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

In December I decided that I would get a few friends together and try Johnny Macs, but we would soon realize this bar was a mistake. I will first start by stating the bar is a nasty mess. The decor is dated and the place itself needs a good cleaning. The manikin in the corner by the bar (all dressed... More

Always the first stop after getting off the train. Free pizza ticket with each drink - you do pay$1 for extra toppings. Good draft beer selection as well. I don't know the bartender's name, but she makes the best bloody mary on Sundays. Sunday has mimosa and bloody mary specials and you get a free omelet ticket. The omelet line... More

This is the bar that gives you street cred in Asbury Park. First off, let me just say that you get a free pizza per drink. A FREE PIZZA. Do I have to say more? Alright I will. After you eat your pizza, and drink your drink, you can find your way over to an abandoned iron oven where there's... More

I went there on Sunday with another couple and had a great time. We got there at 11:30 and had to wait for a table. The place was packed. For every drink you purchase you get a ticket for a free omelette. The omelette was good. Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's are $3.00. There are no waiters or waitresses. You go... More

If you want hepatitis or worse, this is the place to go. I imagine a health inspector has never entered this place. The "bartender" (who happens to run a bartending school lmfao) hands u a pint of beer by grasping it, full fisted, from the top. Palm in my beer. Glasses are "washed" in dirty cold sink. 20 glasses washed... More
