I love John's, the chicken Slovakia and Greek salad are the BEST! Only thing I have negative to say is I wish they had the pea soup 7 days a week....so YUMMY!

Ordered a salad. It was definitely a meal in and of itself. The place is always full but fortunately it is large so there is usually a seat to be found. There is also a large parking lot. Love the out of proportion map on the wall. Most unique. We shall be there again.

Stopped by for lunch on Sunday. Had Reubin special and clubhouse sandwich. Both were tasty and good value. Very good coffee!. Staff was slow to take our order but afterwards, the service was much better. Will definitely stop by again when in the area.

It was my first time in here, but probably my last. I had very unfriendly service. My waitress didn't even return. I was disappointed. You should check on these servers.

After entering Canada from the US in Sarnia, we ended up in this diner in Sarnia. The food is simple, but it is well prepared and offered at good prices. The menu includes a good choice of smaller sized menus for kids and senior citizens. Most dishes are offered including a starter (either salad or soup). If you're looking for... More

This is one of those places where the locals go. Great eggs Benny . Parking can sometimes be a challenge but the food is great and service is friendly. Sometimes it can be crowded and a bit noisy

Been here on several occasions with friends and family. Always enjoyed the food, and the price is fair. Service is good, and it has a good family environment.

I eat here often because I enjoy the food. My favourite breakfast is the Greek omlet. I like the fact that I can have tomatoes instead of home fries [I think there is a small extra charge.] The wait staff is friendly and efficient.

I first went to John's Restaurant when I moved to Sarnia in 1979. The food portion was really generous and satisfied the many truckers who plied the then Highway 7 passing through Sarnia. We are a regular breakfast customer in John's Restaurant which has managed to maintain it's generous breakfast special over the years. Our golfing buddies regularly have breakfast... More
