I had lunch here with a group of coworkers right around Christmas. Although the restaurant was packed, the service was very prompt and friendly and our food came out surprisingly quick. There were 8 in our party & it seemed we each ordered something different. The German specials looked mouthwatering but I opted for a turkey bacon wrap with the... More

Family owned, a nice place for steaks, seafood, and Mark's german recipes. It's busy on weekends, so make a reservation or get there early.

The bar gets packed, but the wait is half the fun. Fun crowd, awesome cocktails, tasty home-brewed dark beer, and the food....YUM. We visit at least once per trip when we care visiting Appleton for family or business. Never disappoints and only gets better.

We went here around the lunch hour with about 10 of us for work. The service was great and even the owner came by to check on us and fill waters since they were busy. Waitress was friendly and efficient. They have a huge menu with a variety of options as well as an a salad bar with amazing popovers.... More

From start to finish this was a great meal. It was absolutely packed when we arrived. Hour and a half wait. Because we had a young child with us and they knew we had an hour and half drive home yet that night.... they "squeezed" us in. The crab cakes where the best we've had. (Absolutely NO fillers... just pure... More

Exceptionally rude waitress. Actually, the rudest waitress I have ever encountered. A fish sandwich was ordered without cheese. Sandwich arrived with cheese. A simple comment was made that the sandwich had cheese, when it was ordered without cheese. The waitress actually stated "Well, am I supposed to stick my finger in your food and check for cheese". Hearing the exchange,a... More

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 we... 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.
