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 for a lunch for 5 at 1pm, for my sisters birthday. My brother and his wife had already arrived and ordered a coffee, they were told they could only have decaf. Later it was revealed they had run out of coffee and wouldn’t be able to get anymore until Monday. Then after a long wait and the restaurant was not full, they took our orders. My brother and his wife ordered a $20 salad each, when the salads arrived some time later there was no chicken in the salad, another 15minute wait to add the chicken. Then my sister the birthday girl decided to order dessert, a cookie brownie thing. After a 10minute wait the waitress came back and said sorry they were out of that dessert and could she order something different. The waitress was pleasant there were obviously issues with the kitchen. Suffice to say we will not choose that location again. Very dissapointed as we had travelled in from the Niagara region.

Always a good go-to.
Ran out of sweet potato fries. Strange but not a deal breaker.
Ran out of kids dessert cookie. Very strange but waiter was awesome and brought out a freshly baked cookie with a brownie baked into it.
My son was thrilled!
Very nice.

The service was good, the server was really nice and attentive. She did not refill our drinks though...
The price for the food was very expensive for a chain restaurant like Jack Astor's and the salads were overly dressed.

It was a special occasion for our group of Mom's and Daughters excited to see The Nutcracker. Our table was excellent and ready when we arrived. The BEST part of our experience was by our Waiter and the outstanding service he provided. The food was great and arrived quickly (we were on a timeline and had no problem making our show). It is a great location and we will all be going back.

I like that they offer grain & rice bowls. The veggies are good, but the ahi tuna that they offer is not very fresh tasting. This item needs to be of the utmost quality so I think they should remove the tuna in these bowls and replace it with some other protein that is easier for them to serve fresh like shrimp, chicken or tofu. Or make it vegetarian and drop the price accordingly. Also, the extra bar seating that they added makes the bar area look clunky and crowded, even when it's not busy.

Only complaint was that there's a soggy fry inside my ranch dip and we didn't order any fries. No apologies offered, just replaced it. Also they wouldn't accommodate our group of 9 to the patio even though I said we are willing to wait up to an hour.

My soup (their signature cheese n beer) was cold. It was replaced without issue however it took awhile to get the second bowl. I left a note regarding providing a desert to my colleague which was not seen or acted upon...I had to tell the waitress in front of my colleague and it should have been a surprise. But the server was excellent and once replaced the food was delicious.

Our server (Eddie) was friendly and attentive. There was also a nice selection of beers. Unfortunately the food was very disappointing. 5 of the 6 of us ordered burgers and when they arrived we found them to be very over-cooked (dry, grey, with almost crunchy exterior) and very tiny. We were not impressed and probably should have gone anywhere else for dinner.

The food was tasty but I was disappointed in the serving size. I had a shrimp fajita. There was a good amount of shrimp but they really cheated out on the vegetables. There was 4 or 5 slivers of pepper and about the same of onion. It's a pity that they did well with the flavour and the quantity of shrimp but skimped on the least expensive ingredient. When I told the waiter he shrugged his shoulders and said that he understood

Our waitress Helen was not on the ball. She forgot the special menu we asked for, drinks took long to get to us and the restaurant was not busy. We order two Festive specials and they were out of Hershey Kisses and no attempt to replace it with something else or possibly a reduction in price. She forgot a coffee order. Only came to the table once to check if we were doing fine. We were celebrating two birthdays that day and we wanted it to be extra special and we told her so. We did receive two brownies and they sang their celebration song. However, the personal touch was not there. She did the basic service and did not appear to want to be there. As a prior restaurant owner I will say that service is not for her. My guests were even disappointed. I gave her a tip but did it reluctantly. I did not want the party be any more diminished.

Went with a few friends before catching a movie. Food and service was good. The place was not too loud,but it was 4 pm.
All in all a decent place to grab a bite on the go.

I always love coming here. The servers are always fun, energetic, and super helpful! The atmosphere is very casual and relaxed, yet you can also show up for formal event. The food is always great! And its not too bad on the wallet!

Plus the Lobster & Crab dip appetizer is to die for in my opinion.

Yeah, I've been going to Jack Astor's for years now and this location in particular for...well, longer than I care to admit. The decor and the menu have changed some but it's still the same basic idea: fun atmosphere but not TOO loud, friendly service, a vibrant decor and surprisingly good grub for a chain restaurant.

Sure the wine list isn't great, some of the drink concoctions are misses and I've even had a bad server or two over the years. But when it comes down to it, I rarely leave unhappy and I've been many a time.

Oh and I do love that they have tofu fajitas for us vegetarians rather than just "no meat". Protein...and rather tasty. THANK YOU!

we were seated very quickly, food was fresh and hot, the waiter knew what he was talking about and every server we came across was polite and informative, only issue was once i paid and gave the waiter a very nice tip for all his help, he slammed the receipt on the table and walked off. i guess the service only lasts until the very moment they have your money.

Great service, very friendly and excellent food. The club sandwich was superb, juicy chicken and crispy bacon. The Square One location is very convenient for lunch meetings as it's very easy to find and there's lots of parking.
