St. John has moved to a remodeled former pecan factory just around the corner from its original location. The food is the best in the area. The crab cake is unmatched. The steaks are top notch. We never miss the chance to take visitors to this gem in St. Martinville. Stop by and tell Chip hello. This is money well... More

As with all of the other reviews each time we head to St. Martinsville we eat at St. John's. Our meals are always delicious and well prepared. Service is excellent and the atmosphere has not suffered with their moving to a larger facility. Everthing is home made right there in the restaurant...and I ALWAYS have the blue cheese dressing which... More

We came on a saturday, and the atmosphere was very happy. We waited at the bar for availability which took 20 mins as promissed, and enjoyed the drinks there. Dinner was excellent, both meat and sea food, and the attention from the owner was very welcoming

My husband and I love this place. Now that they are all settled in their new building around the corner from the old location, they offer a full bar. Enjoy having a Cosmo before dinner. For dinner we have created our own surf & turf. I order the two crab cake dinner, and my husband orders the 9 oz filet.... More

Was told by friend about this place. Easy to find with GPS. Food was delicious, hot and freshly cooked. Service was real good too. The restaurant has a covered entrance so you can get dropped off and not get wet. Has a casual atmosphere. I love, love this place. Wish it was in my home town.

Our gathering went beyond hours of operation. The service continued. I recommend this restaurant 100% Thanks!!!

We tried St. John Restaurant based on review on Tripadvisor. We arrived just after opening and were warmly greated and seated promptly. Our server had the southern manners we appreciate when we visit the south. As much as we love to try local dishes, my husband and I, both, wanted to stay away from anything fried. I ordered a grilled... More
