After searching online and through recommendations on TripAdvisor I chose the Red Ox. The food was exceptional, the service was five stars and the traditional cocktails and wine list were excellent. If I ever find myself back in the Appleton area I will return to the Red Ox, for yet another wonderful dining experience.

My wife and I had a short stay in Appleton, WI to watch a local minor league baseball game. Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and it was one of the highlights of our stay. The menu listed numerous dishes (meat, fish, chicken, etc) that made it hard to choose because they were unique and reasonably priced. I had the... More

I travel all over the country for work and I have yet to find a place that comes close! They have the most amazing food bursting with flavor at Wisconsin prices! Can't beat it. I make a point to stop every chance I can get.

Haddock prepared 20+ ways. Old Fashion mix drinks to die for. Old school service and atmosphere. Excellent food and hospitality

I am from Michigan and I was in Appleton, WI on business. Whenever I travel, I like to try local restaurants because I can do the chain restaurants at home. So I found the Red Ox on Google and read some reviews and it sounded like a good place to go. When I got there, the parking lot was full... More

My wife and I have eaten at the Red Ox for many years. Their food continues to be excellent. This locally owned restaurant has an extensive menu (maybe too big). Their early bird menu is also one of the best in the area. They also pour a great drink. The only negative is that it can get quite crowded especially... More

Seriously. The food is nothing short of outstanding! The different dishes they have are so unique and flavorful and the chef who creates new menu items seems like every week! Wow! Words do not even describe how good the food tastes! A MUST visit.

Have not visited the Red Ox in over 10 years and it is still a great place. Made a reservation for 6 on a Friday night. Went flawless even though I had to move it back twice. Haddock, Ahi tuna, and steaks were all very good. The filet I thought was especially good. Taste and tenderness rivaled just about any... More

The Red Ox is such a great place. The atmosphere and service reminds me of the steak houses I went to with my parents, but the food selection and taste is very up to date and EXCELLENT! I've yet to have such a wide selection of food and such great taste in the whole Fox Valley. We frequent the Red... More

We first visited Red Ox a few months ago for the first time based on a number of recommendations we had heard from friends...and were sorely disappointed. My wife voiced her displeasure via social media and she was contacted by the owner with an apology and a request that we return to try them again at his expense (including throwing... More
