We came here prior to seeing a recent Sens hockey game. While the number of patrons waiting to get seated appeared to be large, ie busy nite, the management of getting people seated was well done. Nice variety of menu options. Service at the table was friendly and quick. Meal was well prepared and tasty. Again overall management and staff... More

I have been to this Jack's before and always enjoyed it, we arrived during the evening rush and service was never an issue. Started with the cheesy garlic bread then made our own sharing platter. The very friendly waiter suggested some things not on the menu like a sauce made with hot sauce and honey the staff enjoy. We also... More

We were a group of 14 people on a business lunch. I had not been to the restaurant in a couple of years. Have to say we all enjoyed our lunch. The food was a bit slow in coming out, but the taste was great. Would definitely go again.

Just got turned down a drink after just walking down, and after an incredibly bad day, because my eyes are apparently red. Sorry, I have emotions and was completely sober. Total insult. Will never go back.

We were invited as a guest by a good friend. Prior to this visit our last visit had been awful. We went back hoping it has improved. Hard to believe, but even worse than the last time. The Server: Useless and lied. Waited forever for our drinks (more than 15 mins) then she came to the table -without our drinks,... More

We are regular patrons of Jack Astors and love their food, their service and love that we can play hangman on their paper table cloths with crayons. We probably eat there 2 times a month. The service is always great. Well yesterday must have been just a bad day for them. I certainly hope so otherwise I will never go... More

My wife and I both enjoyed our meals and the service at Jack Astor's. She had their fresh made Chicken Fingers and I had the Chicken Parm w/ Bowtie noodles. Both of us really enjoyed our food and Jack's own rootbeer. Our server was excellent and made us feel welcome. Definitely would go back!

Went for lunch husband and me. I had salad, soup and garlic bread. Salad a little sad, soup not hot enough and garlic bread too fatty. Husband had chicken burger and chips - mediocre. Price of food too high for what delivered.

We went for dinner as a group of four but did not have reservations. There was only a short wait before we got a table. The place had good ambiance and I enjoyed the décor. I found the music a bit loud - just on the edge of interfering with our conversation. We all enjoyed our meals - they were... More
