“Great staff, Nice Bar, OK food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I go to Jack Astors a few times a month. It is obvious immediately that the staff are well trained, friendly and knowledgeable about their menu. I usually sit in the bar because it just has a nice feel to it. Lively, well decorated, more downtown Toronto than downtown Newmarket. In spite of all these upsides the food is the usual fare that you get at all of these mid market chain restaurants. In my opinion these restaurants all tend to blend into one another. The food is not bad, and its not great. It's just middle of the road. The burgers are OK but fries are the cheap frozen kind. Plenty of dishes using high fat to get a flavour boost. Starters are the best thing on the menu. I think this restaurant really shines as a place to go for families with kids. Kids are treated well by the staff and seem to have fun there. They also won't be too critical of the food. I still go once in a while but mostly I just have a pint and an appetizer and leave. They have a good selection of draft beer and even get some new choices once in a while. In regards to food you can do a better at some of the lesser known restaurants in the area.

“Group of 12 with 4 kids”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Great service from the team at Jack Astor's in Newmarket. A large group with kids to contend with and we were all served quickly and efficiently and all at the same time. I absolutely loved my chicken club with sweet potato fries and I had the brownie in a cookie for desert. The cookie part was actually better than the brownie part but it was still very delicious!

I am dissapointed that they took the butter chicken off the menu - but I will stll go to Jack Astor's. So much great selection of food and great service.

“good food, great service”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

They did a nice job with our entire team...we were all fed at the same time and in a reasonable time. There were a lot of choices for a variety of tastes. Everyone said their food was good. We would definitely go back again.
