Hubby and I decided to stop in on a Friday night for a few drinks and some appetizers. Was very busy inside about 8:30 and went to the bar to have a drink and wait for a table. Didn't have to wait long at all and we got a nice booth in the corner. Have a great wine menu of... More

Visited for a quick meal and were pleasantly surprised, nice ambiance, service was excellent and the food was typical roadhouse.

We stopped in for a quick supper and sat at the bar to watch both the World Series and the Raptors opening game. A very interesting wine selection, all local, with some that are only available at the winery. We both enjoyed our meals and, of course, our glass of wine from the 13th Street Winery. Keep up the good... More

The bartender was absolutely fantastic super fast, amazing personality and she offerd us so many fantastic specials. But on the other side of this I'm giving a terrible review because of your kitchen. Skillets for our fajitas that were ran by another server not even sizzling that's everyone's favourite part. Lettuce was pulled apart not diced, the toppings were brought... More

My boyfriend and I just went to jack Astors for a late night dinner and some drinks.

I'm actually surprised how amazing she kept up with the crowd. My boyfriend and I... More

Went for weekday lunch with friend. Service was great. Portions were larger than the usual lunch size servings. Always order the soup of the day and you won't go wrong. This location is well run and I highly recommend it.

LOve the chicken fingers and Buffalo chicken salad. Great drinks. But whoa, prices are getting up there, especially for relatively small portions. Service usually good, but maybe it's time to get rid of the super miniskirts, all young female wait staff and the gaggle of hostesses chatting at the front door.

Hi Bouncingdog, Thank you for sharing your feedback. Glad to hear you love the Buffalo Cobb salad! At Jack's we use fresh ingredients to make the majority of our meals in-house, including our famous Chicken Fingers! The quality of our produce and the time it takes our cooks to prepare each dish contributes to our prices. We are slowly phasing... More

I always take my great-uncle here whenever I visit StCatharines. The place was PACKED and we never felt neglected or rushed. Our server (Lisa) was excellent - super personable and attentive. HIGHLIGHT: We placed our dessert order, and a few moments later the manager appeared to say "I have good news and bad news. The bad news is we're out... More

Ordered steak. Was OK... Steamed vegetables were cold (server removed them from our bill). This used to be one of our favorite places to go on date night. Seems its going downhill
