The food on their summer menu is amazing! So many good choices it was hard to choose! We all really enjoyed our food! It wasn't very busy on a Monday night, but we had great attentive service.

Hi Amanda6218, Thanks a bunch for your feedback! I'm happy to hear you like our new summer menu! If you haven't tried them already, I highly recommend the Bombay Chicken Skewers - it brings our famous chicken fingers to a whole new level of flavor. See you back soon, Darce L, Jack Astor's Marketing More

My hubby and I like to go out for dinner most Friday's. Jack Astor's has become our favourite . We enjoy trying different items from their very extensive menu but we do have our favourites! My favourite is the Buffalo Chicken Cob salad while my hubby frequently enjoys the fish and chips. We tried the Asian Nachos last week and... More

We liked this place. Our waitress was helpful and friendly. The food was good and plentiful. I had a burger that was very good. From where I was sitting I had a view of the kitchen. I was mesmerized. Watching the very busy chefs prepare many dishes. Wow can they move and without bumping into each other. They know what... More

Hi Paulette! Thank you so much for sharing your great dining experience. I'm glad you enjoyed watching our chefs do their kitchen dance! They use just the right moves to make sure you get the perfect meal every time! And who can dance without some great tunes? We like to keep the music bump'n because it's always a party at... More

Dropped by for a late meal and ordered the brie burgers with caesar salads. Hoping for good, turned out to be excellent. Happy surprise. Will return. Highly recommend. Oh, and the server was first rate, fast, efficient, courteous and personable! Doesn't get any better than that.

six friends tried this place last year and found it was just ok not a thing to right home about. service was fast at first then slowed down after our order was taken. We waited 30 minutes for food and the place was not full. For us we would not go back at this time.

We had supper here one evening. Between us, we had some wings, the toffee ones. Don't knock them until you try them. I had a Caesar salad, a little too much lemon for my preference, but it was okay. I didn't finish it. And we had a poutine which was good. Definitely better than our last visit.
