“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

The best restaurant we have ever eaten at in Disney area. Will definitely eat at again. Ribeye was superb. Cooked exactly the way it was ordered. Shrimp scampi was delicious and the perfect portion. 5 year old son had some of the steak and fried Grouper. Through the whole meal we all could not have been more happy. Met the chef and he was awsome. Can't wait to go again.

“So good”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Did a quick search of highly rated restaurants in Kissimmee, but didn't look at actual location. We were staying near Disneyland and Chef Johns was 20 miles away. We decided to try it anyway in an attempt to avoid the "touristy" places. Very worth it. The restaurant is very small and very quiet. The ribs & brisket were great, Mac & cheese very good. Sausage sandwich with grilled onions was very moist and tasty. The scampi was just o.k. -shrimp were perfect but the pasta was swimming in grease/butter. My husband loved the grouper sandwich. We were stuffed but tried the key lime pie -yum! Would definitely return

“I drove 20 miles each way and worth it - best meal we have had since coming here.”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and were ready for a special meal at a smaller venue.

We found found Chef John's place on trip advisor and it recieved great ratings.

Chalk one up for trip advisor and more important Chef John and his staff.

Great food, great service and Chef John and his wife stopped by to congratulate us.

Wounderful people, and wonderful food.

I would recommend reservations as this best kept secret is no secret to the locals and it was a full house even on a Tuesday night.

It has been the highlight of our an anniversary - thanks to everyone at Chef John's.

Regards,

Chris & Bev - Indianapolis Indiana

“Different Location, Same Quality”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Visited 3rd Oct 2013, luckily didn't set off for the old premises we had a meal in over a year ago.
The new location for us this year in a typical Florida shopping area doesn't look too appealing, (For the UK people) but don't let that put you off.
My wife had to get the crab cakes again after raving about them constantly. (Sorry we were lazy and didn't review this place previously)
I'll not bore you with the exact details of the food, as five of us had a variety of choices and all of them made positive comments, bbq, chicken, gumbo, fish....All great.
The server was cheerful (sorry I forgot her name), quite attentive and regularly checked we were OK. Drinks were replenished and service spot on. ( I can never understand bad places not checking for drinks etc. A lot of profit can be made with drinks, wines, beers and if the server neglects you this profit is lost, never mind the poor review)
The food appeared very fresh and served up as quick as you could reasonably expect. One slight observation and I saw this not negatively, was one of our party was slow finishing her appetizer of wings. (large portion slow eater!). Her entrée/ main was served up as she was still eating. However we had all finished and were ready. Should the entrees be allowed to stand and cool while waiting? I don't think so. Like me you may view this as a positive, the quick service.
Chef John visited our table to check everything was OK (he did this on our last visit so not an isolated thing) This shows first, he cares about his customers, and second, he cares about his food.
Oh and the singer was outside too and this added to the atmosphere.
We shall return!
