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

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
