The first Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse® opened in Des Moines, Iowa to rave reviews in April of 2002. Today, there are ten locations in Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Kansas and Ohio, with several more on the way. As a distinctly upscale dining experience with reasonable prices, Johnny’s is uniquely positioned between casual and fine dining concepts.
The ambiance at Johnny’s is reminiscent of the classic supper clubs of the ‘40s and ‘50s, creatively blending the sophistication of the past with a modern edge. This innovative design features thematic décor sets and vintage finishes such as thick tiled floors, large upholstered booths and crystal chandeliers. Luxurious draperies create private dining areas within the restaurant, where guests can enjoy music by Frank Sinatra, Diana Krall or Michael Buble. The Blue Bar™ provides guests with a lively lounge atmosphere where cell phones take a backseat to conversation. This is not your average steakhouse; the eclectic atmosphere has been fashioned to draw a diverse crowd.
At Johnny’s, our steaks take center stage, and are complemented by a gourmet assortment of Italian cuisine and seafood, alongside an expertly curated wine list. Whether you choose our famous Steak DeBurgo or the classic Chanel No. 5, you’re sure to satisfy your cravings. With new-fashioned luxuries and old-fashioned service and hospitality, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse brings the Rat Pack era to the 21st Century.
