Johnny Brenda's very ambiance would elicit a rapt smile from you as soon as you enter this restaurant-bar; it's that cheerful! And while the decor is pretty zippy, you will be glad to find a balcony extending from the room, where the bands perform. Fresh and tasty food, especially Mediterranean, is accompanied by good music and superb beers. While there is a good collection of wines and liquors here, Johnny totally dotes on its cask-conditioned brews.
