They are among the best steak houses in town. The place was rather crowded but if you reserve a table in advance, you don’t have to wait long. We booked online just a couple of hours before going there. It is said that their meatballs are a must to have once you are there. However, I think it is not really special. I tried grill shrimps and my husband had T-bone. I love their rice. And you should try their dessert : cheese cake with blueberry and white chocolate. Their staff were so friendly and did a good job to make sure you were served fast and had what you need.

We celebrated my BF’s birthday here. We had a great meal. He especially loved his lamb chops. The service was perfect. We enjoyed our meal and my BF left feeling like he had had a treat. We will definitely go back.

Janko’s Steakhouse has great steaks and meatballs. Mouthwatering....a must have in Bloomington. Parking a little limited at times, but worth it.

We have enjoyed many steaks at Janko’s for over 30 years. My fav is the steak kabob. This visit I took a work colleague who will be relocating to another state.
We were both salivating at the thought of tasty red meat. We each ordered a glass of wine, a half order of their famous meatballs as an appetizer. Check. The server and staff were friendly and efficient. Check. I ordered the Gypsy steak kabob, my friend a sirloin steak. We were busy chatting and eating...at some point I realized my “medium” steak kabob was burnt, dry, with absolutely no flavor. This morning I was still picking the charred pieces out of my teeth. I asked my friend (I was buying as a treat), if her “medium” steak was burned too. As my guest, I am confident that she would have said nothing unless I spoke first. I realized she had eaten only one bite of her steak. She took the rest in a doggie bag....I assume to be discarded. Her meat, too, was burned beyond recognition.
I asked to speak w/our server. (This part is my fault). I first explained that I was paying for the meal...no problem...but had a complaint, our meat was burned. I commented that the grill person was not the regular grill chef (the grill is out in the open and in fact by our table). The grill chef that I am accustomed to seeing was MIA. And, perhaps “he is new”. The server said she would speak to “him”. She asked if she could offer a complimentary desert. I declined.
Janko’s is noisy, frankly I am unsure what our server said. I am uncomfortable complaining...not my “thing”, as I have had a friend who ALWAYS complained.....then ask for a reduced bill, and then a doggie bag. I am not that person.
Lesson learned, I paid $120 (w/tip) for a meal that was horrible. Yes, I should have complained initially...I was busy talking and the burned meat did not cross my mind until too late.
Will my husband and I go back to Janko’s again? Yes. This experience was an expensive lesson....learned too late...and...I am a major wimp.

The title says it all. You CANNOT find a better steak in town. The so-called steak houses are just not anywhere near the level here. We have been here as a family about a dozen times. I've never had a less-than-stellar steak here. It's a great place to go for special occasions. HOWEVER, they are so darn expensive. If they'd come down a little, we'd be there a lot more often. Of course, the quality so good that they fill the place anyway, so what do I know? I consider myself fairly good at the grill, but these guys are masters.
