I came in with 2 of my friends. We walked in and it was packed. We found a table and got service right away. The fish and chips were fabulous so was the coleslaw. I will definitely come again. Prices were good too. The one negative I would say is it was very cold in the restaurant.

Good food, generous portions, reasonable prices, friendly service. The menu has some European items, as well as traditional North American fare. The soups are all homemade. This place seems to be unknown to the tourists, which is refreshing in this town (nothing against the tourists; they're instrumental to the local economy, and hey, we've all been tourists somewhere). The decor... More

I was visiting some friends in St Catherine;s on September 18th and after church they suggested we go to the restaurant for lunch. They had gone there before, this was my first visit The price was very good and the baked fish and chips that I had was very tasty. The service was prompt and the server was very friendly... More

My Fiancé & I were not at all impressed with the service or food during our visit. The place is old & dingy, service is super slow and the food is nothing to write home about. We were really expecting a great home-cooked style meal and left disappointed. Needless to say, we won't be returning to John's.

I think there's a time and place for that talk... I could hear them... More

My parents have been coming to John's Restaurant ever since I can remember. It's been about 10 years since I had been to this establishment. The restaurant is exactly like a family diner: older style interior, but a really homey feel. It's definitely been upgraded from the last time I was here with the family. There's a beautiful fish tank... More

We were getting tired of hamburgers and french fries and other chain restaurants. Johns is a home cooking style that has about anything you can imagine on the menu. We had cabbage rolls, spaghetti and meatballs, cheese ravioli and alfredo. With the exception of the cheese ravioli (which were a bit hard) everything was great. They make their own pies... More
