“Convenient Location, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Great food and drinks located close to the Fairfield Inn and DoubleTree. This restaurant has a nice variety of Italian dishes ranging from lighter fare to very heavy, hearty pastas. Service was attentive and helpful. I actually ate here two nights in a row since it was so good the first night.

“Great Meal in Des Moines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

I don't get to Des Moines very often but when I do I enjoy the food at Johnny's down by the airport. I took a little while to get service last night but when we finally got service we were very pleased. The French Onion soup is a compliment to any meal. Our server was Trey and he was fantastic.

“My kinda place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

The restaurant had a wonderful "Rat Pack" vibe with pictures of great singers and stars of that era. The music was soothing and pleasant.

The service was wonderful as was the food. The restaurant was fantastic. I went back the next day to try a sandwich instead of searching for another lunch place in the area. It was excellent.

“The best steakhouse in Des Moines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

In my opinion, Johnny's is the best steakhouse in Des Moines. The selection is excellent for both steak lovers and for those who prefer other food. Excellent service and delicious food. I had the house salad, fillet mignon with vegetables. I highly recommend this restaurant for those visiting Des Moines.

“Johnny's is always fantastic (Both locations)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

We took a group of employees in early Feb. 2014 to the east location near Jordan Creek. (had reservations) The service was second to none. Everyone loved their meal and still talk highly of it. For the variety to foods ordered, it was prepared very timely and tasty.

Later if Feb 2014 took family to the location on Fleur near the airport. Stopped in later in the evening with out a reservation and did not have to wait at all. Service, food & atmosphere again could not have been better.
Fantastic restaurants!!
