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.

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.

I’ve been to the shiny new places at the Garden. If you want exceptional food and service, Johnnie’s is still the place to go.

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.

Thank you

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.

Excellent spot for pre-game or concert dining. Better than average pub food at slightly higher (but well worth it) prices. Service was prompt and friendly. The room is fun and appropriately casual. We will go back!

Great food, service was better than average (considering it was the night of a Bruins game). Would definitely go there again. Beer selection on tap not as vast as I would have liked, but not taking any stars away for that.

We arrived earlier then our reservation after traveling but were seated right away. Our friendly waitress came over quickly with menu’s and took our drink order. Everything from drinks,apps & meals were served quickly, however we did not feel rushed. The food was fantastic. Highly recommend the fried chicken. Chocolate cake was delicious. The space appears small but seating is spacious and the noise level is fine even when the restaurant was full. An easy walk to the TD Garden after dinner. I would definitely return here for dinner and would highly recommend it to friends.

We literally drove 3.5 hours to have brunch at West End Johnnies, and we will continue to do it any Sunday we’re able to. The food is INCREDIBLE and the music is amazing! The staff is super friendly, and did I mention how great the food is?! 10/10 recommend!

Probably one of the most inhospitable restaraunt experiences I've ever had. Like, our waitress didn't do anything "wrong." but she wasn't attentive, barely at our table, and really just seemed like she didn't want to be there. As for the food, I had the fried chicken w/ cheesy grits and gravy. The gravy and grits were pretty good, but the chicken was surprisingly bland and uninspired. I dunno, I'll give it another shot, but I wasn't bowled over first time out.

We often go here when we have tickets to the Boston Garden (TD Garden), as the service is always good and the food is deicious as well. A great spot, varied menu, good drinks, but tends to be on the noisy side.

We had a reservation for 5:30pm, right before attending a concert at the garden. We arrived early at 5:10pm and we're seated right away. This was the perfect time to go. It looked like we were one of their first customers after opening and we got our meals very quickly. We ordered an appetizer of buffalo chicken dip and it was delicious, if not a little too big of a serving. After we finished the chips that came on the side, our waitress brought out even more chips which was great to finish the app. I ordered the steak tips and a side of green beans and both of which were very tasty and fresh. My friend ordered the burger and fries and agreed that it was very good and fresh. It was starting to get quite busy by the time we were leaving around 6:30pm, so we were lucky to miss the rush. 10/10 would definitely go again next time I'm in the city!
