Ordered the Beet and Goat cheese salad with steak and shrimp. Friend ordered the philly cheesesteak and fries. Dinner was awesome! I was pleasantly surprised they packaged the meat separately from the salad. Glad it wasn’t soggy. Will def order from them again. Good meal.

Busy place but good food large venue with s wide selection of foods and beer on tap. This is a great place for the younger sports crowd. Lots of big screen TV visable everywhere. They have fast service considering the size of the place. Recommended.

Food is good with a ton of choices. We frequent Frosty John's usually for a Friday dinner. Reasonable prices, servicing staff is quick and friendly. Good choice if everyone has different food preferences. Everyone will find something.

This place is ok, has some good wing specials and cold beer, but I don't think they did a good job with the renovation. The lighting is terrible and I had a "spot light" shinning in my eye both times I've been there. There is...More
