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.

Jack Astor's is always one of my preferred restaurant at the end of a busy day when I travel for work. This place is casual, fun and relax. The food is also casual but always freshly made. If you like chicken wings and chicken fingers,...More
