Jack Astor's - London (South)
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.
The waitress Maddie went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time and enjoyed every bite. My friend and I have a couple of dietary restrictions which the kitchen accommodated for us.
We will be back to dine again for sure.
Jack's is still one of the best Chain restaurants but the value for the money has severely declined.
Although our food was delicious, it felt that I was eating in the United States where they rush you in and out. No sooner did we get our drinks that our food arrived. We like to sit back and enjoy ourselves over drinks before we eat. Did not happen here.
Absolutely love Jack Astor's but the pricing has increased at least 20% - 25% in the last few years.
Our server, Patrick, was very friendly and helpful.
Found the prices too high for what you get. Won’t be back because of this. Otherwise met expectations.
It was a bad experience. We left before we ordered. We asked our server a question about a gluten sensitivity. She said she would go ask someone and she did not return to the table. I saw her serving other tables and even cleaning one off. I didn’t understand why she was ignoring us. After 25 minutes another server came and said they would now be serving us? We had an infant with us and couldn’t spend another hour at the restaurant so we left.
It wasn’t busy while we were there. We wanted to celebrate the end of a maternity leave and our son being 1. I guess we’ll remember this celebration negatively for some time to come.
Good for a night out
First, we were seated in bar height booth with a 2 year old - weren't offered a regular table with a highchair. Wasn't super impressed but let it go as we just figured they didn't have highchairs.
The food was decent but the portion sizes were tiny and expensive for what we got. Our waiter was either new or distracted as we had multiple issues with him not listening to what we asked. If he wasn't sure, he should have clarified. Definately not a $70 meal. The food was good but we won't be back.
Good food ,good food service and good value. On arrival we were told we had no reservation, which we had through Open Table. The young man who dealt with us at the front desk was not very helpful.
Waiter Codie was excellent and attentive. Great job.
Food was fine.
Door guy thought he was running a private club. Was full of attitude and not good at his job.
We had a reservation- which he wasn’t going to keep because we had kids?!?! Said we’d have to wait an hour to accommodate our kids.
Since when is this “family” restaurant not taking kids?
Kids ages 2-10.
I didn’t have 24 infants with special needs.
Apparently when booking you need to specify that you have children. Which it doesn’t say anywhere.
Apparently you are supposed to mark that in the comments. Apparently it’s a well known thing and I am scum for not knowing. So we had a 2 yr old at a high table, not the best but it was the only option. Completely unacceptable exchange with the door guy.
Guess what big guy, you are the door guy at Jack Astor’s, not an exclusive Vegas night club. You are the face and touch point of the franchise. And you failed miserably.
Dear management- time to review the training process on this. Or get someone out there with common decency and respect. It’s not rocket science. Politeness goes miles. This punk was useless and ignorant and looks bad on your company.
Great meal and great service from Jason!
Trivia night, a bit loud for us to be able to visit but will remember to avoid Monday nights if dining with friends. Always enjoy our time at Jack Astor’s.
Had a great time at Jack Astor’s! The service was good and fast. Our server Jordan was so nice and helpful. A great atmosphere to watch the raptors game at. Definitely would recommend for dinner with friends!
Food is not as good as it used to be. Wine is a terrible price. It will be a long time until we return
I am sorry to say that I was not that impressed with this restaurant. The noise level was so bad, that we could barely hear ourselves talk. The waiter was not very helpful, gave JUST what was requested without doing any more. I understand that he was busy and we were not his only customers; however, I had ordered a salmon and instead of the steamed rice - I asked to substitute that with a baked potato. When my meal came - I ONLY received was the salmon (which was done not bad) and a baked potato (which was not done very well). There was no side of veggies, and no toppings for the potato. I chose not to say anything, because it was SO loud, and I could see there were many patrons. Furthermore, we waited quite a long time to be served AND then waited a long time to receive our bill.
Very good and service was quick booked reservation online and was not waiting for a table excellent
Noise level was insane given our seating; they have an open kitchen so pot and pans and everything consistantly banging, additionally we counted 6 glasses that broke in the kitchen.
Portion sizes were very small.
Purchases the ahi tuna salad .. dish was decent.. very disappointed in 80% being lettuce.. only 4 small pieces of tuna and the mango was FROZEN .. clearly a grocery store purchase of frozen mango.
My company enjoyed there meals however were equally disappoint in the serving size, so much so we grabbed food on the way home.
Wouldnt be a bad place for a beer during the game, but if your looking to go home satisfied I'd move somewhere else.
Can’t remember our waitress name began with an s but she was amazing
Making the reservation was easy.
We had prompt service when we arrived.
Our server was available and attentive.
Prices were reasonable
Our waiter Jason was very helpful and provided excellent suggestions.
It was for a birthday party. 7 people seemed expensive, food was great.
We had a very nice lunch. Our reservation was ready and service and food very good. Thanks
The steaks were unsatisfactory. Price was too much for what we received. Could hardly hear each other speak. Service was good.
Was a little cool in the restaurant.
Good food. Slow service.
Table was ready when we arrived a little early. Ordered drinks, appetizers and meals. Drinks came first then the meals which we sent back because the appetizer hadn’t arrived yet. When it came it was very good as were the meals when they were served again. A little noisy but it didn’t detract from the hockey game.
A great spot for lunch, I just feel he music could be turned down a bit.
After my last visit I was not very pleased with my dining experience however the birthday girl requested that we dine there. The Food was adequate, price was very expensive, including charges for refills. When asked when making the reservation if there was a special occasion I advised that the reservation was for a 40th Birthday. Not one staff even mentioned the birthday.
Thus location of Jack's has restored our faith in the chain.
Too Noisy - Music Blaring - Metal ceilings just distort all sound.
menu is more expensive and less in serving, then before the renos!
Our service was poor because we waited forever for her to come to our table and take our drink order. When she did come she greeted a larger table of 8-10 that was seated several minutes after we were.
I found a hair in my fajita setup and even though it was replaced I was surprised there was no visit to the table by a manager.
The food was the worst I’ve ever had since going and my husband and I go often.
Food was awesome!
Very loud, could not carry on a conversation with people at table because of the noise level. Food was very average, nothing special and it was expensive for quality of food served.
I booked this reservation for my sons 9th birthday at his request. He loves the lemon milkshakes that we seem to only be able to find at Jack Astor’s. When we arrived we found out that there were no kids menus for the kids to colour, and absolutely no milkshake supplies available! He couldn’t even choose a different type, none :(. To top it off we went to order a pan bread, and were told there wasn’t any of that either. Our server later told us they made fresh ones and we could have one if we still wanted. This was a Saturday night at 7pm. It was dissapointing how ill- prepared the restaurant was.
Very much enjoyed the meal and service was great. Table was awkward hard for servers to get to one end of the table a menu is very hard to read
We were 8 people with 3 elderly people in their 80’s and they sat us (even though we had reservations) at a pub height table. Which I said was too high for the elderly. They couldn’t do anything for us. Food took a long time, I didn’t get my wine when others got theirs.
Portions were much smaller than normal. Manager was not very accommodating or sincere.
I was very surprised the evening was this bad.
Food and service was great! Our waitress Gerr was very friendly and efficient. Will be back soon!
Too loud. Soft drinks were flat.
