Fun place and FREE food!

My husband and I went here for the first time for a few drinks and we also heard about the free pizza. We went on a sunday so we also got free omeletes before 2:30. The only thing that was a little annoying was having to pay for water! I get that they don't make any money on food but... read more

When I walked in, I was instantly reminded of the bars in Dublin. Charming atmosphere, $3.00 drafts, and a free pizza to boot! Admittedly, the pizza was not all that great, but they allow you to bring your own snacks. There is a very small seating area for 8-10 people if you don't like to sit at the bar. The... More

Very eclectic place, like a flea market bar, except they don't sell any of the stuff display throughout. Fun place to hang out with friends for a few drinks.

Johnny Mac's is a place where people from all walks of life go. Johnnys has punks, to suits. Johnny's has a friendly bar staff, big bars, a new outside patio area coming and cool little things that make this bar popular. Johnnys has candy trays, Skee Ball, good music and other cool stuff that keep people coming back. If you... More

Johnny Mac's is always a good choice if you are looking to be were the crowd is at. Pro's: Johnny Mac's has a great beer selection and is always high energy inside. It is connected to what seems to be an expanding local Johnny Mac empire, a restaurant and another bar and beer garden. Con's: (For me) It is often... More

Each time I've been here the service could definitely be improved on. It's a popular place and I understand it gets busy, but I've been there on much slower nights and had the same issues with not getting served. Also, when I pay for a mixed drink I expect there to be a hint of the taste of alcohol in... More

I've been to Johnny Mac's a number of times over the years and have enjoyed the reasonably priced drinks and the unfortunately increasing quarter-at-time fun at the skee-ball games in the down stairs portion. I don't mind skee-ball went up as others complained. It's just the same price as the boardwalk. Although if it were to go back to 50... More

Well, if I start off a review saying that a place is 'ok for a beer' than that let's you know where I am going. It is ok for a beer - period. Do you want a beer? They have them. I went here with a few friends and was immediately put off by the female bartender that messed up... More
