“Great Breakfast Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

This restaurant is located close to State Fair Park in Milwaukee so my friends and I go there before activities at the park. They have a large menu with lots of daily specials. Service is friendly and food is very good in ample portions. They keep the coffee coming. Nice!

“Extensive menu, great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We went to Johnny V's on the recommendation of a family member who said it was a Mexican restaurant. We thought the name was odd for a Mexican restaurant but went there anyway. Given that we were expecting Mexican food and found were at a family style restaurant we forged on. Typical family style fare an extensive menu with a little of everything. It was a Friday so we all ordered a fish fry. The potato pancakes were a bit bland but well cooked, not greasy. The fish was spotty, some of the beer battered fish was excellent, some a bit overdone and dry. The staff was very attentive.

“Great Food, Tiny Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This morning was the day to try out Johnny V's Classic Cafe and now I wonder why we waited so long. (mostly distance) There is a very nice breakfast section on the menu and after looking at the breakfast specials and the low prices we were concerned that we might have chosen a place with tiny portions. However, were we ever surprised when our meals arrived overflowing the plates.

The food was well prepared, arrived HOT, and quite delicious. It had taken a while for the waitress to show up to take our order but I'll gladly wait that long if that's how you get HOT food at the table. They offer AYCE specials daily -- we arrived for breakfast, not the AYCE.

I'm sure we'll be back. What better review can you give than a return to the restaurant? Nice family run joint, with a 50's rocky-rolly theme and happy customers.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a very nice meal at this cafe. We went on a Saturday and it turned out to be their "All you can eat shrimp" day. They offered boiled w/shell on or fried shrimp and my husband enjoyed it very much. I had their gyro and there was so much meat that I had to take more than half home. We plan on going back soon. Go you won't be sorry.
