“BAD Service, good food”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We were seated right away as the restaurant was not busy, had our drink orders taken and delivered, ordered our food, and proceeded to wait...and wait...and wait...after 30 minutes of not being able to flag our server (and seeing tables that were seated after us get their food, finish, and leave) we were finally approached by the manager (I think), he apologized, didn't know what had happened except that maybe our food had been delivered to another table, then promised to take care of us and said our food would be out probably in 3-4 minutes. 10-12 minutes later our food arrived, the food was hot and tasted very good. True to his word, the manager took care of us. Usually a good restaurant, this situation was possibly a fluke, but wanted to pass our experience along.

“First time there!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was our first time at Jack Astor's, we really enjoyed it. Our waitress was excellent, she explained the items on menu and offered suggestions and answered all of our questions. Nice restaurant and atmosphere. We would definitely return!

“Excellent service, atmosphere and food.”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

This was my first time to a Jack Astors.

I wouldn't say that your going to walk away 'stuffed' from your 13-14$ meal, but the service is fab, the place is clean, the décor is interesting, and the atmosphere is superb !

Our waitress (Holly) was excellent, there was no waiting / asking for anything ... she was on the ball !

I'd certainly go back ... maybe to try the yummy club house that everybody else had !

“Great place for a burger and a beer.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

This seems like your normal run of the mill chain restaurant when you first arrive, but I have to say the food here is amazing. One of the best burgers I've had,
The beer is cold, the servers are on top of things and price is reasonable. Will be back.

“Great taste... small portions”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Good food, but the portions seem to be getting smaller. They no longer serve the warm red velvet cake... that is very disappointing. it was the best dessert item. Great service
