    Cash only, self service. Nice outdoor seating. Beer $3-4 and seafood $12-15 for almost any plate, that btw can easily be shared (they are big).

    Everything is freaking great. Been coming here for over 10 years. The Manhattan clam chowder is delicious. The fish and chips and the shrimp and chips basket is awesome. Definitely recommend!!

    Anyone who knows what's up drives past all the pretenders and heads to Johnny's. Fried clams, and throw the scraps to NY's most acrobatic seagulls.

    Unless you want to get roasted alive or shat on, do not sit outside. The food was delicious: think big portions of fried seafood that makes you want to weep tears of joy. Split the fried shrimp.

    Strongest drink is the Planter's punch for $7! Or get a Henny Colada if you want something a little sweet ($11).

    The clams here are huge and fresh. The best on the island. Skip the fried shrimp though, they are small compared to other places.

    If you want decent seafood and a water view in a very casual setting...this place works! Eat the fried shrimp (yum!)...but stay from the fried clams (not good!).

    Crowded so don't bring in a stroller! Food is great. Have cash, they don't take debit/credit. You can eat inside IF you find space or outside on the water.

    Tonys was much better .. but it burned down so I guess if you don't want to eat @ any of the other 80 restaurants this will do... the crowd is kinda ghetto.. especially in the Summer months.

    Low brow and low key dining. You are welcome to bring a giant beach umbrella to get out of the sun.
