Sat on the patio which was okay in furniture and cleanliness but a bit cluttered. Service was okay, though refill for a soft drink was a little late. Food was nicely displayed but quality was just okay.

The food on their summer menu is amazing! So many good choices it was hard to choose! We all really enjoyed our food! It wasn't very busy on a Monday night, but we had great attentive service.

Hi Amanda6218, Thanks a bunch for your feedback! I'm happy to hear you like our new summer menu! If you haven't tried them already, I highly recommend the Bombay Chicken Skewers - it brings our famous chicken fingers to a whole new level of flavor. See you back soon, Darce L, Jack Astor's Marketing More

We liked this place. Our waitress was helpful and friendly. The food was good and plentiful. I had a burger that was very good. From where I was sitting I had a view of the kitchen. I was mesmerized. Watching the very busy chefs prepare many dishes. Wow can they move and without bumping into each other. They know what... More

They use just the right moves to make sure you get the perfect meal every time! And who can dance without some great tunes? We like to keep the music bump'n because it's always a party at... More
