The address listed for Johnson's Landing directs you to a vacant lot in a sea of vacant lots, but just keep going and you'll see the sign for the RV park. The service was helpful, fast and very friendly. We sat outside for the best view of the Sea, but I guess the sea is shrinking and we also had... More

This a restaurant and bar which is part of an EV park along the waterfront. The bar faces a window which overlooks the Salton Sea. The beer mugs are frozen. They only have beer and wine with a limited menu. Nice people. Worth the drive to sit and have a beer and look at the water and the mountains on... More

Place isn't fancy but is clean and comfortable and the food is great. Hamburgers are thick and juicy, fries are real potatoes and onion rings are excellent. Service was good and all were friendly. Excellent lunch and I will be back!

We had the Brisket and pulled pork the other night for dinner and it was GOOD. We always have a great time. We always try and stop by for a red beer (just have Lisa make it for you, she will know what you want). We walked the trailer park and the snow birds were out having Happy Hour, you... More

This place was right across the street from my motel, Ray and Carol's, and I made it in just before closing time. I had a cheeseburger and fries. Good cheeseburger and great fries. Service was friendly and attentive. Great for a quick, basic bit of food.

Great Place. Really good food and service was great. Quaint location full of history about the sea. I would go back again.

A smile goes goes such a long way. It increases happiness for the one who gives a smile and the one who receives it. Unfortunately, those in so-called service here appear to think that frowns and growls add more to the setting. This is a very local place trying to stay alive and needs all the help it can get,...

The decor recalls the better days; the menu is authentic 60's comfort food; the service is small town friendly. What has changed is the ownership in the past year. The baked goods are made at the restaurant, the quality of the food is excellent (the hamburger buns are from a fancy bakery in Palm Springs); the salads are fresh and... More
