Our mission? Great people helping other great people totally have a blast while enjoying amazing food. Wow, that was a mouthful. But can you blame us? We’re a restaurant. One that specializes in delicious food and great times. Our goal is to make you laugh. And depending on your hot sauce tolerance, cry.

In all seriousness, we take real pride in our food. Try our Cluckin’ Fresh Chicken Fingers, made and seasoned with fresh, never frozen chicken tenders. This isn’t run-of-the-mill pub grub. Our Band of Chefs are influenced by a wide variety of tastes and have travelled across the globe to gain inspiration.

But outside of the kitchen, we find it hard to take ourselves seriously. We have an Elvis booth. For no particular reason. Folks, that really does say it all. We’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.

    First time back at dining since Covid and its restrictions. It was great going to Jack Astor and being greeted by friendly staff. Our server was prompt. The food was amazingly fresh! I am looking forward to going again.

    The service and the food were very good. Exactly what we’ve come to expect at Jack Astor’s. The value for our dining dollar is not the same at all. Hopefully it’s related to a “temporary” spike in food costs. Unfortunately the dining experience was completely ruined by the loud music. We could barely carry on a conversation. Our waitress told us that the level of the music was dictated by head office and the manager couldn’t turn it down. Although we’ve been eating there for several years this policy is forcing us to go elsewhere.

    Our server was outstanding. Very attentive, courteous and pleasant. Our drinks we’re satisfactory. My wife’s food order was perfect however my food was cold and my French fries were limp instead of crispy. The server very kindly offered to to bring me a fresh order however I declined. On submission of our cheque, the server told us that my dinner was at no cost! We have been at this location several times and it is a lovely restaurant that always provides excellent service and food. There is never any hassle if you are not satisfied with your food. I would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant any day. My only complaint is about the music, which unbelievably loud.

    Initial check in and service was very good. Food great as expected but music by dj in corner way too loud to carry on a conversation. Not necessary at all. Probably the worst thing about evening was music too loud to hear anything partner across table said. We could hear what other tables were saying because they had to yell at each other. 😥 Too bad as was becoming our fav place to chill during pandemic. We will return but will be very aware of noise level next time and may have to reconsider where we go to chill after a long week.

    Music way too loud for the few customers dining at 1 p.m. and hard to converse with one another - one person wearing hearing aids very uncomfortable. Server tuned the music down somewhat but still loud Classic burger dry around the outside edges. Tasty but wouldn't order again. Others found their meals satisfactory. Dessert was good. Booth in the corner very dark. Hard to read menu.

    Dinner out with my husband, great service and food. Nice that they give the option to either get the routine dining experience or have a less contact option - we did the full dining of course since we really missed dining out!

    Has a nice booth at the back catching up with friends from the US that we hadn’t seen in ages! Waitress was great, didn’t rush us but there when we needed her. Food was awesome .. shared bruschetta to start then 3 had the Thai Sesame Chicken Stir Fry and 1 had the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and we all loved our meals! Going back next week for girls night as it was so good!

    I don’t think they offer enough on the menu and I found what’s there is pricey. I ordered chicken parmigiana without the creamy cheese sauce and with the tomato sauce. It arrived without any sauce for the pasta which was cold. When the waiter finally came around he said he would get a side dish of sauce. It still hadn’t arrived when we left. My husband ordered steak which he found had too much pepper but he was able to enjoy the rest. I won’t be going back!

    Overall a good experience. My wife ordered the fish and chip with the creamy coleslaw but the coleslaw came out dry and after a few minutes we asked one of the servers if the slaw was supposed to come out dry she went and checked and then brought some dressing for it to make it right . $20 for a chicken parm sandwich seemed a little much but it was really good

    Music too loud !!!! This always seems to be an issue at this restaurant. If it’s just being used as a bar no problem but last night the bar was empty yet the dining patrons had to raise their voice to talk, very disappointing, need better onsite supervision Food and service were great!!

    Ordered old favourite Asiago chicken bow ties. Not as good as remember. Not creamy at all as states. Oily and chicken, while crusted tasted funny with weird texture. Added bacon but no mushrooms. Paid extra. Bacon scarce. Not worth $23. Still fav spot. Will stick to other menu items. Mexican bowl also different and not as good either. Service great!
