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. NY) and it was cooked exactly as i wished, the sides were perfect and portions right on.... More

We used to come here once or twice a week, we loved the bar menu you offered and we LOVED your bruschetta bread but it's gone off the menu, our favourite salad is gone to. The new renovation isn't a small town feel anymore, it feels like a Toronto location now. The menu just consists of deep fried food and... More

Have never been a fan of this restaurant but decided to give it a try as I received a flyer in the mail. Our food was excellent. Everything was fresh and delicious. Our server Kim was really good and pleasant. I will definitely be back.

After moving recently I was a bit worried that the area didn't have a huge variety of craft beers at local restaurants! But jack astors has a large selection and the service was very friendly. The food menu is a bit different than some of their other locations but still great options. Will be back in the near future for... More
