“Good food good service but.....”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Very efficient meet and greet but waiters and waitresses work really hard while several greeters just stand around the till not helping. Food good, service good. The only downside was the horrible smell of disinfectant or an overpowering air freshener which spoiled things and made me leave earlier than I would have done.

“Much better experience”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

I made another visit over the Easter Holidays to Jack and was met with a much better reception. Our waitress I think her name was Sara was amazing. She was new however she went about and asked what she didn't know. She did an awesome job. I ordered the shrimp pasta and it was fantastic. I enjoyed this experience. I most definitely will visit again

“Busy Toronto Sports Bar”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

My partner and I had lunch at Jack Astor's during my first visit to Yonge-Dundas Square. We were seated quickly and met with a happy waitress. It was quite busy which was to be expected in this area, with the inside giving off a superficial, commercial sporty atmosphere.

I chose the Texas Roadkill Chicken Sandwich with poutine (my first time trying Canada's iconic poutine). Didn't have to wait long before our meals arrived at our table. I hated the poutine and only had a couple of bites - it was far too sickly, rich and soggy for my liking. The chicken sandwich was filled with an unsual combination of flavours I wasn't used to (having come from Australia) but it was alright. Maybe it was my jet lag but I was unable to finish it.

No doubt a good place if you're into sports and after a few drinks with mates. I probably won't be back here for another meal.

On a recent trip to Toronto we treated ourselves to a trip to Jack Astor's (at Younge & Dundas). The service was fantastic, the atmosphere was what one would equate with a sports bar but the food...the food was incredible. We both had steak and they were cooked perfectly. I also started with the cheese/garlic bread...it was so good. We ended up going back again a few days later and experienced the same great service and food. Highly recommended.

“Fun Place”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Even though it was very busy after the ball game, it was a fun place to grab a bite to eat and a cold beverage. Will go back again next time we're in town
