“Saved the evening by going here!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

I haven't been to Janko's in a while and thankfully ended up here for my sister's birthday.
The shrimp cocktails are wonderful, 5 very large shrimp with some pretty spicy cocktail sauce. My nephews orders the meatball appetizer, which they loved. I tried one and thought that it was very spicy, but it had a very good flavor. Everyone's steak was cooked to perfection. My filet was the best steak that I had had in Bloomington in a very long time. While they are expensive, you have to realize that you get what you pay for and after having some pretty bad experiences at other steakhouses in Bloomington, it was nice to see that after all of these years Janko's is still the place to go for the best steak in town.

“Only for football players!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The food is simply awful.
The steaks served are of worse quality (?) then that of the local supermarket.
The wine sweet and cheap.
A place for people who absolutely nothing about good food.

“Absolutely inedible”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Stopped in on a Monday night. Thought we could get some Croatian or Greek food. Neither. Became obvious that this place prides itself on being a steak house.

I ordered a stuffed bell pepper and my wife had the duck. Both tasted like they came out of the kitchen of a cheap chain. The duck was raw in the middle and sent back. it came back a few minutes later and had not been grilled further. Told the waitress and she asked "have you had duck before?" Well, we have, hundreds of times. It was a travesty.

This place prides itself on tons of food heaped on plates. That would be nice if the food was tasty or even healthy. It is neither. Prices are high.

Our waitress came back later and apologized for the food and gave us a piece of free cheesecake. I am diabetic, it went untouched.

Bloomington is full of great eating places. This is NOT one of them.

“Great food- bar atmosphere”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

These people were so nice to take a last minute reservation.
Place was packed. We waited less than 5 minutes for our table.
The food is wonderful. The meatballs are wonderful with a little kick. Beer selection is above average. Salads were also very good. Menu appears pricey but the four of us ate for leass than
100 dollars by sharing. THe portions are large. Enjoy!!
