Wonderful meal

Went on a Saturday night with 4 other guys as part of a guys weekend away. Our table wasn't ready when we got there and they weren't exactly sure how long it would be (they assured us it wouldn't be overly long) but they found us a nice table in the bar area. The manager (owner?) even said that... read more

Mark's East Side is our favorite go to place for that special night out or that special occasion. We have been going there for a number of years and have never been disappointed with the food or service. The Schnitzel's and german menu items are all good. The American menu ilike steaks and chops are good also. At St. Paddy... More

We eat here a couple times a year. The food is always very good and reasonably priced. It has a very nice atmosphere were you can sit and relax and enjoy your night out. Great mixed drinks too.

Best fish fry in the valley. Very busy Friday nights but worth it. During the week the haddock is different then Friday nites. My opinion is Friday's fish is better.

Mark's is a staple in North Appleton. No where will you get such fresh ingredients and great German style food. Make sure you make reservations as Mark's is a true supper club and has a great following. You'll understand why once you've had a great drink or beer with your amazing dinner. Some of the best fish you'll get in... More

This is certainly a supper club atmosphere but people of all ages are there because it is one of the best around. The food is great, very good steaks, seafood, and authentic german fair. Great Desserts too! Service was very good and attentive. If you are from out of town I would suggest visiting if you want some great food.... More

German food and a brandy old-fashioned are what this place is all about. Inviting decor, friendly hostess, happy customers, very reasonable prices and generous helpings. Varied menu. Relaxing. Our waitress pushed us a little bit early on, and then didn't return for a while, but it was OK, because we were enjoying ourselves and weren't in any hurry, and it... More

It’s our 40th anniversary and we are trying to find somewhere special to go out for a traditional steak house old school restaurant dinner. Unfortunately most of the mom and pops have succumbed to the chains in our area and the new ones are catering to the younger appetites. We spent quite a bit of time on the internet looking... More

This restaurant is wonderful! The staff is very friendly and prompt. We were there for Friday night fish fry - which is all you can eat, but the first serving is plenty! The schaum torte with raspberry topping is amazing, so save room for it, too! They also sell their bar/snack mix which was a real treat to have for... More

We have been customers of Mark's East Side for over 25 years. Consistently excellent food, excellent service, and an owner who is very welcoming. We were a party of three for lunch during the second week of January 2015. We arrived at 11:30 am and by the time we left, the place was packed. One of the members in my... More
