the pros, the girl serving us was nice (so 100% of the tips I left was solely her merit), waiting time was unexpectedly good despite it was a Valentine's day.

We had lunch there for my husband's birthday. The service and food was very good. My only complaint would be that the portions were quite small for the price of the food.

We go here almost every Saturday night but this week was a little off. I think it was due to our server and the location were we were seated. Also I got my favourite dessert but it was not nearly the same as usual with no explanation!!

First and foremost, don’t bother using OpenTable to book reservations. We used the app to book one and when we got there I let the girl know and yet we were not seated until after 3 other groups of people (who came in with no reservation after us) and we had to speak with them. Apparently we were supposed to get a buzzer (which we did not receive nor did we know we needed one) and in the middle of letting her know we arrived 10 minutes before our reservation she walked away from me. I feel like it would just be easier to come as a walk in on such a busy night so they don’t forget about you.

All of that aside, we LOVE coming to Jacks. It’s where we had our first date and where we come for all of our anniversary dinners. The ambiance is great. The bar side is nice and casual and a great place for drinks with friends while watching the game. The dining side is also awesome for family dinners and birthdays. The crab dip is what we get every single time without fail. It is by far the best thing on the menu! The food and service are great! Our server came by and checked on us often which was very much appreciated on such a busy night. Have us opportunity to order more drinks way ahead of time. This is my favourite place to go for a nice dinner out with family and friends.

About 5-6 hosts at front door of which only one actually found us a table, the rest didn’t seem to understand what a table for two was.
Food was nothing special, ordered pasta with chicken and steak meal. Meal did not come with everything stated on menu, had to ask for remainder of the meal. Pasta sauce has no seasoning, very bland, couldn’t even finish it.
If you’re a vegetarian, you can have bread and that’s about it, not a lot of options.

Been to this Jack Astor's many times and have always been pleased with the service and food. The selection of beers both craft and mainstream is lengthy. My daughter's favorite restaurant where she'll eat pretty much anything on the kids menu. She's always on the lookout for Hailey and Ashley, her favorite servers!

server didn't provide any utensils - app came and still no knife and fork - had to ask another server for them. Poutine with meal was cold - not worth it for the $5 upgrade. Food mostly cold, probably sitting on the counter waiting to be served for a while.

Awesome as usual love Jacks! No surprises. Full menu with lots of exciting options. It surely is a neighbouhood gem. Nice to be able to walk to. I come here all the time. Its nice that it caters to all ages and if you want a more adult experience can sit in the bar. Love the seating with all the booths! I love them comfy and kinda private. Servers are always very friendly and upbeat. No surly waiters and staff. Great welcome upin arrival too.
