In need of Bar Rescue. 3 things that don't mix and terrible service. We walked in and there was a 3 piece band playing "Margarita Ville". I guess they were trying to serenade about 4 couples in the place, old and young. Then here comes the cranky server. We were just possibly wanting to get some sushi and join the... More

Following on from first our visit in November. Decided to try again and see if any improvement in the service. Sorry to say that the biggest problem this establishment has is the poor service and getting live music in will not be sufficient to make it a regular haunt for a night out. Sat for at least 15 minutes with... More

Love the food and ambiance, sad to say last Friday they had jam night and let some too loud heavy metal group there that brought their friends and turned the place into a drinking bar, we love to go there for a night and listen to groups but if this continued we would not return, ruined our night out

We went to Johnny's for dinner and waited 40 minutes to get our drinks.....my husband received his appetizer after the main course even though we asked 3 times for it......seems very disorganized and we won't return.

sushi is disgusting, other food is greasy and soggy. They used to run a brick pizza oven, however they no longer fire it. Far to expensive for the quality of food and drink they put out.

First visit here but will go back. Meal for 4 people with a couple of drinks was a bit pricey. Food was good but service a bit slow. A bit more up market than the other places I have tried in Campbell River. If you want a relaxing night with friends give a try but if in a rush go... More

Had dinner with a small group. Menu has a great choice of light and more substantial dishes with an Asian flavor. Great drink menu, too. Service was attentive. Presentation classy. Relaxed feel.

We were excited to try Johnny's for the first time but left very disappointed and felt terrible for sending food back. The sushi rolls were mushy and wet.....not at all edible. We were not impressed that our server questioned us when explaining that the food was not acceptable....we were gagging trying to get it down! Tip to restaurants: If you... More
