From strollers to date night, John's Place is a Lincoln Park staple with a little something for everyone.

A classic Lincoln Parker with a coveted outdoor patio and some darn good pumpkin pancakes. Not up for the sweet stuff? The Webster Street omelet is solid.

Soothing surrounds and very delish – I couldn't disagree more with the last angry person's review regarding John's Place.. perhaps they missed their last anger managment class...or had a fight with a JOHN in a past life. In any event, John's Place is the most accommodating, comfortable and delicious place to eat. I had the blackened Salmon and my date had a delicous burger. What made it even better, was that we happened to be there on 1/2 price bottles of wine night. Our server was fab and I can't wait to go back!!

WAY OVERPRICED! – $12 salad, are you kidding me, and not large either. Definitly not worth it. Southwest Chicken Salad is really good, but not work $12, more like $8. Ridiculous. Won't go back.

Wished it was good... – This is a cute location, and cute decor, and I really did give it a chance. I went there for brunch and had a lackluster experience. The food is really basically passable, but no more. The omelletes were bland, the pancakes equally joyless. Yes, I know the menu is "basic" but not even the simple ingredients are pepared well. I went there recently for a salad and the lettuce was brownish on the corners, the goat cheese was sort of lumped on top as an afterthought and it was the saddest little boring salad I have ever had presented to me at a restaurant. These guys need to up the quality, particularly in a neighborhood like this, with a million other better places to go practically down the street.

Mellow, yellow neighborhood place that packs in Lincoln Parkers for comfort food. – In Short
A bustling storefront on an otherwise quiet corner, John's Place buzzes with an all-ages Lincoln Park crowd. Exposed brick and painted yellow walls, knickknacks on shelves and a wood-burning stove make for a cozy atmosphere. The healthy, globe-trotting menu works its way from hummus and veggie burritos to salads, burgers and barbecue chicken tacos. Weekends are busy, when locals pack the place for breakfast items like buttermilk pancakes and super-fluffy omelettes.

Great dining experience – I haven't had such a good dining experience in a long time.

I was recommended this place by a friend, and my first experience was phenomenal. On a Saturday night we were seated immediately in a cozy, intimate place by the fireplace. We watchched two families dining with kids few tables away and they ware having a fun time also. The server was knowlegeble and made good suggestions for our requests.

Our menu choices were the Vegetarian Chili-which was awesome! (and I don't usually like chili), the vegetarian eggplant sandwich was fresh and delicious, and the Salmon with Pesto was scrumptious. The manager also stooped by to welcome us and he was friendly and helpful.

John's going downhill – I have gone to John's for a number of years and always loved the place. However, the service has recently gotten terrible. The servers have become very rude and think they're doing you a favor by taking your order. I hope they can straighten this out because they have a nice menu and location.

Clean and Good Service ! – I have never had a bad expereince in this place. When my parents came to town I took them here and besides the 45 minute wait, everything was terriffic. The service was great, it is very clean, and if you like oatmeal...this is the place to go. The oatmeal is by far the best in town although they have a very extensive menu with many good entrees.

Drink to the Bottom: Bottomless Mimosas in Chicago Nothing screams \"the weekend\" or \"fun\" or \"brunch\" like \"bottomless mimosas.\"
I Moved to a New Neighborhood, and Need Some New Haunts: Roscoe Village… Roscoe Village isn\'t all about babies and strollers - it\'s made for yuppies, foodies and beer snobs…
