Stopped for dinner and the food was very good. We had fish fry and while the price was right only complaint was waitress staff. Very slow and di not warrant a tip of more than 10%. No refills on drinks and never checked after food delivered.

Decided to try the place after reading reviews on tripadvisor. The reviews are accurate. Food is very good. I had the fried seafood platter and my husband had the broiled seafood platter. The clam chowder was good as well as the clams casino as appetizers. Portion sizers were large. Our main reason for wanting to go here was to sit... 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.

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 out.

Service was good food was average I could cook better in my own kitchen. Deep fry food good,not that hard to mess that up,but cooking on a grill the cook just gotta stay off it.I use to eat there all the time it was great food now I go twice a year hoping its better but disappointed every time.
