This time for dinner rather than lunch. And just us as a couple. I can only recommend it as a fine choice in an area of very good choices. My wife ordered the shrimp platter and I had the tuna stake. We enjoyed both. Added to this was the dinner scene and the service, which was excellent. I should mention... More

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
