We stopped in this restaurant after viewing the photograph posted here. This is absolutely not the restaurant and never was! Johanns hasn't seen remodeling since it was built. It's vinyl tablecloths and smells musty. We actually left without eating due to the unusual odor.

Johann's serves a fabulous (half-pound) crab cake sandwich! The price is good, too. Johann's prices are good overall. My husband loves the rockfish and tilapia dinners and they serve a great four-piece chicken dinner for about ten bucks.
