“Frozen stone crab”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

We went to Johnny's for fresh stone crab and were disappointed in that these claws were not fresh and had been frozen. If you're a stone crab lover, you can easily taste the difference. Manager was nice about it and said he'd tell his supplier, but that didn't make my dinner any better. On the plus side, salad and steak were pretty good and the ambience is very nice. Service was good, but I doubt we will be returning.

“Best food for the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

I had a old friend visit me from out of town and I suggested Johnnies Hideawy because I had a great experience when I visited in May. The service was awesome and the food was better than ever. Phil S. is a great server. We were treated like royalty. All thumbs up. They did everything to make or visit enjoyable. All of us enjoyef our apps and dinner.

“Great upscale dining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

I have been here twice and the food, service and environment were all excellent. Steaks are cooked to perfect specs and the staff go above and beyond to accommodate. A favorite dining spot when in Orlando!

“Not a good choice if you don't eat steak”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Their menu is very limited - lots of steak and seafood choices but very limited fish and chicken. Everything was offered with butter sauces or fried. Huge portions. Probably great if you don't care about cholesterol or calories. Even the house salad was served with some potato salad on the bottom. We ordered cedar plank salmon plain without the aioli -- after the hidden potato salad we verified with the waiter that the fish would be serve sauce free ... The waiter assured us that simple foods are the best and that our fish would be sauce free. Unfortunately they both came covered in butter - they brought two new ones 20 minutes later and comped us. We werent looking for free food but we appreciated this. But our sides were cold and greasy by the time our mains arrives. The steaks looked great but our choices fell short.

“Enjoyable evening with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed a nice evening at Johnnies on a very busy Wednesday night. There was an hour wait so we went to the outdoor bar th have a few drinks an an appetizer. Gas heaters took the chill off. The ribeye steak was wonderful! Would recommend Johnnies and call ahead if possible since it is a popular place.
