I ate here because I was staying at the adjacent Doubletree and didn't want to get back in the car to look for a restaurant off site. It didn't get off to a great start when my red wine was served in a dirty glass. But I ended up having one of the best food dishes I have ever eaten,... More

I was staying at the DoubleTree and ate here twice--a goat cheese salad for lunch and the breakfast buffet. The goal cheese salad was quite good with crisp, fresh ingredients, and a was nicely dressed. The breakfast buffet is very reasonably priced and has the usual buffet items such as oatmeal, french toast, scrambled eggs, yogurt, cereals, bagels, and fresh... More

Lots of great entree's here. The Sausage Bread is amazing as our many other of their specialties. Great ambiance. Price isn't the lowest but you are paying for great quality food.

We ate at Johnny's because we were staying at the Doubletree before our flight the next morning. We arrived late and were treated wonderfully. The food and service were both excellent and we will definitely eat there again.

I went here with my boyfriend for Valentine's Day. We had reservations and they brought us straight to our table. The servers were kind and quick. The food was all great and filling. The desert was also amazing! It is expensive, but it's a great place for a nice date!

The pre-meal bread for dipping was yummy. The portion sizes are impressive. I ordered an appetizer and a bowl of soup—and couldn't finish.

I did not expect a restaurant of this quality in a hotel by the Des Moines airport. It is well appointed, has a friendly professional staff, and an excellent menu. I was in Des Moines for business and after the first good experience there I decided I'd eat there the following two nights. I had two different chicken dishes, and... More

I enjoyed a 6 oz filet and Parmesan mashed potatoes at Johnny's. The staff warned us before to order our steak medium rare if we usually like it medium. The steak came out a little red in the center but not at all bloody. It was quite tasty, and I was happy. (Tip: Tell the staff how you like it,... More
