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.

Food was decent - it was a packed Saturday night so the service was expectedly slow. Overall it’s a good place to take the family for dinner. I suggest making reservations

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.

My wife and i went for dinner with our two children and although the server and overall service was good - the food on the other hand was less than satisfactory. My wife ordered a burger and it was a complete mess. The burger fell apart and was difficult to manage but worse than that it was burned over done. my wife asked for it to be cooked through as she does not like medium rare burgers but i think the cooks in the back mistook that for turning it into charcoal. We should have sent it back but my wife didn’t want to make a big deal about it. I had the wings and although i thought the getting sauced at the table part was sort of different and cool - they were soggy and had no crisp factor which is not what i am accustomed to given that i have had wings practically everywhere and really didn’t like the soggy wing. The flavor of the sauce was good so i ate them but i definitely will not order them again. I would have to say that the experience was 'OK' in the sense that it was a fun atmosphere and the kids enjoyed their food choices from the kids menu - but as far as going out of my way to go to Jack Astor's for dinner? well they may have to do something to wow me because this time around it was simply a forgettable experience to say the least

Waiter(s) admitted to dropping drinks and food. We are all human. Came fairly quickly. The one order of food that was dropped was quickly resolved too and the manager took it off our bill. That was nice.
Although a fun night because of a family birthday get together, the 'I'm a little tea cup' routine they do for the kids on the dining room chairs is a bit of a - how do I say this - silly?? Maybe for toddler girls...find another tune!!!
Server took a LONG time to come back with our bills. We wanted to leave but felt we were put to the back burner as he had to get out other tables, take drinks etc.
Manager should have stepped in to ask him if he needed assistance. A lot of runners appear to help bring out the food, but once that is over, we felt we were left sitting for a long time. Didn't they need our table?
Just a few items to tighten up.
Thank you for asking.
