Jack Astor's - Ottawa (Kanata)
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.

A sirloin steak grilled to perfection. Served with your choice of side
Chicken wings tossed in BBQ sauce with a carrot, celery and ranch dip. Served with your choice of side
Travelled to Ottawa for Black Friday
My dish was rice heavy and lacking chicken and not spicy as requested
It looks like they got a new menu, and unfortunately, we were a bit underwhelmed :(. We ordered a salad and a new chicken sandwich, neither of which were great. The salad wasn't as described on the menu, and most of the lettuce was starting to rust, so not the freshest. The sandwich was ok, but nothing too exciting. My daughter loved her chicken fingers from the kids menu :). The service was very friendly, and their new app was prettly slick (ordering refills on our own, and paying directly).
Menu has changed and prices are higher. Was disappointed. Food quality not as good as it was in the past
It was my friends birthday and we had tons of fun
Called ahead to ask if their patio was dog friendly and were told yes and made a reservation. Showed up and were told we had to tie up our four month old puppy 20feet away off the the side of the patio. This is not what I call dog-friendly and we certainly weren’t tying our french bulldog pup off the patio and out of our site. Disappointing as any other options were booked up by this time on a Saturday evening and we were traveling so our options were also limited.
Food was cold, the lemon wedge was rock hard and dry. I was pretty sick at about 2am. It’s my first bad meal at a Jack’s.
Went to Jack’s for a graduation lunch and enjoyed a great meal on the patio.
Chipotle steaks a very tasty dish with the loaded baked potato.
Sat on the patio, which was excellent
Thanks we had a good time. Fun to be out again. Tables were a bit close and small so we were pleased we went mid afternoon.
Food was just ok
Bill was expensive for quality
My steak was mostly fat
Our male server was very nice
But others brought our food and just dropped and ran off
So and we kept having to ask for things
Like salt and pepper, ketchup,
And at one point I asked for dressing on my balsamic dressing for my salad and was brought greek dressing.
We made a reservation and checked in with hostess
We were seated next kitchen so it was high traffic area, noises area and also near take out area and bathrooms
Then when I got home I rec’d an email on open table saying we never showed up for our reservation?
Waitress was awesome!!!
Wonderful birthday for my father-server was most kind and courteous
Very friendly staff! Keep up the good work.
The food was tasty and fast and the service was excellent. One of my favourite places to eat in Kanata.
Food was excellent and our server Megan was wonderful
Come here often always great service! :)
we decided upon recommendation of the server to order the chicken fingers. Amazing!
Great place for family dining - lots of choices even with the condensed Covid menu.
Glad to see waiters with masks. It was great to eat outside at a restaurant!
My steak frites well done was not impressive. Steak was a small piece-not cut in strips like it should be. As a result it was far too well done. Other two meals were good.
Jack Astor’s is my favourite, good service, great food, fair price & great atmosphere.
Milestones is also great with a more elegant atmosphere.
Whispers on Richmond Road, Ottawa is a fabulous restaurant/pub, friendly atmosphere, great service, good food and nice place to meet with your friends.
Then of course Busters Bar & Grill, in Kanata , good food, great open space atmosphere, to watch sports and wonderful staff.
Giovanni Italian restaurant , in little Italy. Fabulous
Great service. Great food. We always enjoy dining at this restaurant.
My family and I were there for a total of 3 hours and ordered food throughout that time and had a few drinks. The server was great and served us in a timely fashion. The food was all good, this is my 8 year old daughters favorite restaurant and one of my husband and Is favorite as well. Overall very good experience
We miss the old menu!!
Food is always good. Our service was amazing. Ask for Winter. She is the best.
We couldn’t believe that a sangria with 2oz of wine cost $13+. The waitress came to the table, opened what looked like pineapple juice in a glass bottle and then had 2oz of wine to which she pored 1oz on top. No fruit, no wine, no good! We expressed our dissatisfaction but the waitress didn’t even acknowledge. The food was good, the restaurant was nice, but the drink and the waitresses lack of wanting to be on shift wasn’t fun.
We had a large group here for dinner and it was pretty decent. I’m not sure if it was because it was a bigger group or not but we waited quite awhile for our food. Our waitress was very nice. In particular I had Chicken Parmigiana but noticed a faint chemical or off taste to the bowtie pasta, nothing horrible just strange.
Would not recommend, food was awful. Had lunch at 1pm and everything seemed reheated and pre-prepared. The burgers were dry and cold and bland, definitely not prepared in house. Veggies were wilted. Even desserts were bad. Go there if you want fast food in a nice place. Not suitable for children, had unpleasant images, even on their kids menu.
We had good service and I was impressed that the manager asked about my food allergy/sensitivity and modified my meal accordingly. Thank you.
Best thing of all was the server; a lovely, friendly young lady with lots of personality!
Was a special super for Mother’s Day.
The service was great and the staff were are awesome.
Jack Astor's Kanata is my favorite special occasion place. My husband and I don't eat out a lot but when we do it is always Jack Astor for our favorite chicken quesadillas. Thank You. See You again soon.
We reserved very early on (using OpenTable) for a table for 6 for a special Mother's Day occasion and was given a poor narrow table in the middle of busy corridor! Seating was very cramped for us and pretty much impeded wheelchair access to washrooms for other people sitting nearby.
There were a lot of better tables available when we arrived but I guess they liked to keep all their customers bunched up in the same corner of restaurant to make it easier for servers.
Food was okay for what it was but not a large or interesting selection to choose from. Menu is more casual and middle of the road and safe. Kid's menu had good variety with healthy selections.
We were there for family lunch but found music was very loud so it was difficult to talk sometimes with the heavy bass speaker thumping away.
Jack Astor's also sent out this misleading email advertising about all mom's getting a glass of Rosee on Mother's Day but it turned out to be more of a "suggestion" and not a "promotion" as first thought.
My sons order was wrong. Server was ok. No longer make frozen margaritas which was very disappointing.
Service was slow for a lunch sitting. The restaurant didn't even seem that busy.
Our server was fantastic, surely outstanding & hilarious! Restaurant atmosphere was awesome, not too loud. Food was excellent for a first time visit, I was very pleased & we will be back again!
Great service, great food! And the fact that they take reservations, certainly alleviates stress for anyone who has event tickets for the CTC.
The service was beyond bad with a waitress who needs a career change. My wife's fish in her fish and chips was disgusting. Lots of batter, the a layer of grease then an itty bitty piece of fish. They have the nerve to charge $21 for a 10 ounce glass of Santa Margarita wine. We will never go back.
The service was outstanding and the staff t-shirts were a nice touch. The food was excellent with the exception of the fish and chips: the fish was overcooked yet the batter was undercooked, and the fries were not hot. All the other dishes were delicious.
I had the 7oz classic steak with loaded mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies. Everything was fantastic and the steak was cooked perfectly.
Would have preferred a better table. I made reservations in advance but we were seated right by the entrance to the bathroom and the kitchen. It was very noisy and very busy. People who walked in on the same day had better tables then we did
