Wonderful homey cafe atmosphere with excellent food and service. You feel the ‘hug’ when you come through the front door and that feeling continues when you eat the food. The menu offers a broad range of options, and the wait staff does a great job...guiding you to the best plate to order. Johnny Ski is a great ambassador for value in Punta Gorda. We highly recommend you come here!More

We didn't do any other specialty dishes, we couldn't eat that much but our meals were delicious and the service was fabulous! Mary was wonderful and you can tell the operation is a finely tuned machine! Our food was worth the 15-minute wait and the...amount we paid for it.More

They provided great service from the moment we walked in the door. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. She knew the menu well and explained the difference between their country potatoes and hash browns and warned my son about the extra large sized pancakes. My...meat lovers omelette was delicious. Even the coffee was good. Believe the hype. Joe Ski’s is the REAL DEAL.More

Wait for a table and food was long but not unusual on Saturday morning. Our food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Best of all is the attentive service from Luz and other staff.

Delicious. Huge portions. Friendly. It ticked all the boxes for our party of 6! It’s popular so it was cramped and the amount of food vs. table room was a challenge. But that’s a good challenge to have!!

This place was booming and I now know why!!! It’s your neighborhood diner on steroids!! Quite possibly one of my favorite finds in PG this trip!! Our waitress was so down to earth, friendly and tons of personality!! The portions are ginormous! The pancakes are...as big or bigger than the plate and everything is made fresh!! We will definitely be going back!!More

Last weekend we tried John Ski's House of Breakfast in Punta Gorda. I had the southern chicken benedict and my wife had the meat lovers omelet. The omelet had so much meat in it that it spilled out as you cut into it. The food...was delicious and the portions were huge! You will not go hungry here. It was so good we went back again today. Highly recommend giving it a try!More
