2 of our had Filet Oscar. The filet part was perfect, couldn’t have been better. How’re the grilled Shrimp that accompany the filet were slightly charred. Disappointed for the price we pay.

One in our party asked for medium well ribeye and it was easily past well done.

This was our first time going, but won't be our last! Everything was amazing! The food and service were exceptional. My husband and I agree probably the best steak we have ever had. The sides are huge so no need to get more than one. The bartender knows how to make a good drink too. If you have not been, go! It's worth the money for the experience. You will not be disappointed.

2 Johns is one of our favorite places to eat (HANDS DOWN). As a matter of fact we have been loyal customers since the first week it opened. The thing that separates them from the others is the consistency of awesome food, service, and ambience for the price. However, on our most recent visit, things were different. We waited an hour and ten minutes to receive our food. When it finally came out, it was lukewarm and overdone (Pork Chops). I try to keep all things positive, at the end of the day. So, maybe this took place, due to the large party that was in the corner, along with the regular crowd. At any rate, this will not stop us from saying there. 2 Johns will always be part of our top choices to dine. However, I would advise not to dine, if it is a holiday or huge party involved.

Our table was just outside the kitchen. A lot of noise from the bar and traffic was constant. Now that I've been there, I will know to ask for different seating. The food and service were excellent.

My husband and I was told about 2 Johns from a family member and decided to go for dinner. Several specials were offered and i decided on the filet mignon topped with lump crabmeat and Bearnaise sauce. My husband had the tuna steak over wasabi mashed potatoes. Both dishes were excellent. I will definitely recommend this restaurant and can't wait to go back.

The food was great, but the waitress wasn't very good & the manager went everyone's table except for ours. My wife & I are African American & the restaurant was full of white people & the manager went to everyone's table except ours. The waitress neglected us & then she recommended the cheapest bottle of wine not knowing what we could afford. So will we be going back? No. Will we recommend this restaurant to anyone of our friends? White or black? No. It was a great birthday gift, but never again.

We stumbled on this gem when we moved from South Carolina to Texas in 2014. Making that 100-mile drive again, we purposely chose to stay in Bossier so we could go back. No better way to end a day of driving 700 miles than the great cocktails and amazing food!

The food was as always wonderful. We had a friend in from Houston and wanted to show her how wonderful this restaurant was. She was impressed with the food and atmosphere but the food was abnormally slow on a Tuesday night for some reason. (Also don't really like that there is not any kind of discount of drinks before 6 pm just because you sit in dining room which is just a few feet from the bar)
