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.

OpenTable was not correct in their reservation program. I tried to book 5:45 for the day in question. It was available and then booked as I was unable to finish my response. I had two other choices 7 and 7:30. I contacted the restaurant myself to find I could definitely take a 5:45 spot. The comment from the lady at the restaurant was, gladly they’d take us. It wasn’t busy at all. To find when we got there no more than 5 tables were being used. I would suspect that others would not call and move onto another choice in restaurant, therefore Jack Astors loosing business. I feel that I would definitely call the restaurant before using opentable again. We have used this service many times in the US but not happy with this experience.

Always enjoy dining at Jack Astor’s. The food was terrific as always! 10/10 recommendation for the Buddha Salad. I would ask if they could put extras strawberries through. Try were so fresh and delicious! The best part about the Buddha salad if you are gluten sensitive, it’s gluten free and vegetarian. Im sure you could ask for it to be vegan by asking if they could remove the goat cheese.The chips and guac were fantastic too.

Our service was okay. Our sever might have been new, she asked us for our order, didn’t write it down, and than came back because she forgot our order. Once we got the food the server didn’t come back for w good amount of time to do a quality check, we were probably half was through our meal before she came back. From where we were sitting it didn’t seem like she had other tables, so not sure why it took so long for a quality check, but we also didn’t know how big her section was either. The manger did come over at the beginning of service if we have been taken care of as a well.

Fantastic experience, was great to get out for the night
Restaurant confirmed our reservation and text us to see if we wanted to eat inside or outside
Upon arrival very easy contact tracing and then seated immediately after
Out meals we’re fantastic, our waitress was great

We decided to just have four apps and they were all great. Our favorite was the bruschetta. Excellent flavor. Our server was great also.

This location has only been open for 3 days since the COVID closure bit you couldn’t tell. The service was spot on as was the food. Their takeout was crazy busy but they kept all timelines like it was a normal day. All tables were very clean and EVERY table was thoroughly cleaned between customers. Very happy

Our reservation for 6 resulted in being seated in a booth for 4. They offered to place a chair at the end of the booth which was a partial solution. Eventually, 2 of our party sat at a separate booth.

To make matters worse, our reservation was during one of the hottest heatwaves of the summer (>40 degrees with humidex) and their air conditioning was not working properly. As the restaurant continued to fill up with patrons, the heat intensified. The air blowing from the vents appeared mainly to be recirculating the already warm air in the restaurant. It was not even cool, let alone cold. When we mentioned it to the server, it was acknowledged that it wasn't working properly but no other explanation provided.

It was so uncomfortable that we ate very fast just to leave the restaurant and to return to an air conditioned car in our sweaty summer attire. We noticed that it was a bit cooler in the bar area and even on the outside patio!

We have eaten at this location in the past on cooler days and were satisfied. We will not be returning until we know their air conditioning is fixed.

Second time I've been to your establishment.
Amazing both times.
We love your cheddar beer soup, my husband and I both had it.
Our group had a couple steaks, said it was the best they ever had.
Your portions are always very generous, and you staff is one of the most friendly and attentive o have ever had the pleasure to see.
It was a little loud but it was also a Saturday night dinner service, and the place was packed.

Jack Asters is a nice place to eat. We have eaten there a lot. I have never had to reserve and thought with reserving a table we would not be stuck by the door, which is exactly where they stuck us. BY THE DOOR. There was always people coming in and out. Talking. Food was good though. I would suggest that if someone reserves early, like the day before like we did, they should have a better table.

Appetizer platter was decent, husband ordered steak which wasn’t very good, I ordered fish & chips which were overcooked. Entrees came out way too quickly, we were less than half finished our appetizers. We were there New Year’s Eve around 5:30. We were done and out the door within 45 minutes.

Unfortunately it was not a great experience. We usually go at least twice per month because of convenience but may not return after this experience.
We sat at our table for an extended period of time while 3 tables (that were seated after us) were all approached by servers and orders taken. I had to ask a server passing by to assist us.
Then our order came to the table with wrong side items items plated. Thirdly we had to ask for utensils and condiments (again waiting to start eating) and to top it off the ketchup bottle was empty!
For the cost of dinner at this restaurant for an adult and child I expect better service overall.
