This restaurant is cool, and you can also find a mechanic bull, for late evening challenges. the food is ok, mainly Mexican style. In addition, if you go there before 8 pm you can enjoy"happy hour" over drinks. The place becomes very lively in the evening.

Johnny Utah's is adjacent to Club Quarters Hotel. It is a rocking nightclub. Some older people were inside, but it was mostly young people. It is a rocking nightclub, ladies were allowed to dance ontop of the bar! They were having a good time. I think that they were part of a bachelorette party.

Wished we had heeded other reviews. We almost left when we saw how grungy it was and when I realized the bathroom was unisex and over the top filthy. I can deal with just about anything if the food is good though. But this food was not good. It was AWFUL. Everything was over cooked. My shrimp was reduced to... More

Located in the basement of Club Quarters Rockefeller Center is this attractive western oriented restaurant. There is even a Bull to ride! They have lunch specials and late at night there is a line to get in as it is very popular

Not the sort of place that stands out in a huge city. Is in a basement. Most everyone was under 30, unwinding after work. Not many eating dinner when I went so was a bit concerned about dinner.

Not to impressed with the service at Johnny Utah's. They were not busy but he waiter was rude and acted like we were keeping him from doing something more important.

We were staying at a nearby hotel and within their guest information was a menu for Johnny Utah's and a note stating that if we ordered from here it could be delivered to our door and charged to the room. This seemed extremely convenient on the first night of our stay when we were exhausted and hungry! We ordered the... More

We went on a Wednesday night and there was only one other table. Our server acted like she was doing us a favour by taking our order...after we went to find her.

With less than 20 people in their bar on a Wednesday night, the server acted like she was doing us a favour by taking our order. She didn't bother to come back and see if we needed anything else and forgot several items on or order...her response was to shrug her shoulders. Terrible service, mediocre drinks, and I can tell...

Description
In July 2007, New York welcomes Johnny Utah's, the urban cowboy experience, to Rockefeller Center. The Johnny Utah's experience begins with cuisine full of flavors & spices which embody the real meaning of Southwestern food. With hearty recipes of our cultural ancestors, Johnny Utah's offers a menu full of zesty Texan BBQ ribs, savory steak fajitas, & authentic Mexican tequila. Almost every seat in the house has a view of the dining room's main attraction, Manhattan's only mechanical bull. Showcasing the full essence of the Southwestern theme, the beast is theatrically surrounded with cascading metal chains & burning candles that echo "rings of fire," signifying the celebration of the icon. The interior was designed as an interpretation of an old western mining shaft with salvaged antique tiles & pony-hide furniture. Johnny Utah's is a place where the music's always pumping and the drinks are always flowing. We have redefined the urban cowboy experience through our unique promotions and promiscuous atmosphere. Cowgirls, cowboys and rock stars of all kinds are encouraged to come in and get wild.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
