Excellent breakfast made quickly and delivered promptly. Despite the advertising though it was most certainly not 50's fun. Had to listen to bogus top 40 instead. Boooo!

This is one of most recent finds. Well positioned as it is close to the main hospitals in |Ottawa and offer a good menu for a quick meal if that is what you need. Every meal that we have had there has been excellent. Love their club sandwich served with onion rings. Not diet food but delicious.

We have been to this property a few times for breakfast and we continue to be underwhelmed. Ts servers seem to think that it is perfectly acceptable to refer to clients as 'you guys' and upon entering instead of even saying 'good morning' or 'hello' upon entering the greeting is 'sit anywhere you guys want' The morning menu is anything...

Made a quick stop in with the kids on the way home from an "adventure"! Burgers came super fast... tasted great! Great onion rings and awesome shakes ( which have unfortunately become a rarity these days!) Our waitress was comical and friendly and made our visit that much more enjoyable. Great value for the amount of food you get!

What I like the most about this retro diner is the atmosphere of the past and their menu. There are plenty of choices for every taste. From pasta to hamburgers, you are sure to find something you will like. I don't know about their breakfast menu, but their lunch menu is excellent when it comes to sandwiches. They also have...

Recently had lunch here with my elderly parents. We enjoyed the western sandwich, greek chicken wrap and fish n chips. Especially like the onion rings - light and tasty worth going here for the onion rings alone.

In for an early morning breakfast. Standard bacon and egg and toast. Nicely cooked and quickly delivered in a quiet time. Over easy eggs were perfect but the home fries were way too salty, practically inedible. But fir the price, pretty good.

I stumbled into Rockin' Johnny's on my way back from the office after trudging through the snow banks. They serve up your classic diner fare - burgers, toasted club sandwich, etc. The food is nothing to write home about, but it is hot, tastes good, and is priced right for those on a budget. Next time I'm in Ottawa I'll... More

This restaurant provides a better option than eating at a fast food chain while shopping at a mall. The food is pretty reliable, priced right and allowed for a bit more of an atmosphere for chatting with someone. The staple burger with fries was really pretty good and the price was right. If you find yourself hungry at the Westgate... More

This wasn't the first time we've eaten at Rockin' Johnny's Diner at the Westgate Plaza but it's the first time we're reviewing it. What we like most about this restaurant is the comfortable feel. Both the food and the service is consistently good and the staff really go out of their way to be accommodating. It's a diner so they... More
