Just had my first John G’s experience and it was great! The staff was extremely welcoming, friendly, and attentive. I got the Novo Bagel Platter with a pumpernickel bagel (love that they have these, my favorite) and my boyfriend got the Eggs Benedict with smoked...salmon, he practically licked the plate. Would highly recommend.More

Back to John G’s for brunch with my wife and son… The menu has changed a bit and we were pleasantly surprised. Prices were up a bit, as you can expect… but still worth every penny. Actually we noticed some nice upgrades… We had the...eggs Benedict’s w/lox, the Nova bagel platter, and my son the pancakes, and it was all delicious. We will be back to try it all…More

Went for breakfast and the French toast did not look like the pictures posted on website. We had been coming to John G since John himself ran it. French toast #1 was served cold and not nearly as good as it used to be. Corned...beef hash looked like home fries ( not like they used to in small crock). Service was poor to fair. Waitress was eating while we were waiting for our complete order. Won’t run back-More

So sad . Was one of our favorites for many years . Now prices have surged beyond reasonable , many favorite items have been removed . It’s lost its charm and special feeling the restaurant had when run by the prior owners . Our last...visit !More

John Gs has been a part of our dining for over 30 years Sad to report that so much has changed. Some of the popular staples, such as the pasta primavera are no longer on The menu But that’s not the biggest problem, if you...look at the menu, which is sorely Out of date, the prices have almost doubled. We were shocked when we saw that. And on such items as the fish platter with fruit, the fruit serving is pathetic. In the past the fruit portion was quite large…1/2 a banana, full slice of melon, Pineapple and so on.Now it is just a small bowl of chopped fruit. We will more than likely not returnMore

My favorite breakfast place. Mother’s Day tradition every year for early breakfast. Well with the sale also went the class, the roses on Mother’s Day and sadly the good food. Their signature Eggs Benedict, gone. Sadly probably my last visit. The magic, taste, presentation, class...and elegance left with the founders.More

Excellent place to go for breakfast. There are a variety of options to chose from for your first meal of the day. I must say it will be your last meal of the day as portions are generous and the food satisfying. You will not...be hungry for a very long time after enjoying a meal here. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was fresh and prepared well. We were not rushed with our meal. We came for a late breakfast and we were eating when people were ordering lunch. Their plates coming from the kitchen looked amazing. We will return for a lunch soon. There is plenty of parking.More

The restaurant opens at 8 am. We arrived around 7:45 and there was already a line. We got seated as soon as it opened. My father had their amazing French toast. My mom and I both had the 2 egg breakfast. The portions are very...large. The food came out hot and fast. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. I miss the beachfront location but the food is the draw now.More

Went on friends recommendation and unfortunately found the food just average. The corn beef hash and french toast were ok but liked the hash browns. The service was slow but we noticed the waitress had a lot of tables and was constantly on the go....We were told it was on the beach but looks like they moved into the strip mall.More

We keep trying to like this place. Most recently, the food was ok, but the service really lacked. It seems after it moved from the beach to this non-descript strip mall, the ambiance has really suffered. Our waitress was attentive until the food was served...- then was nowhere to be found. Even to pay - I had to take the check and my credit card and hunt her down. Also, be advised, the road leading to this restaurant is EXTREMELY busy, backed up, clogged, and generally in gridlock most of the time. If you really want to go, do it on Monday-Thurs lunch.More

I used to love this place, I live in Wellington and I used to drive over there just for the amazing quality of breakfast, today after so long we decided to go I just couldn’t wait for getting my delicious Greek omelette with the hash...browns and order Hollandaise sauce, what I got was soooo different, my eggs were overcooked, taste not good, the sauce terrible, and immediately notice something wrong and not the same at all, later I found out that they are new owners, it is really sad that the new people change completely the quality and the way it used to be, we are not coming back again, so sad!More
