Hanging out at Lansdowne Park is especially fun in the summertime, with all the busy patios, but it's great year-round, too, whether you're enjoying breakfast with the family or a girls night out after a football game.
When I received an invitation from Jack Astor's Lansdowne to come in with my husband and a group of friends so they could treat us to their delicious new menu, I said yes right away. Obviously!
I love the service at Jack Astor's, (shout out to our awesome server, Courtney!) and the fun atmosphere. Jack Astor's in the Glebe has the traditional "Elvis booth" they have in each of their locations, and they have some great display cases featuring very cool antique artifacts from around Ottawa. I loved their wall of antique camera, too—we were seated right under this wall.
As soon as you walk through the doors, you're guaranteed a great night, delicious food, and plenty of laughs.
With 40 beers on tap (yes, 40!) and a great wine selection, deciding what to drink might take you longer than a few minutes, and then figuring out what to eat will be an even harder decision, but not to worry—you can't go wrong, no matter you order.
We LOVED the bruschetta, the garlic pan bread (oh, so good) and the nacho boards, and we each enjoyed our own meals, too—from steaks and burgers to sauced-up chicken fingers, (fresh, never frozen, breaded in-house and made to order) we were stuffed. In a good way. But of course, we left room for dessert, because we had to try the My Cookie Ate Your Brownie. It was exactly that; a brownie, inside a cookie. I can't even explain it, so you'll have to go try it for yourself. It's worth every single calorie, I promise you that. With a side of frozen cream, (which tasted just like french vanilla ice cream) it's quickly become one of my favourite desserts of all time.
The next time you're trying to figure out where to go for a great night out? A night that's sure to deliver great food, great drinks and plenty of laughter? Head to Jack Astor's in the Glebe. You'll love it as much as we did.
Thank you, Jack Astor's, for treating me to such a wonderful night. We had the best time. Can't wait to come in again!
