Saturday night before the Bruins game. Seated immediately at our 5pm reservation. The menu is quite varied with something for everyone. Wonderful beer selection. Johnnie's meatballs were very tasty with a good marinara sauce. Entrees were good. The chicken and pineapple sandwich was quite tasty. I was disappointed with the Johnnie's burger. It was pretty tasteless and I got it medium rare which after a minute made it look and feel and taste like it was from Lion's Choice. We were off to the game so no dessert or coffee. It is 3 blocks from the TD Garden so very convenient with a parking garage right across the street. For the convenience and the ambiance it was well worth it. I would not hesitate to go back.

My husband and I went to West End Johnnie's before a Celtics game, and really enjoyed our meals. His Lobster Mac n Cheese was excellent, and my salad with shrimp was really tasty. I have some dietary restrictions, so eating out can be a bit of a challenge but our server went over and above to make it work for me.

Ideal pre-game dining and sports viewing spot. Had Johnnie's Famous Meatballs for a yummy appetizer as well as the Arugula salad w/ Grilled Chicken for my main dish. Kids menu had a great selection as well (our child ordered Mac N Cheese + fries). Would recommend this as a hangout pretty much anytime.

Amazing brunch! The live music makes the atmosphere a place we want to be on a Sunday morning. The bloody mary's are amazing, molasses wings out of this world and you can't go wrong with pretty much any item on the menu. This place does not disappoint! The service is good, too. Not too overbearing, but the come over often enough to make sure your drink is full!

Sunday reggae brunch at Johnnie's is a great time. The reggae band is always entertaining and engaging. Our meals (steak frites and classic eggs benedict) were delicious and satisfying. Especially with the band, there's definitely a feel-good atmosphere at brunch. Reservations are definitely needed though, as this is a popular Sunday brunch spot.

Meatballs, which had been a favorite, were very disappointing. They were over-firm and tasteless. Otherwise, all other food was really great.

We had an excellent experience at West End Johnnies. Our table was right next to the stage; great for the music enjoyment, hard to converse with who you’re there with. The band was so good at the Reggae Brunch. Our meals were incredible. Meals thoroughly enjoyed at our table were steak and eggs, the breakfast skillet and their fluffernutter french toast. We will definitely be returning for more delicious food and fun atmosphere.

We were a half hour late for our reservation (due to traffic), but we called and they held our table for us. Food & service were fantastic, price very reasonable, and we made it to the Celtics game with time to spare. Johnnie's was a find!

ITs a nice place. But the service is not so good. I waited for over 1 hour for food. Some people who arrived after us ate and left before we were able to get our food. And was party of 2 just like us.

We were visiting before a Boston Bruins game. We walked in and were one of the first tables being seated for the night. First impression was great bar - cool hangout - large windows with good light and very clean. We had heard about the wings being good so decided to try both flavors they served. Both were very good. We also got the fried calamari which has pieces of fried pickle in it that were delicious. Drinks were good but typical city pricing. We would definitely check out again.

The Manager, Dana, went ABOVE and beyond for our group of 21. Kids sat in their own area (with us close by to supervise) and he had set up the living room area for the nine adults. Our server, Eddie, was FANTASTIC. We never had to wait and he was attentive despite not only having our large group but several other tables. The drinks were delicious (I had the honey margarita and several friends were raving about the Pink Panther). The food was excellent. We started with the guac (which was some of the best guac that I have ever had). My husband had recommended this place as he goes there with his friends before a Celtics game. West End Johnnie's did not disappoint. Highly recommend it.
