The classic Cheeseburger was our choice from the menu. It was cooked to perfection. The French fries were the appropriate amount. We left very satisfied with our meal. One small complaint was that it was 30 degrees out and the restaurant had air conditioners on. Had to keep my coat on to avoid the draft on my neck and back.

The tables are covered in thick white drawing paper and crayons are provided. Genius! The atmosphere is fun and eclectic. The menu is full of variety and I haven't been disappointed with a dish so far. I can close my eyes, blindly point at a menu item, and know whatever I pick will be delicious. The dessert menu is OK... More

Had dinner here after a long work day. Our server was very friendly. I had a salad which was good. My coworker had the pad Thai was not good and our server was great about getting her something else quickly.

While on a tournament, we went as a group of 40 people to Jack's (with reservations). They seated us quickly and staff came after a few minutes to take our orders. Food came out quickly and it tasted good. Very efficient, friendly and helpful staff! This was one of the few restaurants in Buffalo that we could find to accommodate... More

Both the food and the service was better than expected. I visited with my 12 year old son and our entire experience was positive. Food prices are very reasonable.

After our first game of our round robin for the hockey tournament we were in town for approximately 20 kids and adults decended on the Jack Astors for lunch unannounced for lunch. The staff was great - pulling tables together for us and getting our orders out quickly and correctly. My Pad Thai was really good and my son thoroughly... More

I haven't been to Jack Astor's for a meal in over 10 years. I don't live close and I avoid the Galleria Mall. BUT since I was meeting a friend for lunch during the week we gave it a try. No wait, and the food was great! I had the chicken club with fries and my friend had roasted red... More

The hamburgers are really good. My son got the bbq burger and said it was awesome and I got the bacon burger I liked it because it tasted like it came right off the grill. Cooked medium just the way I like it and the fries are really good I never finish my fries but I did this time. We... More

We went to Jack Astor's for dinner during the Christmas holidays. The mood was festive, the clientele was a good mix of families, couples and friends. Service was quick and efficient, with smiling and helpful staff. Food was excellent, with good serving size. Dessert choices were disappointing though, as everything had chocolate. No fruity options (apple pie would have been... More
