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.

Went for dinner while staying in Kanata on business. We like Jack Astor's and usually have a good experience in each restaurant, including this one in the past. This time we found the staff to be a little off, very little smiling, lacking in personality. We were shown to our table and basically just dumped there. Our waiter had no... More

Really enjoyed our birthday dinner for 8 at Jack Astors in Kanata last night. Everyone enjoyed their entree and drinks. The decor is outstanding and new. It is set up so that each table has a certain degree of privacy and you seem to have a waiter on call for the evening. When the homemade fries for one of our... More

Went here once for lunch and their quesadilla special was way better than I expected. Delicious food and great service!

A friend and I stopped by for lunch the other day. I've eaten there a few times and always enjoyed my meal, as did everyone else. The first time I ever went I had the Fish and Chips and it was delicious. So decided to go with it again. It looked great and the piece was very big, BUT when... More

Been here many, many times and the staff are friendly and quick to serve you. The lunch menu items are a very good price and always arrive quickly as well. It gets crowded during Friday and weekend dinner hours so expect a wait during those times, but that's just a testament to the delicious food and great service. Will keep... More

We arrived mid-week for an early evening dining experience and found the restaurant next to empty and not loud at all. We were promptly served by a perky young waitress named Shannon who proceeded to take our drink order and explain the menu options. The drinks took a while to arrive as our waitress had to attend some sort of... More

Hi andy.karla! Thanks a bunch for sharing your great dining experience! I'm so sorry you had to wait a little longer for your drinks, and hope you found them extra refreshing once they arrived.

The cajun chicken sandwich was good, not to spicy as requested. The menu isn't overwhelming with choices however still hard to choose which meal to try. Waitress and all other wait staff work together to ensure your table has everything ~ water glass getting low they just bring another without having to request, it is a nice change.
