We recently went to Jack Astor's for a late lunch after seeing a movie.
We had lots of restaurants to choose from and decided on Jack's as something different.
Were we glad we did!
We had the homemade burgers with classic poutine - they were fantastic!! So much flavour and a good size.
We originally thought they were kind of pricey, but worth every penny.....delicious!
Our server - Pat - was a delight too.
Great experience.
Oh, and don't forget to try the sparkling limeade - I had two glasses of it!!

We have been to Jack Astor's many times, sometimes alone and other times with our adult children and grandchildren. We are rarely disappointed. The service is outstanding and they are all very friendly. The food isn't always up to snuff so be careful what you order. Their wings are tasty and they are known for their bruschetta bread.

Good
Lots of choice on the menu.
Friendly, prompt and appreciative service.
Good for families.
Of particular note -- I took off my silver and mother-of-pearl ring in the ladies' washrooms to wash my hands... left it there, and hours later managed to get it back -- was handed in! Thank you honest JA customer -- whoever you are -- and JA staff!
Consistent experience.
Had an issue with one dish (nothing major) which was quickly and completely rectified -- good for them.

Could do better:
Is it just me, or are portions getting smaller? Plates have got smaller -- seems like a smaller meal.
Can be quite noisy - with music and crowds - fine if you don't mind.
Lineups on Fridays and Saturdays due to many, if not most Jack Astors being adjacent to cinemas -- and no reservations allowed.

We were recently treated to a wonderful dinner experience at this establishment. The servicer was very cordial and efficient with our orders. The food arrived at the perfect time, enabling us to enjoy our beverages before the meals arrived. The food orders were perfect in size and temperature. It was all good, but perhaps a little noisey for an intimate meal. Great get together place for family events.
