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.

    We had an awesome experience at Jack’s! The food is amazing for a chain, much better than other restaurants at Centrum. Great value as well, portions were large and we all had our meals and a drink for under $150 for 4 people. We all really enjoyed our meals and our servers were so attending and kind. Very pleasant staff! We will be back :)

    Server was very friendly , busy Friday night so drink and food were slow coming but overall very satisfied. Noticed quite a difference in pricing since the last time we were there but realize it’s all over.

    Although our party of 4 went on a Saturday night, we didn't expect to have to shout to hear each other in a restaurant area after 8pm (measured 70 db). There was no IPA beer. No specialty coffee. 2 of main course meals unavailable. We were told by the waitree not to order the coffee...to go to Starbucks.

    I went there before a show at the Canadian Tire Centre. Fast service, tasty foods and our waitress was great. Before to see a show or a game, it’s the place to be.

    Our server was fantastic! Didn't just talk to you when you are paying your bill, but engaged with us throughout our meal. I do find it a bit noisy especially since it wasn't packed but I could still here my friends fine so that's really just a personal note. Overall, it was very good!

    We went for a date night, the first in a couple years. The service was great and food was delicious. Sure, Jack Asters is a chain restaurant but didn’t have cheap reheated food you’d come to expect.

    We ordered the Mushroom Truffle Cheeseburger and the Thai Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry Bowl. Burger was super messy (and we couldn't find our server to get extra napkins) and one of the patties was undercooked so I didn't even eat it. The chicken in the stir fry was HARD! Both dishes were very disappointing. And so was the service. Our server never came back to check on us after bringing us our meals. Next time we saw her was when we were able to flag her down to get our bill. That is 2 disappointing dinners at Jack Astor's in a week. Don't think we will be rushing back there for a while. It's too bad because my family and friends used to love this place!

    It looks like they got a new menu, and unfortunately, we were a bit underwhelmed :(. We ordered a salad and a new chicken sandwich, neither of which were great. The salad wasn't as described on the menu, and most of the lettuce was starting to rust, so not the freshest. The sandwich was ok, but nothing too exciting. My daughter loved her chicken fingers from the kids menu :). The service was very friendly, and their new app was prettly slick (ordering refills on our own, and paying directly).

    Called ahead to ask if their patio was dog friendly and were told yes and made a reservation. Showed up and were told we had to tie up our four month old puppy 20feet away off the the side of the patio. This is not what I call dog-friendly and we certainly weren’t tying our french bulldog pup off the patio and out of our site. Disappointing as any other options were booked up by this time on a Saturday evening and we were traveling so our options were also limited.

    Food was just ok Bill was expensive for quality My steak was mostly fat Our male server was very nice But others brought our food and just dropped and ran off So and we kept having to ask for things Like salt and pepper, ketchup, And at one point I asked for dressing on my balsamic dressing for my salad and was brought greek dressing. We made a reservation and checked in with hostess We were seated next kitchen so it was high traffic area, noises area and also near take out area and bathrooms Then when I got home I rec’d an email on open table saying we never showed up for our reservation?

    Glad to see waiters with masks. It was great to eat outside at a restaurant! My steak frites well done was not impressive. Steak was a small piece-not cut in strips like it should be. As a result it was far too well done. Other two meals were good.

    Jack Astor’s is my favourite, good service, great food, fair price & great atmosphere. Milestones is also great with a more elegant atmosphere. Whispers on Richmond Road, Ottawa is a fabulous restaurant/pub, friendly atmosphere, great service, good food and nice place to meet with your friends. Then of course Busters Bar & Grill, in Kanata , good food, great open space atmosphere, to watch sports and wonderful staff. Giovanni Italian restaurant , in little Italy. Fabulous

The food was all good, this is my 8 year old daughters favorite restaurant and one of my husband and Is favorite as well. Overall very good experience
