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.
Good service. Food was fresh, hot.
Dinner was delicious! Service was amazing!
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
Good food, beautiful spot and great service
We booked last minute and glad we did. Restaurant is located in the Wyndham hotel but was empty. Service was a little slow as our server disappeared from time to time but overall food was very good, my wife had salmon and I had swordfish and would come back. Would recommend this place..
Excellent service and hospitality. Candace is awesome. A true Newport tradition continues with Johnny’s at the Atlantic resort.
What a pleasant surprise! Beautiful outdoor eating space and bar overlooking water. Food was delicious and they had a great menu of drinks, too!
Just not good. Bad food. Bad service. Weak drinks. Loud guests.
Great food and service as always !
Just Don’t. It’s a hotel restaurant. Nothing special. Mediocre at best. Outdoor seating next to indoor pool so your ambience is watching families/kids swim. And sweet smell of chlorine. Food just ok all around. Why bother.
Lovely evening dining out on the magnificent patio under the stars overlooking the waterThe food was good and teasonable
Great dinner on the patio. Beautiful setting and a full moon to boot.
Excellent, friendly server, great healthy food. We had the RI calamari, the caprese sandwich, and the house salad. That was more than enough food for 2 people for lunch and very tasty. Staff were very attentive to my desire to be seated away from other people for COVID safety. Inside decor is classy and gives a wide open, calming atmosphere (too rainy outside so I cannot comment on the outdoor dining). We will be returning!
Food was really good but the service was extremely slow
I don’t know why there were not many diners because the food was delicious, the service was wonderful and the ambiance was great!
This is our second time to Johnny's, very happy with food, staff and especially the atmosphere. It's outside of busy Newport so easy to park and not jammed with people. Beautiful view from large outside patio, which has fire pit, umbrellas and there was a band playing on the Sunday we were there. Highly recommend!
Beautiful atmosphere, good food, drinks, live music!!
Food was fantastic! We had the filet mignon, clam strips, and swordfish. Every meal was perfect. Highly recommend Jimmy's!
Service was excellent as well the food
Lori our waitress was very friendly and her suggestions were spot on. We had the shrimp wrapped in prosciutto was delicious. Caesar salad was enough to share. My husband had the swordfish which was very fresh. I had lobster bits in butter dill sauce which was very good,too.
Fresh green beans were cooked perfectly.
Try the chocolate mousse cake, you won’t be disappointed.
Speciality cocktails were delightful
We are on vacation and staying at the hotel. We ate here last year and enjoyed it so decided to come back. The fried clams were one of the best I’ve ever had The waiter was excellent, making sure that our daughter who has some food allergies got a safe and delicious meal.
Food was ok. Very slow service. Would have been ok if the server communicated with us but she pretty much ignored us.
Anniversary dinner. We were able to get their Early Bird specials! The variety and value was fantastic!
Staff is phenomenal! They are friendly and professional, Always good food and a fun time!
Good service, good food, both kid and adult friendly. Great desserts too! Would definitely come back.
It was raining so we had to sit inside. Other than that this was a great restaurant to eat at. The food and dessert was amazing! Hopefully next time we’ll get to sit outside!
Lovely setting, good seafood, nice server and a beautiful sunset
The out side patio and bar was perfect and has a view of the water. You can watch the colors of sunset from some of the seats. The service was great. We had someone that was on crutches and they were kind enough to sit us out of the way so she could put her leg up.
The food was good. Lots of options. If you are pescatarian or vegetarian you will find several options.
Place was nice. Great patio. Server was nice. Busy. The food wasn’t great. I really didn’t like anything. It was just OK and did it have much flavor. My lamb was tasteless. Had to add a lot of salt lol.
Indoor decor bland, corporate, and depressing. Outside dining much better. Food tasted like banquet cuisine but moderately priced. Would not choose if not staying at hotel.
It wasn’t quite the atmosphere we expected when dining in Middletown. The food was adequate - nothing special but the service was outstanding and our waitress was attentive, funny and kind!
Beautiful venue - ate outside and the view over First Beach was fantastic. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Portions enormous. Excellent!
Understaffedw but so is everyone these days. Our server did a fantastic job despite the number of tables she had. Food was average, had the meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans. Beans were cooked perfectly except for one sad gray-green pod and unfortunately drenched in butter. Potatoes on the dry side and meatloaf a bit bland. Clam chowder was watery and tasted distinctly of chicken broth. Chocolate cake was dense and dry. Hubby had a turkey club which he enjoyed. Price was decent but atmosphere reminded us of eating in a cafeteria. Don’t think we’ll visit again.
Nice open patio. Clam chowder all potatoes! Lobster roll and Caesar salad pretty good. Excellent waitstaff - attentive and friendly.
Can dance is an amazing server ! She always makes our experience special ! I highly recommend this restaurant!!!
Didn’t know restaurant was in a chain hotel. Nothing special.
Great food, great service, great location!
Our services Brianna was outstanding & the whole was very nice too. Highly recommend very good.
