After dining at this steakhouse as our Friday-night-out tradition, I actually walked out of the building feeling ashamed--that we don't go here enough. The atmosphere was older but very charming, with modern IU sports pictures on historic walls, and everything was spacious. I saw one previous review which mentioned accessibility, and I will have to concur...the entrance has steps and... More

In town for the Huskers vs Hoosiers. This spot came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Make sure to get the Spicy Bucharest meatballs. I repeat, get the spicy Bucharest meatballs for an appetizer. The steaks are great and our waitress was awesome.

This restaurant was recommended to us and glad we went. I had the filet 7 oz and my hubby had the ribeye. Both amazing and cooked to perfection. Very pricey but again well worth it. Staff not so friendly and we felt we were being rushed. I didn't even finish my salad and one of the waitresses wanted to take... More

Both times I have been to Janko's the food was excellent. Best steak in B-town. I would like to mention it is not very handicapped acceptable. They had to open another entrance for my dad to get into the restaurant. We did have very good service both times we were there.

We were referred to Janko's by the front desk clerk at our hotel. Wandering down the walking trail, we found it off of an alleyway. From the outside it was very unassuming, and the interior decor was more like a sports bar than a restaurant. But the food and service was terrific. I had one of the best steaks I've... More

Was in Bloomfield visiting our son who is a freshman at IU. Restaurant was recommended by a friend and my nephew (an IU alum). Loud atmosphere, good food, attentive staff for a very busy night. Would recommend steak over chicken or fish. Also have great meatballs (if you like spicy).

The steaks at Zagreb's are amazing. My husband always chooses this place for his birthday feast. The steaks are thick and flavorful. The atmosphere is casual. Simple salad, grilled rolls and a baked potato round out the meal. If you are a fan of spicy food, try the meatballs as an appetizer - or make it your meal. I've heard... More

Huge college crowd, but can accommodate many people. Food is good and the wines are as well. Would go back!

Huge portions and prices to match. All the locals highly recommend Janko’s, so the three of went on of our second night in town. Having already eaten too much great food in Bloomington, I looked for something smaller and chose the Hungarian Meatballs and baked a potato. The portion was still too big, but good and spicy. The other 2... More

I met an old college friend whom I had not seen in 20 years or more. He had a Groupon so he suggested Jankos. On a weekend night, reservations are an absolute must. The place was packed and the wait was long. But the steak was worth the wait. The decor is not fancy, but the food was superb. There... More
