We visit family in the Bay Area once in every 18 months or so and we always try to stay in Santa Cruz or at least visit. Johnny's is always high on our list of must visits as they serve excellent fresh fish and seafood. We just wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.

We ate here the night after a lovely meal at Crow's Nest, paid more and were really disappointed with the food. I had fish and chips, the portion was small for the U.S. and came with no trace of salad. My other half had a seafood pasta dish, which came with lots of shells but essentially NO seafood. He said it may as well have been pasta in tomato sauce. Not a great experience.

We started of with calamari which was very good.Then 2 of our group had the sea bass broiled two different ways, both were excellent. The fish tacos were also delicious. The last dish we had were the prawns which were spicy and very tasty. Our server was very efficient and very knowledgeable of all the items on the menu.

Went here with the family after a day at the boardwalk. I had the salmon sautéed with the parisian (pictured ). It was sooooo good. Finished off the plate. Other family members had the French dip and fish and chips also delicious!

The service was great, they are very accommodating. We also had 3 kids and 2 babies with us. They had great kids options. Grilled cheese, bbq chicken, quesadilla, fish, pasta. We will definitely be going back again!
