This is a great place for food: omelettes never disappoint (ask for "The Mark", a hidden menu item). Atmosphere is great, Johnny is just back from double knee surgery, and Patty is awesome. Service is great. The coffee is poor at best, you'll be happier with tea!

We have stopped here couple of times. It was busy and staff is always friendly. We waited for a little while. Deco is very nostalgic, 50's style. You get plenty of food for money. I never have complaint, coffee can be a little stronger.

Have been going to Johnny B's since it took over from Glenmont diner. Never a disappointment. The very best Belgium waffles. Great omelettes. Johnny is very pleasant and engaging as are all the staff.

While traveling up to Vermont we needed a place to stop for breakfast. After checking Google maps and our GPS we located Johnny B's Diner not too far off the highway. On the outside it looked like your typical stainless steel diner. The crowd waiting outside to get in was also a good sign. On the inside it was like... More

Large portions of good food are served to you by the friendly wait staff. We had breakfast there and were well satisfied. Interesting décor. No problem getting a seat and fast service.

The diner food was fine. Johnny B's Glenmont Diner is metal on the outside with booths & counter seating inside. I loved the kitschy 50s atmosphere in this old fashioned diner. There were 45 records on the ceiling & walls. They play 50s Oldies music (maybe some 60s as well) during the week & 70s music on the weekend. Heads... More

Walking into Johnny B's is like walking on to the past!! Memorabilia all over the walls and ceiling! A galaxy menu will make it challenging to choose! Food is delicious and generous! Staff incredible and the very personal owner will share the history of this diner that actually was called the Glenmont diner in the 60's!! How do I know?... More

Good place to visit for standard diner fare. Good prices and good taste. The place has local charm with good service. Could use minor improvement in cleanliness, with dusty blinds making one wonder how much attention is paid to those details. However, would recommend for good tasting food and nice options on the menu.

The Hawaiian omelette is top-notch! Home fries are super good as is the coffee. I would have given 5 stars but I had a burger today and was disappointed. Stick to breakfast food & you'll be very satisfied!
