Liquid Johnny’s is a bar and restaurant on the corner of 76th Street and West Main Street in Milwaukee, easy walking distance from the Wisconsin State Fair RV Park. We stumbled across it while we were there to work at Harley’s 110th. We liked the idea of a place we could where we could imbibe freely if we wanted to – without having to worry about driving home.
Liquid Johnny’s is known for it’s Friday Fish Fry. Mike had fish and chips and liked it a lot. I went with a combo of shrimp cocktail and the homemade tortilla chips and salsa. The shrimp cocktail was delicious. The shrimp were plump and fresh, so good they almost didn’t need sauce. The tortilla chips were an instant favorite. Hot and crisp out of the oven, sprinkled with just the right amount of salt. I bet they’d be fabulous with a beer if I drank the stuff.
At Liquid Johnny’s, your bartender is your waitress, so it might take some time to get refills or extras if they’re busy. Napkins and menus are on the table, and on the weekends, the compact space has live music. It’s a cool place to hang out if you’re staying in the RV park…or even if you’re not.
