Headed downtown on a Saturday evening for what I was told was the best chicken fingers in town. They are very very tender and flavorful, and the restaurant now serves them with honey dill sauce (as it should be in Manitoba!) Lots and lots of shoestring fries come with as well. Very nice spot - ambiance is nicer here than... More

I recall hearing about this place and even though having lived in Winnipeg for many years never eaten here. It wasn't their busy time of day I assume. There were very few people in there but...

We arrived pretty late in the evening and the bartender was still very friendly to greet us and serve us. We were grateful that they were open and still serving. Also there was a very good atmosphere - entertaining crowd - at the bar that night!

I love Caesar salad, and I've tried dozens of them. Johnny G's claims to have the best in town, but no, they don't have the best. I would say it was good at best and sorry but that doesn't even make my top 10. Aside from the salad being sorely misrepresented, the burgers were fantastic! Daughter ordered the chicken fingers...

I couldn't believe the portions! Huge. The fries were homemade and the burgers were outstanding. It was diner fair but still really good.

Johnnys os the best. Great people and a nice atmosphere. Best chicken fingers and fries. Large portions with great flavour. Awesome club house as well. My kids love the Greek salad.

A relaxed atmosphere. Good food with my husband as my date! Also went here 19 years ago with my wedding attendants. Was a great evening of laughter and good food!

I dropped in for a light supper before the ball game. There wasn't much in the way of vegetarian fare so I opted for the Onion Soup. It was OK but nothing extraordinary. Service was also OK..nothing exceptional.
