    We got out of nutcracker earlier than expected and was able to get a seat an hour ahead of our reservation. This is a big date night my wife and I have every year so it means a lot to us when things work out. It was great thank you!

    We were in town visiting from Pittsburgh. The steak reviews looked good, so I went for a Super Filet prepared “Pittsburgh Rare” with a side of mushrooms and a Route Stock Cabernet. It was by far the best prepared Pittsburgh Rare steak I’ve ever had. Highly recommend.

    The service was fantastic, and the steak was outstanding, cooked exactly to my medium rare request. It was a bit noisy, but it was a lively pregame atmosphere so that's to be expected.

    I loved the service. All of the staff was great. The food was not good. The steak was chewy and the sides were nothing special. The setting was sad. . Perhaps cleaning would help? There’s so much potential and it’s not being utilized.

    This is the best place in Bloomington for a steak. It's been in operation for almost? 50 years and has retained its atmosphere and quality. You should not miss this restaurant when you are in Bloomington.

    We go here about once a year. We love it. Between the rolls and meatballs, it’s the best way to start. We love the steak as well. The memorabilia on the wall is second to none as well.

    Janko's is my favorite steak restaurant and has been for awhile. I live near Indy and have been to most of the downtown steak places (including St Elmo's a few times) and Janko's beats them, IMO. So, if you've ever wondered about this spot and live up near Indy, believe me when I say it's worth the drive.

    Steaks are excellent! Reservations are not accommodated on a timely basis. Our reservation was for 7:00pm and we weren’t seated until 7:45pm…unacceptable! Menu is very limited, but you go there for a steak, and they are outstanding!

    Walked in here on a business dinner in January 1988. Great steaks and very good reasonable wine list. Have been a patron as a resident and a traveler for over 30 years; you won’t find a better steak, great service.

    This place was really very good. No fuss, no muss. Steak, salad, baked potato. The ambiance doesn't quite match the price point, which is my only small issue, but the flavor did. My steak was cooked to perfection, so tender, and the char was *chef's kiss* delicious. Well worth the money. Our waitress was professional and very nice.
