Stopped by for some drinks and food on a monday night. Service was great and the food is also good, nothing different than any other Jack Astor's. Great location.

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

We stumbled into this location after a LONG walk at the Toronto Car Show. It was early in the afternoon (late for lunch), and figured to try this spot out. Upstairs with all of the screens was VERY busy because of the Canadian Olympic hockey team playing, but downstairs was a bit more sanguine. We sidled up to the bar,... More

I loved this place: the staff is kind and the food is very good. The prices are normal, with 20 bucks you have a good meal and a beer. The menu is rich: foods for every taste, from salads to hamburgers. The beer is very good.

Our first experience of a Toronto restaurant, I'm afraid the food was just not up to an acceptable standard. Starters whilst tasted nice, served just luke warm, although of course should have been hot, sent back to kitchen, replacement not much better, mains arrived before we had finished - these to were served cold (burger & chicken dishes) again sent...

It is a lively restaurant belonging to a chain. Quality of the dishes we took was rather poor. Service was very slow. Not good value for money.
