Pros: very clean and well spaced. Service was friendly. Cheese plate was nice, if cheese was cut a bit thick

Cons: service was very slow, there was a vent above us periodically spewing cold air on a single digit temp day. Food was just ok, nothing great. Fries were overcooked and clam strips were undercooked. Our order was clearly under a heat lamp for a while as plates were scorching hot. Unfortunately that mean my son’s sandwich bread was stale and tartar sauce and coleslaw on my plate were both crusted over

I mean, it’s just a hotel restaurant. As good as can be expected I guess.

Booked this restaurant on New Year's Eve day. Got a reservation with no problem at all. The service was outstanding and they had plenty of wait staff. There was no waiting for our food to be served and it was very good.

We truly had a wonderful experience with the Thanksgiving day buffet. Food was delicious and plentiful. They were accommodating to our party size and still had reservation availability close to the holiday. Beautiful views of the ocean from the 2nd floor dining hall

It was a buffet style Thanksgiving dinner they do once a year on Thanksgiving Day. All the food was delicious and hot and abundant. The wait staff was very attentive to your needs. The price was very reasonable and I would highly recommend going there forThanksgiving dinner

Always enjoy the Thanksgiving buffet at Johnny's. They were very late getting the butter out for the rolls (and it was still frozen), and the cranberry sauce out for the turkey. The food is always good.

It took one hour and ten minutes to get the food and the appetizer came with the food not before!. The hummus was tasteless, the oysters so so, the muscles were a bit better.

We made a reservation and when we showed up the hostess told us to just go outside and pick a table. I wish she had shown us where to go because we ended up seated in the wrong spot for a long time with no one checking on us, and we were starving so this put a damper on the whole experience. Once we asked the bartender for help we received excellent service and great food.

Johnny’s has great food and exceptional service at very reasonable prices. We enjoyed the fisherman’s platter and the pot roast. We have been dining here for twenty years (when they were down at the beach) so we know how well this restaurant is run.

Our reservation was for 11:30. We arrived a few minutes late, but were cordially greeted. The first disappointment was that we had requested patio deating, but the hostess told us that they don't seat buffet guests on the patio. (There were plenty of empty tables inside and outside.) The waitress also didn't seem to understand the policy.

The buffet food was indifferent and not particulary flavorful. The buffet opened at 10:30 and we started to serve ourselves at about 11:40. It seemed as though the food had been put in the warming pans at the opening and not refreshed after that. The pancakes especially were dry, and one was actually crispy around the edge. I didn't realize that the server slicing meat was also making omelets, but by then my plate was full, including eggs.
On the positive side, the ambience was very pleasant, the staff was very friendly and the whole operation was kept very clean. The bacon was nice and crispy and the coffee was good. The waitress returned to refill our cups but didn't ask how the food was. I appreciated that she was masked, and that there were sanitizer dispensers on the wall in several locations.
This was a special occasion--our 57th wedding anniversary, and I had included that fact in our reservation. On the whole, it was a disappointing experience for such a special occasion.

Great food, great service! Baked stuffed shrimp and rack of lamb were delicious. Mixed drinks were fabulous. Ended dinner with fantastic cremé brûlée and chocolate cake. A birthday dinner to be remembered. Stay out of the crowds on the wharf and enjoy the fire pits and water views from Johnny’s!

Ambiance was poor. Just a brightly lit, poorly decorated bland space. Wait staff and the wait for food was long. It was a $$$-$$$$ price point, but really a $$ restaurant. If you’re just looking for something casual, it’s fine. But not a destination at all and definitely overpriced for the product
