I've been there a few times over the years.. on a semi-annual trek to NC via Warm Springs VA. Each time I've eaten at this place the service was kind of odd, like someone has just had a fight, or trying to keep something secret. I can overlook that.. if the food is good. The steaks are alright, in terms... More

I previously reviewed John's and mentioned that I always made it there at least once a year when we were at the Owner's Club but to my utter disappointment when I called for reservations they answered but informed me they were closed. I will truly miss the place as will all of the friends I have taken there but I... More

Visiting Hot Springs and Warm Springs, if you are not eating at the Homestead, your dining choices may be somewhat limited. When we asked our innkeeper about John's, he told us it was "good." We should have interpreted the lukewarm endorsement as a warning from someone trying to be polite. Unfortunately, that night, our first choice, The Waterwheel, had no... More

We were in Hot Springs, VA last month celebrating my birthday with family. We went to John's for some German food since we read that while a steakhouse, their German cuisine was very good. We asked to speak to the chef twice, and he never came out. The chef and owner are one in the same, and his wife is... More

Went with the wife while on a trip in the area because it was highly recommended by some friends, we had a pleasant meal, service was good and the view from the outside porch was amazing. I didn't think the food was great though it wasn't that it was bad it just wasn't what I normally expect when spending 50... More

Don't miss this wonderful authentic German restaurant. Fresh trout was also on the menu. The food is homemade and delicious, the hilltop view is fantastic and the owners are warm and welcoming. You will not be disappointed!!!

I have patronized three of the current owners restaurants throughout the last 27 years. The experience is the same, the food is hit or miss and the staff, (wife and daughter) are rude and condensending. The problem with the service is this family received a very large settlement from an accident years ago and does not depend on the restaurant... More

From the reviews we read, we weren't sure whether to eat at John's or not but decided to give it a chance as it was close to where we were staying. The restaurant has a great view of the mountains and we enjoyed watching the hummingbirds that were attracted to the feeder in the window. We were waited on by... More
