About Johnnys Kitchen and Tap
When you walk through the front door of Johnny’s Kitchen and Tap, you inhale the delicious aroma of chicken cooking in a wood-roasting rotisserie oven. Cozy, casual, and nicely outfitted, Johnny’s in business since 1995, has a large bar that separates two dining rooms and offers something for everyone. We have a party room that accommodates up to 70 people.
Johnny’s is well known for their wood-roasted chicken, rotisserie-roasted pork, baby back ribs and real mashed potatoes. The menu also features steak and chops, fresh fish, pastas, salads and sandwiches. Specials are offered daily and include such favorites as charbroiled fresh fish, Chicken al Forno and Shrimp Fontinella. Johnny’s spacious bar offers a full wine list, a wide selection of beers on tap and an extensive martini list. Don’t forget to save room for dessert-the fresh baked Apple Pie with French vanilla ice cream and caramel is a favorite!

Johnnys Kitchen and Tap Ratings and Reviews
Our reservation was for 7:30 but were not seated until 7:50. The service was great our waiter was very friendly and attentive the food was good but not great and a bit expensive for what we got. I would go back it had a nice casual vibe I would focus on more of the burgers and sandwiches though.
We were in the area for an engagement party, just needed to find a place for a "quick bite" before the event - what a LUCKY find....sat at a hi-top at the bar area - live music, amazing service and food. Looked like a "local bar in a strip mall" but boy were we surprised....the place was packed, so well known by the locals.....I would go back...
Johnny’s is one of our “go-to” places. Nothing fancy, but we enjoy it. Food is simple, well prepared, and good quality. Comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff and good service. Portions are satisfying and prices are reasonable. Overall a really good value. Can’t go wrong.
We went there for the liver and onions. It was good but not as good as I had remembered it in the past. The baked onion soup was delicious. The side salad was lots of lettuce, 1 slice of cucumber and 2 grape tomatoes. They were very busy and our waitress, who tried her best to do a good job, was hampered by the short staff. She said there were a lot of new staff members who needed assistance which delayed her. In the past, I have had their 1/2 chicken dinner or their bar-b-qued ribs which were always very good. Those 2 items were also very good when ordered for take-out.
It's still one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants to go for a good casual and as well as complete meal.
My experiences at Johnny's Tap was good as usual and Mary always makes us feel like special guests when she comes to the table to greet us. The appetizers were delicious accompanied by our cocktails and crusty bread. Some of our meals were selected from the special menu of the day: the lamb chops were very small; steak and lobster delicious. The BBQ ribs were a little too "stick to the bone". The accompanying veggies were more than al dente, but the mashed potatoes made up for them. Complimentary dessert bread pudding was YUMMY! Yes, we're going back soon.
Johnny's is a great local place with really good food in a very casual atmosphere. We like to meet friends there because of the excellent service and the friendly waiters. The specialty of the house is the chicken and it makes for an tasty meal, Recommend Johnny's for all these reasons and more.
Chicken is part of the backbone of their menu and it wasn’t too good and the price keeps going up. Chicken and ribs were over cooked. As was the vegetables, as well. One of our party had chicken brichette and said it was very good. But the other 2 had salmon and London broil. Neither was above average.
Despite seeming busy, we were seated right away. Very nice location. Prompt service, very polite and knowlegable staff. Drinks never went empty, great service and food was out with almost no wait. Nothing was missing, everything extremely flavorful and cooked to order. Overall a great experience. Would highly recommend.
Overall, our group found it was quite pricey for lunch. We can get better values at Outback or Black Finn, Olive Garden.
No one seemed to think it was great. The service that day was very slow. As seniors who meet once a month, we like to try new places, and we were not especially impressed.
This was an evening out for a birthday celebration. It started out great with a nice booth. The server was poor at best. Our waiter Diego was rude and condescending. I ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio ( something I have been drinking for years) What arrived was clearly a Chardonnay- easy mistake- but it took him 20 minutes to return to the table to rectify the situation I had to ask another server to handle this for me which she did easily and with a smile- too bad we didn't get her as our server.When he realized what happened he said it was my fault and he clearly saw the bartender pour pinot grigio-I know what I tasted! what ever happened to the customer is always right. Fast forward to the meal, my husband ordered lentil soup and what he received was minestrone- again Diego took his spoon and began stirring it and telling him it was lentil- not a lentil to be found among the vegetables and potatoes that make up a minestrone soup! The ribs and Chicken combo that my husband ordered were good-thank goodness!
Unfortunately, when you are out for a special evening that is not inexpensive ,sometimes bad service can ruin your experience. I'm not saying don't go there- just do yourself a favor and get another table if you get Diego as your waiter!
