“Thanksgiving dinner”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

We had a very good time for Thanksgiving lunch. We arrived early and got promptly seated. Right along the water too! The food was good, a traditional Thanksgiving dinner that was served, not a buffet. Then they offered seconds! I am gluten free and they did good accommodating my needs with substituting au jus for the gravy and ice cream for the scheduled pumpkin pie. The turkey was very tasty and moist, but it could have been a little warmer. I want to go back and try their regular menu!

“Best in Tacoma”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We have been dining at Johnny's for a number of years and have yet to be disappointed. Food is consistant and appetising. A little hard to find if you aren't native to the area, unless you have your GPS available. Worth the hunt.

“Not worth the price”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The view is nice. I ordered the macadamia nut crusted sole on the recommendation of the server. It lacked flavor. Not worth the price. The service was good.

“Great seafood!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We sat out in the open patio. The view was great. We ordered Blue Cod, Clams, Mussels. All very delicious. Desert was the Blackberry Cobbler, to die for! Just loved it!
