I ran across Johnny Cool's at Dover Beach. He makes the best frozen drinks on the island! I sat sipping my drink, watching the surf and listening to JAZZ. Nothing gets any better than that!

A very friendly and welcome place. Food is delicious. Table next to the ocean.. Service is excellent. Don't miss it. You will enjoy sightseeing on this beautiful island from Johnny Cool Jazz bar and restaurant, cooling with well mix cocktails and fresh island food. Jazz playing in backgraund, just make you touch the piece of Paradise.

Little beach bar. Good food, good selection of drinks. Drinks are not cheap, but the special of the day is cheaper. Good service.

One of the few real beach bar/restaurants in the area. Very good value, good food, good drinks. Right on the beach.

I sent back a drink for not tasting anything like described on the cocktail menu, then found the full price of the drink on my check. The owner then proceeded to argue with me for several minutes about how the drink was made correctly and I had to pay for it. That's what happens when you've got a captive audience... More

Always welcoming & the service staff is great. These ladies are friendly and attentive. Convenient & fight on Dover Beach. Johnny is there overseeing his business every day. Love this place

We stopped it for happy hour drinks and stay for diner. It's on the beach with great sunset views. Food was good.

We had lunch here and drinks several times over our trip. You can access it from both the beach and the street. The flying fish sandwich is always a good choice! The Bloody Marys are somewhat spicey but refreshing.

Service is SUPER slow, owner was there and apparently didn't care. The location is killer, great potential to turn tables due to service but it just isn't there. Prices are also pretty high for portions. Hit up happy hour then bounce..

We looked for somewhere reasonably priced with good food and found it here . Its on the beautiful Dover Beach and although looks a little basic it was a very good evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was good especially and it didn’t break the bank .

Thank Springer114
