Put first time to patronize this establishment. Agree with other reviews, the food was excellent. It was busy for a... Monday morning but the hostess seated us promptly. The menu had a wide variety of selections and the chicken fried steak and eggs with hash browns and sourdough was very tasty. The portions were generous and a good value relative to the price. Only down side was the length of time it took between order and food service. It was about 25 minutes and the server was off cue the entire time. Had to ask for coffee and water refills multiple times.read more

My favourite place for brunch in Rockford. A wide variety of menu items. Would recommend The Southerner with a side of... Swedish pancakes (a must!). Also, love their sourdough bread. If you go in the morning on weekends, expect a wait.read more

If you're from Rockford, you don't need to read this. If you're visiting from out of town and looking for a breakfast... spot, i am here to tell you that hands down Johnny Pamcakes makes the best pancakes in town. And they serve the pancakes with a generous portion of whipped butter. Everything else is pretty standard diner fare; it's all good. Staff is super friendly. And i appreciate that its a place in rockford where you can find all types of people from all parts of town.read more

Got in early on a Saturday morning. This place is great! Got a table right away and coffee was poured within a minute... of sitting down. Waitress was excellent, kitchen had our meal out in just a few minutes. Excellent Swedish pancakes with eggs, sausage, and bacon. Coffee cup was never empty during our entire meal. Definitely know what they're doing here!!!Thank you for a great experience to get our day started right.read more

I've been here multiple times over the years. I've never had a bad experience. The food comes out very quickly and the... wait staff are very attentive, despite being a packed house. If you want a place for a good ole American breakfast, then you won't find any other place as good as this one.read more

First time there. Fantastic service and sweet people but my corned beef hash omelette was pretty bad. Good hash browns... but the omelet was like powdered corned beef. There are better places to go and I will find them.read more

We have never had ribs from Johnny's pamcakes. We ordered them and they were very good. We got them with potato salad... which was excellent, and soup. They were out of clam chowder but the replacement soup was very good. I never order vegetable but this was definitely an exception. excellent. The green beans were so so but everything else made up for it.read more

Awesome fish with various ways to have the fish prepared. The service was friendly and quick. There was a variety of... choices to have with the fish dinner. I ordered eggs Benedict, my personal favorite, it was the very best. Highly recommend Johnny Pancakes, but warning you that you might have a long wait.read more

We eat here fairly often- great breakfasts and reasonably priced. Also really appreciate how they follow COVID-19... restrictions on indoor dining. When I saw their tents set up for outdoor dining, I smiled & thought, they care about our community. Five stars.read more

We were there for Father's Day breakfast. We had about a 15 minute wait, and most of my party was later than that.The... menu was typical of a diner but atypical swedish pancakes. (Which we did not try)The food was superb and arrived timely. My son and his GF had skillet breakfasts, grandson had pancakes and bacon. I had an omelet and pancakes. (I brought the omelet home with a side of biscuits and gravy)The service was above par. Prices very reasonable. Homey atmosphere.The decaf coffee was tasteless, I'm not sure why diners think decaf drinkers want bland coffee. (I've had some excellent decaf in diners)And the signage is almost nonexistent, which made my kids late.read more

We were seated with two seats to the next customer. Yet these people were seated with only one seat between. This was... brought to you courtesy of the man in the blue shirt. He claimed it was because of our governor. When I co fronted him about it,, he laughed and walked away. Weird how the rules only apply to some and not all.THEY GET NO MORE OF MY BUSINESS!!!!read more
