    Tried this place on a whim after finding it on Open Table. Should've stuck to Fleming's or other known steakhouses. Place was really outdated and less than desirable being on the side off highway overlooking Red Lobster. The waitress was lovely, but forgot one of our appetizers. Three of us ordered the petit filet. One tasted like bacon, strange, and the other two were turned. You could even smell the old meat scent. They quickly took the meat away to replace it and I don't think they actually brought filet back. I'm a big meat eater...steak and potatoes kind of girl. I could not stomach this beef. The mashed potatoes were delicious though. Wasn't happy they didn't offer a free drink, dessert or take anything off the bill. Stay away!!!

    First time to eat there. Not up to standards that dinner prices would indicate. Steak was good but not great. Wine list was adequate but not great. Service was adequate, but for fine dining there was no additional table service other than waiter (ie., no bread and water servers). Not a bad meal overall, just not what I expect from a fine steak and seafood establishment.

    we received incredibly poor service at johnnies hideaway, it was our first time dining here and we will not be returning. service was very poor and our waitress disappeared for the majority of our meal. the wine was very expensive and overpriced, it took members of our party around 15 mins to choose a bottle of wine based on the excessive price. main meals were bland and overpriced. there was 7 members dining in our party who were all extremely disappointed with all our meals. we are very willing to pay good money for good food - this was not good food. one member received a cold meal, the duty manager did attempt to rectify this problem by bringing a new meal, however when this meal arrived the fish was totally raw.

    Restaurant came highly recommended by our concierge for seafood; however, we found the crab legs and fish lacking in flavor. The oysters and steak were a good choice. Wine list OK, although not much selection of wines by the glass. Ambiance and decor were nice and raised our expectations for an outstanding meal. The service was also excellent. Unfortunately the food did not live up to its price tag. We went as a large party with three families. I think this restaurant may be better for business meetings.

    The wine selection by the glass is average but great by the bottle. The restaurant is beautiful. We ordered non-seafood, non-beef items for entrees which were VERY disappointing (chicken and veal). i would only order seafood next time (if we go back). The beef, from previous experience, is wonderful aged beef, but it is broiled and not grilled over a hard-wood fire as it is done in other, sister restaurants. For their beef, go to Charlie's or Texas Cattle Company. The waiter was annoyingly persistent in trying to upsell us.

    An off night for the service. I chose Johnnie's because of the wonderful food and experience we had last year with my family and decided to go again. On a positive note, they did an excellent job with a Gluten Free requirement one of my guest had - both with plenty of menu options and some custom items they made for her. Service was slow and we always seemed to be asking for stuff we shouldn't (water/drinks within the first 5-10 minutes of being seated, plates to eat the apps and desert items ordered, sugar with the coffee service, etc) Maybe they were short staff to help the servers because it looked like they were over-extended and struggling that evening. I may give them another shot in the event it was an off-night but disappointed.

    The food is excellent and the selection is terrific. My wife had the Madagascar Shrimp...they were terrific. I had the veal chop it was OK however we have been here many times an usually everything is exceptional. The server was very friendly and did a great job however there were times that he was not attentive to the table and we had to wait some time to order desert and then had to wait for the check and then had another long wait to get our check back to sign. Overall it is an outstanding restaurant. Since the service is normally always exceptional, he was either new or was extremely busy but we did have a great personality.

    The food is excellent, some creative and some straightforward basic but well-executed, the service is consistent and professional without being stuffy, and it's a fun and relaxing/laid back setting. Everyone from the valet to the wait staff are on top of their game, friendly and genuinely interested in your having a nice meal. We enjoyed it immensely.

    We were on a family vacation in Orlando, doing the Disney World scene. It was my birthday and had visited Johnnie's previously on a business trip. I wanted to go there for my birthday and treated the family since it's expensive compared to other franchise restaurants in the area. We were 4 adults and 4 teenage kids. After a week at theme parks, I was dying for a real food menu that didn't include fish tacos, an assortment of hamburgers, and monster salads. Call me crazy. Of course, don't expect to have dinner less than $50/person (with no alcohol), but if you love seafood and steaks, you'll enjoy Johnnie's. The teenage kids couldn't believe the food. I could eat a dinner just on the sides. My favorite: Fried green tomatoes. Enjoy!

    We made a reservation and requested outdoor seating. When we arrived the hostess sent us outside and told us to sit anywhere. There were no tables available. Meant back inside and told her we would sit inside. Then we had to wait for them to clean a table which took about 15 minutes. I went to a different hostess to ask where the restrooms were and she was very unpleasant. I order filet mignon and when my meal arrived they had given me the end cut of the filet. Our server was very good and nice so he told his Manager and they did replace it with a better cut. However, it was not very tasty and came with a pile of mash potatoes. When paying $35+for an entree I expected better quality food.

    Service & food were both excellent as usual. Attentive but not obtrusive wait staff. I came for the Monday night all you can eat stone crab claws but will return in the off season as well. My husband is not as much a seafood lover as I though he did thoroughly enjoy his shrimp. The pineapple coconut cake on the dessert cart did call out to him. Attractive décor - love those Highwaymen paintings!

    Great Mother's Day dinner at Johnnie's Hideaway. The special free filet for moms was a beautiful 8 oz. cut that was still too big to finish. The only side that came with it was the salad, but we had ordered appetizers anyway, so it wasn't a problem. The service was exceptional and the food, as always, was outstanding.

    The place is nice. Fairly priced for the type of food you receive. It's on the same level of Charlie's, Fishbones, etc. Surf and Turf are the regular fair. Service there was excellent and attentive. The building and decor are a little below the standard I would expect for the average price ticket per customer. All in all I think it is worth the money, but there are some things that could be done to make the place a real show stopper.
