Johnson's is absolutely reliable for a meal. Their ribs are the best I've ever had, and they make a darned good chicken parm. Steaks are good but not outstanding. Seafood is good but not outstanding. The salads are very good , but stay away from their vegetable offerings which are usually peas or carrots from a can or maybe frozen... More

they have very good seafood here, I've had fried oysters and haddock here, clams were okay, ht location in New Durham NH seems to give much larger servings, had chicken tenders, clams and haddock there and they were great.

We visited this restaurant several years ago and were not overly impressed, so we didn't go back for a long time. Well, we finally went back and were glad we did. The interior is nothing to brag about, wooden booths with paper placemats, but everything else was great. The waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was very good, for... More

There are three of these restaurants--Northwood NH, New Durham NH, and the North Berwick location. They must be the origin of the phrase Big Johnson, from the portion sizes. A cup of chowder here is the equivalent of a bowl some other places. The burgers and sandwiches are enough for two people. When I took my Mom there for lunch,... More

My family has passed by this restaurant for years on our way to our camp...we decided to give Johnson's a try...found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The atmosphere was relaxed...menu was varied....prices were a tad on the pricy side... although the Fish and Chips that I tried were priced right... My fish covered the entire plate ...was fresh...

Went to the New Durham NH location for grandmothers birthday. Food was fresh. Tarter sauce was delicious. Oil was clean. Will be back!!!

We grab takeout here occasionally and while it may be a little more expensive than other takeout places, the food is always superb. Their seafood is prepared perfectly and even their chicken tender dinner is worth raving about. I guess the old adage that "you get what you pay for" is still right.

This restaurant is close to home in Berwick. We live in Sanford where there isn't much in the restaurant scene. This place has a good menu of seafood steak and other things.

Recommended by our hotel when we inquired where the locals eat, it was easy to put this into the GPS which took us down wooded back roads. It was a pleasant dining room with courteous staff and something on the menu for everyone's tastes. We were most impressed with the menu, the services and the prices. If we return to... More

What a wonderful little local restaurant. Not on the ocean. Not by the sea. On the side of the road in South Berwick between Wells and Somersworth If you are in the area - give it a try. Different from chain restaurants. Small, quite. Clean. Well organized. Friendly staff. Excellent service. Great food. Frequented by locals- must be good. Monday... More
