“Donuts are the best!!!!!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 via mobile

We have been making this a breakfast stop each time we come to OC for the past couple years. The donuts are a must! My favorite is the cinnimon but you can't go wrong with any of them. The breakfast is good too but this time didn't seem to be as good but maybe it was an off day.

“Heavenly Donuts”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We purchased a dozen of Brown's delicious donuts for takeout. A mix of vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon sugar. These donuts were perfectly crisp on the outside and super soft, moist and flavorful on the inside. Without a doubt, the best old fashioned donuts I've ever had. I finally learned why Brown's is an Ocean City favorite. The vanilla were a bit better than the other flavors, in my opinion. Enjoy!

“Seriously, get on that line! You won't regret it.”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Saw the line going down the boardwalk for these donuts and almost didn't wait. So glad we did. Got an assortment of donuts but the best were the glazed and the honey glazed. So fresh, hot and delicious. Another option is to wait to go in and eat at the restaurant, you can also order donuts with your breakfast at the table.

“Hot Doughnuts”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

The best old fashioned cake doughnuts come out hot and delicious. Its impossible to eat just one. The line can be long, but go early in the morning, It' worth the wait.

“Huge disappointment”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

We had passed by many times, but have never eaten here-as we are big fans of another restaurant that sells donuts close by-sooo-we decided to try it. It must have been the "parents" running the place on the occasion we decided to try the place. Let's call their behavior "old school". The "hostess" practically pushed the waiting line (including children) out of the way as she screamed that there needed to be a path for customers who were leaving. The party ahead of us was a party of 7, we-a party of 5. When the woman asked us how many in our party-we told her 5-she grumbles aloud "oh-all my big parties coming in now-of course!". The party ahead of us had been waiting close to an hour for their table. When we were finally seated, we were shocked, as the place was not full. It took forever to get our drinks. Various parts of our meal were missing, & we had to hunt our waitress down several times in order to re-request what we had ordered-only to have our waitress look at her order sheet & say-oops-you did order that! She would disappear for a while-then come back without our food, & we would have to remind her yet again. We were less than impressed with the food-plain old breakfast items-& the donuts are wayyy better at our usual spot, a few more steps down the boards. The fresh fruit cup was even mediocre. We waited for our check for a very long time as well. As we waited for our check-we heard the "hostess" tell another family that they were out of donuts for the day-& that they could "decide what you want to do while I tend to something else". nice. additionally, you'll be open for lunch also-but you ran out of donuts during breakfast (during the week)? All in all-a rather huge disappointment.
