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’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.

We all tried the new Cheesy menu. A couple of us tried the cheesy burger which includes a deep fried provolone cheese patty on top of the burger. Another ate the grill cheese chicken sandwich. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. It was difficult to takes the burger over the cheese but I would say that is a bad thing. Definitely have to go back again before this cheesy menu disappears.

Got a phone call from Jack Astors day before reservation telling me that Open Table should not have accepted reservations for a Saturday night. Both you and tthe restaurant should get your s#!#!t together.

We had a great meal. When paying the bill i gave a voucher which in turn the waitress showed me on an i pad what the amount would be but never gave me a hard copy. She said our table was closed out and could not produce a copy for us.

I paid with a business card and kinda needed a receipt

Good food and good value; service fast at outset but then we had to ask for the bill (twice), then the machine to pay the bill.

Darcy, new waiter did amazing! It was his first day and I believe we were his first clients. He was very pleasant, super friendly and very knowledgeable about the food/drinks. After working downtown for 10years and attending this location many times...I gotta say this was the first time it was a wonderful experience because of Darcy.

Was greeted by a really up beat host and our server was on top of our order and not annoying at all. The place was packed but service was quality and quick!

We had tried to book JA on Dundas Square but were unable to get a Saturday evening reservation. This one was further away on Front Street but the place was very busy when we arrived. Excellent burgers and a very varied choice on the rest of the menu if you don't have a preference for burgers. Service also very good. Would definitely eat here again when in Toronto.

I have to be honest with you in that, for me and several other colleagues , the music is simply too loud. I frequently went to the dartmouth crossing location in Nova Scotia but have stopped going over the noise level. I took some out of town business colleagues one evening as well and it was too loud that evening as well. They all commented on it and have chosen not to return again, going to Moxies instead in the same location. That has meant just with our group that gets together the night before two days of meetings 4 times year that a lost opportunity for 4x$600 spends. My inlaws will not go either anymore as well. I know you want to appeal to the younger generation but when everyone comments that Jack Astors is so loud and can we go somewhere else , I believe you need to rethink the music volume you you keep.
Best regards
Tim

Went to the restaurant for take out, when I was about to receive my food the female bartender had a concern with the food, but the male bartender said who cares it's take out. When I got the food it was cold and I don't believe it was Jack asstors food as I ordered a burger and received a double patty burger that tasted like fast food. This experience should have been reported to upper management

The chicken fingers are really good but not sure why they charge so much for wing sauce on the side. We had a high table booth on this trip and it was really uncomfortable. Food is reliable and good and staff always accommodating.

The server was excellent and really on point about making sure I was okay and I was happy with everything even though it was just me and I was by myself. She steered me away from something on the menu that could have wound up leaving me dissatisfied when I asked a couple of questions and we settled on a much better alternative. For what it is Jack Astor’s is a tad bit expensive but it’s still good food. It’s noisy but that’s to be expected on a Friday night after 8. Will definitely be returning.

The food was great, the service was good too but unfortunately I did not realize until I got home that my child was charged the adult meal vs the child meal. Unfortunately I live uptown and was only down for the Raptors game otherwise I would have gone back to complain. It's a great hot spot that's for sure and if I ever come back down for an event I will definitely return.

Staff are always pleasant but sometimes hit or miss: not enough attention or too much attention. Food is pricey but consistent and they do have the best chicken fingers!
