Thanks so much for the review. Thought you'd be interested in knowing we bought Johnny's 3 1/2 years ago and are happy continuing the legacy of great food in Newton Center. Hope to say hello in person one of these days!

We've been going here for a while. In March, I came here with a couple of friends and I wish we didn't. The server we had was very rude and nasty. She was very impatient and showed us how irritable she was at the time....More

Excellent choices, and execution. Wait staff was very friendly and offered suggestions which definitely enhanced our dining experience. Absolutely recommend! The Diablo Pastrami with onion rings, and the Tuna melt were very well enjoyed.

I take my twin granddaughters here about two to three times a month. They love the chocolate chip pancakes and I get the eggs Benedict. Always great. Great wait staff and always clean. Can't beat it!!
