Reviews for Johnny's Harborside

Terrible birthday dinner for my daughter. The wait staff could see that we were struggling to fine something the two children could eat yet never offered the children’s menu. We were not told that the dishes we ordered for them were spicy! Made for an impossible meal. We felt the whole time that they really did not care. Will never return nor will we recommend this restaurant to anyone.

First disappointing dinner at this lovely restaurant but a mixed experience. Positives: view, best Caesar salad ever, grilled day boat scallops yummy, and impressed by multi tasking of our efficient waitress/bartender. Negatives: dry overcooked wild king salmon which is a sin, waited forever for garlic bread and salad and then garlic bread was undercooked, and mixed veggies really only cauliflower. Maybe still coming back from Covid.

What a disgusting experience. Just the opposite of Firefish Grill (see my review). Since we could not find a parking spot on the wharf for Firefish grill we decided to try this restaurant. What a flaming bad choice. The service was terrible but that may have been management's fault. Inadequate staffing. There were only 2 servers and ours also was the bartender so it might not be her fault. It took forever to get a glass of water and forever to get our wine. I talking about full review
