This is a superb steakhouse with a magnificent wine list. The decor leaves a bit to be desired but it is very "Hoosier" and full of Bloomington-culture on the walls. A must go place while in Bloomington!

We have been to Janko's several times. Most recently they had a lamb chop special. They were out of this world. At New Years' we had the New York Strip and Petite Filet, along with lobster tails. The steaks are ALWAYS perfect. They have a Wine Spectator award winning wind list - and best of all at much lower markups... More

Went here based on many recommendations from hotel staff and friends. Glad we did! It is a typical college looking spot and the decor is certainly laid back. That being said, had a great bottle of wine and one of the best rib-eyes I've had in a long time. My younger son got the meatballs which were great but were... More

No question the steak is superb and the service is very attentive. The salad and dinner rolls take away from the experience however. For the price give me a decent salad that isn't wilted and drowning in dressing and a dinner roll on par with the steak.

I've had steaks all over the world, and I've never had a better steak than at Janko's. Sure, the tables are covered in cheap red and white checked tablecloths. And yes, the decor is IU sports posters. The dinner rolls are out of a bag. It can be crowded and noisy. But wow, do they know how to cook a... More

Always delicious food. Busy, noisy, cramped atmosphere but the great food, wine, and service make it worth a visit whenever we are in Bloomington!

Janko's is another Bloomington landmark that you've got to experience. Friendly and efficient wait staff; good food with generous portions; a great atmosphere. I hesitated to go there because of its reputation as a great place for steak, but they've got several options on the menu for vegetarians, so now I am happy to go there. The meatballs, for you...

I cannot say enough about the quality of this steak house. Best steaks I have had anywhere. Meatballs are so hot and awesome. Only wish they had a full bar, only limited beer and a lot of wine.

This was my first time at Janko's, although I grew up in Bloomington, and I have to say I had one of the best steaks ever. I had the rib eye, which is this huge 20 oz steak. It was cooked to perfection. I asked for well done, and although there was no pink, the meat was really tender, which... More

I don't know why this place has a great reputation! It has terrible decor and is really noisy. You cannot hear the people sitting at your own table. The choices are very limited. The salad is just lettuce poured from a bag. It is expensive and I have had way better steaks elsewhere. We also felt rushed. I am sure... More
