My husband and I seem to find ourselves there every couple of years. Just went for our anniversary. Husband always gets steak (and loves it) and I usually get some form of pasta. Prices are in line with the quality of food and portions. They...have a few menu items specific to Johnny's, so if you want Marilyn's Chanel # 5, you gotta go. Desserts are enormous. It's an older establishment but it has been updated and is very clean and well maintained so it doesn't have that sad, depressing, tired look so many older places do.More

This was always our favorite place to eat when visiting the Quad Cities until last night. To start it off we were seated at the end of the bar where the staff constantly goes by to the kitchen (the restaurant wasn’t full so there was...plenty of other seating). Staff left dishes, pitchers & the spray bottle with rag on the end of the bar in our view. The focaccia bread was warm but very doughy on the bottom. Calamari rings were okay but there were 3 large whole ones that were extremely tough. I ordered the petite filet. The presentation was wonderful but I took a bite & discovered it was a little over room temperature! I did tell the waitress about it and told her I wouldn’t send it back since I don’t like reheated steak. It was very flavorful but would have been so much better if it had been hot. I ordered Brussel sprouts on the side and they were hard, dried up with an awful flavor . We sent them back! My husband had the spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs and his food was very tasty.More

Three of us went to dinner on June 8. It was terrible from start to finish. After being seated, we waited a long time to see anyone. Our waitress finally appeared to take our drink order. After about 15 minutes, we got our ice tea...and water. Then about 15-20 minutes later, she brought us bread. In about 15-20 minutes, she came to take our order. We all ordered the Chubby-cut Sirloin and all prepared the same way, medium-well. We ordered two tossed salads and I order a spinach salad. In about 20 minutes, three tossed salads came instead of two tossed salads and a spinach salad. When one of the salads was given to my aunt, a tomato fell off onto the table. The waitress picked up the tomato and put it back on my aunt’s plate. She was horrified! I told the waitress that I was supposed to get spinach salad. She went to get one for me. In about 20 minutes she returned with my salad. My husband and aunt were finished eating their salads when mine came. When our dinner finally came, two of the three steaks were about an inch and a half thick while my steak was maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch think. These were supposed to be 9 oz.. Maybe two of them were that large but my steak was not even half the size of the others. We each cut into our steaks. My husband’s steak was as he liked it, my aunt’s steak was very bloody, maybe a medium-rare and I couldn’t even cut my steak. It was tough and full of grizzle. Because my aunt was so upset about all of the blood from her steak, I didn’t say anything and my wonderful husband switched steaks with me. They took her steak to recook it and left her potatoes on the bloody plate. When they returned with her steak about another 15 -20 minutes, they gave her back the steak and it was still not done. Upon request they gave her a fresh plate and new potatoes but since the steak was still not done, she only ate a few bites of potatoes. We were not even offered desert. The manager did comp her dinner but we all had a terrible experience and my husband ate a steak that was not close to the way you would expect from a nice restaurant (small and very tough). It shouldn’t have even been sold. Our reservation was at 6:00 and we finally left at about 8:00.More

Sadly, Johnnys has had its day in the sun. We used to love coming here for holidays and occasions with friends, but something has happened both in the front and the back of the house. The servers are not attentive and in some cases are...short with and rude to the customers. There are very few of the veteran staff remaining. The food coming out of the kitchen is mediocre at best. I had veal parmesan which was basically tasteless, and the pasta was cold. My friend's steak was overcooked. We ate what was put in front of us so as to not cause any more trouble than we had already experienced. When our server finally cleared, she asked if everything was ok, and we said no. A server we knew said how about another drink. We said OK but they turned up on the bill which we thought were to have been comps for a lousy meal. Somebody said the longtime manager doesn't care anymore. Well, someone needs to or the business will fail. High prices demand high quality, but quality has disappeared here.More

My trio of medallions was overcooked probably because of the crust they add to top. I assume you need to undercook it since it will be cooked more when adding the crusts. The garlic potatoes were like glue. way overcooked. Johnny's has definitely gone downhill....We use to love to come in and have the tiramisu, back when it was homemade. Definitely different these days. Tastes like from a box. Glad we were on a gift certificate, wouldn't come back to pay the prices for mediocre food. The calamari was excellent and our server was on point! My husband had the porterhouse with the gorgonzola crust which was mostly butter and bread crumbs very little gorgonzola, very overpowering way too thick.More

We took our family out to celebrate our son’s birthday. I called a week ahead and made reservations and made sure they understood it was a party of 12, no problem I was told. We arrived and we were seated back in a corner by...the kitchen and my son actually had to sit and block one of the entrances for the waitresses and waiters to come thru and we were very cramped. Then we heard the staff complaining that the entrance was blocked. Sorry not our problem that is where we were seated. The dinner was very good no complaints on that but when our waiter was picking up the dishes not once but twice he dropped a spoon on one of our guests that was used for spaghetti. I called and spoke to the manager and all he could say is well bring in the dry cleaning bill and we will pay for it. Very disappointed in the service especially when it was supposed to be a fun family celebration.More
