Lunch

This is a very old restaurant; dated, but has very good food. Chowder was very good, as were the dungeous crab sandwiches and salads. Service was ok, location on the water was good.....probably recommend!

Macadamia crusted sole! Yum! My wife and I love this place with fresh food and great view. It's on the other side of the waterway so we get sun on the deck all day!

Everything I said early still holds for Johnny's; however, this time the Prime Rib I ordered was chewy and not very flavorful. Piece looked like it was left over. I asked for a baked potato as a substitute for what was offered and was informed I would have to pay extra. No big deal, but the message was delivered like... More

A seafood restaurant right in the water is so inviting. We were seated on the window side facing the marina. It was very nice. The added delight of a table side magician was fun! We ordered fresh halibut with prawns. It was fresh and a good portion size. Beers were enjoyed by others in my party. The "burnt cream" dessert... More

I've eaten at lots of similar places in San Francisco, Monterey, etc. so was prepared to judge. I didn't have to. The service was great, the drinks (a rusty nail & a gin & tonic) were perfect. The food was excellent as you would expect in a great seafood area, And the view across to the Glass Museum and Union... More

Johnny's has a beautiful dinning room, with a great harbor view from every table. The staff is excellent. They took very good care of us, and were super friendly. We really felt welcome. There is a lot of outstanding seafood in the Puget Sound area, and by comparison Johnny's was a little mediocre, not bad, just not outstanding. We were... More

My office has lunch at Johhny's several times a year. The service and food is great and on a sunny day the outdoor tables overlook the marina. I highly recommend the clam chowder with a splash of sherry (wine) in it and pepper.

I love coming to Johnny's. My husband and I live in another state but have a group of close friends in this area. At least once a year, for the last 14 years we meet here for dinner. Melanie usually takes care of our big group. Melanie is absolutely wonderful! Everyone has great meals, and it's so pretty to look... More

This one of my favorite place to go year around. Better in the summer because of the view of all the boats. But the food is great. Nice people the work there. Very friendly.

It was a very nice place. The service was great this evening. I had the halibut fish & chips & they were very greasy. I was surprised the food wasn't very good. Not sure if we will go back there & try it again?
