Our mission? Great people helping other great people totally have a blast while enjoying amazing food. Wow, that was a mouthful. But can you blame us? We’re a restaurant. One that specializes in delicious food and great times. Our goal is to make you laugh. And depending on your hot sauce tolerance, cry.

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.

Great food and service, keeps the regulars coming back.
The patio is small, but is functional and gives the 'Sun Worshipers' an excuse to dine 'Al Fresco'.

Still a 'Go To Venue' for pregame events at Rogers and the ACC (NOT, the Scotia Bank Arena)
and for those brave TFC Fans.

Awesome Staff, who are focused on 'Customer Service'.
Great Menu selection (However, limited selection of Wines).

A great 'Mid-Town' location, right above the "Bloor-Yonge Subway Complex".

Service and food were good. But a little less “mist” on the patio would have been appreciated. Being as wet as if it had been raining literally put a damper on things. We had to ask twice before the man made shower stopped.

The service was really bad. I reserved a table for 2 people and it was not ready when we came. We had to take a seat at the bar and the bartender never gave me the menus until I ask to a waiter for them even when we were seating there for 10 min. We ordered 2 drinks and our food and he never put my order in the computer, I don’t know why!. He just gave us our drinks even when I confirmed our orders twice. I was really upset for that! When I ask him for our food he when to the computer to see our orders and he didn’t find it obviously and he tried to lie us and he put the order but he didn’t realize that I was watching him. I didn’t say nothing but after 35 min waiting for a couple burgers I was for sure done. Even he tried to fix the situation but I asked for the bill cuz I was done of that place. Today was the worst experience I have never had before.

I won’t go back!!!

Waitress was very nice. I was there with three of my adult children. We had drinks, apps and entrees. My entree fries came out with apps as did one of my daughters salad. This just should not have happened. Other than that the evening was great..

A colleague and I went for lunch at noon with reservations. We both wanted your famous chicken strips but they were not available. I asked how can you be sold out at noon. The waitress said that they sold out the night before. Then I asked for the soup of the day (potato and leek) but she came back from kitchen to say that they didn't have any. So I went to my 3rd choice.
I'm surprised the lunch menu has been removed. The dinner portions are too large for a lunch meal.
I don't think we would return for lunch again although I work across the street.
I must comment that the service was friendly and excellent.

Came here for the raptors finals and we suggested to sit closest to a tv which we were able to. Our server was bubbly, very friendly and attentive. We accidentally broke a pint glass and she assured us that it was no biggy, she didn’t look at all upset or annoyed with us, so that was very comforting. The vibe of this Jack Astor’s was fun! I would definitely return.

Table wasn't "reserved" and had to wait. When we did get our table it was for 4 (reserved for party of 5) but the waitress said she could move the table for two against it so we had more space. BUT as soon as we sat down she changed her mind and said they needed the space and sat my party of 5 at a table for 4 and a party of 8 at a table for 6 right beside us. Food was the usual and the other server was a sweetheart but so cramped and unprofessional.

Jack Astors is a GTA / Golden Horseshoe dependable staple. Their food is always good and the service cheery and prompt. I had the cheeseburger and salad, and their burgers are great. Colleagues had the steak frites and chicken sandwich, both of which were on point. The Yonge / Bloor dinning room is a little cramped, but hey...its at Yonge & Bloor and that goes with the neighborhood.

Been going to the Jacks franchise since '97, and I'll be back.

I made a small request with something not being in my salad and it was still there, kinda made me feel that the side salads just sit already made up another thing that adds more proof to this was that the croutons were quite soggy meaning they had been sitting in the salad for quite some time

Unfortunately two out of three of us had hair on our food. One also had an unwashed glass. Very bad first impression for the two visitors to Toronto. They will not be coming back to this chain.

Good food, fast, efficient and friendly service. We complained about the music being too loud as we sat right under a speaker and staff was accommodating. Good place for group lunches in the yonge and bloor area

We eat at Jack Astor's at lunch a lot....location location location. This particular location is like a cheap airline....they have re-modelled to pack in as many tables in as possible that it is just not comfortable...and pity larger people - they won't fit! As for the food. I order the exact same thing every time I am there which is about once a week. Chicken fingers, hot sauce on the side, blue cheese dip instead of ranch. Side salad with blue cheese dressing on the side. Not once have they got the order right...but the chicken fingers are good but it would be nice to have some space to eat them in!

Another great luncheon meeting at this venue.
From the warm greeting in the lobby by the manager, who was welcoming patrons with free appetizers;
to great food and service.

A great way to kick-off the St. Paddy's Day - Weekend.
