The Outstanding Restaurant In Wisconsin That Is Known For A Single Menu Item

If you asked the goats what to order at Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant & Butik, they undoubtedly would recommend the grass that’s growing up on the roof. This iconic Door County establishment is well known for the rooftop goats that graze leisurely as tourists below grab photos. But there’s much more to this restaurant than grazing goats. It has a great menu that’s anchored by a single item that’s wowed generations of hungry vacationers: the Swedish pancakes. Come along as we do a taste test of the menu at one of the best restaurants in Wisconsin!

The restaurant is open all year long and includes Al’s Butik, a store that offers traditional men’s and women’s Swedish clogs, Scandinavian gifts, and more. You can learn more about the shop and restaurant on  the official restaurant and Butik website as well as on its Facebook page.
