Johnny's is a long standing Tavern in St. Helens. The food here is Tavern type fare but they do a pretty good job. You will not be overcharged for either your food or your beverages.

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the burgers here are awesome. It used to be a hang out for the Boise Mill employees, probably still is, just that there are fewer shifts running at the mill now. Extremely nice waitress who also serves as the bar tender during the day.

They used to have the best "greasy bar food around" And just the bar vibe in general. They have pool tables & poker machines. The mushrooms were to die for! They changed the recipe. Good for the bar loving folks.

I eat here for lunch because dinner is just too busy. They have good burgers and tots (lots of glorious tots) at a very reasonable price. As we have found the pool tables are usually open and at a decent price.

The music on the jukebox was obnoxious, the crowd was quite a young crowd, very obnoxious and made us feel very out of place and unwelcomed. Next time I come to St. Helens I will... More

Johnny's Tavern in St. Helens has the best burgers in town. Their menu includes other items as well that are very good including a fish burger. Their onion rings are a good side to go along with your meal and being smoke-free, makes your experience that much more enjoyable. This is a small tavern so don't expect a quiet dinner.... More
