This is a new Jack Astor's location....it's been open a few months. The service was prompt and our Food was excellent and hot. The food presentation was excellent with new modern style plates and bowls. We will go back here.

My buddy & I dropped into this location of Jack Astor's for lunch. I've been to a couple of their other locations and knew what to expect.

They have a huge TV screen to watch sports and other TVs scattered around the restaurant. This location also has a large patio which would be great in the summer

The food, wings and a club sandwich, was very good and our server was first rate.

I went to Jack Astor at the Pickering location celebrating a birthday. I'm absolutely disgusted and disturb. There was a major snow storm with extreme -14 temperatures. As responsible drinkers we called taxis. A couple of friends went outside to see if a taxi had arrived. The only way to see if a taxi is there is to go outside, around the corner to the parking lot. Upon returning the bouncer refused to allow them back in the doorway where myself and a few others waited. They just wanted to stand in the doorway to keep warm not go back into the actual restaurant. Not wanting confrontation and explaining that we had called the a taxi and wanted to kept warm rather than showing compassion, the bouncer decided to forcefully remove the people who had stepped outside.

We weren’t loud, obnoxious or causing any type of disturbance. There is no doubt in my mind that bouncer was looking for a fight. By simply saying he just wanted to stay warm, the bouncer grabbed my friend and tried to instigate a fight saying, "you wanna go? Do something! Do something!”. It was absolutely unnecessary. They did not want to fight. We spent a great deal of time and money and did not deserve to be thrown out on the street like that. The actions of the bouncer were completely unacceptable and negatively reflect on the establishment and the Jack Astors brand. I’m appalled that this happened at a Jack Astor and expect more from the company. The bouncer was on a power trip instead of looking out for the safety of its customers.

We went here for lunch and it was our first visit to this location. Food and service were great. Received a coupon for a return visit. Clean restaurant and washrooms.

We went to this restaurant about 5:30 on a Wednesday night and were surprised at how busy and noisy it already was. Service was prompt and our request to be moved to another table quickly accommodated. Ordered fish and chips. The fish was well cooked, but the batter was doughy. French fries were mediocre. Partner had the steak sandwich which he found to be very good. The salad was fresh and good.
