Foursquare Tips

  • I know you want the fried shrimp, but trust me, get the steamed shrimp with butter and garlic. Get half lemonade, half ice tea and skip the corn.
  • Great place for a cheap seafood meal. Fried soft shell crabs are a good deal given the portion size. Grab and eat outside on picnic tables with a nice view of the water.
  • Love this spot cheap food and drinks and u will always bump into somebody u know that I promise
  • The pia coladas are awesome! Recommend it all the time
  • Great steam seafood!!! I LOVE the soft shell crabs!!
  • Great place to get shitted on!
  • if your order includes a steamed and a fried course make sure to place the order at the steamed counter
  • 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.
  • Their Calamari is great + beautiful women all around
  • Skip the soggy fries. The Pia coladas on the other hand are a must have!
  • Steamed shrimp with garlic, corn on the cob and a salad with homemade dressing! Delish!
  • Do not get the sea breeze at the bar. SO bad

  • 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.

  • Everything, as long as it's called seafood.
  • The clams here are huge and fresh. The best on the island. Skip the fried shrimp though, they are small compared to other places.
  • Cheap booze. Cant go wrong with a $5 Pia colada or $2.25 beer can.
