Great Breakfast

Johnny's does breakfast right...and very affordable. Preferred breakfast to lunch here. But Dinner is good also. Have had the lobster here and it was quite good. But try and get here for breakfast at least 4 or 5 times during the summer.

We are always looking for good food at reasonable prices, and Johnny's Sunset Menu really hits the mark. We stopped in for an early dinner and cocktails and we were very well served by Dinar. We had the chicken pot pie, which is wonderful, soup and dessert for a very reasonable prix fixe. It was delicious. I highly recommend. The... More

The food is amazing. Delicious! The service was great. Its not somewhere to eat in a rush since the food was all cooked to order. It was well worth the wait.

I eat here at least once a week. Just consistently good. Never a bad meal. Desserts are to die for. Good all around restaurant with a good bar and music almost every night.

This restaurant is now my favorite place to eat. We were greeted and escorted to our table and our server,Sarah, was there ready to take our drink order. The restaurant was festively decorated for the Halloween season. From our salads to our dinners everything was delicious. I would highly recommend this establishment.

The weird saxophone elevator music could use an update for sure. Pretty inside but definitely aimed at an older crowd. Any alcohol available you can think of except beer. I was a little put off when people started clearing tables and mopping floors ahead of their 3pm close time. Especially when a waitress who was collecting salt and pepper shakers... More

The food is good but very expensive. Our waitress was very nice and did a good job. She rattled off at least a dozen specials without prices. I asked how much a couple of them were and both were $49. I guess they hope patrons just order specials without asking prices. I am not a cheapskate, but I am not... More

We decided to use our gift certificate to Johnny's Cafe while seated on the Atlantic City boardwalk with our granddaughter. On our arrival, we found out that Johnny's has no children's menu. Since our 7 1/2 year old granddaughter loves salad with raspberry vinegrette, we placed an order for a salad entree. My spouse & I had steak entrees. Our... More
