My daughter chose Johnny's for her birthday dinner! She ordered the Medallion Trio, her favorite and oft ordered entree. She ordered it medium rare. When it arrived it was tough and definitely not medium rare. Our gracious and attentive server, Hannah, had someone sent to the table to address our daughter's concerns. It was taken to the kitchen. Upon the return of the same medallions our daughter was told to hold it up to the light of the window to check it! We were all taken aback at that suggestion!! The gal was pretty assertive and made it clear that nothing would be done to correct the problem. Rather than create a scene we took the medallions home to our dog who doesn't mind tough and overcooked. This was not how we intended for our daughter to spend her birthday dinner!! Johnny's has always been a favorite of ours. Even though my husband and I were satisfied with our meals the shabby treatment by that staff member certainly tainted our enjoyment of the experience!

Johnny's is not the place to go for a quick bite, but the food is well worth the prices. Mind you, the prices are not out of line, but you will probably pay $20 for dinner, plus drinks and tip. However, the steaks and seafood are excellent. The crab-stuffed shrimp are mouth-watering, as is the steak with blue cheese. I love the bread with olive oil, so much better than the standard white roll and butter found in so many places. The seating is comfortable; the drinks are great; and I've never had bad service. Go, relax, and indulge.
Outstanding steaks but only a moderate salad bar. Not much selection in wine, but they have a low corking fee. Cook your own steak, or they will cook it for you. Plain place, but very good beef.
I would highly recommend Johnny's. I did not know what to expect from a restaurant attached to my hotel, but was pleasantly surprised. The service was great and the good is fantastic.
My husband and I had our wedding dinner at Johnny's and it was amazing! Food is delicious, worth the price.
