    The food was good. I just wish there was more choices. More portion sizes. Different sauces to pick from. We would go more if we could have a steak dinner for 2 for less than 50.00. With tip our bill was 140.00 with just one beer. It was our 6 yr wedding anniversary and we got a piece of cake to share which was awesome. We might go back in a few yrs.

    Sophie was great, excellent service, very attentive. We didn't get the name of the young woman that was assisting with water refills and clearing the table, but she was excellent as well. Food was great, but a bit over priced for what you get.

    This is an amazing place steak being the main feature. What like about Janko's is the quality of the food stays the same. Steaks were great, the grilled rolls delicious and the mushrooms were slightly spicy and perfect to accompany the steak. Service was attentive and friendly. This is the place to eat because nothing seems to change in terms of food quality. That said, it's looking a little rough for wear and could use a little TLC and restoration. The beams in this place are dusty! The booth vinyl seats are ripped. So if they are going for hole in the wall/dive atmosphere, so be it. However, the front of house refrigerator looks like it could have a good clean out. Just makes you wonder how clean everything else is. That said, I highly recommend as the food and service is amazing. Just needs a little spring cleaning.

    Steak was good but the chicken came out raw. Very disappointing. They just wanted to throw the same piece back on the grill and I’m like, ‘no’ bring a brand new one. They did not seem happy about doing that. Messaged them about it on Facebook but never received a reply.

    After hearing for years how great the steaks were. I was so looking forward to my steak dinner. Only to be disappointed. The steak was a little chewy and didn’t have a savory flavor. I was quite surprised. I don’t think I will be going back. For as much as it cost. I expected more.

    Terrific steaks & other at a fair price, but a true mom & pop type place. Tables crammed together (I could’ve eaten off the next tables plates), plastic upholstered convention seats and tiny tables. Everything comes with a baked potato and a salad… only veg were asparagus or broccoli. The noise level was over the top too given the number of people crammed in. Given that, if you’re prepared for the experience the food was really good & service friendly and fast.

    We celebrated our 34th anniversary here. It was the 3rd time doing so, and I think the food was better than since Janko passed. Laura was the nicest and best server we’ve had anywhere for such a long time. She really made us feel special on our day. The crab leg appetizer serving was spectacular, wonderfully fresh and succulent. The steaks as always done as we requested and flavorful. The cheese platter was a terrific variety of cheeses and treats. The port wine cheese really stood out. We appreciated such a wonderful meal.

    Overall the experience was very hectic and stressed. We didn’t sit down until about 15 minutes after our reservation after we arrived early. The meatballs were fine. Steak was below average mushrooms and onions were not good. Really unimpressed with the food. The servers and hostess were all insanely stressed visibly. Food was slow and cold. I will not go back. Only good part was it wasn’t insanely expensive for a steak house. I was very disappointed.

    Our reservation was 4:30. We got there at 4:23. 2 people were in first entry doors but not inside main door. As I reached to open door, it was pulled back from me rather aggressively and she said not open yet. She locked door. Locking two people in first entry area. Keep in my mind a bit chilly on Saturday in February. As many others arrive some to specifically oin 2 people locked in entry they couldn’t get out. It was just odd. Not the kind of customer experience I would expect. Why couldn’t we stand in entry and why so rudely grab and lock door. Otherwise great service and delicious food.
