I’ve eaten here several times with family, trying different dishes and hoping that the food would be better. Pizza is okay. Everything else I tried was mediocre. Waitstaff was always friendly. I’d de go there more if the food was better.

We have been eating here for at least 20 years. John's food is always good, service is good, they take reservations, which a lot of the restaurants here in the area do not. Their food is consistently delicious where other places are hit or miss.
