Drinks are watered-down, the steak is tough, used to give mushrooms. Vegetables are not cooked. Used to be a good place to eat but gone downhill in quality and raised the prices.

We all had excellent meals, one steak meal & 2 steak fajitas. Both were excellent. The fajita steak was tender and juicy and came with large chunks which still fit nicely into the taco shell. One person had a Fishbowl strawberry, mint drink which was...More

Good choice for nice meal. A little noisy but not bad. Good service, friendly. Good selections on menu. The service was fast, waitress kept checking to make sure we were fine and didn't need anything.

Great meal, food was terrific and the service was friendly and prompt. A bit expensive for a bar and grill but we were happy overall.

We ate as a group of 12, and while you pay quite a bit for what you get, it is easy, quick, and good. The experience at any of the Jack Astors I've been to (and it's been 9 or 10) is pretty consistent overall.

If you want a good decent meal with personal service please don't go here. The wait staff is disengaged and the food for the price is lackluster. The restaurant itself is very nice. But that is it.

There was a fairly large group of us, about 14, and the wait staff seemed to have no idea who ordered what when our meals came out, so there was a lot of running around getting them to us. Later, when we had just finished...More
