Jack Astor's - Ottawa (Hunt Club)
So what about this Jack’s has stayed the same? Same great food, same great people and of course, the same chalkboards giving you something funny to look at- besides your date!
Get your butt down here right now!
The Kanata location is amazing, however the hunt club location was a disappointment. It was not busy AT ALL. Yet the waitress forgot to bring us cutlery and we had to ask another server for it, they were out of garlic bread, she messed up my bill and we had to wait 20 minutes for her to fix it. She was very slow in attending to us, and was not apologetic at all about any thing that was not correct.
Major disappointment for a restaurant my friends and I love .
Not to mention our group was only 3 people so it wasn’t a massive party.
We had to ask to have the music turned down. We didn't see anyone dancing so why so loud? Medium rare steaks were overdone and very thin. Server spilled beer when he brought it and didn't bother to clean up. Would have been okay at 1/2 the price.
Chicken fingers were great! But my sweet potato fries were cold. Service was quite slow initially but the waitress was lovely and got the orders right no problem.
Service was excellent - reservation honored at appropriate time, server was attentive without being overbearing, food order was correct and served hot. Food was great in terms of both quantity and quality. Only beef would be overall noise level that made it hard at times to conduct a normal conversation.
Fish and chips was awful. The batter was over cooked and the fish seemed raw.
It was really enjoyable and our waiter was really pleasant. The food was good too.
Steak was tough & dry & served rare when ordered blue without sauce. Veggies OK but no herbs or butter. Small piece of salmon with dry multigrain rice. Chicken quesadillas were moist & tasty but sloppy eating. NY Striploin was fine. Waitress was great.
Yes would definitely recommend , have been there 2 mothers days in a row and have had no complaints...my mother loves the wings ..Thank-God ...lol!!!
ALEX new waiter, first day alone was well trained, very pleasant and very focused on customer service. Not our first visit and definitely not our last
I made the reservation via Open table and I was able to just walk into the restaurant. We were served quickly. I shared a order of chicken and steak Fajitas along with an order of fresh garlic bread and chicken wings. I really like the lightly breaded chicken wings here. I wish they had a wing night special. The bread could have been cooked a little bit longer as the outside was a bit mushy. I enjoyed the fajitas only wished they had fresh fajitas wraps. They only give you 8 for 2 people.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, the staff were amazing. I highly recommend Hunt Club Jack Astor's
Overall our dinner was good. I find the prices a bit high for the salads (nearly the same price as a steak dinner). Which may prompt you to make some unhealthy choices. Our server was okay, she was on the verge of being rude a couple times. But seemed to just be her personality, she was also very prompt. I would go back but it wouldn't be my first choice of restaurants to go to.
Our youngest daughter had the tomato pasta but the sauce was so spicy she couldn't even eat it.
I made my reservation through Open Table. For 6 people including a high chair. We were initially told we would have to sit in the bar area, even though it meant that the high chair dweller would be lower than the table. After objecting, a table was found for us in the main dining area. Reception at the restaurant suggested I should have also called jack astors to confirm the reservation ... because they should have shut down open table, and didn’t......or something??? Why have online reservations if you still have to call restaurant.
It seemed like since our last visit, additional tables were added to the main dining area. It was so cramped, that we twice had to get up to let people at the table beside us in and out of their spots. My chair was repeatedly being bumped by the service staff as they rushed past. Having said that, the servers, ours in particular, were all doing their very best to make the experience enjoyable. I have no complaint about the staff at all. I do not know how they are doing their jobs in such cramped and noisy an environment. I appreciate it is a family restaurant, indeed we had two children with us, but since everyone was so crowded in, the noise level seemed to have increased considerably. This is a place we often have visited with our kids and grandkids - at least once a month for years. Not sure if we will return.
Service was amazing along with great food ! I would recommend Jack Astor’s to anyone that wants quality and above all it’s a great place to have a gathering of friends!
Very good place for family! Excellent service and food very tasty!
Great, fast service. Friendly staff and Good food..
It was awesome and tasty. I was a wee bit hungry after (had the 7oz steak with mashed). I would have wanted a bit more potatoes for the price. Bread on the table would also be great
Had a great evening, the food was amazing and the staff was super nice. Every time we go we always have a great time.
Service was good and relatively quick considering how busy it was. Long Board Nachos not nearly as good as they usually are.
Ordered medium rare steak. Thin and overcooked.
Adagio chicken was very good.
Good neighborhood restaurant for groups or date night.
We had a fabulous time, thank you! Our server, Amy, was very knowledgeable, and was able to guide us through the menu and assist us with all of our questions.
As stated in my other reviews JA tends to be a local favorite in any town they are in; food is consistent as is customer service, some better than others, but overall cant go wrong if you need a spot in a pinch or if you need a place to go on a friday night after the movies...
There was nothing particularly wrong with the food, it was just pretty plain and unexciting. Service was OK but there were a few times when we wanted something and had to wait and flag down the waiter.
It would be nice to see some more vegetarian options on the menu, but the "Hold the Meat" burger is great. Definately recommend making a reservation for dinner to avoid a long wait for a table. Tried a fishbowl drink and it was disappointing. Like a big bowl of water. Otherwise a good spot.
We like the atmosphere and menu at Jack Astor's. Party of four -- three enjoyed their entrees. My entree, 7oz steak, was *unusually* tough. Server replaced the steak and it was delish, as usual.
The four of u
Thanks very much. We had a great lunch and it was convenient to be able to make a reservation.
Excellent service and wide variety of food in a casual and comfortable atmosphere for entire family.
On a very busy night the service was efficient and well timed. We never felt rushed. The food was very good. We always enjoy the variety of "Bowls" meals. They are very tasty and still healthy.
Great food and service. Steak was good and quesadillas amazing! Will be back
Service was amazing
First time reservation at this location and we were not disappointed.
Service was efficient and food was delicious.
Pan bred was great but Asiago chicken bow ties was very lukewarm for all three diners. Waitress didn’t check to see if everything was okay. She was pleasant but needs to keep up on this.
Restaurant was great. The waiter was very nice and knowledgeable. Fast but not to fast service and the door greeter was very nice as well.
We were the last ones to leave near closing and they didn't rush us to leave; this was so appreciated as we were able to talk for all that time.
Was in contact with them 3 times to confirm the reservation only to have them call to say they couldn't accommodate us only if we sat in the bar. I agreed. For the duration of our stay there was only a handful of people in the restaurant. Maybe only a quart full. They were the butt of our jokes that night.
My wife and I were in town for a weekend getaway from five hours away! Absolutely amazing!
