“Consistent quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Quality of this restaurant was just as good as other Jack Astors I've been to. Was pleased with service and quality of food. Only thing I didn't like was that I could see part of the kitchen area and the floor was disgustingly filthy. That really changed the appeal of this location. Not sure that I would visit this location again based on this.

“Service great, food surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We have been visiting this restaurant since it opened. Menu is always interesting, but most importantly, the chefs deliver what the menu promises. Caesar salad one of the best around, with a ton of garlic flavour. Crispy sesame chicken is spot on... you can season the heat to taste at your table. We consider this to have the best-tasting food of any moderately-priced restaurant in the city. Menu changes frequently and the new items are interesting and delicious. Example: pulled pork sliders on a bacon biscuit... it's great! Service is always excellent. Highly recommend this place! Only downside is, there are about 1,000 tvs in the place.. if you don't like to watch sports when dining, it's hard to avoid them.

“Should have gone elsewhere!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012 via mobile

Dirty rundown and stinky. The booth I was in stank like sewage. That was the beginning, my salad with my sandwich had rusted lettus and was a turn off. The sandwhich was ok but not worth the money. The staff looked slutty and our server a guy with dark hair and moehawk smelt like a weed... Won't be back.
