Typical ice cream place in OC. I think it is pricey but it has become a family tradition when family is visiting to make at least one trip here. Staff is friendly enough and there is outdoor seating to enjoy your ice cream. Quint little place on the corner, always busy.

The ice cream is good. Prices are average for Ocean City. Service is average: grumpy. I know, they have to deal with tourists, but, a smile would be nice when you take my money. Sucks to be young and employed in a beach town (boo hoo). Get over it and be a little more than just courteous.

Stopped in for a waffle sundae. Just had a small one (1/4 of a waffle) and it was amazing! The ice cream is creamy and smooth, the waffle was buttery and fluffy. The only downside is that they seem to always be packed, but it's worth the wait!

We have been to Johny B Goode's many times. It is the perfect ice cream store for the family atmosphere in Ocean City. On our most recent visit the owner stopped to talk while on the patio cleaning tables. Her clients are her friends which is why this place is so special and the line is so long (but moves... More

Went here with great expectations but the servers weren't very helpful and didn't give me the correct order. A very average place that seems to concentrate on ambiance rather than product.

Walked up to the outside take out window. Waited 10 minutes for an acknowledgement. None came. Walked inside and waited another 10-15 minutes for service. While waiting in line inside the store a slew of people walk up to the take out window and they begin serving them!!!! Four people and my son and I walked out the door. Nice... More

It was fun to enjoy some karaoke one evening and a juggler/magician while enjoying some icecream sundaes but they don't make their own ice cream - it's Breyers. With fresh made waffles and hut fudge, caramel & other toppings - would have been much better with a home made ice cream. Still fun.

We ordered and paid for a 3-scoop sundae. Our order contained just one scoop of ice cream. I don't mind a one scoop sundae, but do mind paying $8 for one. Stay away.
