Great view, good frozen drinks, but the food was awful. I've gone once a summer to Oakland Beach and Johnnies to enjoy the view where I grew up years ago. They could offer people delicious options but it's terrible. Deep fried calamari bits, poor quality fish n chips, cheap ingredients and high prices. Done there!

Best place to take out of town guests for dinner, drinks and the view. Food is not fancy but portions are large so we usually spilt an entree. Service depends on the crowd but we usually find it good. They have a full bar and they make a good Manhattan! It's also very close to Rye Playland which you can... More

When you get thirsty you walk up and get a frozen Marguerite or cold beers. Always nice to cool off to. Hood finger foods as well and seafood.

Great location, beautiful water views and fried food galore. Service is very mixed but food is consistently poor. Most people pick this spot because of its location not because of the food. You would think that a variety of fresh fish, live music and a festive atmosphere would be a natural mix for this location. Sadly, it comes up short... More

I agree with most of the poor reviews of Seaside Johnnie's, but it's still one of my favorite places in summertime. I have many great memories of taking visitors here to enjoy the views of the Sound, have a few drinks, and eat the overpriced food. (Give me a plate of mussels and some red wine and I'm good.) Plan... More

It is def a place to go to enjoy the beautiful view of the Sound and enjoy your day. The area around the restaurant is very kid friendly so it can be a family day. We didn't eat here but we had drinks and I swear that my frozen pina colada had no liquor in it. I am a light... More

We had 3/4 cup of beer in paper cup at $7.00 each. Frozen Colada had no liquor in it for 12.00. Christian was our waiter, we had to wait 20 mins. before he came back for 2nd orders each time. But when the bill came we could not get rid of him. Terrible service when he only had 2 tables... More

A classic place to come and eat and relax if you spend all day at the beach. The food is ok and drinks are good. The atmosphere is wonderful. However, it is way overpriced.

We always take our landlocked friends here because of the great view and the close proximity to Playland. While the prices are a little high the portions are large and we usually split an entree or end up taking some home. We especially like the lobster bisque and baked seafood combo. Their sides of sautéed spinach are enough for two.... More

Seaside Johhnie's has a beautiful view. It's really nice to sit outside here and look over Long Island Sound and see Playland in the distance. So far, so good. But the food is really average. And... It's expensive! The menu is extensive but I can't really recommend anything on it as worth trying. Best to stick to appetizers and drinks!
