Thank you Nift because if it hadn't been for you we would not have discovered Johnny's on our own. What a great neighborhood place! We will return with friends next time.

Suzanne, April 30, 2018

My friend and I enjoyed cocktails at the bar. Staff were A+ and atmosphere on a Saturday night was relaxed despite how busy the place was. Would love to check out their happy hour in the future.

one of the best meals I've had in dc!

The Wednesday Windfall deal is great! Very fun to try new dishes.

The manager was so welcoming and came over to chat when he learned we were using a Nift. I had never been to Johnny's Half Shell before but will be back frequently!

Marisa, February 21, 2018

Great food and service - we plan to return!

Laurel, February 18, 2018

Loved everything I had to eat. Oysters, shrimp and grits, and rock fish. And then the lemon crest pie. I’ll be back.

John, February 17, 2018

The food was delicious and the staff was very courteous

Vic, February 9, 2018

This place was amazing! Everyone was so friendly, the food delicious, and the atmosphere perfect to unwind after a long day. I will definitely be back here, with or without a gift certificate!

Awesome spot in the neighborhood. Hadn’t gone in before (not for any particular reason really) but will definitely go again!

Madelyn, January 30, 2018

Great food. Friendly service. Upscale decor. Highly recommend.

Michael, January 30, 2018

The calamari is marvelous!

Cynthia, January 27, 2018

This was a great opportunity, I would have never had dinner there. The place looks wonderful inside, which is hard to tell from outside. Staff is very friendly. The cocktails are delicious and prepared with care, and so was the meal.

Francoise, January 25, 2018

The gift was not the best match because I am vegan, but I took a friend who loves seafood and I was able to have a side dish.

Sabrina, January 13, 2018

This place was fantastic. We will definitely be returning, a nice neighborhood discovery!

Colin, January 12, 2018
