Johns Restaurant has been the 'go to' spot for breakfast for many years. They do serve lunch and dinner although I seem to frequent Johns for their hearty breakfast and excellent bottomless cup of coffee. They are always busy and the staff are great. Large breakfast menu with large portions. Love their 'breakfast skillet'....lots of potatoes, eggs and veggies. It... More

This place doesn't sell bacon they sell the illigitiment cousins and brothers of bacon. I grew up going to johns restaurant and I love it. A few cons to mention though. They don't have actual bacon. Like wth johns? Get bacon stupid. It can also be excruciatingly busy on weekends but they handle it fairly well.

If you like your eggs "lacy" & potatoes "cold", then you'll like John's.... Coffee & service are good & you'll probably run into someone you know. It's quite a popular spot but not the best of it's kind. Better food is just up the road.....

When our group arrived at this restaurant, we were led to an ice cold room. Wouldn't you think when you made a reservation ahead of time that they would turn the heat up! Personally, I like to take my jacket and gloves off to eat my dinner. The food is mediocre, not inexpensive and sloppily served. This isn't the first... More
