We went to Johnny D’s for breakfast and it was great! There was a 30 min wait but that’s because we were 8 people. In Myrtle Beach, there are a lot of pancake houses but this one looks like it’s the best! But if you...are staying in the resorts by the beach, get ready to have to take a little bit of a drive, it’s a little bit of a hassle but it’s worth it! If you like eggs and pancakes, I recommend Johnny D’s! It’s a nice way to get out for a bit!More

After reading the reviews from previous guests, we had high expectations for Johnny Ds and it did not disappoint! The restaurant was clean, well-staffed, and very efficient. We were told the wait could be about 30-35 minutes, but it was only about 5 minutes! Our...server, Alex (could have been Alexis) was excellent for the whole breakfast. You could tell it was a team effort from the service staff as several folks brought our food to us (we had a party of six) hot and quickly. This type of service is a reflection of our he high expectations of ownership/management. The coffee was fresh and the waffles were fantastic. Johnny Ds is definitely on our must do list for our next Surfside visit!!More

Excellent food and service. Very busy restaurant but service was quick and wait staff was pleasant. Our family had a variety of pancakes and eggs and French toast, all good and price was reasonable. Would recommend for a pancake house for a family.

I gave this restaurant a 4 because the food experience is dependent on what you order. I ordered the chicken and waffles and I didn't care for it. The waffle was soggy and nothing special about the chicken. My husband ordered the crab benedict and...loved it. The location and service was very nice. And they have mimosas on Sunday mornings was which was great.More

This is 100% breakfast for the gods With everything tasting so fresh, and the meats taste of the highest quality. We would eat here everyday...if we lived here its that dam good!

My wife and went in for breakfast. We were seated without having to wait. Once we were seated we waited and waited and waited. While we waited we watched other people that came in after us being served. The place was not that busy but...a server never spoke to us .After waiting about 15 minutes we decided to leave. I will never go back. It is obvious the place has poor management. I can only imagine how the food tastes.More

We came in a party of 11 (5 adults 6 children). They said it would be 20 to 25 minutes. We asked to be seated separately. Then they proceeded to seat parties of 2, 2, 4, 5, and 3! They informed us we would be...seated TOGETHER! Then they said they couldn’t seat children alone. That’s fine we have 5 adults to separate between the children! We asked how long. They informed us it would be 20 minutes still! After another party of 5 came in and got seated! We left!More

I should have took pictures but I really just couldn’t believe it. Basically I ordered a pork belly Benedict and they gave me straight fat and tendon I’m not exaggerating. They also refused to cook my fiancés home style fries. I was one of the...only colored people in the entire establishment. They rushed me and my fiancé. The only thing good was the French toast and egg but you might as well go to ihop for that.More

This was one of three breakfast spots we visited while on vacation. It probably came in third for me. The place was super loud, sometimes the noise was too much and it was hard to talk across the table. The menu is very extensive. I...got the chicken biscuits and gravy. It was good, but like another commenter said, the gravy tasted "off". I'm from the Midwest, so biscuits and gravy are no stranger... And it still tasted a little off. Maybe it was the type of sausage used(it looked more pink).... However, it was edible and I ate my whole plate. The kids loved their waffles and all the customization. The staff was extremely pleasant.More
