A great place for dinner or lunch. I've eaten here numerous times have never had a bad experience. I just love their wood roasted chickens and pork roast. Always good and top notch service.

First time there for 3 out
First time there for 3 out of 4 of us. Reminiscent of a Wisconsin dinner club. Seems dated but so what. A vast menu including plenty of comfort food. Roasted Chicken dish with sauteed peppers was delicious; liver and onions like "mom's". Nice salad with homemade dressings. Blue cheese was worth it. Wine list very basic but you go here for the food. Definitely worth a return.

Our four dinners were very good. I had the pork chops and they were very tender and and has a lot of flavor. Hubby had chopped steak and he loved it. The couple we treated had fried shimp and skirt steak and both enjoyed their meal.

Everything about this place is excellent except for the ribs! Little tough and meat does not fall off the bone like Gale Street! Service is top notch!

We love going to Johnny's with friends. There is never any rushing when your're there. You can sit and have a drink with friends and conversation. The staff and owner (Mary) are wnderful. We look forward to always going there.

I have come here a couple time for Lamp chops and as always they are excellent. My kids like to come here as they can find things that appeal to each of them. I will warn you that the tables are a bit close together, but the food makes it ok.

The lobster tail is very tasty & reasonably priced. A rare find nowadays.

Very good neighborhood restaurant
Very reasonable prices for good quantity of food. My wife had an excellent, inexpensive steak. I had Mediterranean Shrimp which I probably wouldn't get again -- too much feta cheese -- but with a huge number of shrimp.
Service was excellent.

Great local restaurant
Food is good with generous portions. Service is excellent. Honored our reservation with a booth request with zero waiting even though it was crowded.

Always reliable, good solid
Always reliable, good solid food. There may be few outstanding or creative items but the always tasty, very plentiful, consistent food and moderate prices have kept us coming back for almost 20 years. The wood roasted chicken is always wonderful, the fish fresh tasting and the veggies are never overlooked. Good for families and almost anyone else who wants a good meal and doesn't seek a gourmet or special romantic evening.

Good food at reasonable prices
I kept hearing radio commercials for Johnny's Kitchen and Tap and decided to give it a try. We usuallly go out with our neighbors on Friday night for dinner so I suggested this restauarant to the group. We had a party of 8 so went in a couple cars. One group got to the restaurant a little early so they were sittting at the bar waiting for the rest of us and had already gotten a beeper. We just had time to sit down and order a drink and get it before our buzzer went off. The only thing that I didn't like was that we were just outside of the kitchen so had wait people going back and forth constantly. The group ordered a variety of items and everything was very good.

I have 2 or 3 favorite dishes at Johnny's. This time I tried the Chicken Kabob and was totally pleased with my choice. It was tender and juicy and loaded with flavor. The 1000 Island dressing is always good, but was particularly outstanding on the night I was there.

Comfortable and friendly
Johnny's Kitchen and Tap is a comfortable, friendly place with quality food and good beverages. The live music on Friday night, when we went, was a nice touch. The beverages were very effective at the end of a long week. The quality of the food was in line with the price and the booth was comfortable. Although the restaurant was busy, it was not too noisy and we had no problem having a conversation. This is probably not a place for those expecting haute cuisine, but a good straightforward Chicago/Midwestern restaurant for an easygoing dinner. We will go back.
