We have vacationed in OC for thirty years now, and Brown's is a must for breakfast or lunch. The food is always good and plentiful, with wonderful service. Must order the freshest donuts. (Do not take credit cards)

My family and I, frequent visitors to Ocean City, for both day trips and week long visits, enjoy breakfasting at Brown's from time to time. They make an excellent breakfast with a wide variety of fluffy, tasty omelets. Many rave of their donuts. Frankly though,...More

We go here because we started when our son was young! It's the beach experience. Staff is excellent friendly and helpful. Donuts are delivered piping hot to your table. Unfortunately breakfast is just average. Not looking for spectacular, but the potatoes could have a little...More

Go in the early morning for the freshest doughnuts. (Grab a nice, hot, black coffee, too, for dunking.) There were six varieties when I went - plain, vanilla iced, chocolate iced, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar and one other that I don't recall. All were good,...More

Most of the time we are content with Brown's donuts, they are the best around. Our family nicknamed them the "sloppy donuts." and it has never been more tasty to get messy. This time we decided to try out the restaurant. If you go on...More

Without a doubt this is a must do 2-3 times a week. They open at 7a and people start standing on line for donuts at 630a even in the rain. All different kinds and they are hot and fresh. They also serve breakfast but donuts...More

We decided to try Browns (sit down inside for breakfast). I ordered cream chipped beef over home fries. The cream chipped beef was OK, the home fries were huge chunks and undercooked (not crispy). My husband ordered pancakes and bacon. The bacon had a very...More

Donuts are amazing. The whole family loved them! Not always fun to wait, but they are so good!! Melt in your mouth, hot and fresh. If you're a nerdy engineer you can geek out watching the machine make them once you get up to the...More

I don't get it... all the praises... rave reviews... these are just plain donuts dipped in a choice of 5 or 6 flavors. I got a mixed dozen and liked the powdered sugar best. They are very light and fall apart in your hand when...More

My girlfriend and I went here last year and thought it was just OK but gave it another try this year and I have to say it's consistently just OK. Both of us had coffee and a breakfast meal for about $25. The service is...More

Brown's is not "open all day". They are a breakfast venue. I suggest, you stop by via bike or while walking the north end of the boardwalk in the early morning. Most likely, there is a lineup at the donut window. You can ask... More
