John's City Diner
Pretty cool place to relax and eat downtown Birmingham. A little challenge to find a place to park.
The food was very good but a little overpriced . Fish and Chips..$17.00...taste good but really a 10.00 meal.
Give it a visit in downtown Birmingham
It’s OK. I have no intentions on heading back there very soon. It was a Sunday night and I chose it by default. Not terribly disappointed
Pimento cheese app was delicious! Would definitely visit again.
We enjoyed our dinner especially the okra appetizer. It is an upscale diner with southern classics on the menus.
We grabbed dinner at JCD before going to a concert at the Lyric. The food is always superb. The pecan encrusted trout is fabulous. The pork belly was a great appetizer. Perfect place for dinner before a concert.
Perfect bday dinner with family. Great conversation, including one hearing challenged family member and noise level was perfect. The food was amazing!! Great service. We will be back more often for dinner as much as lunch. A Bham treasure!
Food was really good. Our only complaint was that our entree came out 2 minutes after our appetizer.
Janelle was our wait staff. She was fantastic. She was knowledgeable of the menu, attentive to our needs, and very nice. The food was fantastic. The fried okra appetizer was amazing. Great dining experience
It was great!
The delectable food was served swiftly in a lovely, friendly manner by Angie. Our group had a variety of entrees; all agreed that their selection was tasty and would order again.
We were going to a play and wanted to eat downtown!
Girls night out
Unexpected Michelin Star...
The Seoul wings were delicious. I enjoyed the herb roasted chicken.
Always a treat to eat here when I am in downtown Birmingham. The Meatloaf is a staple. Ketchup not required. Well trained staff. I will have to go back for dinner and try their new cocktail list.
House special meatloaf cold, dry, tasteless. Service cavalier. Good cocktail.
Good diner vibe; great food; outstanding, friendly service; as usual, great dining experience! Thanks!
The meatloaf was terrible. Served cold
Lovely food as always - the pork chop is so delicious, and the Seoul wings are worth the mess!
Our server Janelle was great, she really made the dining experience great. We had the fried green tomato appetizer, the pork chop, and the burger and they were all tasty. Thank you for an amazing dining experience.
There was nothing special about the restaurant or the food or the service.
Great food, great company. Very enjoyable experience. Cici is the best.
It was our last day visiting the area to find housing for our daughter and came upon John's when searching the internet for restaurants in the area. We wished we had found it the first night, because we would of gone back for several meals. The food and service was incredible.
We will definitely eat here again when we come back in August.
We just wanted to get some appetizers because we had a late lunch, but thank goodness our daughter ordered the chicken and waffle dish. It was the best, along with the appetizers we ordered.
Can't wait to visit again!
Awesome southern food and vibe.
We had reservations for 8 people and were seated quickly. Unfortunately 1/2 of us were seated under extremely hot lights (halogen?) in a lowered ceiling over upholstered bench. This made us uncomfortable for our entire stay.
Our server did a great job, we ordered several appetizers which were all very good, we liked the fancy bacon the least due to it being mostly fat, although the grits served with it were awesome. Our favorite appetizer was the pimento cheese and the wonderful fried pita triangles! We ordered the pork chop, chicken & waffles, pimento cheese burger, a seasoned roast chicken dish and Panko/pecan crusted fish for our entrees. All were a huge hit except the fish and it was a dud. My husband said it was over cooked and dry. The white choc bread pudding and the red velvet cake were great too!
When we walked in it took a few minutes before someone noticed us. I think we just missed a rush. When we sat our server Logan offered us a drink and made a suggestion on a vodka which was really good. He (Logan) was full of knowledge of the menu and the restaurant. Our food was sooo good. The pork rinds. Still cracking. Omg!!! Then we had “The Hangover” waffle. I was not suffering from a hangover but, when I do I will want to fly to Birmingham and have that waffle.
I was a great experience and Logan took it over the top! If we are ever in Birmingham again this will be the top place to visit.
Nice and vending out. Food and service outstanding
Service was not good. Hit this place on a busy night. Food came out cold but didn't see the waitress until the check was delivered.
Very good meal. I would recommend to a friend. Seated right at our reservation time. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Potions were very fair for price.
Food was very good. Will go back and would recommend.
Great food and fantastic service. Highly recommend!
As always wonderful. I have had every dish on the menu...except maybe sandwiches.. good people, good food, good place.
Great food. Service was good. Highly recommend. In city but parking on the street available.
It was a great experience. The food was delicious and served promptly. The pita points were the best.
An old time favorite. Didn't disappoint. Food was good and service even better.
I had the NC Trout and my husband had the Chicken. They were delicious!!
Excellent food and service as always. However, even though we reserved a table for 5 in advance, we were placed in the back corner next to the kitchen door, which was distracting.
Excellent food. Great service. Been to John’s many times and have yet to have a bad meal or experience.
Food was ok. They serve greens with no cornbread. Who does that? Bread pudding is outstanding.
The food was really good I enjoyed the flavor the MAC was a little more runny than I like it. I usually like it creamier but the taste was impeccable. Service was amazing! I’d definitely come again!
