I have eaten there three or four times. Each time both the food and service were excellent. I am treated like a regular customer even though I have only been there a few times.

Johnny's has one of the best Happy Hours at the Jersey shore: large $6 appetizer menu, 1/2 price bottled beers, $6 wine pours, $6 martinis. We always sit at a high top for four in the window by the front bar. They always have music playing in the background, but this time it was way too loud. We asked Shannon,... More

Visited Johnny's Cafe for a local school fundraiser and had a great time. The private party was in and around the bar area with butler-ed hors d'oeuvres. Johnny's had a nice selection of various hors d'oeuvres that satisfied most. They included tuna tartare, meatballs, roasted beets and goat cheese, and my favorite - lollipop lamb chops. The waitstaff were nonstop... More

The Cosmos are the BEST on the Island. My husband &I dine at Johnny's at least twice a week. I am baffled by the negative reviews as we have NEVER had a bad meal!Breakfast is great...the home fries are delish! Try the burgers for lunch..perfection! But my favorite meal is dinner because with dinner comes William. William is Johnny's secret... More

Went to breakfast this past Sunday morning. The food was passable at best. An omelet that oozed water when it was sliced open. Really? Waitress was awful. never checked on us to see if we needed more coffee, how are things, etc. Had to track down waitress to get my bill. I could have walked out and no one would... 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.
