This is an old favorite. Great fried foods, like fried seafoods - clams, scallops, etc. Good french fries. Order at counter. Take a table, and your food will be brought to the table. The frappes are excellent, too.

This isn't really a Drive-In, as you might traditionally think. But there is an window where you can order from, or you can walk in and order there, and be served. Wonderful seafood options, friendly staff, clean, tasty. Locals know this is a great place to visit regularly. Known for its ice cream. Something for everyone.

If you have a craving for ice cream or fried food/seafood, then Johnson's is the place to go. Beware that the ice cream servings are huge!!!!! Great very casual atmosphere. It is the sort of place where you order at the counter, find a seat, and enjoy. Not a place to count calories!

Johnson's is best known for their many flavors of homemade ice cream in the summer. (In that regard they blow Kimball's in Westford out of the water on value.) But in winter, this longstanding Groton institution is the only place in this scenic New England town to get a real breakfast. They are pros. Remember getting breakfast at all those diners years ago? Johnson's does too, and that's what they serve up. They had the Panera model before Panera was around, i.e., walk in, order your food, get your drink, sit down, relax. They'll bring your breakfast (or lunch) over when it's ready. Quick. Easy. Tipping is optional (but appreciated). We cleared our own plates because it felt like home (but you don't have to.) Are there other spots in this beautiful town to get breakfast? Sure but they're either rubber eggs at Dunkin or amateur hour at the much younger spot in the center. Be smart, go with the pros.
