“potential not realized”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

pre-holidays, we went in the restaurant for appetizers & wine - it could have been dinner, but the service was quite slow, even though the restaurant was only about 1/3 full. This place has a lot of potential, and should try and raise the bar.

“Happy Hour - Happy Camper”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Johnnie's has a fabulous Sunday Champagne Brunch, fun happy hour with great small plates, and a pleasant dinner dining experience - lunch is problematic because the dining room is not always open and there is limited table space in the bar.

“Little restuarnat in a litle city that thinks it is bigger than it is.”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Food and drink, Ok, but for what it is I think there is too much local hype and I am totally unimpressed with the service. They mean to have good service but , like all small towns, too involved with locals to have consistently good servers.

“Great Place !”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Went for appetizers and drinks, very busy place with one waitress( Sam ), but we were not ignored or left needing anything, she did a great job of working the whole room.The food was typical bar food (we had calamari and cheese plate) and the atmosphere was relaxed. We liked it so much we went back 2 days later on our way home. Definitely a recommended place if you are in the Chico area.
