“Great little neighborhood restaurant. Not your typical fast food.”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

We order from Johnson's at least monthly. We love the shrimp dinner and the broiled cod with curly fries. My husband always has a bowl of clam chowder. In the Fall, the homemade bread pudding with cranberries is a must! This is not a full service restaurant, but can be very crowded with locals, especially during Lent.

“Fun and frugal place for a good fish dinner”
Reviewed March 13, 2011

My wife and I both enjoyed our visit here. We both had fried cod, baked potato and cole slaw. All were excellent. They offer a great variety of seafood broiled or fried with dozens of sides to choose from. The cod was crispy and light, perfectly cooked. The potato was perfectly baked and moist. The slaw wasn't swimming nor did it have too much mayo. The sauces were solid both cocktail and tartar. I prefer the vinegar that was out on the table to either anyway. We both enjoyed the door county supper club decor and atmosphere.

“average”
Reviewed August 23, 2010

Stopped here recently after reading reviews on this site. A rare tripadvisor misstep. The walleye was obviously frozen, tasted fishy, and was tough. A big disappointment. My daughter said her tilapia was good. Hush puppies were just OK. This is not worth a special trip

The Best fish is Chicago! You will not find a better place in all of Chicago. I loved the service and the wait staff went out of their way to keep us happy. Have to make this place a regular stop! @@@@@@@@@@@++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
