Guy Fieri, this place is a winner! But they aren't kidding about the garlic--whole cloves in the mashed potatoes and the garlic Parmesan French fries were very flavorful. Staff were friendly and helpful, keeping the drinks quickly topped off. The buffalo meat loaf was fantastic. The Mediterranean flatbread great. All the portions were plentiful. Make sure to have the bread... More

At a table i was immediately waited on with a great smile. The smells and decoration where to stay and eat very comfortable. All kinds of meats available including wild... More

We love Guy Fieri and have visited the restaurants he shows on D,D and Ds whenever we can. So we were very excited to visit the original Johnny Garlic's. It was not at all what we hoped for. The restaurant is kind of shabby and needs a renovation badly. We were willing to overlook that, because we figured that it... More

Restaurant in a convenient location, although the parking lot is minuscule and difficult to access. Quickly seated for dinner. Interesting specials but menu was somewhat smaller in selections than expected; food quality good, but not exceptional.

We've heard about it for years it was supposed to be great but somehow we'd never gotten there until a couple of weeks ago. It was a Thursday night, but we walked in and the place was empty. Should have been a sign. I seem to recall looking at a menu online a few years ago and it said something... More

ok place to eat but there are far better places. This is all hype. The service is good but the food falls short. I'm a Guy Fieri fan and I was disappointed all the times I've eaten here and that is more than a few.

When my daughter and I walked into the cylindrical building and were escorted through the bar area to the restaurant we were very surprised to see one table of 4 people eating there. Our waitress was very nice. After about 10 minutes she came back to tell me that the cook said they were out of ribs and suggested a... More
