Six of us went to Johnny's for lunch. We were a diverse group. The menu has a broad selection. We had salads, burgers, and flat bread pizzas, all of which we quite good. Service was excellent.

We discovered Johnny's earlier this summer and really enjoyed the food, drink and atmosphere. We returned today and again had a great time! I had the Cilantro Lime Margarita (GET IT!), chicken pesto flatbread (WOW!) and the beet salad (TO DIE FOR!).

Oh and yes, the prices are very reasonable. Just go.

Johnny's is one of those rare restauarants - a nice adult place in a college town. The food is very good, the service is above par and a civilized conversation can be carried on. All in all, a great way to spend a civilized evening.

Having enjoyed a lovely brunch here with friends a few weeks ago (accompanied by a Bacon Bloody Mary that would have made a trip to this restaurant worthwhile all on its own!), I decided to go back for dinner with a group of eight colleagues. We were not disappointed! Service was friendly and efficient and there was no objection to separate checks for all (I suppose they're used to this in a college town). The atmosphere was lively and fun. My "Grilled 10 oz. Teres Major Steak" was cooked medium rare, just as requested, and was tender and flavorful. The accompanying Gorgonzola creamed spinach was amazing, and the herb fries crisp and delicious. This was washed down with a Chimay beer from the interesting wine and beer list. My colleagues all enjoyed their meals too, and the overwhelming consensus was that this will become one of our regular meeting places. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant for any meal, whether it be lunch or dinner, or a weekend brunch.

Instead of going to our usual place for breakfast, we decided to try Brunch here instead, as we have always enjoyed dinner here. Well we enjoyed it immensely and for sure we will be back again to sample other delicious homemade delights!!!
