    The employees here were all very cool and I had good service. Drinks were very good and the food wasn't bad at all. The Mahi Sandwich was tasty.

    Service is hit or miss and the atmosphere depends on the crowd, but it's the best option for late night eats along the beach. Most other places close their kitchens early. Food is reasonable but on the heavy and greasy side. Mixed drinks are just mixers thrown together so don't expect any craft or higher quality cocktails here. I just stick with a beer in these kinds of places.

    Not the most endearing place on the beachside... I should have seen the red flag when everywhere else was packed and this place was nearly empty. Even though there weren't many other customers, it still took forever to get our drinks which were not worth waiting for. Plus everyone just kept staring, which was very disconcerting. Or maybe these people haven't seen two AA girls out for a drink in here before??? No idea why it's rated much higher on Google as I saw no reason to ever return.

    I don't recommend Johnny's as their food doesn't compete with all the other beach bars, and I don't like how smokers are around people eating. There's some kind of tension in the vibe here that's unsettling and the inside areas are very dingy. Flagler Beach is a fun lively beach town with some excellent beachfront bars and restaurants that are all better than here for food, atmosphere and service.

    I have to say that I like just hanging out as a place to drink at as the service is friendly and they have good prices. Food I've had hasn't been very good though so I eat somewhere else.

    If I could give a "0" star I would but this review requires something!!!! I was there once before and stated that I would never go back but I had family in town it was very late and my family said they were hungry. Against my recommendation they wanted to give them a try mostly because Johnny D's was the only place open near the coast.

    We went inside due to it being cold out. Sat at a booth. Waited approximately 20 minutes before leaving to find a spot in Palm Coast to eat.
    We were never greeted by anyone from the staff while we were there. However, we did receive some very unwelcoming looks from several of the staff members.

    I told my family that this place did not let me down from what I expected from the worst place in Flagler Beach. I recommend staying as far away from this place as possible. Horrible in all aspects!!!!

    I enjoyed sitting outside and even without the beach view, was able to enjoy the beach breeze. The menu has a lot of variety. The waitress told us she was new, so didn't expect her to be perfect. The food is ok. Nothing particularly special, but good enough. I had fish and chips. The breading on the fish was nice and crispy and the fish didn't fall apart at least. I asked for malt vinegar and the waitress had no idea what I meant. She brought me the salad vinegar and oil. The fries were like McDonald's fries. The slaw was boring. The onion rings were good.

    The chili on the hot dog was basic like canned chili. There really isn't anything that we had that was memorable or that would bring me back. I had a couple of margaritas. They were in very small plastic cups with a lot of ice. My friend thought it was a large shot! I jokingly called it the kid's menu margarita. At least it tasted good, but there's no way they fit a shot of tequila in that cup because there wasn't room for anything else if they did. I definitely didn't taste any tequila. So I would not consider this to be a great place to hang for drinks. Maybe the late night after drinking breakfast would be worth a try.

    Staff were all very friendly and drinks were great. Food was mixed with the quesadilla being messy and greasy but the pizza was excellent. Traffic is noisy and no longer a beach front bar, but still quite a nice vibe and relaxing place.

    So, they went from having great views of the beach to crappy views of a street and parking lot! The building feels better laid out and cleaners, but doesn't have that beachy vibe anymore. The service is still very slow and a pain when you just want to stop in for a quick drink. The drink prices are very reasonable though with quite good cocktails and mixed drinks around $6 and under. Food is OK but inconsistent. I recommend for drinks if you're with good friends but if you're looking for a good beachside bar head down the A1A where you'll find much better atmospheres and certainly better food.

    New building is a big step up from the old one except it no longer has a ocean view. Service was very slow and food was decent enough. Drinks were quite good but would of ordered more had the service been faster. Smoke was very annoying. Had an OK time but wouldn't rush back.

    A remarkable difference over their old location and was very impressed. A lot of bikers there but the crowd was in good spirits and the place had a buzzing atmosphere. Drinks, food and service all much improved. Only thing lacking was lack of ocean view now! But still had the beach bar feel to it. Same distinctive colors and you can't miss it when coming over the bridge.

    I'm sorry to say it was not the best experience here. On the positive its location is great and the view from the rooftop is awesome, but the place to me just felt like a makeshift shed made from OSB wood. Seating was picnic tables with vinyl stapled on top that felt grubby and not something very nice to eat off. Server was kind of crass and impatient. I ordered the Flagler Cheese Steak sandwich that arrived looking very messy and unappetizing. The meat was dry and the cheese was like melted plastic! And combined with the strong smell of smoke I just couldn't eat it. Beers were cold at least and priced quite well. Many seem to like it here but each their own... I gave it a try!

    This is a great place to come to and drink. Not to eat, but just to drink. The food and service are downright pathetic. But, if you want to drink, then this is the place for you. Located on A1A across from the ocean with a dynamite view. Again... do not, under any circumstances, come here to eat. Just remember... the food and service can not be any worse. But again, if drinking is your thing, this is your place.

    Highlight of visit: Drinks were good... the service was awful!

    I really don't understand why I went here. Maybe it was the appearance.. I sat at the bar and ordered food..I had a beer..then another..then another. No sign of the food. I asked the surly waitress and she just shrugged.. Got up and left.. Tip?? What Tip..Probably the most pathetic place in Flagler Beach.

    Came here with some local friends. The food was probably the worst I have ever had. The Service ? What service? There were a lot of patrons and everyone was drinking. I guess the thing they specialize in is drinking. Sorry we came here. This place is horrible.

    Highlight of visit: I did use the bathroom... and it worked.

    This place is a bit of a dive It's an old building so there's roaches.. we recently ripped up a bunch of black mold underneath the bar deck and a couple of workers got very sick. However, it is on the ocean so the view is awesome. There are several great bartenders and servers there and the day girl is awesome. We used to frequent there until we had problems with servers named Mary and Sammy specifically. They're not professional and are rude challenged the customer and run the bar as if they owned it. Mary took advantage of an intoxicated regular customer and when she was called out on it, she got very aggressive like an alpha male kicked out the bar. Patrons threatened to call the police. Won't be going back there again.

    Highlight of visit: Johnny Dee gropes Customer

    This place should be re-named Johnny D's... Drinking Establishment, because that's about all that takes place. A lot of drinking, and a lot of drunks.I think the food and service are the worst in Flagler beach..They just serve food as an afterthought..This place is downright pathetic!
