Johnnie's On The Side

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.

"Just had dinner there for the first time and everything was good. Ordered mussels, chicken caesar salad and the arugula salad with salmon. Service was good and atmosphere was fun or an after work dinner and drinks."

"Been coming here for years pre-Bruins and pre-Celtics. Food has always been good, consistent. Service is attentive, and seems to understand that you need to get over to the Garden for the game, without having to say so. I wish they had a better beer selection, but otherwise, great place to eat when you have less than an hour, want a table, and want good food. Recommend making a reservation..."

"Love this restaurant. Great for dinner and drinks before a show at the TD Garden. The steak frites and the steak tips were delicious. We had the almond cake dessert was fabulous..one of the best I had ever had. They got the order wrong the first time and brought just ice cream, the 2nd time the raspberry on top of the cake was burnt. The manager brought us a new one and took it off the bill as well as one round of drinks. Love the atmosphere here. Not the first time dining here and it wont be the last!"

"We made a reservation for 5 just a couple days ahead of time without any hassle.
The atmosphere was energetic and fun, with live reggae music. The food was delicious and service was good considering how busy they were. My only complaint is that it was tough talking to anyone who wasn't sitting right next to you. The music could have been turned down quite a bit.
I recommend going with a group of 4 or less because you'll be seated closer to the stage and at a smaller table (everyone can sit closer to each other). It should make conversation a bit easier."

"Johnnie's Sunday Reggae Brunch just keeps getting better. The menu changes often enough to keep the food interesting. The food is consistently great. The reggae band rocks it every week. The Bloody Mary's are the best in town. Perfect way to relax on Sundays."

"They serve a great variety of brunch meals, and the eggs are always perfect. The bloody marys are tasty and sizable. The reggae band cranks out music that makes the whole place move to the beat. Some of the best musicians I've heard in Boston. The staff is courteous and efficient and always makes it a good time. Add a few palm trees and the place would seem like Montego Bay."

"Despite being shown to our table by the hostess, it took me going back to the stand after 10 mins waiting for a waitress. 5 mins after that a different hostess came to the table and asked us if we had a reservation and if we sat ourselves. It took another 5 mins for a waitress to take our drink order.
However, the food was pretty good with both the apps & entrees being timed well and were cooked to our liking.

"Went to Sunday brunch with a friend. Nice decor and good food. The live music was good but LOUD. Our waitress disappeared after she took our order and didn't come back until we had finished half our meals that someone else had delivered. She hadn't written down our order and my friend's drink was missing. She comped us the one drink, but our drinks pretty much arrived as we finished our meals. She then disappeared again until we gave our check and payment to another server. I'd go back again, but I'd ask to be seated away from the band and hope for a more attentive waitress."

"The margarita was so cloyingly sweet it was undrinkable, but our waitress happily exchanged it fir a Harpoon IPA on tap. The steak with truffle fries, ordered rare, was perfect."

"We enjoyed the food deciding on enjoying appetizers only. Even though the restaurant was not full, the service was extremely slow."
