We were going out for dinner on my last night of vacation, but after a long day spent at the Ann Arbor VS we were tired and decided to stay close to home. We decided to try Smokin Johnny V 's well the wait staff sucks not knowing what alcohol they have, beer lists printed off of a computer and... More

Very sorry about your experience. I actually came out to talk to you due to the fact that your server was smart enough to come get me knowing you were not happy that we didn't carry French dressing or the beer you requested. I wanted to make things right with you. Hopefully you'll give us a second chance. You can... More

I had a good steak and mashed potatoes, but the restaurant was so noisy that I could not talk with the person I was with. This was partially caused by the echoes from all the hard surfaces, but also by a noisy, boisterous, and drunk group at the next table. Would be willing to try it again; maybe lunchtime would...

I went here with my girlfriend on a Thursday night. We both got the carnivore picnic. The cornbread was by far the best cornbread I have ever tasted. The pulled pork was cold. I asked the waitress if it is normally served cold at this restaurant, she said no and walked away. The brisket was good, but not worth writing... More

The sign at the road was easy to spot, but when you pulled in to the parking lot it was confusing as to where the restaurant was - the back building. The inside was fabulously decorated. The food was great and we tried all 4 sauces. I tried the brisket, pulled pork, brat, baby back ribs. The five of us... More

Hi There! I just wanted to drop you a line and express our thanks for coming in to SJV's! I'm glad you enjoyed everything! Next time you're in, ask for no seasoning on the fries! That's how I eat them...with some salt, and lots of ranch! We appreciate the wonderful review. We take pride in this place and especially in... More

Only place in Owosso/Corunna area for decent BBQ. Highly recommend carnivore picnic, good for 2 people. Would have rated higher, but sometimes the food isn't as hot as I'd like. Great prices.

Coming back to Johnny V's, we tried the ribs this time, since being underwhelmed by the other BBQ offerings on our first visit. The ribs were simply outstanding, this is what I will order here going forward. We sat on the patio, which needs something to boost the atmosphere. Music, some type of decor (you stare at a blank wall),... More

Yesterday was our second visit to this restaurant. I know that many think it is fabulous but to me, it is nothing special. They specialize in smoked barbeque which is quite good but I think the prices are a little high and service isn't very fast. We waited about 1/2 hour for the food after ordering. My daughter ordered the... More

Stopped on a Saturday, 2 tables were full. Four tables were not cleaned and stayed dirty until we left. There was nothing but a black screen on the tvs. The waiter Nick walked by many times without even acknowledging we were there. The food is good but these clown servers are giving this place a bad name. Good beer on... More
