If you want a good meal, crafted cocktails and dancing all in an impressive environment, then you should go to Johnny's. Popular year-round.

When you have eaten enough seafood at the shore, try Johnny's Cafe & Bar. They serve a very good breakfast and lunch, too. The bar scene is also hopping and expansive, with TVs, but their Italian dinner choices are great - lots of food, sauce and peppers! It's a great place to meet friends and family.

Oh my G'd. I could hear myself let alone my table mates. The help was less than helpful when it can to the little things, if a food allergy is a little thing. I made a point of substituting spinach for the mashed potatoes telling her I could have no milk or cream or cheese, my normal way of communicating... More

Finally went to Johnny's after hearing so many people raving about it. I could not tell if it was an upscale restaurant, bar, casual dining establishment, tavern with music. I went on a Sunday night, this past Memorial Day weekend. We went about 9 pm and it was half empty. We sat in a lovely "half-moon" leather booth. There were... More

Saturday night my gf's and I wanted to get some drinks to some good music! The music was very danceable, however the temperature was so hot that it felt like trying to dance in a sauna! When I asked the vertically challenged owner to turn the air on.... He replied "Sure if you pay the bill!" The was the end... More

A very busy and overwhelmingly noisy place. It seems this is by design as the management augments the noise level with loud music. Impossible to have a conversation across a table. The food is just ok as is the service. It would be better to consider it as a bar rather than a restaurant. It is off my visit list... More

If you're planning to have a conversation with your tablemates, have one, but don't expect to hear what they're saying. THIS PLACE IS NOISY. But the food and service is fine. The King and Queen ordered the grilled salmon and it was just as expected - very good. We also shared the caprese salad to start and it was good... More

The staff are excellent at johnnies The Bartender Shannon is the Best . Along with Bennie the DJ on Wednesday nights and Sunday nights. The appetizers Tuna sushi, Bacon wrapped shrimp , and the lollipop lamb chops are to die for. Cannot say enough good things about this place . If you are a Sinatra Fan this is the place... More

I came here with a friend who is allergic to garlic. She told the server that she is allergic to garlic which was listed on the menu as an ingredient in the mash potatoes. The server confirmed it. Unfortunately, the entree arrived with the garlic mash potatoes. We also asked if the salmon was wild or farmed. We were told... More

Service is always amazing! Food never disappoints !! The meatball salad was delish!! Our waitress Shannon was very knowledgable - especially with the wine selection.
