“Excellent homemade food downtown North East, PA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

It's a must visit location when visiting North East. Homemade food, quaint restaurant just off main street. Very good weekly specials, fast service and great fully stocked bar. Booth/table seating and theres live music from time to time. Took my parents there from time to time as well and had the Alfredo with chicken and it was very good. They had the schrimp scampi and Chicken parmesan and both were great too. Local wine selection, beer and liquor. Street or lot parking right next door. Looking forward to this summer's visit and eating there again.

“Decent meal and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We had dinner last weekend at Johnny's B's while visiting in North East. It is a cute diner-style restaurant with a lot of charm. The service was excellent and the staff was super friendly. I ordered the chicken parm (neopolitan style with alfredo sauce) and my husband had the chicken alfredo. We were definitely splurging that night. Both meals were pretty good, but the alfredo sauce is extremely heavy (way heavier than even your typical alfredo) and my chicken was really greasy. Again, it tasted great but just seemed uneccesarily saturated with fat. There were plenty of other healthier options available, though, and all the meals I saw looked great. Overall, I would recommend Johnny B's for a decent relaxing meal.

“Food Quality Terrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Ordered Broccoli Cheese Soup, Cajun Chicken Alfredo Entree, and side salad.

Broccoli Cheese Soup - serve cold needed to be reheated took 5-6 minutes.

Cajun Chicken Alfredo Entree - the sauce was 90% heavy cream no cheese flavor, Ended up pouring 1/2 the Romano cheese bottle into the dish for flavor still was bad. Macaroni was hard. The chicken was fatty and cold.

Side salad was served in a plastic bowl that was chipped also had to clean the utensils.

This restaurant does not deserve to listed with the Erie Fine Dinning Club as we are member's of. Johny B's did nothing to correct our bill and automatically charged our bill with 20% gratuity.

The Erie Fine Dinning Club too will hear about their recommendation of this hole in the wall of a restaurant. We will never recommend this restaurant.

Great value with excellent food. Excellent food choices on menu . Service was excellent as well and very accommodating for our larger group. The wines are good and beer is cold.
