First of all we reserved way ahead and let them know it was our moms birthday. Tge service was bad and the food was bad. Even with her birthday these guys gave nothing special. And the table we requestef we did not get it. They gave it away. Do you think that hard to put a reserve sign right at that hour if we were there on time that restaurant sucks food was cold
I'd never heard of this restaurant when I was asked to do a mystery shop for brunch. That was over a year ago and I've been back at least once per month since - always for brunch. It quickly became my 'go to' spot to celebrate birthdays, which, as luck would have it, have all fallen on weekends.
I've tried the eggs benedict, eggs Benedict on crab cakes, and French toast. Guests have had omelets and lunch items. Meals are served with delicious mini muffins.
Not only is the food tasty, but the view overlooking the harbor is what makes this my favorite spot to take guests.
I've only been to Johnny's for lunch (probably 30 times) and love everything I've tried. My favorites are the shrimp and crab melt, salmon burger and the clam chowder. The only thing that I've had that was "average" are the fish tacos and that's only because I prefer a spicy salsa rather than what was served with the tacos. If you want a table next to a window for a weekend lunch I would suggest a reservation.

I discovered this place when they had a booth at the annual Santa Cruz Clam Chowder Day on the Boardwalk. I thought they had the best chowder of the event, so I went to the restaurant for the full experience. I was not disappointed. It is one of my favorite restaurants, and with their email promotion newsletters, I continue to come back for the special deals....
