We were out for a pleasant Sunday afternoon and stopped at Johnnie's for a very nice meal. Waitresses were very pleasant, food was very good, and service was prompt. Prices are very reasonable and it is a great place to stop anytime.

On a quiet Sunday (3:30) we were the only ones in the place but were treated great by our server. Prime rib and seafood platter both delicious. Definitely will be back.

The food and service was great. Bullhead dinner and I had a veal dish. Veal took longer to prepare that I thought it would, but it was worth the wait. However, the restaurant itself was very cold.
