Generated summary (experimental)

By blending a bit of the old with the new, owner and self-taught chef Shannon Gober has transformed this Downtown Birmingham landmark into John's City Diner.
While the restaurant still maintains much of the charm from the past, the decor and menu have undergone a face-lift.
We use only locally grown or Organic produce.
Our bar features 12 local craft beers on draft, 15 wines by the glass and hand crafted cocktails using the most honest ingredients available.
Follow us on social media to find out about our specials that evening and make your reservation NOW.
In the heart of Downtown Birmingham, John’s City Diner welcomes parties for all occasions.
We have been creating special events in the restaurant since 2004.
We have a number of sample menus (included in the banquet menu below) in a range of budgets.
These party menus will be exquisite for most events and have been successful in the past with overwhelming response from our guests.
Our goal at John’s City Diner is to make your special event perfect for you.
We offer customized menus for weddings, office parties, birthdays or any other special event.
We love to do carving stations with grass-fed beef tenderloin for upscale events or your guests can enjoy the best Chicken & Waffles in the South for more casual occasions.
We promise to help you host the most memorable event.
Let us do the work, you enjoy!
We often use one side of the main dining room to create semi-private events that would like to have close access to the bar.
This dining room is completely open to the rest of the restaurant but will exclusively be used by your party.
