I am at a loss for words. The food was decent, but the atmosphere and service left something to be desired. There is 1 server who is also the bartender, hostess etc. etc. We actually wondered if she made the food too!!!

My family always makes this at least one nights dinner out when we are at the Owner's Club. The food is very good and I love the German dishes which I can't get very often elsewhere. You have to order the fried onions. They are light and addictive. Decent wine selection at very reasonable prices.

Took a chance by leaving the grounds of The Homestead and venture out to try something new. We found John's Steakhouse online and called ahead. Upon arrival, it looked like a great place, patio area, great views as the website describes. Once seated, we were a little uncertain as to stay or cut our losses as it seemed it was... More

The owners have tried to sell the place for several years and their indifference to the customers is telling. Ordering a steak is a safe bet but I'd worry about the seafood offerings. I had the salmon and it was very bland, my wife ordered the meat loaf and it was ok. Service was provided by the wife and her... More

Would you like to go to a restaurant and experience the service in the style of 1970s’ Communist Soviet Union? You don't need a time machine - welcome to John's Steakhouse. Our waitress (who happened to be an owner’s daughter - very tall gal, you won’t miss her) barely managed to take the order, and then disappeared for an hour.... More

From the moment they tried to squeeze our reservation for 7 into a table they laid for 6 to when the owners daughter said they she would call the police if we did not pay for what had already been delivered to the table this meal and restaurant was a disaster. We have never, ever been treated so poorly. The... More

The owners wife is mean, intrusive, and does not believe in customer service. She shows no respect for the servers. We were supposed to get bread but never got it . My meal also came with a salad but did not get it either. I was appalled by the total lack of courtesy by the owners wife.

This was our second time at this restaurant. We usually go there as a side trip from the Homestead. We always order the German food so cannot address the quality of the steaks. The wienerschnitzel, red cabbage and pea soup were excellent and of more than ample portions. Unfortunately, the service was erratic and shared between the owner's wife and... More

I've never been treated so poorly. My weekend in the area I visited two nice restaurants and ordered filet mignon at both. Mine here was over cooked, when asked to replace it with the correct order, the owner blamed the chef and eventually brought me a properly cooked but poorly flavored steak. The quality was so poor and the atmosphere... More

Ate there on Monday night July 30, 3012 I should of walked out as soon as we sat down. We sat in the back of the Restaurant and we immediately noticed about 8 very large flies hovering around the window. The waitress was new and did not know the menu or what kind of beer they had. I ordered the... More
