John G's is located in an unassuming spot within the confines of a shopping center and by all means is aesthetically unappealing. The food, however, is a different story! Do not pass by without giving them a try! Food portions are large. You could share...More

Inexpensive, hearty, quality food. Cash only. Popular with locals and tourists staying at Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa across the street. Nice place, friendly staff.

If they took reservations, I presume that most people would take advantage of that rather than stand in the usual line. However if it is a larger party, say ten or more, I would certainly call. There is no harm in a "no".
