Johnnie's is a collection of memories for all. Personally autographed pictures and genuine memorabilia of your favorite movie stars, politicians, athletes and musicians. Casual, upscale dining in a great location. Set on the side of the "Old West End" just blocks away from North Station, the TD Bank North Garden, historic Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. The decor consists of a combination of light and dark woods, copper, brass and luxurious leather with huge floor to ceiling windows that you must see to appreciate. The menu consists of contemporary American classics with various, multi-ethnic influences. We open at 5pm every Tuesday through Saturday for dinner,as well as our famous Reggae brunch from 11am to 4pm on Sundays. We are also open Mondays with Garden events and we do open early for afternoon games and concerts. For reservations of groups larger than 6, please call to check for availability.

Great place to go before a game at the garden. Great sports crowd and sports vibe. We ordered wings as an appetizers they were very good but you only got a few, very small quantity. I got a salad and it was good. The others got grilled chicken sandwiches And thwy were good. Best reason to go is really for convienece to the garden food is what you would expect from a sports bar-good, not great. Nice staff!

Short ribs are really good. So is the buffalo chicken dip. The service is what sets Johnie’s above the rest.

So many things to love about Johnnie’s, food, drinks, but top is that the servers really hustle which makes all the difference when you’re trying to get over to the Garden on time.

Go to place when going to Celtics game. Great food, good atmosphere with bar and TVs but not crazy crowded. The fact that they take reservations is key as opposed to the others around the garden.

West End Johnnie's served the hottest food I have received at a restaurant in a very long time. Even with a pregame crowd, the service and food were outstanding. I could not say enough about my experience at West End Johnnie's.

The service and overall look of the restaurant was great, perfect for before a concert. We were a group of 3 adults and 5 children so they put is in a semi-private room, the girls felt so special it was perfect. The food wasn't as outstanding as I was anticipating, but it was still very good. Close to the Garden, great spot to go before catching a show or a game.

Stopped for a bite to eat before a concert at the TD garden. We were seated right away with reservations. Staff was welcoming and friendly. Service was paced well. We both had the French onion soup. Very tasty but one of the most expensive I’ve had in a while. The lobster Mac and cheese was good but lacked a decent amount of lobster. For the price, more lobster would have been expected. My sister had a burger and she said it was yummy. We split the lemon creme brûlée. That was just the right amount of sweet. Overall very good experience. We already plan to return for our next concert!

My husband and I went before a game for dinner on a Tuesday. Although the location was good and the restaurant is adorable the food was just ok. We had high expectations after the French onion because it was phenomenal but our dinners came out before we even finished our soup and were not as good. My husband ordered medium rare steak tips that came out well done and my pasta had a flavorful sauce but the gnocchi was over cooked and a bit chewy. We probably won’t go back if we are in the area again.

Recently had dinner before a show at the Garden. We were lucky enough to have a reservation on a busy night. We were seated promptly and our waiter came over to see us within a minute. Our drinks were great and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the French Onion Soup. Delicious! We decided this will be our go-to place before events at the Garden.

We stopped in for a quick bite prior to the Rangers versus the Bruins game. It is right around the corner from the Boston Garden. The food was delivered quickly. We ordered burgers, salads, fries and everything was hot and tasty. A perfect place prior to the game. We are from NJ but traveled up to see the Rangers play the Bruins. It was fun to see all the fans wearing their hockey jerseys prior to the game. Obviously mostly Bruins fans but some Ranger fans too. We would definitely go back the next time we are in town.
