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!

This is a good place to grab after-dinner drinks in a nice atmosphere. The location on John St. works well as it is in range of several downtown establishments. I had a job candidate in town and we had eaten dinner on Queen St. He expressed interest in grabbing a beer before going back to the hotel. Not being sure... More

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)

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
