We were a big Crowd and still my food was good.

there were 15 of us, the service was excellent, the food was good. Not great but good. Prices are decent, it is a pretty good meal all in all.

Before coming here, I showed hubby the other John's Italian restaurant in the area but he plugged in this restaurant's on his iPhone GPS because of the same name and boom! we got here instead. I started to look around because it didn't look like the one from the website. We first walked in to the bar area and saw... More

We come back to John's at least once a year while visiting Promised Land. The portions are huge and the prices are reasonable. Food is adequate and service is OK. It feels like the staff is a little slow picking up after diners who have already left which is a little bothersome. It can be difficult to park during busy... More

Although John's serves the usual restaurant fare my husband and I went primarily for Pasta Night which is every Tuesday. For under ten dollars you have a choice of 4 different pastas and 9 sauces with salad, Italian bread and dipping sauce. They advertise that it is "all you can eat" but my serving of spagetti and meat balls was... More

My husband and I like to go to John's Italian Restaurant a couple of times a month. We love the bar, the pizza, the daily specials, the prices are very reasonable. The owner is very nice. The staff is very friendly. We always get great food, great service, great prices.

I didn't expect a menu or the food to taste like real Italian food in the Poconos. But wow, they sure serve up real Italian dishes with the right taste and texture. Look, those who had pizza loved it, it was good, but nothing compares to New York Pizza.

Stopped in while at Lake Wallenpaupack. Restaurant was DIRTY, and little/no air conditioning on a hot July evening. Dirty table, dust on the mouldings around the walls,grease or something on wall, dirty ceiling tiles, a/c vents caked with dust and I was given a dirty "bread plate". There were bottles of mayonnaise on every table, did I mention it was... More

The wait staff are loud, rude and nasty. Just by hearing the way they scream at each other. The food on the other hand is easier to look at. But there is no flavor, you can tell the kitchen just sends out whatever even if it isn't cooked all the way. On top of it all the restaurant has a... More
