Visited after going to the festival of lights. It was cold, so we wanted hot food and a warm place. We did not receive prompt service when we walked in. We were just told to sit wherever we wanted. I had to grab our own menus. We received our drinks quickly, but then had to wait about 15 minutes to... More

Two couples stopped by for lunch on a hot steamy day. First problem was they wanted to sit us upstairs. It was too hot so we had to ask to be seated downstairs where the air conditioner was working. We ordered a chicken Cesar salad and two orders of coconut shrimp and a half rack of ribs. The ribs were... More

We were looking for a quick meal and found the food to be good and very reasonably priced. Also enjoyed the music choices being played on the jukebox. Our server was friendly and professional. When we travel we like to patronize local restaurants and this was a friendly neighborhood bar and grille.

We go to John's once a week after playing in a sports league and always have great service even when we are a larger group. It looks like a dive bar from the outside and when you step inside you see it is actually a dive bar, but the staff is friendly, the food is good and cheap, and the... More

I eat with a group of friends at John's every week. Their food is usually really good -from fish and chips to wings to ribs, soup, you name it. It is normally a good experience for everybody. However, last week, I went there and ordered blackened salmon. The fish tasted really rotten! My friend said the same thing about her... More

This is a nice little bar on a side street in Media. Their chili is awesome! Bar staff are friendly and professional.this ilike a Cheers type bar....everyone knows each other and are sociable with visitors. Happy hour prices are great. The inside is typical bar but it's light and airy...not dark and gloomy. I had a ball here onmy visit.
