We went to visit the beach at Rye, which was pleasant (although rather dirty), and saw Seaside Johnnie's restaurant at around dinner time, so we decided to give it a try.
The good things about it: it was right on the beach, giving some nice views, particularly at sunset. The wait was not very long, even for a beautiful, warm night. The service was friendly and efficient. The menu was varied, and there was even a nice sushi selection.
The not as good: the food wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing. Sushi was pretty good. Lobster bisque could have been better (didn't taste like it was freshly made). Other food was fine. Nothing was bad, but it was somewhat average. I thought that the food was pricey for the quality of food.
Overall, I think that this restaurant is a nice casual place, with friendly service, with good views right on the beach, and is worth going to if you're in Rye. The food isn't bad and the menu is varied. A good experience, overall.
