Mr. John's Steak House Restaurant Review

: Mr. John’s is a place for savoring a leisurely, albeit heavy, steak dinner. With the ambience of a steakhouse from yesteryear, including tile floors, ceiling fans, lots of wood and soft lighting, it is a far cry from some of the dazzling newer restaurants nearby. Diners may indeed choose from several cuts of USDA Prime corn-fed beef, all of which come sizzling in butter in the style made famous at the original Ruth's Chris Steak House. If it is not red meat you crave, consider some of the chef’s Italian specialties. The Tuscan-style veal chop or the twin broiled lobster tails are good alternatives. Befitting its mission, the wine list, which is frequently updated, focuses on big, beefy reds (the best hail from Italy and California), but only a few are offered by the glass and there are no half bottles. You’ll also find some fortified wines for dessert and sparkling wines and Champagnes for festive purposes. On most nights, guests can order freshly made cannoli from Angelo Brocato’s, the century-old local Italian ice cream store; that is, if you can pull yourself away from the house-made fudge brownie à la mode.
