We came on a long weekend and the place was packed, but once we were seated (there were seven of us) we were served pleasantly and promptly. Loved the variety of the breakfast menu for children and adults. The treat was having mini-chocolate milkshakes -...More

What a great breakfast place near BC Law. The service and food were terrific! Also a nice casual bustling friendly ambience.

We love diners and search for them when our of town. We had the burgers, onion rings and fries. Best burger around. Wish I had the homemade milkshake but was a windy cold day. Awesome decorations. A real nostalgic diner.

Food was good, but made better because we had Scott as our server. He was so accommodating and helpful, really sweet. We had the chicken tenders. Huge portions of all white meat very tasty!

We love to eat here when we're in the area. There is always a large crowd, today's wait was 20 minutes and so worth the wait. Food is always delicious and the prices are reasonable for this area.

Sat at window table. Got served very quickly. Ordered homemade hash.. yum. I enjoyed it all. My husband didn't like toast, but I did. He wanted it pre-buttered. I'm ok buttering toast myself!! Great waitress.

If you are looking for a no frills brunch or breakfast, head to Johnny's. Love the food, servers and that we can get in and out quickly, unless it is for weekend brunch...

If you want a really solid diner, it seems to me that you either want it to be really cheap and straightforward, or you want it to be really excellent and a kind of salute to the diner thing. Johnny's just isn't quite either one....More

Real diner atmosphere with a large and eclectic menu. I agree with some of the previous commenters that cleanliness suffers a bit, but not excessively. Crunchy French toast was delicious, coffee though was mediocre and should be better to match such a good breakfast menu....More

Just what I was looking for on a chilly day- HOT MATZOH BALL SOUP. Oh, sooo good. Also I got the two Pearl Hot Dogs on grilled rolls. My guest got the fresh Salmon Sandwich. This was good size portion of fish on a roll...More
