Went to Johnny's with two friends from out of town who used to work there. It was a blast from the past to be in this 95 year-old Omaha icon. More than nostalgia, the steak and prime rib were perfect. Mushroom gravy comes with steak...More

For 35 years my friend and I return from our hiking trip and eat at Johnny's Cafe. The potato Au gratin is very good. The steaks and prime rib are superior. Starters are ok. Salad boring. Desserts are interesting. Enjoy the atmosphere. I suggest more...More

Don't let the word "Cafe" in the name fool you! I'm so glad that I chose to dress nicely for our dinner at Johnny's. There is definitely a formal yet friendly style to this restaurant. My husband ordered the Ribeye, and I ordered the Chicken...More
