The wonderful smells from the kitchen that meet customers outside are delicious. Too bad the taste was a disappointment. One of our party had to send his hamburger back because it was overdone and cold. The salmon was excellemt. The service was slow and whole the waitress made a show of being shocked that the hamburger was below par no... More

Our waiter sat down to tell us about the restaurant. I had never had a server do that before. He told us a little about the restaurant's history then told us a list of about 5 or 6 specials that were not on the menu. My wife one of the specials, the barbecue sandwich with meat that had been cooked... More

I have been to Johnny Garlic's numerous times and have always enjoyed the food, atmosphere and beverages, until today. Advertised on website was happy hour from 3pm-6pm, and the restaurant doesn't open until 4pm. It was Taco Tuesday, and we each ordered one each of the specialty tacos. They came together all in the same baskets, not separated by customer.... More

Excited about going to dinner here and was sadly disappointed. When we arrived we were seated by the door and waiters station even though there were many open tables. Moved us down three tables and we waited. Finally our order was taken, no bread ever arrived. When our dinners arrived, they were just ok and very very greasy. I felt... More

We had dinner here the other night and came away underwhelmed. It was a busy night, and given the quality of the food we just can't understand how they can be so busy. Must be the cachet of Guy I guess. Prices are pretty comparable with other similar venues, but the food quality was just so-so. The Bison Meatloaf sandwhich... More

Must admit we expected so much more from this restaurant being a fan of Guy; we were disappointed. Small portions, nothing special on the menu and the food was so so. Went once which is enough for us.

Went for a date night..not busy so seated right away. Looking at the menu felt it was overpriced and not many offerings that I would normally go for. Ended up with appetizers for my meal plus garlic soup whic was delicious. Was very disappointed based on what I was expecting.

Good food! Excellent service! You can't miss. If you've never been to this chain restaurant I recommend you give it a try. Dinner for two with drinks (no dessert): under $50.00
