Nice breakfast!

My first visit here. Won't be my last! Enjoyed the hash! Eggs were poached perfectly. Coffee wasn't great but the orange juice was awesome! Will eat here again next time I'm in the neighborhood.

Nothing Special just good food at a decent price. We had the pancakes and eggs, and while they were good they were nothing special. Better options down the road for sure.

Came here with family to try out Johnny Boy's and wish I didn't. We walked in and was met with the hostess who told us we could only eat at the bar despite there being tables open. When we asked her about it she said a group of three cant sit at a six person long table. The bar stools... More

My wife and I stopped by on the way through Rutland. She had eggs, hash browns, etc and everything was great. I had the monte cristo which was exceptional. It came with maple syrup to dip the sandwich in. I couldn't get enough. I will back for that sandwich. The icing on the cake was the excellent waitstaff.

It's breakfast, served up about how an average person could do at home. Nothing special here. Nothing tastes "extra good. And if pancakes is their specialty, give me something 'special' about them. This was like Bisquick on a good day. Skip this place (there's a reason there is no line outside the door) and go down the road a bit... More

I wish I could get a breakfast like this where we live! I had the breakfast burrito and a side of hash. I excepted canned hash but this was homemade and AMAZING! The portions are also huge so I had to have half boxed which could have been a normal portion itself. Husband and I joked we should have just... More

Warning - this is definitely not your usual commercial franchise pancake house. Johnny Boy's gets 5 stars for comfort and atmosphere. Food is great, and the staff is definitely fun and accomodating. Who would think such a neat place would be right on Route 4 in Rutland?

Have eaten here for breakfast and lunch. Always had a great meal. The staff is very accommodating, if you don't see exactly what you want, just ask. Sunday's is brunch all day: mimosas, omelets, Eggs Benedict, all yummy!
