Good but spendy

Everyone in our group of 8 enjoyed their meals and desserts. I especially liked the Cajun chicken pasta. The peanut butter ice cream pie was wonderful and the bananas foster was tasty (leave off the candied bacon, it doesn't work). The staff was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was... read more

I love, love, love Guy. I have followed him as a riding star from his first appearance on the Food network and have eaten at many places he has featured in Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. I've never been dissapointed. Even with nothing but great experiences I figure at some point I'm going to hit a wall. At some point... More

The food is good. Nothing exceptional here. Went with a party of 5 for dinner during their happy hour. Luckily the happy hour specials were available throughout the restaurant not just the bar area. The regular priced items were overpriced for the quality and it appears that everyone must know this because the place cleared out at the end of... More

We been to Johney Garlic off Farmers lane last summer. The restaurant had many tv going of his traveling eating shows. I ordered meat loaf which wasso stuffed with fillers and it fell apart on my plate. The service was very poor. They say the Windsor Garlics is better. I haven,t checked it out.

I've eaten at the place a couple of times and each time the food has completely underwhelmed me. Chewy pastas, under seasoned and over fried appetizers- really I'd much rather save a couple of bucks and go to Chili's or Chevy's. That comment makes Chili's or Chevy's sound bad, but they aren't- they have the consistency and moderate quality that... More

[Read my letter and their response Below] I believe my letter Expressed enough for this manager to deal with this situation.. I would think twice if you were to have a party of 5 adults and three children and the bill that comes with sub-standard service and food. No, I will never try it again. What does the Day or...

Very good dinner! Our server was nice & attentive. Many menu items to chose from. The garlic soup is delicious. Garlicky even for a garlic lover like me! The rock shrimp appetizer was good as well. My only complaint was how cold the restaurant was. A staff member finally closed the doors to the patio after a man complained the... More

I so looked forward to going to Johnny Garlics. I am a fan of Guy Fierri and was excited to finally try this place after years of seeing it. I wish my experience was better. Maybe I was there on a bad day? I will try it again. The servers were great. The place was clean. The food was kind... More

This is a good little restaurant in a sort of a cold feeling setting the food was better than the atmosphere
