This was a nice Johnny Rockets. There was no wait. We were able to sit outside where there was a very nice view. The food was good and our waiter Ernesto was very attentive.

Not very appetizing, typical diner fare: Hotdogs, hamburgers, but it fun in a "60's" type décor. Sub-par service is to be anticipated due to the kids manning the stations, but all in all, a quick place to grab a bite.

We ate here twice. The first time was good except we were told we could sit outside and then to be told it was closed. Anyway, the server was polite and the order was correct. The second time, The server came over and waved her hands at us to give her the menus back when they were right by her.... More

We arrived just as a large crowd cleared out. Thought we would have no problem with service. All the empty tables were filthy and we kept waiting for someone to clean them (or at least one) off. We finally did most of the clearing outselves and then finally someone ran over with a soaking wet rag, left the table and... More

The hamburguers were incredibly good and the french fries were the best i've ever had. The attention was very good and the place was nice.

My dad has never been to Johnny Rocket's so I decided to take him during our January trip to Ft. Lauderdale. I have been to the Johnny Rocket's at the Destiny USA mall in Syracuse, NY and loved the food and the atmosphere. I was excited to take him "back in time". This particular J.R. looked a little worse for... More

The JR's at Sawgrass is a nice location, but service was slow. The food was good, once it arrived, but had to inhale it to make the movie time, which should have been sufficient. Value is OK, but it is a tourist trap area, right outside of the Barbie Experience and Theatre

We saw bugs crawling around and chose not to eat here. Service was extremely slow just to get a menu but thank goodness it was, that's when we saw the bugs!
