the steak was cooked to perfection (nice and juicy) and the potatoes made a nice side without being very mushy.
We went to John's Grill for lunch as part of an annual holiday get-together. Dungeness Crab salads and cocktails/wine perfect as always. Service perfect and despite being pretty full at lunch time on Saturday in the holiday we weren't rushed in anyway. Lunch prices more reasonable than dinner. Great tradition!
3 of us stopped in for Lunch! Service awesome, Steamed Clams and Sole was properly prepared and Delicious. Waiter even said bringing extra bread for Clams. Another enjoyable time at Johns Grill.
My daughter and I went to John's Grill for lunch before going to the theater. The setting is wonderfully "olde-tyme" with lots of wood, quaint decor, etc. We liked the choices on the menu.

Had a delicious seafood roll and crab bisque. The service was attentive and friendly. This is a classic steakhouse experience (meaning... More
We were pretty disappointed with our dinner here. It was a busy night, for sure, but we felt like we were having our meal on a freeway. Every time someone walked by I was afraid that the wine bottle would be knocked over. Our table for two was so small that I had to ease my plate over the edge... More
This restaurant was 2 blocks from our hotel. We were jet lagged and just wanted a quick dinner without reservations or long waits. Food was on par with an Outback Steakhouse, but about 20% higher prices that you would expect in a prime location. Wine by the glass added up fast at $14-16 per glass and small pours.
I'd wanted to dine here forever, and finally got the chance with an "early" before theater dinner Friday night. It IS a place with some history, lots to look at on the walls, an the downstairs was bustling when we arrived for our reservation. We were directed to the 2nd floor, and seated at a table for 2, in a... More
