Great Bar / Restaurant – This place is great. We had an excellent dinner with another couple then switched atmospheres to the bar area. Awesome music and cocktails. The bartenders were friendly and introduced themselves to us immediately. We'll be back to enjoy the different atmospheres.
WORST TO GO ORDERS – May 25, 2008
I drove 25 minutes to the restraunt to get an order of fajitas to go. The bar was not busy and there was no excuse for my order to be incorrect. The bartender assured me my order had been double checked and I left. Upon arriving home I realized that they had failed to include the tortills shells. Fajitas ARE NOT A COMPLICATED DISH. MEAT AND TORTILLA SHELLS. I'm thrilled that in a COMPLETEY EMPTY restraunt an entire kitchen could not get ONE to go order right, and the bartender was SO BUSY talking to her co-worker about how "wasted" she had gotten the night before that she too failed to make sure ONE HALF of the dish was included. I used to dine at Jack Astors several times a week, but it's apparent that the staff and service has gone DOWNHILL.
Awesome Awesome Awesome – We love the change in this place. The overall appearance is great. The food is really delicious and priced right. Most of the wait staff are accurate and pleasant. BUT the bar tenders are AWESOME with the speed of service, their personalities, they make you feel so welcome and comfortable. There are 2 guys and 2 girls that are just the BEST (you guys know who you are) and we look forward to seeing more of them. We are referring this place to all our friends.
So impressed! – A group of about 8 of us decided to go to Jack Astors to watch the kick-off of the NCAA tournaments. We ran into a bit of confusion over a reservation and our table (that the manager had set aside) was mistakenly given to the wrong group. However, he more than corrected the error by putting the game of our choice on the primary big screen! It was very impressive. The restaurant and bar have a nice feel and a great menu. Our waiter was outstanding and both managers checked on us several times throughout the evening.
We tend to frequent Carolina Ale house (which is right next door) for casual dinners, to watch games and just have a drink. However, all in our party agreed that the newly rennovated Jack Astors was great and we will be going back frequently!
Great food, great atmosphere! – I recently went to Jack Astor's in Cary. I hadn't been there since they renovated and it looks great! The food and atmosphere was so much fun and I definitely want to go back! They have a lot of events coming up that the bartender was telling me and my friends about that sound like a lot of fun. I am definitely going to check them out and you should too!
Cool place – This place is really chill and fun. It has good food and a bunch of TVs. It isnt a smoky sports bar though, it is kind of more upscale but families were there too. A great time and great food.
Wow'd – Amazing expierience from start to finish. I was greeted promptly by a hostess that was actually opening the door for me as I entered. I was taken to a large booth were I was greeted by my serever immediately. I had to laugh when our server wrote his name upside down on our table, it was very amusing. The server offered us a Lobster and Crab dip, and we accepted. It was very creamy, and an excellent dish. We then tried the Parmeasean Bowties, and a 12 oz steak. Both were delightful. For dessest we tried the homemade apple pie. Need I say more? Great expierience. I will be back.
