We have been to Johnson's many time. No way has it keep up with time. They no longer have Richinson Ice Cream ! The new line is no way a good. The food is just fair if that. The service is still very good and that saved the place. The big new bar is fun but that is it. Beer... More

Good ice cream and too convenient when leaving the scout camp. It seems like my car has a gravitation pull into the parking lot

The food was very good. They have many beers on draft and in the summer they have excellent ice cream and many choices.

Among my favorite places to go for ice cream. Great selection and overly generous portions. In terms of other food, great mussels and pie selection...especially bumbleberry pie. Seafood selection is good, the shrimp wrap was ample, tasty and fair price.

We have been going to Johnson's Dairy Bar for over 20 years. This year has been the most dissapointing year ever. Between no steamers and bad service I will never go back. We were there on Saturday night and 2 of us had to wait for our food while 3 of us had our food. My son would not eat... More

We stop here every year for ice cream after dinner. I keep forgetting how large the portions are. It was a hot day and some of our party were fighting the melting cones. Very, very good.

Fabulous ice cream bar! Huge portions, lots of flavors. We thoroughly enjoyed our after dinner ice creams here. We sat outside on the benches; lots of room for all 6 of us. Very busy, but the line went quickly and they were very organized. I highly recommend the S'more ice cream!

If you enjoy ice cream, pies or whoopie pies take some time to head to Johnson's. The small size servings are huge and will satisfy most adult appetites. The hot fudge sundae will not only satisfy your ice cream likes the hot fudge will quell your chocolate cravings. Simply put, try this dairy bar, you won't be disappointed.
