Traveling home after winter in Wyoming, Johnny’s saved the day. Stopped for the night and motel made a mistake and booked us for the next night. They had no rooms so put us up in their sister motel across the street. We were in their last room available. I don’t think they rented this room out because of multiple problems. Anyway, we had a lovely dinner at Johnny’s, good food, service and drinks. My crab cake was good and my husband’s seafood pomodoro was even better. I felt the prices were reasonable. Our waitress was attentive and efficient, ending a very trying day on an extremely pleasant note. Thanks, Barb.

Drunk Sirloin was very tough. Filet was over cooked on outside edges. Service adequate, but could be friendlier and timelier.

Great disappointment. We were looking forward to finding a nice restaurant near our son’s college. Unfortunately, we we started with no waters after asking several times, my husband never received his salad, then 45 minutes after ordering the waiter stopped by to tell us two of our meals were no longer available. We had been there 90 minutes already. We politely asked to speak with a manager. When none came, I went to find one. She was surprised by our issues, then came to our table and basically said yes it’s true they were out of our orders. Not offering any real explanation or solution. The waiter never returned. The service was comparable to a cheap chain restaurant with $40 steaks.

We made reservations and wee greeted with a friendly smile when we arrived. On my reservation request I had requested a booth as it was our 43rd anniversary. They had a booth for us as per my request. The server was very friendly and helpful. The food was as we ordered. The experience was one of the best we have had. If you try Johnnies I believe you will happy with the experience also.

We hadn’t been to Johnny’s for years. Out waitress and her buddy were welcoming and helpful. We had the Veal Sinatra and it was flavorful and tender. In fact we took 1/2 of it home for dinner last night!

My wife and I were there to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary we were Sat in between two very large parties both parties had several children each that were constantly running through and around our table pushing our table at one point almost knocking over water leaning against our table and talking to us we were expecting A more quiet and romantic atmosphere. We also had what appeared to be a very new waiter who was very shaky almost spilling my wife’s martini on her, as well as ignoring our table for long periods of time at one point I had to get up and walk over to him to ask for refills of our drinks. On a better note the food was delicious And the drinks were very good

We love Johnny's and were happy to celebrate my husband's birthday there with our daughter and her boyfriend. The ambience is wonderful and the drinks, bread and salad delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and entertaining. But... three of us ordered steak (different cuts) and they were awful. Very dry and not up to the usual standard. My husband's entree was also cold. Very disappointed. Not likely to return anytime soon unless just for drinks

Made reservation on 12-15 for 2-23 at 6pm. Arrived at 5:30. Was told we would not be seated on time. Went to bar and ordered cuz so many people were mad about no table. Finally got called to our table at 6:22. We declined and sat at bar for dinner. Never again, they were totaled unprepared. Manager yelling across the bar. Very unprofessional.

Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were not seated until 6:15. This was due to overbooking. There was a concert that started at 7:30 and people were not clearing out of their tables. Our waitress did a great job of getting our food to us, but we felt rushed and were not able to finish our dinner. The manager was apologetic and comped our meal for us. We would have rather just gotten our table close to the time of our reservation which we booked in December.

The food and drinks were excellent. I have never had a bad meal here.

However, we had to wait for 45 minutes, after our reservation time, before were seated. The hostess seated at least three tables who checked in after us, who had the same reservation time, before we were seated. She was dismissive of me, when I asked about why we had not been seated.

Our dinner reservation was two hours prior to a concert at the Taxslayer Center, across the street from the restaurant. Instead of enjoying a nice meal, and possibly dessert, we had to rush to finish our meal, just to make it to the start of the concert.

If I wanted call ahead seating, without a specific reservation time, I would have gone to Texas Roadhouse or Red Lobster.

The manager did reach out to me today, to apologize for the delay and our so-so experience. We will return to this restaurant. But, if we have another experience like this one, it will be the last.

Best Steakhouse. Delicious melt in your mouth steaks. Server gave her opinion of some of the drinks and we found her descriptions were off. The drinks we ordered were amazing. She had recommended others and we went with out first choice only to be very satisfied. Server seemed a bit down on some of the items we asked about. We trusted our own judgement and ordered what we wanted. What we ordered was superb!

The food and service was outstanding. The seating, however, left a lot to be desired. They crammed us between a large party and another 2 person table and we might as well have all been sitting together. No room to walk between tables and the servers had a hard time as well.

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear the food and service was great but disappointed to hear about your seating arrangement. I know how uncomfortable it can be to all crammed it.
