Have been going to Swan River MB on business travel for a few months. Why Not Johnnys is by far the best place for dinner. The pasta in great, the steak is good, the service is friendly, and have had great service ranging to ok service.

When is Swan River, I would suggest Johnnys !!

This is a nice place with a pleasant ambiance. The waitress was friendly and knowledgable. The New York steak was not as tender as I would have liked, but it tasted very good. The food in general was average. I definitely would eat here again, since it seems to be the best eatery in town.

I had the poutine burger. Food was delicious, the gravy wasn't too salty as poutine gravy can be. Service was great and the ambiance is inviting! Loved it!

Went with a large group. Our server seemed a bit overwhelmed, The menu selection was good. When the food came some food was really good and others were underwhelmed with their meals. Dry ribs have bones and not a lot of meat. I wouldn't recommend them.

We have eaten here twice. Once when they first open, and a second time to give them a chance that they were working out the kinks. Neither time was it very good. We had a type of nachos and the cheese was burnt on top, completely black. Our other food was under cooked. So, we tried ordering pizza from here a couple times. Once, the cheese was burnt again, rock hard on top. Next time, the dough was not cooked throughout. Each time we tried to pick up the pizza, staff were either more concerned with seating in coming people than helping us pick up our order, or the pizza was not ready. Another time, the pizza had been done for 20 mins already when we showed up but nobody called us. We won't be going back, or ordering from again and we've heard similar stories from others.
