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 fantastic local brews.

Not big on change? Don’t worry! Juggy the Bartender is still here! Plus we kept the same great food that made us special- like our chicken fingers, which we’re pretty sure creates champions! Just ask Wendel Clark, Ben Johnson, Trish Stratus and Milos Raonic. They’ve been eating our chicken fingers for years. Who knows where they’d be without the Jack Astor’s balanced diet?

Get your butt down here right now!

I love Jack Astors it's usually my go to because no matter what location I am at the food taste/quality is pretty consistent. This experience was one of my lesser ones. The service was slightly slower than usual, we had a time restraint as it was a work lunch and it just wasnt as quick as we would of liked. The food was great once is arrived so that's always good!

I like jack astors. Decent food, decent prices. Drinks could use some work but one thing I have noticed with jack astors as this is now the third time this has happened at different locations so not sure if it’s their training but they always deliver their entrees before you are finished your appetizers!!! And even when you tell them nicely that “wow, that was fast, we are not even finish our appetizers” they don’t seem to care. Now I hate eating cold food so you either have to not finish your apps to eat your hot entree or eat a lukewarm entree in order to finish your apps. Depending on my mood, I would tell them to take it back but didn’t this time. So managers, train your staff to gauge when to bring out the entrees not when the apps are half eaten!!!!!!

Typically I go to jack astors and never have an issue. Unfortunately, that was not the case this time. Our appetizers came out at the exact same time as our entrees. Even after we confirmed with our waiter that it would be before. The drinks we ordered were not what was brought out. It seemed as if our waiter was annoyed by us requiring so much. My fajita wraps were soggy and my meat was overdone. The person who had steak mentioned his steak which he had requested rare was well done.

The people I was with flew in from out of province and I’m terribly upset that I brought them to Jack Astor’s for a meal. Next time. I will be choosing any other restaurant.

Once a decent choice for family dinner, the revised menu (around mid 2018?) and overall food quality is disappointing.

Due to its convenient location and crowd-pleasing franchise-esque menu, I still "recommend" it - not for its dining experience, but as a good choice for group meetups.

Seven orders placed - all seven needed to be returned - salmon was overcooked and steaks were undercooked, despite we specified how we wanted the food cooked. Avocado, served with the salmon, was hard and green. People could have gotten sick with the meat. The bruschetta appetizer had very soft cheese instead of feta cheese and was very sloppy to eat.

Wine glasses came out dirty, and the table was not set with the correct number of utensils sets despite our reservation. Our waiter was too busy.

Very disappointed. Waste of time and money. Ruined a special birthday occasion.

I felt so upset, I booked the 8:30Pm on the “open table”. When I arrived there 8:25Pm, the lady told me that they gave me call and no answer, so they gave the table to the others. In fact, I did not received any call. Then she gave me a bar table with no TV And that day was the champion day. It's very narrow, just enough for one person. So we left. We just stay at home and watch Tv. So bay day.

I could not believe how attentive the two bartenders were as I came in a a single. They gave great advice and followed through to make sure everything was good. I will book a hotel nearby again just so I can come back

Jack Astor's has cut cost too deep. We ordered a cheese and bacon burger, it was extremely tiny as compared to half a year ago. We also ordered the steak fajitas, the steak was tasteless and portion was much smaller than when we visited half a year ago.

Our waiter Rob was great! Great service! He actually proactively asked if anyone was having a birthday. Which the answer was yes. Drinks and food all came out with good timing And we didn’t have to wait long for our check.

Birthday
Went for a birthday and watch the leafs. Good evening. Had the calamari (could have been better) bruschetta was great. The bacon burger and the buffalo chicken wings were amazing. Fries could have been fresh cut.

I have ordered a medium steak...the steak turn up to be medium well. The fried onion that comes with the steak is greasy and cold. The beans are not trimmed and they are very undercook. Probably the worst steak i have ever had in my life. I went there at 1:30pm...maybe the chef went home? I prefer moxie’s or the keg.
I have also ordered a ceaser salad, its okay. Lobster dip is good.

My son always chooses Jack Astor’s when we get a special lunch date together - he’s 5! I appreciate that you allow me to order “all flats” for my wings and he likes the Orange Sorbet included in the kids meal. We were in a rush to see a show and our servers got us in and out without delay.

I haven't been to Jack Astor's in years. The menu seemed to have shrunk, which I think it a good thing because I remember it was like, 10 pages long. My friend ordered the quesadillas and I had the fried chicken sandwich. The quesadillas were a bit on the small size (i'm mindful that it was considered an appetizer, but it was a bit pricey for the portion size). The fried chicken sandwich tasted delicious, although i wasn't a fan of the bun, as it wasn't soft and kept falling apart. Service was a bit slow but we weren't in a rush so it was fine for us. We had the brownie dessert and it was good.

Made reservations for 7 people for 1 (indicated two children). On arrival, ignored for at least 5 minutes - then advised they had to get the table ready?? Our table located right outside the kitchen and right next to a very large group. Noise was ridiculous - we couldn't even speak and my chair was continuously bumped by staff and patrons trying to get by. Waited almost an hour for food - had a 5 and 3 year old waiting for lunch. Not acceptable. Server did best he could however should have had more staff on given the number of groups in the restaurant. Not the best experience for the price. This was a birthday celebration for the 5 year old and didn't feel we celebrated properly given we had no room to visit and because of the activity could barely talk to one another.

i ordered the salmon and asked for it to be cooked medium. it was over cooked and dry. the description included a jalapeno butter which was bland. it was truly an unremarkable dish. my companion had a salad that looked decent and was a better option.

Service was a little spotty. One minute our server was there and then next gone. Hard to enjoy a meal when you can’t find your server to get your bill.

Can’t go wrong with Jack’s for a casual non-fussy dinner out. There’s something on the menu for everyone and the service is always consistently good.

Small portions for the price. Fries are the frozen type not fresh made, at least they taste like that. Place was not busy yet our server was running ragged as he tried to serve a large scattered it seemed, area. We sat in both, very tight fit between table and seat. A little to snug.

we went out - 4 friends for 6 o'clock Saturday dinner. Overall it was not bad, our waiter Justin was outstanding, very precise and attentive. The food was OK, but my friend's Caesar Salad was soggy - she did not eat more than 2 spoons/forks. Justin removed it from the bill after we mentioned it, even though we did not ask. Appetizers were the best: Golden Calamari and Lobster & Crab Dip. My friend's special Hogg Burger was very dry - I regret he did not mention, we could've asked to change it to another dish. Also were the fried onions, and whatever else was in it he said. My Con Carne Tacos were ok, a bit too small. ANother friend ordered chicken wings, he was ok with his order. After 7 they got super busy but it looked like the servers did their best and there was a happy buzz.
