Johnny V's has great food and a really neat atmosphere. Love the "antique/classic" theme of the restaurant. Great value in terms of the prices.

Went to Johnny V's close to Wisconsin State Fair Park this week on our Milwaukee trip to meet some former coworkers. The restaurant is open for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner. I think the food for breakfast was about average. Very similar to other family restaurants like Denny's or IHOP. Reasonable prices, average food.

Johnny V's Classic Cafe is an inviting-looking little place in a strip mall along a stretch of road near the Wisconsin State Fair Park. My wife and I decided to give it a try on a recent Saturday around dinner time. The pair of notes on the entry doors, "Use Other Door" and "This is the Other Door", brought a... More

They have a very large menu! We have always found the food is good and you certainly get a good portion. I love the chicken and dumpling soup, which they serve every day. We usually order delivery and they are quick!

We had an early valentine's dinner Monday Feb 13. Great chicken special and perfect sizes from Senior menu to all-you-can-eat. Our waitress was wonderful, attentive. The price is right. The rooms were clean.

Just love their skillets any time of the day! It can be busy but the service is generally fast and friendly.

Been here several times for breakfast and lunch. Many items to chose from on the menu. Generous portions. Never had a bead meal here. And as always, great service.

Went with family. the ones that got the fish fry and the cod raved as some of the best fish they have eaten. I had a really good Wisconsin Burger (1/3 lb brat / 1/3 burger) and one of my sisters got some really good cheese curds. One more thing, my sister had chicken and dumpling soup. The largest bowl...

We ate at Johnny V's twice for breakfast and the service and food were phenomenal. The only teeny tiny blemish is they do not have grits on the breakfast menu. Now you might be saying they are too far north to have grits but they do have two types of hot sauce and they are no where near Mexico. Additionally,... More

We eat at this establishment regularly; however, after trying & failing to receive a decent meal on a Sunday, we're done! This past Sunday was horrible & I told the hostess about my undercooked eggs, bacon & RAW, cold hash browns. Her reply, "Sorry about that." I guess Johnny doesn't need the business. For some reason, the Sunday staff is... More
