We decided to bring my inlaws to Johnny's for a casual anniversary celebration - with our 8 month old! While we'd dined here before, I couldn't remember how it would be to have a little one with us for brunch. It was wonderful - we saw so many kids around - the scene was just lively enough and the staff was very accommodating to our little boy. Oh, and the food was spectacular! We will definitely be back for a Sunday brunch!

We sat in the room with the bar. That was the first time. All the other times we have been in one of the other two rooms which were much quieter and had a much nicer ambiance.

I loved the vibe in this restaurant! We were checking out Loyola University and stopped in for lunch. Johnnys is deceptively large but feels intimate inside. We ordered from the Brunch menu. I had a Woodford bourbon cocktail with fig syrup and loved it so much I ordered another. The crab bisque was wonderful as was my Greek salad. My son ordered the pancakes stack and my husband ordered eggs Benedict. Both said their meals were delicious. We polished this off with molasses ginger cookies and cafe lattes and left with full/happy tummies. You cannot go wrong with this restaurant.

I was sorry that we weren’t informed of the specials. I would have loved to try the meatballs.

Service was nice. If you want light and are coming for lunch or brunch, the ground floor bar area is much nicer. One of the dishes, grilled calamari needs to be reviewed. They are dripping in oil and bacon fat plus a trace of some greens. After eating the calamari, the plate was left with a quarter inch deep of bacon fat and oil. Also, there was more bacon than calamari. Not a healthy dish at all. Remove the bacon, this is not what people want if they order grilled calamari, add red pepper and green, should not be swimming in fat.
The omelet was good.

We had to ask several times for tea, then for the cream that was forgotten, then for the homemade chips that were forgotten. My crab bisque was lukewarm. The BLT had very little bacon, pale tomatoes and served on a roll rather than toasted bread.

Have had mich better service and food in the past. Hopefully, this was just a bad day

We went there with my son who was afraid of the deer heads in the back. The woman that moved us to a different location was very kind. However we did have some issues. Although my food was decent, my friend's salmon was not. It had no flavor and was not cooked properly. Also, the waiting staff should be trained to not place food dishes in front of young children. We got the hummus appetizer and the person that brought it out placed it on the table in front of my one year old. It's just common sense to not put food dishes in front of a child that young. He could have been burnt or thrown the dishes. Also it was very very hot in the restaurant causing there to be awkward smells in certain areas we walked through.

We went on a Tuesday to try their burgers during their 1/2 price special and were happily surprised. Both the regular burger and the black bean were on the special and both were delicious. Had a choice of three sides to choose from and we picked the greens (a good side salad with shaved Parmesan) and fries (which were enough for two). Service was great!

We always enjoy the creative dishes at Johnny's. Dining partner very pleased with his crab bisque followed by the rockfish tacos. I liked my 6 tender scallops on deliciously lightly dressed salad. We LOVED the decadent s'mores mousse cake we shared. Attentive service and mgmt stopped by to check on us.

Johnny's was great - we were greeted and seated by our Hostess. The ambiance is spectacular the drinks (we had Diamondback beer and one handcrafted cocktail) were quick to arrive and delicious. Our meal was great - everything was presented well and fresh.

We will become regulars at Johnnys! Have been there for brunch a lot and held two family parties there, and have done a lot of lunches there - it's also great for Friday, Saturday, Sunday night dinners.

We live in the neighborhood and eat here frequently. So disappointed to see this neighborhood gem not maintain its high standards. Our greeting was cool with “your early and will have about a 20 minute wait.” We had to ask if we could go sit at the bar. Once seated our waiter had difficulty remembering our orders, asked for clarifications, left, and returned twice with questions Long wait for salads and soup and even longer wait for entrees. Two of the three arrived with tough chicken in a BLT, cold fries in another order had to be returned. No apologies- more like it was our problem.
Hoping this was just one night off.

Burger night was a disappointment. I order the burger medium and it came back Med rare, just too rare for me. Was offered to reheat same burger. It came back terrible. In the future recook the burger to correct temperature and present it well. I should have been more assertive. It was awful.
