About the restaurant
When you walk through the front door of Johnny’s Kitchen and Tap, you inhale the delicious aroma of chicken cooking in a wood-roasting rotisserie oven. Cozy, casual, and nicely outfitted, Johnny’s in business since 1995, has a large bar that separates two dining rooms and offers something for everyone. We have a party room that accommodates up to 70 people.



Johnny’s is well known for their wood-roasted chicken, rotisserie-roasted pork, baby back ribs and real mashed potatoes. The menu also features steak and chops, fresh fish, pastas, salads and sandwiches. Specials are offered daily and include such favorites as charbroiled fresh fish, Chicken al Forno and Shrimp Fontinella. Johnny’s spacious bar offers a full wine list, a wide selection of beers on tap and an extensive martini list. Don’t forget to save room for dessert-the fresh baked Apple Pie with French vanilla ice cream and caramel is a favorite!

About the restaurant
Winner of 2016, 2017, 2018 Best Steakhouse, Best Italian Restaurant, Best Seafood Restaurant Best Martini, Best Romantic Restaurant, Best Unique Salad, Best Vegetarian Cuisine, Best Place to Dance, and Best Venue for Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties. Winner of 2016 Best New Restaurant.
Primo sure does live up to it's name!

PRIMO (meaning “The Best” in Italian) is our interpretation of the marriage of a classic American steakhouse and a signature Italian restaurant.

Replete with soaring ceilings, Italian marble, and custom furniture, PRIMO's grand and dramatic dining instantly sets a luxurious yet comfortable tone. The atmosphere is rivaled only by the menu, which is composed of both Prime and Grass Fed steaks, chops, and classic Italian dishes inspired by the vast regions of Italy. PRIMO's menu is both familiar and sophisticated, and complimented perfectly by our 100+ bottle wine list.

LeTour has done a great job transforming this space beautifully. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Our service was excellent as was the food. One dish was overly salted but everything else from appetizers to desert was delicious! We will be back.
