ANTIOCH – The Taste of the Tropics is coming to Antioch.
Bamboo Johnny’s – Fresh off the Boat, the premier tiki-themed food boat, has found a new home at Cypress Resort & Marine on Petite Lake in Antioch. You no longer need a boat to enjoy these tropical favorites. Now you can float up and walk up.
Bamboo Johnny’s opens at Cypress Resort on May 18.
Since opening in summer 2018, Bamboo Johnny’s has been the talk of the Chain and was even featured on the Food Network. It serves favorites such as Bamboo Johnny’s Signature Lobster Rolls, Calypso Shrimp Tacos, Jerk Chicken Tacos, Caribbean BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders and Island Shrimp Ceviche, as well as local favorites such as Chicago-style hot dogs and Wisconsin beer brats.
As you approach Bamboo Johnny’s, you’ll hear tropical music and receive a lei. While you’re waiting for your order, you’ll be offered fresh-cut pineapple. Kids get free ice pops and even dogs get a treat. You can eat on your boat or at a table on the beach at Cypress Resort. If you’d like to stay on the beach for the day, you’re welcome to for a $10 fee per person.
“We love making our customers happy and we can’t wait for the season to start,” said owner John Kopanski, a 30-year veteran of the food and beverage industry.
