Service is mediocre in here. We have been in a few times. Steak sandwich was extremely disappointing. Plenty of space to sit a a varied menu. Some of the waiting staff act like they really don't want to be selfish here while others are very pleasant.

Johnny Frank's has the feel of a local pub even though it is connected to the Meadowlands Hotel. Food is great and service is exceptional. And depending on the time of day (or events at hotel), it can be a quite oasis or a happening venue complete with music.

Thank Packed_10
