My problem with the food being average is my meal was $30+ Call me cheap but if I'm spending that kind of money on one entree I'd be hoping for something that would be satisfying. Not a steak that tastes like nothing but pepper.

This place is delicious, friendly, classy. John's Grill is a favorite spot for quality food and drinks in a quiet setting. Check out the paintings on the walls. Great atmosphere for a date: cozy and warm.

My husband and I enjoyed wonderful halibut here, as well as a seafood pasta with shrimp, crab, & scallops. Everything was perfectly cooked, and we loved the grilled asparagus that came as an included side item with the halibut. It looked like the bar side of the house was doing a booming business. This was a stretch for us budget-wise,... More

Had the standard utensil set up, dinner fork, salad fork, dinner knife, and soup spoon, and cloth lap napkin. I ordered the 14oz New York Steak topped with caramelized onions and Roquefort dressing. This comes with "potato du'jour and seasonal vegetables". The steak came to me perfectly cooked to my order. It tasted very good, though there were the occasionally... More

We live nearby and come here a handful of times a year. It is mostly quite good but can be hit or miss. We would come more if it was a bit less expensive. If you are looking for a more independent less corporate dining experience, come here instead of Ivar's down the hill.

Good food and nice surroundings. Unlike its competitors Ivars and Arnie's John's Grill doesn't have a view. What it does have is good food. You're not going to find deals here. Just nicely prepared steaks and seafoods. Save room for the desserts. Good selection of wines.

Intimate dinner setting with a beautiful view of the sunset. Every dish I have had is perfect. No need to go to Seattle.

Fantastic food, expertly prepared. There is nothing bad I can say about this little bistro in Old Town Mukilteo except possibly that the food is "a bit pricey". That said, it's worth every penny. Unique dishes, great flavors, cozy atmosphere...we love John's!
