We had a fantastic dinner with a group at John Longs. The fish was likely the best we have had in a long while. The staff we're awesome and extremely friendly. John came out to visit and was a great guy. A must!

So good! Would recommend to anyone! We went here on a Sunday as part of a tour group when they are normally closed...John took time to talk to each table.
