“Perfect for any occasion, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse the ideal spot to enjoy a great meal served with a side of entertaining service,” said Whalen. “Johnny’s features an approachable and affordable menu, showcasing timeless dishes with a contemporary upgrade. For me, Johnny’s is more than just your average steakhouse, it’s a place where cell phones take a back seat to conversation and a good time never goes out of style. We look forward to Johnny’s integrating itself in the community and becoming a staple dining choice for both residents and guests of the hotel.”

Born out of Iowan legends, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse pays tribute to the concepts fostered by Iowa icons John Stamatelos, the infamous bootlegger, and Johnny Compiano, a chef known for the iconic Steak de Burgo. Now brought into a contemporary age, Johnny’s currently hosts 13 locations across nine states. The brand continues to expand, with development plans to award 24 total units by 2020, targeting contiguous markets out of the Midwest.
