The food selection is great and they make their own chicken fingers from scratch. The service was quick and friendly. It's a good place to stop and eat.

Whilst staying on Ontario street in St.Catherines for a couple of weeks I visited Jack Astor's three times. The first was a normal working day dinner with colleagues and had a seafood meal which was really nice. Sitting at the crook in the bar though was a big mistake. The draught from the heating/aircon wasn't nice. The second time was... More

I normally enjoy this restaurant but they have changed their menu for some healthier choices. One of us had the chicken parm dinner and it was nicely done. My youngest had to eat off the kids menu as the pasta options are gone but they did allow her to do so. Our server was nice and tried to be polite... More

Coming here for lunch, hearing about all the renovations that were done, i was very much so surprised, the beer on tap is an excellent variety of cheap stuff and good solid craft choices. After waiting about 45 minutes they brought one of the two dishes wrong, and they went to correct it. Well a manager *i assume* came over... More

We were travelling with 8 family members and stpped to dinner (actually forgetting it was valentines day). The staff accommodated all of us very quickly, and the meals were great. They even thought of us forgetful husbands and had fresh roses for our loving wives

Used to be some of the best roadhouse food in town. Now it's really expensive for what you get. Everything you are reading here about small portions is accurate. Regardless of the prep time or how fresh your ingredients are the formula isn't working. I hope management listens. Small portions of average fair for high prices doesn't usually make for... More

We had lunch there today. Beautiful renos. We ordered nachos which is usually an item we would share. It was about $16.00 for 11 nachos. I give you they all had toppings and they were delicious. I kid you not; that is $1.45 per cheesy chip. We got the large. So the reg size is probably 6 chips? Wow. The... More

Came here recently for lunch based on the lunch menu shown for this location on their web site. We were surprised to find that there is no lunch menu here. Server thought management had "forgotten" to update their web site. Then why bother having a web site. Otherwise, a pleasant lunch in nice surroundings with good service. Food was neither... More

Had a nice dinner with some other families of my son's team; food was flavorful, with good service. This restaurant claims the cities best selection of craft beer, and it was quite good, with 20+ drinks on tap. I had a burger with a soup that was a good dinner at a good price. One issue in going here was... More

Have been to many JA's across Ontario but this 'signature' store is fabulous. from the easy parking to a warm greeting at the door, seating in a booth out of the way, all expectations were exceeded. i ordered a select cut (11 oz.
