A local favorite, John G’s is an iconic breakfast restaurant and a superb place for a delicious lunch. We have been enjoying this landmark eatery for over 25 years and the same great food, and excellent service as it ever has been. Their consistency over...the years has remained with the new ownership in recent times. So glad they are continuing the tradition of fine dining with family ambiance! Our visit today impressed us even more with their adherence to health protocols to combat COVID and keep their patrons and staff safe!More

The food was ok. The waitress was very defensive and the person in charge doesn't know how to talk to customers, practically blaming us for being hungry and impatient

Last year I wrote a less than stellar review in large part due to their not taking credit cards and average service. This year our experience was VERY different. In addition to taking CC, we’ve been served twice by Teresa and overall had a great...experience. Kudos!!More

Although I preferred the location on the beach, the quality and service still intact! We ate from breakfast menu on a beautiful day and took advantage of outdoor seating.

As always, there'll be a wait during high season, but the fried fish sandwich or platter will more than satisfy you. Not fancy, but a great deal!

Recently enjoyed my favorite Breakfast Entre. Delicious as always. The new owners are doing a great job keeping this restaurant as it was before. Wait staff is friendly & accommodating as always Definitely a place to visit for breakfast or lunch.

My wife and I went there today all was well except the coleslaw we have always loved John G's coleslaw today it was inedible. It seemed to have no dressing, it was completely tasteless and we both took one bite and left the rest. You...always know there will be changes with new owners but if it isn't broke don't fix it.More
