Jack Astor's Bar & Grill
144 Front Street West
M5J Toronto, Canada
NileGuide Expert tip:
If you are a garlic bread connoisseur, you must try the garlic pan bread at Jack's. Although not the most health-conscious item on the menu, it is certainly worth trying at least once, although you may be hooked on it eternally.
Definitely a favourite on the list of sports bar and grills for many reasons. The lighting is dark, the setting is casual, and the garlic pan bread is to die for. People make trips to Jack Astor's for this famed bread alone.
As far as the menu goes, there are traditional bar and grill items that will fill your hunger gap like burgers and delicious hand-pulled pizza, but Jack Astor's also makes an effort to be worldly, offering pretty decent Pad Thai and crunchy Greek salad.
The patio at this location is great in the summer, with its own outdoor bar and plenty of people-watching opportunities. It is in close proximity to attractions like the Hockey Hall of Fame
, Harbourfront Centre
and CN Tower
