We have been here several times and like both the food and always enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant. The last time we ate at Johnny's was on NYE...and because of the festivities, we did not expect too much, however we were pleasantly surprised! The service was excellent, food was good, as in our past visits (consistent) and we did... More

Wow! What a find! In an effort to support "Johnnie's" for sponsoring youth a basketball team in a Margate co-ed league, we stopped in on a frigid Saturday morning. To our great surprise and delight--we found a beautiful restaurant, elegantly decorated, clean, friendly with an experienced staff and great food! Reasonably priced, our experience could not have been better (maybe... More

I came here with a bunch of girlfriends recently and had an ok time. The patrons are more on the wealthy and older side (two things I am not hehe). The drinks were amazing and our bartender was out this world great. I ordered some pasta dish and it was incredibly bland. I'm talking, no amount of salt could help... More

We tried Johnny's Cafe after a recommendation from a friend, and we were warmly greeted by a parking attendant and then a wonderful host. The restaurant was charming and airy with a modern feel. The bar was full and bustling. I think the best dish to come across the table was the house roasted peppers and sweet butter to accompany... More

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.
