Never disappointed, the food is always very good, the service is personal and makes you feel right at home. the pizza is of the wood fired variety and really , really good. Very cold beer tops it off nicely. As well as a table-side visit from the owner. Jimmy is a classy guy too . !!

Food was good, Pork tenderloin was huge was pretty good. The onion rings were a bit over battered but had good flavor. My wife had the chicken noodle soup and said it was very good. So over all a pretty good meal but sad to say the dining room really needs either a paint job or a really good cleaning.... More

Johnson's Corner is a great restaurant with a decent menu. From fish to pizza, we've never been less than pleased, and the staff is very friendly.

Never disappointed by the service or food. Absolutely nothing updated or fancy about the decor bot the quality of food is very consistent. Portions are large and dishes are nicely seasoned.

Group dinner. I had the BLT and was disappointed. The bacon was chewy tough, also another person had it with the same results. The waitress was kind & brought us another BLT. My wife had the breaded pork tenderloin which she said was OK. The baked potato was good. The waitress did a good job getting our food and drinks.

I love the salads here but there not for dieters, and the portions are HUGE, good Catfish, and Porkchops and overall a great menu selection, its a Bar, its just TVS and a Bar and a seating area, not romantic river views or etc, BUT GREAT FOOD. Its a locals hangout, Its not great decor, Its Sports, Food and Friends...

I was not impressed with this restaurant. The atmosphere was dark and the servers seemed out of sorts. The food was just okay. I had heard good things about this restaurant and I just did not experience it. I will not go back.

Ordered two Buffalo Fish sandwiches, a BLT, and burger. The BLT was good, the burger ok.. but the fish sandwiches. First no buffalo sauce.. just regular fish fillets. One of the sandwiches only had 1 piece of bread (no top). The fish was foul/muddy tasting. The skin was so hard even a knife couldn't cut it (let alone teeth.) Wish... More

My fiance and I were travelling home from St. Louis and decided to stop in Alton, IL for lunch today. We like to find local restaurants that are not chains while we are away from home. We stumbled upon this place, and went inside. Had it been dark, we wouldn't have stopped because it looked a bit dodgy. It was... More
