My honey and I went there for our 51 anniversary and it was liking stepping back in time, it's one of the first restaurants we every went to, it's old and outdated but that is what makes it special, it looks just like it did back in the day when it opened in the early 60's. The food is outstanding, the drinks are great, we highly recommend it!

We have stuck with Johnny Cace's through their ups & downs since 1985. When Mr. Cace Sr passed, the restaurant went way down. Then, it picked up. When Gerard Cace passed, it went down again. It seems to be on it's way back up again. When restaurant was "down", food and service were not great. When it's back "up", food & service are great. Restaurant is a wonderful place for a quiet, peaceful meal. They have a kid menu. The customers do expect kids to sit & behave themselves. The fare is basically seafood & steaks, not very cajun anymore. Steaks are really good. Gumbo is wonderful. Fish dishes are great. Salad, baked potato, & cole slaw are very good also. The "toast" they service before meal (after 4PM) with the cheese spread & corn relish are superb. They have great lunches also. Burgers & club sandwiches are tasty. Not the least expensive place to eat, but it may be the most enjoyable as far as peace & quiet go.

This was our first time to eat at Johnny Cace's and we will go back whenever we are in the area again. We started with oysters on the half shell and charbroiled oysters. They were some of the freshest & largest oysters we had ever eaten! Absolutely delicious. The relish tray that they serve with all their entrees was very good. I had the Catfish Lafayette, which was superb. The service was a bit slow, especially to get our drink order, but the food made up for it!

My family has always made dinner at Johnny Cace's a priority when visiting Longview area. We were extremely disappointed to find the restaurant almost empty on a Sat. night on a holiday weekend. The wait service and management were less than attentive. Our server expressed annoyance at being assigned another table (her fourth!) and asked management to assign another server. The food was average, not worth the price. This will be our last vist, ending a family tradition of 40 years. Mr. Cace would be rolling in his grave to see what has become of the service at his beloved restaurant!
