Jill, the tall woman, isn't the owners wife. She is the bar manger. The owner is married to a tall blonde named Shannon I think. the owner and his wife use to only come in on special occasions. I don't think they show their faces in there too much anymore.
As for the card reader. Apparently it didn't work, there a lot of underage drinkers in there all the time. I never saw the point in having it to begin with. They would pick and choose who they swiped.

We try not to get involved with the opinions expressed through this forum, but in this circumstance we feel we must finally address some of the opinions being expressed. The comments expressed from chrome dome are of great concern as we do not try to run our business in the manner of which chrome dome is speaking. The I.d. scanner was put into place as a means to protect our license. We do not use customer information that goes into that scanner for any other purpose. It is dumped regularly so as to protect individuals identities. As for chrome domes comments regarding staff pushing drinks on customers and "chasing customers around" to purchase drinks, that is not a practice Johnny or I would encourage. That behavior was not done by myself,(johnny's wife) as I do not go out on the floor to sell drinks. I am sorry if this occurred and will speak with my staff regarding such practices.
In response to all other comments, Johnny and I welcome any complaints and appreciate constructive feedback. I can say from experience in this business you cannot keep everyone happy all the time, but we do want you to be happy, have a good time and enjoy yourself while you are at Johnny's.
I personally would welcome you to contact me at the bar with your complaints which should include the staff name, what happened and when and any other information you can provide that would assist me in resolving the problem. We want to improve and keep your business not lose your business. The bar phone number is listed in the phone book or you can contact 411. We want Johnny's booming again not dooming. Johnny and I do come in from time to time and our picture is on the wall back by the office and beside the kitchen door if you are confused about who we are.
I invite you to contact me, Shannan so that we can regain your business and keep you coming back.
You can also contact me on facebook. Also like Johnny's on facebook and Msg me there as well. Constructive feedback appreciated.
Bands are coming in the fall. Check our facebook page for info.

The main issue that seems to be everyone's issue is how Jill treats people. I have seen First hand how she treats people. Her attitude is why people don't go in. I never had a problem with her personally. I think the job just went to her head. My opinion is the bar just needs a face lift with employees. Get some fresh faces with better customer service skills. People want the days of not being able to get in the front doors cuz it was packed. There were times I couldn't even move on the dance floor. Johnny's was an awesome place, I was there every weekend, didn't want to be any where else. We would come in for football games, corn hole just about everything but once that evilness started coming out in Jill it wasn't worth it. If you took a poll of Jackson Id say 85% would say get rid of Jill.
If the atmosphere would be better you would have less fighting which means the police wouldn't be posted by the door. I understand police want safety but it has gotten out of hand. Easy tickets, maybe.
People are at will employees, fire em get new people. That's probably the best bet to get business booming again. I hight doubt just giving everyone a pep talk will work due to behind owners back they will still do as they please.
Bring Johnny's back to life!!

Jill runs the place like a manager should. She just does not put up with the bullshit like some bars in town do.People are going by what a few people think of her and not actually getting to know her. I am sure Jhonny and Shannon know what they are doing!

I do know her very well thank you. It's nothing personal against her. She is a great bartender yes, but. It at the people side of the business. Stop and ask anyone and they will tell you it's how the place is managed. Every complaint is about how Jill treats people. Bar patrons still deserve respect by the employees. If it wasn't for the customers no one would have a job. But maybe that's why business is at a loss right now. As bar owners they need to step in an ask people what's going on. I know and have seen first hand how things are done in there. First off you don't play just music Jill likes. You play what the crowd wants. You bring in bands that will brig the crowd not just friends. Get a DJ who will do a good job, not one of your friends. When something happens as in a fight or whatever get both out not the one ya don't like. You don't run a place based on your friends. You run it based on customers wants, they're the ones paying the bucks.

there is no reason, at all, to scan IDs. liquor agents dont bother with fake IDs, as they want to catch people knowingly serving the underaged or after hours. also, i am fairly certain thats entrapment.

the wide scale harvesting of personal information was not for reasons of enforcement. this exact method is used in larger areas for the purpose i am talking about: identity theft and selling information to advertisers and etc.

skimmers arent free, so i cannot see how anyone would think that youre spending hundreds of dollars on one, just to better comply with regulations you had no trouble with for years. it makes no sense at all.

also, the skimming and the pushy manager at once? come on: this is clearly for cash.

Entrapment doesn't exist anymore. Also I have worked in a restaurant and liquor agents do send in people With fake id's.
