“More than I expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Two friends and I stopped in here for lunch after a parasailing trip. I wasn't expecting much for the kind of establishment that it is. I ordered pizza and it was very good. The other girls ordered chicken parm and philly cheesesteak and also said theirs was very good. The prices were reasonable. The inside could use some updating, however, the bathrooms were very clean (if I use the bathroom and is not clean to me I never go back to a place again) and the waitress was very helpful and friendly. I also ordered a lobster tail, which the waitress said is from a local bakery. It was excellent. I am very glad that we stopped here

“Bright and cheery interior and the same abundant portions!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

John's Italian has a nice new coat of paint and some new finishing touches to the decor which make it very nice and cheery. The food is the same great quality you are used to, and the prices are the same reasonable price for an abundant portion of food. The waitstaff is friendly. We went for an early bird breakfast, best kept weekday early riser secret around the lake! Just in time for the season of tourists the remodel brings a great look to the already wonderful food and service.

“I'll go again and again ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

I am from out of town and every time I come here I am excited. Everyhing we have ever ordered we have loved. From Italian dishes, to roast chicken, to omelettes at breakfast, to French toast, to sides of broccoli ... Everything is scrumptious and the value for the portions cannot be beat. I have even been known to eat here one day after another ... Mmm Mmm Mmm. If you don't stop - you're missing out!!
