Not a bad place to sit and watch a Cubs game and have a beer or two. The food is your normal bar/restaurant food and didn't strike me as special. The staff was nice and checked often.

Recently visited with several friends. Very lively atmosphere. Several TVs that can be seen from most tables. Our food was good. Wide selection on the menu. Prices are in line with other bar restaurants in the area. Does get a little loud.

The bartenders were very attentive and generous with the beer tasting. The food was good - menu had good variety.

Court Avenue can be crowded so stop into Johnny's and relax, watch sports and grab a bite to go with the beer selections.

Great place to grab a burger and watch a game. The burgers have a nice beefy flavor and are not over cooked. Plenty of screens to watch too.

We visited as an informal evening of event fun. It is a sports bar of course with lots of TVs. Lots of people but the servers did a great job of keeping up with the crowd. Cold beer, good service and fun. Just as expected.

This is great spot to watch the game and hang out. However, a Saturday evening dinner was probably not the best time to try out the menu. The food was ok, but nothing spectacular. Service was slow given the loud crowd. Worth another try for...More

I've been to this bar after work on a weekday and at 1 a.m. on a Saturday. If you want a chill, relaxed place I recommend not going after 10 p.m. on the weekends. Gets crowded, hard to move, unless you want to hang out...More
