Always difficult to write a review for a restaurant chain. Jack Astor's falls into the "casual" food category, serving mainly sandwiches, burgers and basic dishes (noodle bowls, pasta) and a few larger entrees. It is not "fancy" but they do put a few twists on classics. So if you are looking for a gourmet place - Jack Astor's will definitely... More

Ate in the dining room last Saturday with some friends. Had the famous chicken fingers. Good flavours but found the portion a little small for the price. Service was great. I will go back.

The service was quick today at lunch. This chain has a good menu with something for everyone. The waiter was friendly and helpful. Try the smiling Buddha salad for lunch. It's great and healthy too.

The atmosphere here was great for our dinner out. The music and noise level wasn't too loud and we were able to carry out conversations without yelling/shouting at each other Food was as we expected, the service was good - personable, attentive, and quick. We noticed that the hostess wrote the time we were seated on the paper "tablecloth" so... More

We had not been to a Jack Astor's restaurant in a long time. One opened a lot closer to our house so we decided to try it. It also offered great parking. The staff is super friendly and attentive, and we were quickly seated. For starters we ordered Asian Nachos, it was better than the menu described. The plate arrived... More

We were a large group of 11. We were seated quickly and the service was very good and staff friendly. Our two children (and some grown ups!) loved the crayons to doodle! Our food was prompt and very fresh, I had a spiced chicken dish which was cooked and presented beautifully. We all enjoyed our meals and left nothing on... More

Let me start by saying this was the worse dining experience I have had in a long time. First impressions were great very busy great deco and great menu. Kids menu had some interesting choices not just the regular burger/fries , chicken fingers/fries. There was a steak option which one of our kids ordered. The drinks arrived quickly and another...

Took my two youngest kids (aged 11 & 14) here tonight. Service was good, food was tasty and affordable. Kids love drawing on the table, too. I had Indian Curry (very good) and the kids had a burger and fajitas. $75 all in for the three of us.
