“Johnny's Closed!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

I drove by today and saw that the signs are gone -- even off the sides of the building -- and the doors are boarded up! Does anyone know what happened?

“What's with the picture?”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

It is true that a driver put their car right through the entrance area but the owners had it patched up in no time. The food is way over priced and there have been some instances of accused false advertizing. I also question cleanliness.

“LOVE their filet-as always”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Their saginaki with shrimp is SO delicious and a perfect appetizer for two people. Love their unique bread, salad, and their mashed potatoes. Their tuxedo cake is yummy too. Never a bad experience, wait staff friendly too.

“Good food, a bit pricey”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

The food was very good and well prepared. Portions were large. My teenage daughters each ordered a fettucine alfredo and there was so much food neither good finish. They probably could have shared one entree. Soft drinks were very expensive, so watch out if you order them. Quick service, even on a Friday evening.

“Excellent Meal and Service”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

The food is very good, as is the service. Steaks are excellent, as is the seafood, but we come here primarily for the steaks. We always enjoy a nice steak dinner and glass of wine here. Our server was excellent and was very helpful. Highly recommended!
