Dark atmosphere..service was just ok

We went here as a family. When we first walked in it seems like they kind of hesitated to approach us. Anyhow, they did and we requested a booth...she said hold on, let me check and see. So we waited a bit, she came back and said there is nothing available!! We asked if she was sure and what... read more

I've been to this location many times and can always count on great food and service. Our experience was great! I ordered a gluten free bun for my burger and was brought out a regular, gluttonous one (the gluten free one has both poppy and sesame seeds on it while the regular one only has sesame seeds). Our waiter quickly... More

Jack Astor's on John Street is a good choice for a meal or a drink. The servers are friendly and the food comes to the table in good time. The menu offers a good range of selections and the prices are reasonable. It is conveniently located near the Scotia Bank Cineplex on Richmond.

Visited on Boxing Day and they were out of everything. No wings, no chocolate milk, no bananas for the split. I ended up with the lobster crab dip and it just wasn't that good. My son's chicken fingers were good but not plentiful. Service was good though.

Had a meal on thanksgiving at this establishment. Only to find a cockroach in the bathroom after dinner. Notified an employee she acted as is this was normal for the restaurant. So I notified the manager and he confirmed that there haven't been any in over A YEAR. Then he offered me a coupon to come back to eat and... More

We stumbled across this place by accident. We were greeted by very friendly staff who showed us to our booth (which was perfect because we were tired from walking around all morning). Great atmosphere in this place as well. With lots of small things to see and do (funny signs on the wall, drawing on the paper table cover etc).... More

Poor service, food very salty and overcharged on the bill. Had to get it fixed twice. Been to the Jack Astors on Dixon Rd near the Pearson Airport and the food and service was much better. Put us right off going back or trying another Jack Astors

Food was excellent. They were very busy but we were served quickly and with a smile. Lots of TV's to watch sports. I really enjoyed my experience!
