Contemporary American
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 ambience. The band is amazing. The band members are very friendly and make it a point to interact with customers in a very professional and friendly manner. I will definitely be going back for some Sunday reggae music and brunch.

Went here before a Bruins game. It's just outside other popular pregame restaurants be easily walkable. Menu limited but good. Steak tips very good as was burger. Cocktails (manhattans) also good. Service fast and friendly.

no germ pumps anywhere - lucky I brought a wet wipe. Need pumps on tables. Brunch food so so - not great if no live music.

Only complaint was our waiter. No personality and maybe just interested in the next table. Our party of four enjoyed our meals.

I enjoy West End Johnnie's before a Bruins or Celtics game. Its a step up from other sports bars in the area, and has better food. Steak tips are awesome.

What a great time we had at Reggae Brunch, the band was amazing, food, atmosphere, we had such a fun time.

Also, was very family friendly, the band was interacting with the kids at the tables. Really great vibe and happy people. We are definitely going to go back.

I have been to restaurant a number of times and this was the 1st time I was not satisfied with service to our table. Not enough interaction with waiter in getting drinks for table during whole time we were there. The other couple I was with it was a 1st time for them and they were not impressed unfortunately.

Having randomly selected West End Johnnie's, we landed on a gold mind regarding the food and service. Next time we attend a TD Garden event this is where we eat.

A fun place to grab a meal before a game or show. Lively but not too loud. The place was packed when we arrived but our server was great and made sure we made it to our concert in time. All of our food arrived quickly and was tasty. The lobster popcorn was good but overpriced for the amount of lobster you get. We’d return.
