We started with their Jack Pan bred. Normally a great choice but this time it was dry... definitely not enough garlic butter on the bread. I had the tacos...quite bland tasting. The quesadillas that my friend had were nothing spectacular either The best part of the meal was dessert. The Don Kiebals (pronounced donkey balls) were the best. So delicious!... More

Three of us went for a late lunch recently. The service was excellent. The waitress recommended a new wine which was exceptional. She was bright, bubbly and very efficient. The food arrived in a timely manner. Two of us had burgers and they were exceptional. The quesadilla was okay. The food is a little pricey but the atmosphere and quality... More

Jack Astor's is always one of my preferred restaurant at the end of a busy day when I travel for work. This place is casual, fun and relax. The food is also casual but always freshly made. If you like chicken wings and chicken fingers, this is the place! Cocktail card is always very interesting. The service is fast and... More

dropped in for a quick lunch while shopping. Service was quick and very friendly. Menu was large with a wide variety of foods. I had a chicken ceasar and it was large and well worth the price. Maybe a little to large for lunch. All in all I would recommend this location to all who are in this area.

Just had lunch here recently for the first time. The first thing I noticed was a strange smell in the area of my table. Not a pleasant odor but couldn't figure out what it was. I had the soup, salad and garlic bread lunch special. It was good but not overly impressive. My friend enjoyed her burger. Our server Mike... More
