This place is open omly from 7 to 9. We made reservations for 8.15 not knowing the opening hours. From 8.45 the serving staff really tried to push us. They expect you to eat an expensive dinner within 45 minutes including dessert or coffee. Very dissappointing. The 2 points are for the excellent steak, otherwise no points at all!

Had friends from Amsterdam here in town. made a reservation for 8;00 pm. They wanted a good steak. Janko's has a great cut of beef.. we were rushed through the entire meal. if they would have told us we needed to come at 7:00 so we could enjoy ourselves we would have went earlier. My friends from Holland said they... More

Little Zagreb has long had the best and biggest steaks in Bloomington, but the menu is now supplemented by seafood (usually Mahi-mahi). However you wish your steak cooked, it comes out perfectly. All meals arrive with complementary salad and baked potato. It is worth considering the mushrooms and/or meatballs (spicy!!) as an appetizer, although they might mean you take more... More

...and if you don't mind being packed in there like sardines and rushed service to turn the table, it's a very good restaurant to please the meat eater and the vegetarian. But it's pricey! With a glass of wine, one appetizer and two entrees, the bill was over $100 for two people. I think it is a good place to... More

Noticed this restaurant in a guide book and were excited to try it out since I have a cousin named Janko who lives in Zagreb. Well, dinner was good but I guess I was expecting Something more authentic. Very casual, friendly staff and very much a college town vibe.

You should know: If you aren't getting steak, this probably won't be a place you are excited about, but if you like a good steak dinner, it is a good choice in Bloomington! Also, if you aren't planning to pay for an expensive dinner, you will have sticker shock. Trip Advisor is about knowing before you go and many of... More

I don't care why you're in town but you have to eat here. It's nothing to look at from the outside but the food is great. I have eaten here several times. Check groupon for a discount, little expensive, but you will leave full!

The look of this restaurant is of a diner with its red and white checkerboard tablecloths, but the taste of the food was more upscale. My husband ordered a steakburger, and it was 2-inches thick! I ordered the steak kabob which was delicious. The service was excellent; Kate and Alexis were on top of everything the whole time and hustled... More
