Goats on a hot sod roof – Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant, Door County, WI
Arguably one of Door County, Wisconsin’s most distinctive dining establishments, Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant features live goats grazing on its sod roof.
The family-owned eatery has been around for more than 60 years, but the grass roof and its bovid caretakers were added as part of a 1973 remodeling.
Although I didn’t dine there, the restaurant’s menu features Swedish recipes and servers dressed in Scandinavian garb, and seems quite popular.
To see just what the goats are up to right this minute, the restaurant’s website has a “goat cam” (actually 2 cameras): http://www.aljohnsons.com/goat-cam/
