Marks is a local supper club. It serves lunch and dinner. A wide range of items on the menu. It usually has a special on weekends along with a German menu on sat. A large bar with tables. Plenty of dinning areas. It is usually a wait on weekends but they keep things moving. The food is good and the... 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

We went on the recommendation of family, 6 of us dining. Mark himself came out to our table to chat, he was attempting to pronounce something in German, thankfully, we had a German to help correct him! He offered a sample of Mark's Dark Side Porter, and from a German, it was declared excellent. The meals were fabulous. Service was... More

A favorite of ours when we get back to Appleton. I have only had a few items on the menu as I fell in love with the Stuffed Tenderloin, so I have it every time we go! Great service and some of the best drinks in the area. Just remember to get there early or make a reservation, or your... More

get up this way a couple times a year. always great food. be prepared for a wait but worth it. Hot bacon dressing on the salad is to die for. Best I have had. Fried haddock was lightly breaded, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. Only complaint would be the frozen fries. Not a fan of them. Fresh cut would have... More
