As new "year rounders" in Ocean City, my husband and I are still exploring off-island bars/restaurants. After a few drinks at Tomatoes, we popped into Johnny's for some appetizers and drinks. We are very glad we did. The bartender at the front bar was super friendly and made us feel really welcome. The food we ordered was good and Johnny... More

Spent part of the afternoon visiting Lucy the Elephant and was recommended to have lunch here at Johnny's Cafe. Wonderful eats. Great value for the quality. Impeccable service. I ordered the Oriental salad and my date ordered the seared Sushi grade tuna. We also split an order of Calamari. Had a delightful time. Will most certainly return.

My wife and I went there during the #50bitesAC promotion/charity event. We had the spaghetti. It was very good. Nice thick sauce. Pasta cooked al-drente. Would recommend.

We were two couples having lunch at Johnny's. We had been there years ago and were now accompanied by a couple visiting from New York City. We were pleased at how it had changed in its present location. The atmosphere is pleasant, the service was prompt and attentive. Our luncheon sandwiches were well prepared and tasty. We would recommend it... More

This was second or third time we grabbed breakfast at Johnny's and it does not disappoint. My husband says it's the best eggs benedict ever, while I enjoyed lovely French toast with delicious home fried potatoes. Location is convenient and atmosphere posh while providing friendly service.

Plan on not being seated at the time of reservation. There is a nice bar to wait the additional 15-30 minutes. Can't ever go wrong with the veal chop here. Little pricey, but worth it.

We went for brunch to celebrate my mothers birthday. We were a party of 8. The food was very good but our service was sub par. Our waitress took forever and when our food arrived, she never once checked back to see if our meals came out okay. We needed water refills and had to hunt down a bus boy... More

Went to breakfast with family and friends. Not much went right. Waited 45 minutes before waiter took drink order. Then another 15 minutes to get our drinks which were not correct when they arrived. We had to wait again to place food order and then not everyone got their meal at the same time and 2 people did not get... More

We have only had dinner here before but went for breakfast last week and I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable everything was while still getting great quality food in a nicer restaurant. Omelettes and lox and bagels dishes were excellent. Our new go to place for breakfast.
