Everything was as we expected from previous visits- service and food…except for the 2 ribeye steaks. The filet and porterhouse at our table of 5 were beautiful cuts of meat cooked perfectly to the requested temperature. The 2 ribeyes, however, were not up to standard. The cuts were thin and both cooked medium well when both were requested medium rare. The wait staff promptly served up replacements that were cooked correctly…but the cuts were not of the quality they should be- almost looked butterflied for someone who wants steak (over-) cooked to beyond medium. I would not pick out those ribeye cuts in a grocery and do not expect them to be served to me in a top shelf steakhouse. Lesson learned: don’t ever order the ribeye here again.

We felt rushed to order and the food came out very fast. Not necessarily a bad thing, but felt odd for this type of dinner and restaurant. There was also a very loud obnoxious table seated in the middle of the dining room, again, not the restaurant's fault, but it definitely put a damper on our visit.
Food was excellent.

First time visiting. Food was mediocre. Service was ok staff. Reservation was about 1.5 hours before closing. Staff seemed to be extremely ready to leave for the night. Service was quite rushed. Had high expectations based other reviews would advise to consider other steakhouses.

Excellent dining experience for my husband’s birthday treat. Steaks are the main attraction, but all of the food we had was wonderful.

For starters, turtle soup was the best my husband ever had. He loved it! Tomato-tarragon with shrimp was the featured soup of the day. It was delicious and full of flavor. The shrimps were plump and fresh.

Entree was “porterhouse for two,” medium-rare. Cooked perfectly and seasoned perfectly. Delicious! It was served hot on a sizzling plate. Individual dinner plates were also sizzling hot.

Sides were thinly sliced crisp onion rings and mashed sweet potatoes that complimented the meal.

A complimentary dessert, rich, moist cake square with a lighted birthday candle was served to my husband to celebrate his big day. I ordered creme brûlée with the crunchy sweet top. Yummy!

Impressive was when the waitstaff presented all entrees at the same time to all the guests at the table. No one needed to wait because everyone was served together. Very nice!

Highly recommend Mr. John’s Steakhouse to everyone!

Mr. John’s is ALWAYS a consistently amazing experience in regards to quality of service and menu!! It’s places like this that redefine “expensive” = Expensive is when you pay for more than what you get. Mr. John’s may be a little more pricey than other steakhouses, but you ALWAYS get what you pay for; a memorable experience.

This is a hotel restaurant with hotel prices. The steaks are seasoned lightly and not like a traditional steakhouse steak. The ribeye was so full of marbling that it was very hard to eat. The food, including lobster, is served in a sizzling plate so if you don’t eat it quickly, steak is now overdone and lobster was chewy.

Great atmosphere. While my husband and I dressed up, there was a wide range of attire. We enjoyed our appetizers but were extremely disappointed with our bone in ribeye. It's supposed to be prime grade, but we had to saw through it for a bite. They did get the temp correct at medium rare, but the meat just was not tender. They offered to cook another, but we declined because we just don't think it was a single bad cut/steak. Our server was a bit slow, aloof, and indifferent to our concerns.
That was our most anticipated meal of our trip and it left much to be desired.
