Wow, We have loved Browns for a long time. But we finally had a bad experience. I guess if you keep going back to one of your favorites sooner or later, Bang, the hammer drops. Going in with 8 people, some big, some small, we were placed at a small table by the bathrooms. I get it, small place, small... More

Brown's on the OC boardwalk..What a scenic, easy in & out stop for a quick breakfast! This place is a machine...Experienced veterans of the summer breakfast masses, the folks at Brown's have it down! Good food, prepared with no muss or fuss with little waiting..Even during the prime summer breakfast hours, with lines everywhere--Brown's gets it done, and done well!... More

A highlight of going to Ocean City, NJ. Browns makes the best donuts I have had by far. Nothing compares to these! My whole family goes crazy over these. They are warm, fresh, and delicious everyday. Get there early, because they go quick. Must try at the boardwalk. Favorite is the vanilla glazed!

Stopped in again with a bunch of grandkids. Even though they were short staffed as many resort areas are this time of year on the Jersey Coast, they stayed patient and friendly. Some wait staff get rattled, these ladies stayed cool. Food was good as it has always been this year. Sad to see it close for the season but... More

Our family did not dine inside here, maybe next time. We were passing by on our bikes and stopped at the takeout counter for doughnuts for the girls. They thoroughly enjoyed them as they came straight from the fryer and topped w/ glaze or powdered. Myself, not a big doughnut fan, actually scraped up the fallen scraps.

Maybe it's because you eat them on the boardwalk. Maybe it's because the sea gulls want them. I don't know, I only know that they are the best and I will miss them sorely this winter.

Had our "End of Season" breakfast and enjoyed it. Creamed Chipped Beef was perfect on Home-fries. Coffee was hot and good. Chocolate milk was delicious. Go! Don't forget to take home some donuts if you can get in line.

We visited 3 times last week. Always with a large family group of 8-10 and needing infant seating as well. We were always treated with the best attitudes and professionalism! Friendly staff who go out of their way to accommodate. The menu is simple yet full and the choices are abundant. Be sure to get there early or expect to... More
