Quick and friendly

I've eaten here before and enjoyed breakfast so what the heck, came for dinner and took advantage of the "all day breakfast" menu. Good food, big portion, $5 pint of beer. Definitely coming back.

Johns restaurant is a great place to go for breakfast. Honestly you might have to wait for a few minutes to be seated but it's worth the wait. Also, they only serve peamale bacon not strip. Yum yum.

The past three visits here for us, me in particular, have been pleasantly satisfactory. The grilled chicken Canadian (with pemeal bacon, mashed spuds with gravy, and a nice cold cranberry juice, plus the Starter of salty Beef Noodle soup), yet mostly the company of Friends, KZ & PT.

Okay, when I thought of John's..I thought breakfast. So I went in to see what all the hype was about...I was shocked, they have a great beer tap and THE BEST TACOS. Get the Goat Cheese Steak tacos now!! What are you waiting for?

This is a popular and busy spot. The menu is the hearty,home style country diner. Lot's of carbs. Large portions of meat, potatoes, gravy.....not so much on fresh fruits and veggies. I did not find much on the menu to appeal to a light or vegetarian diet. The atmosphere is family friendly.

John's is our preferred spot for a great fast breakfast or dinner. Value is good, service usually the fastest around, unless training. Georges apple pie is the best I have ever had, including the Dutch apple we had this Summer in the Netherlands.

If you've ever lived in Sarnia, you've been to John's. It's one of the most classic places to have breakfast in the area with a classic Diner feel to it. The 2 egg breakfast never disappoints and is quite cheap in cost. Although I'm not a fan, the Canadian bacon is it's claim to fame.

Have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Food is great and service is friendly. Famous enough for their breakfasts but I love their hot turkey sandwich.

Always a great meal. Great service. Great soups and Great theme nights. Greek night rocks. Chicken souvlaki is the best! Great high school job! My teenage son boasts about their rocking burgers! My hubby likes all of it. My favourite time and time again is the chicken souvlaki with the soup or salad and dessert, usually baklava. Yum!! Oh yes,... More
