We had a very nice evening here. The food and service was great. I had veal for dinner and it reminded me of Mom's. I have nothing bad to say about it. Very diverse menu with great options. I would go back. Didn't pay, so hard to give it a perfect rating.

A group of us gals love to go out once a month for lunch. We chose Johnny's for our Christmas luncheon. Our experience was certainly worth the trip! It was beautifully decorated. The staff was very friendly and the food was exceptional!

Had breakfast this morning at the Holiday Inn Steakhouse. Mind-blowing experience. They had prime rib and a bunch of other good stuff! Our server Casey took such good care of us. He even asked if we wanted some to-go drinks for the road. We asked for directions to a downtown hotel and he printed map quest directions for us! Hats... More

So, because of my activity all day long preparing to move, I was too exhausted to go to the restaurant, so they brought the steak to me! It was great! I love this place, you should check them out even if you don't stay at the hotel.

We were on the return leg of a cross-country trip and thought it would be difficult to replicate the steakhouse experience we had in Omaha on the way out. In fact, we chose to stay in this area because there was a steakhouse of the same ownership, but when we arrived late and found that we would have to drive... More

There are quite many choices for the food. The steak is nice, but there are too salty. Those who needs healthier choice should request less salt!

So sorry your experience was less than stellar. We do not add an a lot of salt to anything but do season certain steaks. Please ask your server to leave the seasoning off of your steak and we are happy to prepare it that way. More

Absolutely a great steak and service. Why leave the hotel when there's a great restaurant on site! Domonique was very pleasant and menu knowledgeable. Great experience.

This was a very good steakhouse... quality meat and flavor. Food was prepared to my liking and temperature. I had the porterhouse with Caesar salad and rice. Rice was a little dry and the salad was fine. The service was ok. The waiter seemed new or confused. My drink order was made wrong but they fixed it quickly... however not... More

Traveling thru Des Moines, stayed at Holiday Inn, Johnny's was in the hotel. Rather than drive somewhere, we chose to try the restaurant. Good decision. Ordered the steak special, it was so melt in your mouth good! Service was very good starting out but as they became busier, it took longer for server to check back with us. Not a... More

Went on a Tuesday around 830. Not very busy. I ordered a crabcake for an appetizer. It was very dry and had lots of breading. Not premium quality by any means. Ordered the Jumbo Shrimp for an entree.
