Whenever my son and I are in Kanata for hockey, we like to stop into Jack Astor's. Kind of a tradition for us. This time was different. He always takes the Macho Nachos. Now, the menu has changed, so he took the chicken parmigiana and I had the wings. The wings were decent, but the side of fries was not... More

One of the worst dining experiences we have had in quite some time. My husband ordered a chicken burger with fries. What was delivered was, essentially, a kids sized portion for his meal. Unacceptable for the price. The chicken breast itself was tiny, underseasoned and the tomato over ripe (on the edge of being questionable), on a crappy little white... More

We had a plane to catch and wanted a good meal before we headed to the airport. The restaurant wasn't very busy so we figured we would have enough time. We ordered our drinks then then waited quite some time for the server to take our food order then we waited....and we waited...and we waited. Finally the General Manager noticed... More

My daughter claims Jack Astors makes the best veggie nachos and I must say she has good taste. At $15.74, for a typical plate, they're not the cheapest around. Add $2.99 for a tiny dip cup of guacamole and you're just shy of $20. Would skip the guac next time as it didn't add much to the plate. The hot... More

I haven't been to a Jack Astor's in years. I will never go back. The food use to be good what happened? The price was also absolutely ridiculous. I ordered the pad Thai bowl. There was absolutely no flavour what so ever in this meal as well as only 4 of the smallest pieces of chicken I have ever seen.... More

Always difficult to write a review for a restaurant chain. Jack Astor's falls into the "casual" food category, serving mainly sandwiches, burgers and basic dishes (noodle bowls, pasta) and a few larger entrees. It is not "fancy" but they do put a few twists on classics. So if you are looking for a gourmet place - Jack Astor's will definitely... More

Ate in the dining room last Saturday with some friends. Had the famous chicken fingers. Good flavours but found the portion a little small for the price. Service was great. I will go back.

There pricing is a bit expensive but food was worth it. I had there roadkill sandwich, delicious. Most of the kids had burgers, they all loved it. We also used... More

The service was quick today at lunch. This chain has a good menu with something for everyone. The waiter was friendly and helpful. Try the smiling Buddha salad for lunch. It's great and healthy too.

I visit this restaurant on regular basis to watch hockey or other sport event and I am always happy with what I got. On Sat 15 Oct 2016, I will go see a hockey game at Canadian tire center with some friends. So, I was thinking to reserve like I usually do at the restaurant. However, the restaurant totally refuse...
