First time here we saw a lot of cars and decided to give it a try. It was a bit fancy in the dining room for what we where looking for but our sandwiches where good. Waitresses was attentive. We would go back again but now know to expect an upscale experience.

Went to Mark's for a Saturday dinner. Had great service and drinks at the bar. We got there early enough to not have a long wait for a table. This is a very popular old school supper club and if you do not get there early enough, you might have a longer wait time. My husband and I both had... More

If you want sea food this is definitely the place to go. I had the fried (deep fat fried) haddock. It was the buffet and unlimited. Others had shrimp and perch and were very happy with the meal. Rock Fish was my wife's choice and it was very good. Service was excellent. The menu includes other items than sea food.... More

Very knowledgable for Celiac and gluten free! Separate fryer so we were able to have fries and onion rings! Safe handling of our foods and was delicious! Even deserts! No one got sick so I know they're safe! I will go back and back and back! Lots of choices!

Just was at Mark's East Side with a few colleagues. We were taste testing Old Fashioneds at several supper club, and Mark's East Side was by far the best. And to top it all off, Mark himself made us some drinks. We ordered a few appetizers which were very, very tasty.

My honey and I are in Appleton for a weekend getaway, and decided - based on the great reviews - to stop in and try some authentic German food. We got there and the wait was an hour, but we decided it would be worth it for some amazing German food. After waiting a bit, we decided to order to... More

We went out of our way from the west side (Mall) and I41 to find this place. It was outstanding. I had the pulled pork sandwich and salad bar. My wife had baked sausage, red cabbage, soup, and spaetzle. We both agreed that the red cabbage was the best we had ever had. The salad bar was great and I... More
