Been to a Jack’s before? Then you’ll notice we’ve shaken things up a bit this time around by adding some new menu items designed just for you! Fresh tacos, board nachos and a selection of mouth-watering burgers are waiting to be inspected by your taste buds. We now feature 40 beers on tap, including some of Ottawa’s own local brews.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
