We have seen this restaurant featured on a local news channel in the mornings and finally tried it last night. Wow. Nice friendly staff, the bar staff knows how to make a great Old Fashioned. Order your dessert first otherwise you won't have room. Don't eat all the bread even though it is so delicious... save room for your meal.... More

Had a very friendly wait person, Amy. I ordered chicken picatta because I wasn't into having a steak. I was very pleased with the dinner - wished I had ordered it without onions but it was still very good. I had a baked potato that came with sour cream. See that if you want a "loaded" baked potato the cost... More

So ,it's time for a birthday dinner,where to go ?If you are looking for a place where you can carry on a conversation,this is not it.Hard surfaces,hard chairs and maybe not enough staff.The menu is adequate,and the meals good.But,there are many places in Madison that fit this description at a lesser coast.

Dear Redmen - So sorry Johnny's was a bit loud for you. We want to have the music just loud enough to create a vibe. We want to have a bit of energy in the restaurant. More

The only reason I won't say it's the best dinner spot in the area is because I haven't tried every restaurant. My wife and I went here for a date and it was perfection. The steaks, appetizers (crab cake, salad, bread), desert (tirimasu) and drinks. We couldn't have asked for a better server either (Jill). She was very attentive, provided... More

We had a large group in town for an overnight business trip. Johnny's is in a great location, and being near our lodging made it idael. We were there on a Wednesday night, so it wasn't particularly crowded, but the service was great. Bartender was spot on, and once seated our waitress kept up with our large crowd very well.... More

We went during the week, after lunch rush. The restaurant was mostly empty but we received excellent service and delicious food.
