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’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.

    1. I booked the appointment through Open Table and received a confirmation. Yet the host at the front said she did not find the reservation. 2. The host was not even welcoming. 3. The hosts inside were even colder and were avoiding our gaze while we waited to approach them to ask for a table. There was no feeling of genuineness. 4. We were seated in the lounge area with a small table. We asked to be relocated to wherever with a bigger table. The server was nice and warm. She called the hosts who came and looked annoyed as we said that we preferred to be seated in the dining area, which was after they suggested it. The hosts spoke very rudely. 5. We were seated in the dining area and noticed that it was predominantly occupied by white people. The treatment that they received versus ours (brown) was extremely noticeable. 6. After we finished our starters, all the dirty dishes were left on the table despite so many back and forths of the waiters. If was only after i requested for them to be cleared that one of them came forward. Again the way we were being spoken to was extremely uncalled for. 7. Our waited only tried to sweet talk me when it was time to pay the bill and of course for a tip. I have been going to this Toronto every time that i have been to Toronto and never had i received this kind of treatment. I even greeted all three hosts (2 inside and 1 outside) while leaving and the response was extremely cold. People working in this kind of places should be well chosen as they represent the face and voice of the company, which has been awful. Extremely disappointing

    We love coming to Toronto Jack Astors on Front St. every time we have an event downtown. It was and is always amazing experience. With my husband being Vegan he was able to enjoy the food too. Guacamole was incredible!

    Food is good as usual but the music is so loud you can’t have a conversation with your table. Don’t go there if you are planning to think you will be able to talk.

    It is one of my 'go-to' places, for locations, ambience, and convenience. The steak was as good as it was expected to be but somehow it was warm when it arrived at the table. The crab and lobster dip was nothing to write home about. The staff, as always, was very friendly, and always attentive.

    We went here before a Leaf's game. Thankfully we went early as it got pretty busy. We had very good service and the food was great. The waitress overheard us talking about my son's birthday and brought him a complimentary brownie with a candle in it. That was very thoughtful. A convenient location and we would definitely return here again.

    The Front St location is getting tired. There is a tendency to first put you at the back by the kitchen when using Open Table… just push for the spot you want. Nothing wrong with it, but have had better experiences here.

    I went to J&A with a friend for a beer and snacks, during the evening. I had to waive for the waiter every time I need something even tough I left the green sign on. I ordered the chicken fingers, which was about the size of chicken breasts and taste a lot like vinegar. Regardless, thanks to the nice ambience and beer, I had a good time, but I’ll definitely choose another place next time.

    Love the ambiance; it is just bustling. Awesome service! Food was great; we all loved it. Myself I had the Garlic herb shrimp pasta; it was delicious 🌟 Also the vanilla icecream was very yummy 😊 Am picky about my coffee and it too was good! We ladies will definitely be back if we are going to another show. And if we're on the road my husband and I will look for a Jack Astor's 👍We mostly eat at home as we are older and have to watch the calories 😛 Like that they are listed. Keep up the good work 🤗 🌟

    Service was prompt and courteous and food was yummy. I had the steak and it was perfectly prepared and my sister had the chicken fingers which are always good. Note: my sister is in an electric wheelchair and she could not be accommodated inside the restaurant because the lift was not working properly. We sat on the patio which was fine because the weather was nice but my advice would to check with the restaurant beforehand to make sure they can accommodate an electric wheelchair inside.

    Always consistent and dependable. Great and imaginative food, service is attentive but not bothersome and lots of energy in the place. One of my favorites in the downtown core and there are plenty of other choices available.
