Love this place. Great food, great service and the atmosphere is so nostalgic for us Baby Boomers! Prices are reasonable but very good if you watch the specials and coupon deals. Reservations not required but may be better on the weekends.

Family restaurant that was passed down a generation, but we are happy to report the quality is still there. Greeted by a nice hostess who we had called earlier, we were seated... More

Johnny's Cafe was a 70s vintage steakhouse in Omaha where the old stockyards had been years ago. The inside decor was complete with plush leather booths, murals and cool lighting. I was wondering if we would see Warren Buffet there. You could definitely see that this was a happening place where many business deals had gone down. We were passing... More

The prime rib with fresh horseradish was really very good, so if you're looking for good beef, you can get it here for a decent price. The side dishes and the decor are straight out of the 70s, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's kind of fun in a nostalgic way. The iron work on the entry door... More
