More than just pub food....more of a family style dining. The service was great and always with a smile!

“Friday Fish is the Best!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I have enjoyed John's Buffet for many years and really like the Friday night "fish fry" dinner-very family oriented and the service is generally very good

“If you're ever craving for a reuben sandwich..come here!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Nice old-time, neighborhood bar and restaurant. The classic burger's are great, but it's mainly the reuben that has been bringing us back here for about 15 years. Lean corned beef, swiss, sauerkraut with bits of shredded carrot, and dressing all on dark-rye grilled to perfection.. with a side of onion rings or fries. Cravings for them use to have us order ahead and carry-out in the old bar area, but that's not necessary any more. We'd rather dine in and enjoy the service, atmosphere and enjoy every bite!

“Prices are reasonable and food is very good.”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

They do not have a menu with a huge number of selections, but it doesn't matter. What they serve is excellent. I especially like the butt steak, very tender and very tasty. My wife realy likes their pork chops.
