Friendly service, nice buzzing environment, so-so food. Pretty consistent with the two locations I tried in Ottawa. My kid likes the burger kids meal so we keep coming back. Plus there regular promos for purchases of gift cards, so at the end ok value overall.

Like all the other Jack Astor's but with the added bonus of the rooftop patio overlooking the market.
