We went there with some friends. It didn't take us long to be seated on a Sunday night, ( group of five). Two had the Prime Rib, both were done at the requested temperature. The Seafood Linguine is not only delicious but it is more a two person serving. The Sunday special, Roast Beef was very tender, flavorful, ample portion... More

Stopped in here after an event @ the Tacoma Dome. Literally, was the first people out of the parking garage so decided to give Johnny's Dock a try. Figured they might be packed but we beat the rush by about 15 minutes (this is 7:45 in the evening) Grabbed a table in the bar and the server was there immediately... More

Really enjoyed the seating with the view. Our server was super speedy and never once rolled her eyes with all of our complicated orders. The clam chowder was awesome and everyone else loved their food. The reason it's getting a 4 instead of a 5 is that an accident help up two in our party and they wouldn't seat us... More

Group of friends had dinner. Food overall was okay and just barely warm, definitely not hot..... Dining areas, bar, bathrooms, and even the lobby areas are dirty. As expensive as this restaurant is, you would think that they could at least clean once in a while......

Had chowder and the Dungeness Crab sandwich. It was served open faced with melted cheese on top. Realty tasty! The service was very good. And the view of the glass museum and the old part of downtown Tacoma is pretty special. I've been using Johnny's Dock seasoning for many years. It's still a treat to go here.

Some friends brought me here for lunch while I was visiting. This is one of those places that you can tell that the locals love and is slightly off the beaten path. I ordered the Dungeness crab and shrimp omelet. This omelet was huge and filled with all kinds of crab meat and shrimp. I would have preferred to have... More

Everything is okay. Food never is very hot, only warm. Happy Hour is your best bet. Staff is friendly. Great views. Been coming here for 40 years, wish they would update it. Same old. Bathrooms are like using an AMPM, Always dirty, smell and creepy. The entire restaurant definately needs a thorough cleaning and updating.

Returned for our annual dinner here. Service was very good once one of the wait persons finally came to our table. The one we should have had never showed. Good food although we feel it isn't what it use to be several years back. Still, we had a great dinner before we went to a musical at the Tacoma Musical... More
