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.

We arrived early and they seated us promptly. However we asked for a table away from large groups and children and they brought over a table with both. The restaurant was very empty at the time they brought this group in.

The food was good although service was relatively slow. Our server was very friendly and may have been new, to be fair. It was very busy and we heard a birthday song 3 or 4 times during our stay so we'll probably sit in the bar next time.

Met with a friend at lunch. The background music too loud for a conversation plus there was a large group beside us to add more noise. We managed. Our server was busy with this large group and we had to ask to get our bill and drink refill.
Was still very impressed with the menu choices. I had the sired tuna with rice. Amazing!!!!

Out of our table of 5, one person found a long stringy hair baked into their Garlic Pan Bread appatizer. The manager was involved and apologized for the error. Not more than 10 minutes later, the same person at our table found another hair at the bottom of their entree stock to the bowl. This was a different coloured hair. Needless to say disgusting and unsanitary. The manager took the meal off the bill, and discounted everyone else's meals by 15%. I am thankful for the manager's actions but once is a coincidence, twice is a pattern. I won't be going back to this location anytime soon.

Had a great meal at Jack's. Only "complaint" would be that my entree showed up while still eating our appetizer. But, food was fantastic!

food was great ... and the service as well
the ladies liked the Pink Bubble, and had other patrons stop by out tables to ask what that was called.
reasonable pricing on food a little high on the bar drinks.

My food was served cold even though it was chicken mac & cheese. My companion's food was hot. It was like they put it in the bowl and forgot to throw it in the microwave. So by the time I got a replacement my friend had finished their meal. Not a great scenario. Food was mediocre, not like I've had in the past. Service was not great and waitress seemed out of it (possibly hungover or out partying late as it wa noon). Won't be returning.

We mane a reservation and we’re promptly seated when we arrived. Our order was taken and it arrived promptly. Everything was good with our order however when dessert was ordered it seemed to take a while to arrive. And,frankly, it wasn’t worth waiting for. The brownie was pretty dry,

We like the restaurant but tonight’s visit wasn’t the best.

Have to say was very disappointed. My 2 girlfriends go there every year when one of them comes home from Florida. First off they changed the menu! Two of the 3 of us always ordered the buffalo chicken salad which is not on the menu now. Tried to order anyway but was told they can’t do it. Menu was not impressive at all, 5 different burger options but not much else in the sandwich department. Went with the Chicken Clubhouse with Caesar salad. Again, not impressed, very tiny sandwich and not very flavourful. Salad had hardly any dressing, had to ask for more! Bill came and it was $24, I didn’t even drink, just had water and we split bruschetta between 3 of us which meant 1 and 1/2 pieces each. By the time I added tip it was almost $30. After years of going there with my 2 friends, I will certainly not be going back anytime soon. Too many other good places to go for that kind of money. Lastly, music is way to loud! I actually remember this from last time and had forgotten. All in all, not a good experience.

Very disappointed!! Service at the bar was very slow. Asked for extra sauce when ordered but had to ask again when my meal came. My son ordered steak which was very stringy. Not a cheap meal so surprised by the poor quality. Honestly won't go back!

Mother’s Day lunch. Started off well with a server who was super pleasant despite being a mother and having to work on Mother’s Day. We brought our family here for bruschetta and sangria. They had neither. We found this strange since it was a lunch reservation and they couldn’t have possibly ran out.

We ordered other apps that were covered by the manager/server. The rest of the meal went off without a hitch. The restaurant recovered the situation and a good time was had by all.

I enjoy eating at Jack Astor's for the food choices on the menu. The prices are reasonable. I have found the portions are more than enough and I leave full. We had a service dog with us and walked in very comfortable and accepted. Our overall experience was very good and we would not hesitate to come back at all. Thank you Jack Astor's for a great meal and dining experience.

One of the meals was not what was ordered. Willing to accept but was cold - obviously had been sitting in kitchen from previous order that was returned. Finally brought correct order but only after half of other dinners had been consumed.
One other dish - Fish & Chips - Fish was greasy - seemed like batter not completely cooked, but fish was ok so obviously did not leave in fryer long enough. Again, chips were lukewarm.
Service was acceptable and friendly at first, but lackluster thereafter.

Jack draws me in for their Chicken Fingers ... delicious. My fries were not hot and they were replaced immediately upon request. Menu changes still haven't brought back my fave Cheese Peppercorn Rigatoni. It was scrumptious!!!

We used a $15 coupon that was emailed. Thanks Jack!

Generally good. But the children's pasta was not really for picky kids. Very little sauce and too "peppery" for my kid's palette. Too pricey for what they got. Not rushing back any time soon.
