Did not take credit cards. Not adequate space -a little cramped. Food was very humdrum. Need more AC in dining area in back. Nothing special at all

While venturing into Fredonia for their annual Harvest Festival, we opted to stop here for some something to eat. The outside is quite unpretentious. It's aged appearance and oddly connected sections, causes one to try and locate the entrance, once inside, you are ushered into the black walled bar area. We quickly opted for a booth and were ushered thru... More

Nothing fancy, this place could use an update. However the food is good, largely portioned, and there are plenty of choices. We ordered the eggplant parmigiana and spaghetti and meatballs. Good sweet sauce- meatballs homemade and eggplant delicious. We brought home enough for two more meals!

Straightforward, unpretentious, good. Had the meatballs - nice. It's not gourmet but it works. Love the red vinyl booth seats. Kitschy in just the right way. The chicken tenders are pounded thin, breaded lightly, and tasty. I bet all the menu items would be tasty. Will return. Very cost effective.

The food is outstanding! The owner is charming! The prices are reasonable! BUT HOW CAN YOU BE IN BUSINESS IN 2015 AND NOT TAKE DEBIT AND CREDIT CARDS??? It baffles me that there are still one or two businesses that do not when it is so easy to do. The only cash I have is my debit card as is... More

While the rear dining area is pleasant and inviting, in my opinion, the aesthetics of the restaurant's exterior and the front dining area leave a little to be desired. Anyone taller than 6'5" (1.96 meters) is going to feel claustrophobic in both the front dining area and the restroom. The facility aside--the food and service? Absolutely no problems nor complaints.... More

Not having been to DeJohn's in about 3 years, I was pleasantly surprized recently when called there for a mini family reunion. (Lunch with Aunt, Uncle, and several cousins from different family. The noon time offerings were delightful and appropriately sized. And the cost was extremely reasonable. I was duly impressed, in that at some transition point I had been... More

This restaurant looks low-key from Main Street, but don't count it out for atmosphere and great food! Walk in the door and you'll find a grand mishmash of Italian kitsch in the dimly lit original structure, which features the bar and intimate booths. Walk through that front room to the sunroom addition in the back, and you'll enter into a... More

We had the Italian sampler plate. The plate was large and very filling. Well worth the money and the atmosphere was pleasant. I am looking for to our next visit to this family owned Fredonia treasure

Just stopped in for lunch - don't let the atmosphere fool you - the food here is GREAT. I had the Pasta fagioli and a Roast Beef on Weck and my wife had Riggatoni (sp). Both meals were to die for . Good service, great prices ....I'll go back.
