The food, the atmosphere and the ENTERTAINMENT WAS FABULOUS!!! i DISAGREE with the negative reviews referring to the noise level....I thought everything was 100%. It is not a restaurant to go to for a rom antic dinner on a night entertainment is provided. Very festive ....hearing Benny sing and joining in! Wished I lived close by....it would be our go... More

Always consistent. Great food and good service. Happy hour from 4-6 is a great value with incredible choices. Music is very good but very loud. You have to scream to hear each other.

We eat here once or twice a season. The food is consistently good. Service also good. Reasonable value for a nice restaurant in a resort area. The tables are close and you have to speak loudly to overcome the noise. Great for friends and family. Moderately priced.

July 23 we had dinner at Johnny's. The food was good but the restaurant was to loud. The Frank Sinatra medley was to loud as a result people were yelling above the music. There was no ambience. I could not hear the other persons at my table. I also thought it was overpriced.

Been here a few time but food only fair. My friends like it but I find it to be only fair and overpriced. I like Johnny cheesesteak place next door to be better.

We went to Johnny's Cafe and Bar because our server from the Atlantic City Bar and Grill told us about it. She was correct; it was great. The restaurant is divided into 2 sections, with a retro decor. Excellent coffee and food, eggs over easy, scrambled eggs, lox, bagels, cream cheese, toast, potatoes, and fresh fruit. They happily subbed fresh... More

The bar at Johnny's is a great place to spend a Wednesday night! The bar tenders are friendly, cordial and set a mood of welcome to the casually elegant place. The food is simply delicious and all the variety is fun to sample. There are lots of nice people to chat up and the Sinatra style music is pleasant to... More

Just got back from Johnny's where the shrimp, scallops and crab meat special had no crab meat. The waiter, who never listened to us from the get go, grabbed my plate without listening. I told him to leave my plate and he ran away with it. I called Johnny over who called me drunk and threatened to throw me out... More
