My wife and I visited for lunch. Our server was Sage. She was very pleasant and efficient. The food on the other hand was not as expected. My wife ordered a steak. It was over cooked. She ordered medium rare but it was medium well....More

Had lunch there for the first time, and although they were busy, (rodeo weekend) we were soon seated & had menus presented promptly by a friendly young lady. It took about 20 minutes to get our meals after ordering which was reasonable considering how busy...More

Still my favourite in Swan River Manitoba. Locally owned. Not a franchisee. Service is super friendly. Food is top quality. Best sweet potato fries I've ever had. A must for dinner

We ordered the black pearl burger and honey dill ciabatta bread, with fries and gravy. Everything was delicious but the gravy was a bit tasteless. The server was extraordinaire. Will be back next year for work.

Not your typical truck-stop fare. We make Johnny`s a special outing at least once every time we visit the Valley. Saturday January 14 was the second time we have turned them loose and said `surprise us`. I feel honoured that Johnny chose to use my...More

This is a hidden gem in Manitoba's parkland region. The outside of the restaurant is unassuming, but the food is excellent. Serve everything from steaks, pastas and amazing pizzas. Servers are attentive and aim to make every guest feel special. Price range $15-40.
