First time in Amherst and were walking around town and found Johnny's Tavern. Looked busy, checked out menu and decided to give it a try. The dining room was pleasant and so was the service. Slightly disappointed with the meal. I ordered the special steak with mashed potatoes. Just average. My husband ordered the chicken and french fries. Chicken was tasteless and fries were fried in "old oil". Next visit to Amherst, we will just have to try another place.
