Reasonable prices for all of the games. Our 8 year old granddaughter loved the Skeeball and the air hockey. Helpful staff and, a nice, (but noisy) environment.

Great place that takes you back to your childhood. From bubble and air hockey to skeeball and pinball, Jilly's has it all. While being one of the last of its kind, its truly great to see them open year round, and seeing a younger generation enjoy an arcade.

We went to have the kids play games, but the adults had a great time playing the "cheap" games. Enjoyed 10 cent skee ball and 25 cent arcade games. It was a blast from the past!

We stay at the Ebb Tide Suites every year and make it a point to visit Jilly's Arcade. They still charge 25 cents for pinball and have some of the best titles. Skee-ball is just 10 cents! They've got all the games you'd want at an arcade; video, pinball, fortune tellers, air hockey, shooting games, golf & kiddie rides.

This is a great arcade to take small kids to. The arcade is clean. The staff is friendly. All the machines work great. This is a regular stop for us while in Ocean City in the Summer.

Plenty to do, no complaints, we bounce from one to the other. So much to do. Mini golf, food, people watching, plenty of benches.

I've come to ocean city a few times with my family and found this place to be very fun with old time games as well as new ones. However, my bf and I have made ocean city a yearly trip and we LOVE coming to Jilly's Arcade! 10 cents Skee Ball, pin ball machines, basketball, billiards, air hockey, guitar hero,... More

Our granddaughter is 7, and she enjoyed the little kids rides and the bigger bumper cars. The carousel is a perennial favorite, and a real bargain at only one ticket for a long ride. Everything is nice and fresh after the Hurricane Sandy cleanup
