Jack Astor's Bar and Grill 133 John street Toronto.Went here for a meal. Three of us had meals and drinks . I have to say it's wasn't the best. One person got fish and chips no garnish nothing, fish was grey, dry, tasteless and in no way hot. Another got chicken fingers and chips, tasteless again. I had a veggie... More

But what we enjoyed the most was the Lobster & Crab Dip. Can highly recommend and will go there again (not only for the free tea and 3 free cokes we got)

Good location, cute atmosphere, especially the entertaining t-shirts! Our server, (146146 - didn't get his name but it's his ID on our receipt.

Didn't expect much going into Jack Astors but was very impressed. Went Aug 2 2014 and was served by Mike. He was very outgoing and was really good at his job. I ordered the chicken and goat cheese sandwich with fries and it was amazing! Definitely will order it again.

Hubby and I ate there for dinner our first night in Toronto. He had poutine with BBQ pork and I had chicken tenders with fries - both were very good. We sat outside and asked for a quiet table and they were very accommodating. A bit on the expensive side for pub grub - probably cause hubby had a couple... More

Went here last night with a friend before we went to see a movie. They changed our server about 6 times. Food was overpriced for what you get. We tried the new appetizer dip selection, the baba gnoush (sorry think I spelled that wrong) and guacamole were great, but the French onion bacon dip was horrid. My friend ordered fish... More

The food was good as were the drinks. We ordered an appetizer that came after we received our mains. Then I ran out of plum sauce and asked for more. It took almost 10 minutes. By then my food was cold. Not a good experience.

We stopped in after shopping and before a concert on Valentine's day. The waiter was very friendly and so was the other guy who brought the drink my sister requested from the bar, that they had never heard of but quite willingly made. Tara has the fajita as always and it didn't have enough sauce on the chicken. I tried... More
