We're the Johnson family, the owners and operators of Don's Dock. Our family has been catching and serving fresh seafood to Chicago and the suburbs for four generations, dating back to the 1930s. We get seafood deliveries two to three times each day. Most of our seafood is domestic or Canadian, coming from the Great Lakes, the Gulf of Mexico, Alaska, the east coast, and more. All of our dishes are homemade, many using old family recipes.
Here are some other things you should know about us:
There's no cork fee, so just bring along your favorite wine or beer. We have bottle openers, cork screws, wine glasses, and frosted beer mugs for you to use.
