Always a good time with friendly staff and a great lively atmosphere. Volume is right and I always feel like they want me to come back and visit them again.

It took forever to get a table, altogeth it was cleaned and unoccupied we waited forever to be finally seated. Food was boring, waiter was not around a lot and asked us Odd questions.

I recently went for the first time to Jack Astor's with a group of people who often go there - they of course liked the food, while I found the food average. I had an ok Avocado dip, but my chicken fingers were tasteless. Also,service was quite slow. My friends will return, I will not.

A little bit of a wait as it was crowded on both patios. Chilly patio night but inside was way too hot! Always a fun place to hang-out. Our waitress was fun/cheerful/always smiling/very accommodating. Our food was timely & delish; way too stuffed for dessert but I really wanted to try the cookie/brownie (great choice). Long time friends time to... More

This is a very trend & happening bar on John Street in the Entertainment district in Toronto. Great staff - warm, professional and friendly as well as a very hip crowd makes this bar one of the funkiest I visited. It is a beautiful building with a very nice outside seating area with pretty flowers. Recommended!

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 about... 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.
