This is a typical pub/restaurant eatery with standard sandwich/entrée selections. The most notable feature of this location is the rooftop patio dining area. Great view of the harbor. Note that in Canada all burgers are done well - no medium or medium-rare.

While Jack Astor's cuisine is nothing remarkable, the location in downtown Kingston is a stand out due to it's rooftop patio. Great views of market square. Service and food were adequate.

We went to Jack Astor's to enjoy a lunch on the roof. We really enjoyed the view and had a good lunch. Service was good.

I love the rooftop. I can see the city hall, enjoy the weather and food there. I liked the fajita, it's definitely worth the price. Nachos, garlic bread, burger and cheesecake are also my favourites. Staff are so friendly.

This place is a blast. Go and spend sometime there and people watch. Servers are awesome and a great selection of food and drinks. The roof top bar is worth the wait.

Ranked at 107 is ridiculous. Service is great and friendly and you are not served by only one dedicated server....as many as 3 different ones will be around your table. The food is typical roadhouse...some very... More
