We have made a tradition of getting our photos take each year in the film photo booth that they have. It’s $3.00 per strip, and it’s totally worth it. I am a photographer and I started in the dark room. I love that it takes...More

I love pinball and have been playing at Jillys for a long time. Good - they are open all year. Bad - some of the machines need a good cleaning to restore proper play. Soso - There are new machines available but it's been a...More

We always stop in to Jilly's during a cloudy day during our week-long OC trip. The skeeball (a dime for 9 balls) is a bargain. There's pinball, air hockey, riding games and oversized pacman and such. It's good for 30 minutes or so. The staff...More

As expected these types of game rooms are money grabbers And this one is no exception. Even though it’s expensive kids like the place. My granddaughter wanted to use a game that a claw would grab a stuffed animal. The machine costs $3.00

We enjoyed visiting this arcade each day, sometimes multiple times a day. Games for everyone, toddlers to adults. Very family-friendly; They didn't mind 2-year-old climbing on everything. Ten-cent ski ball was a blast. AC feels great on a hot day. This is a must stop!

By far my sons favorite arcade on the boardwalk. We both loved it, lots of games and $.10 SkeeBall just wish they would replace some balls. Certain SkeeBall games only had 1 ball just an extra 1 or 2 would be great. Still a great...More

Ten cent skeeball! Old fashioned pinball for 25 cents. This is the best cheap entertainment on the boardwalk.
