Face it, you’re really here for the donuts. Our favorites are the vanilla and the cinnamon ones. We’ve had breakfast here a few times over the years and thankfully it hasn’t changed much. In season you’ll find that parking and just getting a seat is a challenge. Every time that we’ve been to Brown’s there’s been a line outside for... More

My wife wanted to share one of her childhood memories of going to Brown's for a donut. I have to say, they did not disappoint. We all started with one cinnamon donut each and it was warm, fresh and delicious. The donut should have been enough but because we're happy fat people with no direct DNA relationship with the millions... More

My husband and I enjoyed cheesesteaks & fries on a hot beach day. It was great to get in out of the sun. Both service and food were good.

Met friends for breakfast and couldn't have picked a better place. We were quickly seated and served coffee. They have an extensive menu with plenty of choices to please everyone. We all enjoyed our breakfast and finished off the meal with their famous doughnuts. Highly recommend Brown's to anyone who is visiting Ocean City, New Jersey.

In my world cheese steak sandwiches are either good or not good...there is no in-between. Brown's uses the perfect bread, the fried onions are done to perfection, and you'll need a fork because with the amount of steak they put in some of it will definitely fall into your plate.

We ride our bikes down the boardwalk to Brown's every year. We go only for the doughnuts, and have never eaten inside. A dozen served with 2 coffees costs us just under $14. There tends to be a small line at the window when we arrive just after 8 AM, but it moves quickly. I like the old-fashioned feel of... More

Yearly tradition to come get donuts or breakfast while in O.C. Best warm freshly made donuts. If taking donuts to go expect a huge line. If waiting for a table expect to wait. But worth it. I have never ordered anything other than donuts myself but my one son and husband have and have enjoyed the huge servings. Can't wait... More

I went here with my family after a nice bike ride. The first problem, as noted by others, was the small booth size. I slammed my knee into the table's angled support. The staff was agreeable to network members of my party's order of off-menu tuna melts (ask for grilled cheese+tuna). Food came relatively quickly but after we got/paid the... More

Right on the Boardwalk at St Charles Place in Ocean City, New Jersey, this restaurant is rightfully-so well known for their fresh home-made donuts. Coming in a variety of about 6 different kinds, they are warm and absolutely delicious. I did not eat in the restaurant but the huge crowd waiting outside tells me it must be as wonderful as... More
