Wife got the Chicken Croquettes and said they were a bit dry. We enjoyed the freshness of the salad bar and really good soups. The waitress seemed to forget about us. I'm not... More

Looks can be deceiving, as John's Diner didn't look that great from the outside but the food and service was top notch! Sandra was our waitress and was so attentive and friendly. The food was great quality and arrived in good time despite the restaurant being busy. We stayed in the Clarion hotel and their restaurant wasn't open and John's... More

More than the standard diner, John's offers some home-made meals and has a salad bar that is always good and fresh.

My son and I visited John's Diner on a recent business trip. Diners seem to be everywhere in the East and this one came highly recommended by a local. We entered, and after being seated, were immediately greeted by Paula who was to be our waitress. That was a our good fortune. You see, Paula is a wonderful waitress who... More
