Goats on the Roof-Al Johnson’s


Have you ever tried to eat dinner with live goats grazing on the rooftop? Most people cannot say that they have had this experience, but I most certainly can say that I have. I had the pleasure of eating at Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant this summer in Sister Bay, Wisconsin. Al Johnson’s is easily one of the most famous and most recognizable places in Door County, and anyone who wants an exciting and unique experience should definitely check it out.

Al Johnson’s is an authentic Swedish family-owned restaurant. The food, which consists of Swedish meatballs, pancakes, fish, sandwiches, and much MUCH more is absolutely delicious and affordable. The service, girls dressed in traditional Scandinavian clothing, is phenomenal. But most importantly, there are GOATS on the roof.

If you’re looking for an experience, Al Johnson’s is the place for you to go. The roof is entirely covered in sod, and on days when the weather is not too hot or too cold, the goats will always be there to greet you.

I just want to thank Al Johnson’s for a delicious meal and a memorable experience. I hope to revisit sometime in the fall. You can check out their site at http://www.aljohnsons.com/
