We went there last Friday (10-22-2010) to have some drinks.
Friendly place, good beer, and cheap food.
Days later I checked the bills and found that on the food bill, they correctly listed the dishes that we ordered. But the subtotal was 25% more than the actual sum of the dishes. How could it be? Register malfunction? Perhaps, but it is fishy.
So I went back and complained to the manager. He could not explain how their cash register could make a mistake like that. Convenient, I say.
He did return the difference. I had to remind him to add tax to it.
So party goers, enjoy but do check your bill for correctness.
This place is has character, and great food. I don't if their burgers are the best in town. They're definitely the best in Sunnyvale...so far. My favorite happens to be the Roasted pepper & Jack burger, which comes on a toasted onion roll. YOU MUST TRY THIS BURGER!!! Enjoy folks!

This place has some great food. Lines out the front door are common during lunchtime, with many of the folks repeat offenders, that shows you this place rocks. It might take you 10-15 minutes to order, but your food is ready in no time - and you can hang out on the big outdoor patio. Tri-tip Tuesdays are excellent, get the bigger sandwich if your hungary because the regular lacks enough sliced beef - it's more of a lady's sando. Happy Hours are not even that busy, so it is a good place to go after work for some beers and burgs. They could use a few more TV's if it were a big time sports bar, but they do have a older projection bigscreen that is always on local ports. I've even seen Bill Walsh - The Genius - eat there a few times (a few years ago), so this place has to be good. They're not open Sunday to watch NFL, that is the only bummer.

I have been going to St. Johns since 1984. I guess you will not hear anything negative from me. Burgers are EXCELLENT! Best in Town! Try the Guaco with Bacon burger you wont regret it! Everything else in their menu is also top notch. Pick any evening of the week and youll enjoy half price in both burgers and sandwiches. I take my family every Saturday morning. Cant beat paying around $22.00 to feed four of us burgers, fries, and drinks. Plenty of TVs, indoors and outdoors tables. Even if the place is packed, the line moves fast. Food is ready in 5-10 minutes.

Go during happy hour which is relatively a long period afterwork and worth it. Everyday they have a diff special. 1/2 off cheesesteaks, burgers, or appetizer days are always the best. Don't go for their Tuesday tri-tip lunch... it's not much good. Their bar is tiny, but u can always bring drinks back to ur red-checkered table.

I'm not a huge burger fan, but I enjoy a good one every once in a while. I've been to Kirk's and Clark's and St. John's by far my favorite. Their fries are the BEST, and service is fast. The burgers are consistently ready within 5 min, no matter how busy. Lunch crowd can sometimes be heavy. Everything is great! Get the fries and eat them with lots of ranch, the best! On a nice day, sit outside, too dark indoors. One negative we found out by accident is that they are closed on weekend evenings. Clark's got our biz that nite, but we will always come back to St. Johns! But workout a little harder the next day or else you will pack on the pounds after one of their meals!

After reading the good reviews about this place I went to check it out with a friend of mine, and we were completely disappointed. My burger was totally dry, and the pitcher of beer was too small. The TVs are too few and far apart to constitute a real sports bar. It was the opening day of college football (Fresno State was playing at Wisconsin), and they were showing all these preseason NFL games instead. How weak is that? The bar itself only sits about ten people, although there is plenty of seating elsewhere. Whether you are able to see a TV or not from your seat is a different story. Also, there are no waiters/waitresses. You have to stand in line and order your overpriced food, then go get it when your beeper flashes. On a upbeat note, their appetizers are pretty good, but thats about it.
