About Us
John's Family Diner was established in 1974 by John Hatoum and his family with the goal of creating a comfortable environment where people could enjoy good home cooked meals at reasonable prices.

Over the years John's haw always tried to adapt to the needs customers by adjusting menus and always trying to make the restaurant a pleasant place for customers to spend part of their day. While some things have been taken away and some things added our goal of ensuring our customers enjoy their visit will always remain the same.

John's has been a fixture on Wellington St in Ottawa since 1974 with its original location being a few blocks east of the existing location at Wellington St and Granville.

Although John retired in 2011, the restaurant is in the hands of John's two capable son's Tony and Peter, both who have been working actively in the restaurant for years. Tony and Peter are both planning on continuing the legacy started by their father and serving their friends, customers and community for many years to come.
