Best wings on the lake

I've eaten Buffalo style chicken wings at a lot of places. These are the best. They are always crispy, never soggy. The hot sauce is just right. Not smokin' hot but not wimpy either. Well worth the trip around the end of the lake. Also, fantastic fried clam strips. Meaty, not thin and dried... read more

We stop out to Johnnie's Pier 31 at least monthly. Service is always friendly & speedy. I love the Sword Fish, order it most every time, it is a favorite of mine and sometimes difficult to find at other restaurants, The specials are very good & reasonably priced.

Been there many times for Friday night fish dinners, haddock and grouper, it's all good! Friendly staff and reasonably priced. Enjoyable outside dining area in summer months. Oh, almost forgot, excellent prime rib on Friday nights.

We are from out of town and decided to have dinner here. When we first walked in the bartender was hesitant to allow us to sit outside. It was a nice evening but she thought it might rain. After a lot of persuasion she did allow us too. Our waitress was wonderful. She was attentive and friendly. The food was... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience at Johniie's last night. We were welcomed and chose a table and our server came right over for our drink orders and toldus the specials. My husband asked for the Grouper to be blackened and chef was very happy to do so. My Haddock was golden on the outside and plump... More

We ate here last week before the Bullhead dinners went away for the season. The Bullhead were fried perfectly in a nice golden batter. The sides that were included, bean salad and side of pasta, was very good as well. The place had a nice and relaxed feel to it and was moderatly busy while we were there. The food... More

While traveling Route 31 at the eastern end of Oneida Lake, I always plan a stop at Pier 31 for lunch or dinner. Having been a customer there for many years now, I have always found the food and service above average. Although not fancy, I found the wait staff and owner John always trying to make me feel welcome... More
