We love Mark's & drive from Green Bay often just to enjoy a meal here. Is totally worth the drive. Service is always top-notch & Mark himself usually stop at each table to check in with diners. The bar is great & offers a wide selection of beers, wine & mixed drinks. The food however is what keeps us coming... More

I had my first Wisconsin Fish Fry here. I had such amazing food there that now I'm nervous to go try a fish fry somewhere else. My waitress was Lyndsay and she was the cutest and sweetest waitress ever. I went on a Friday with a Packer game on so we were seated immediately and our food came out immediately... More

Mark's East Side has the best salad bar around these parts! Their steak is to die for! There are no words for their Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad! And their German food is wonderful! They have a large menu so every one would be able to find something delicious. They have a full bar with many German beers to select from.... More

Food was great and so was the price. I have never had a sandwich made with Mahi-Mahi and it was the best. There wasn't anything I have had at this restaurant that I disliked.

Great meals with superb service. I returned from Munchen in the last month, and the specials pot pie soup and braised short ribs could hold there own.

Table reserved for 14 at 5:30. Even though menu is smaller on Friday evenings we did not receive food until close to 7:30. My German potato salad was just a little warm. Baked Haddock was served with butter in sauce, but it was over cooked and dry. Annual dinner with relatives coming from an hour way was no fun. After... More
