The usual lunch fare, plus some unusual choices.

we enjoyed lunch at Jack Astor's , my friend had the original burger with fries, it was pipping hot and he had no complaints, i had the chicken sandwich, topped with arugula ,red onions, goat cheese, aolio,( tastes like garlic mayo) served on a warm bun and a plentiful side of hot yummy fries.

Stopped in for a quick lunch at Jack Astor's. So many choices in the Centrum Mall with many restaurants in the same block and now I wonder why I haven't eaten here more often. The chicken sandwich with goat cheese was awesome and believe it or not, so were the fries. Yes, the fries were extra tasty. Our waitress actually... More

Our first time here in many years, and we were pleased with our experience. The restaurant ambience was very pleasant, with warm, cozy lighting and colourful and witty chalkboard paintings hanging throughout. Our server, Charlotte, was very pleasant, and easily able to answer any questions we had regarding the menu. We started with the cheese pan bread ($5.33), which was... More

This property needs a lot of work. The noise level from the bar is excessive and at times makes normal conversation difficult. The staff are interested in up-selling even when the signals from the patrons suggest the opposite. The meals, while well presented, are at best mediocre in taste and represent anything but good, let alone fair value

First visit was very loud, cold food, inattentive service. My complaint drew an apology and a promise to send a certificate to try again. The certificate took several weeks to arrive, and then expired within a couple of weeks after that, which I discovered as I prepared to use it the day after it expired, which was yesterday. Unimpressive.

Great food was received by 4 guests. Service was a little slow but it was a Friday night so this may have been a factor. Soups are TRULY flavorful unlike most restaurants. They are not afraid to shock the bland minded. I would definitely go back.

Loud music, partially cold food and slow service at a large celebratory gathering. I complained, the manager asked me to give them another chance. Hence the 'average,' rating. I will re rate when that happens. Not rating for families or couples as music volume made conversation difficult. $$$ is high midrange.

Was a great visit on the patio today. Clean surroundings. Away from the street and parking lot. No smog from cars.
