The staff at this restaurant were extremely uninviting, very poor communication skills, and acted as if they do not depend on tips. I live walking distance from this restaurant, and I would gladly drive to eat somewhere else. Don't even support this business.

I truly do not know how this restaurant got the bad reviews. My husband and I have been there many times and have never been disappointed. The food and service was great!! Great view of the lake. They also have great specials. We look forward to going back. You must try the pretzel sandwich....so good. Also best French fries we... More

Yeah it used to be called the Belleville Grill, now it's "Johnny's." The name changes every couple of years but the horrible food and service remain the same. You will hear this a lot from people shaking their heads leaving this place--"What a great spot this would be, right on the lake and everything." Our last visit will be just... More

We stopped with friends who were between flights and had lots of time. It was a good thing. They were also hosting a wake at the best seats overlooking the lake. It took a long time to get our orders. Phillie Cheese Steak was very good. Salad was large and cold. 2 Prime Ribs were overdone. Waitress offered to redo... More

Well, as you can see the previous 2012 comments...it is definitely true. My husband and I tried to support the local restaurant after moving to the area a month ago, however, this was the worst place we had been to eat in a long time. We sat on the patio, which was infested with huge spiders (we just moved from... More

Every time I drive by Johnny’s Grill it’s pretty busy so we gave it a try on a Wednesday night. Our server was very friendly but our drinks and food took forever to arrive at our table. We had a "fan favorite" fish & chips and coconut shrimp. The items we ordered were NOT good, just tasted like old fryer... More

We ordered fan favorites thinking they would taste good. Wrong thing to do, the food took forever to come out the waitress was horrible and it seemed like she was the only one waiting on tables. The others were standing around doing nothing. We waited 45 minutes for our food and it was horrible. Nice view of the lake, but... More

We went on a Friday night, but Johnny's Belleville Grill was not busy. We were seated immediately, near the windows overlooking the lake. Our server arrived immediately, answered questions about beers on tap intelligently, and brought our drinks quickly. The menu is standard sports bar fare. Our group had a burger, two orders of fish and chips, and a chicken... More
