I have been going to Johnson's for 30 years and have never been disapointed. The fried shrimp is excellent. Large hand breaded and fresh, cooked to order. Great sides and very friendly staff. Excellent value.

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.

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.

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
