Great Appetizers

Fun place, Had appetizers for lunch then went back for dinner. Lunch was awesome. Dinner was Ok , I had the fish it smelled old and was greasy. GF had the buffalo and liked it. It is very noisy, not a good place if you want to visit in a quite location.

Came for a late lunch/early dinner ordered the crispy artichoke hearts as an appetizer and the burger basher burger with the signature garlic fries. Artichokes were very good, great sauce, nice and crispy but not greasy. The burger was amazing, the meat so flavorful. Totally recommend! Come hungry though, could have skipped the appetizer we left "Thanksgiving stuffed"! Totally worth... More

We like this place for dining and drinks. Its a fun place to go to in Santa Rosa, and one of our favorite restaurants for Guy Fieri (Food TV). This past time we had their coconut shrimp and sliders. Service was good.

Johnny Garlic's has become a mandatory stop on our family trips to NorCal. My kids have always enjoyed going to "Guy's restaurant" and I can't fault them: kids' meals are delicious with lots of healthy options. Some of my favorites are the ahi dinner entree, rib eye, ahi won tacos, and the lamb sliders. Garlic fries are to die for... More

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 relaxed.

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
