Great selection of Wisconsin microbrews

I am a Wisconsin native currently living in New York. When I get back to Wisconsin, I like to pick up as much of the local beer as possible. When I am in the Appleton area, I visit Flanagan's to make those purchases. On this trip, I picked up selections from New Glarus, Potosi, Berghoff, Point... read more

We were here for dinner on a Wednesday night. First the great...the food! I had the baked ravioli which was simply amazing. Not at all like your standard chain restaurant Italian food. My husband had tenderloin and said it was the best steak he's ever had. Now the not-so-great. Our waitress was awful. She told us right off the bat... More

I was in Appleton, WI on business and happened upon this restaurant. I love wine and am fairly discriminating about it. They had an impressive selection of wines and offered me a sample of any of them on their list. I tried three different wines. They were all excellent. I ordered the evening's special, which did not disappoint me. It... More

First of all, there are many good places to dine in Appleton. With that statement, it has been several years since we have hit Flanagan's, simply due to their location (not near us). We ate last night before a show at the PAC. Excellent idea, as their proximity is great, and you can remain parked there during the show. Easy... More

First, there is free parking behind the restaurant, and as this is a downtown restaurant, this is helpful as the PAC is adjacent so you can have dinner and then walk to the theater. We started with Bruschetta and Asian Shrimp, both were very good. I had the Alaskan Halibut and it was the best I've ever had. Presentation was... More

Really enjoyed the arugula, capers, and red onion served with balsamic vinegar. Warm toast made it extra special! Clifford Bay Sauv. Blanc was my favorite from the wine flight. Enjoyed talking with the bartenders and listening to the locals' lively banter. Will definitely return if I ever get back to Appleton.

We stopped in here for an appetizer and a glass of wine and it was excellent! They have something called the "wine flight" which is trying three different glasses of wine so you can see which one you like the best. I think it was $10.00. You can then go next door if you want and buy the wine that... More

We have been to this restaurant about 3 times. The first time was so wonderful. The second time didn't seem as memorable as the first and this last time.....we won't be back. On a Friday night there was only maybe 2 other tables full. Service was slow and apathetic. Had to ask for water refills and the waitress seemed to... More

The wine selection was good and the waitress was helpful but the steaks were poor. While the cut was on the menu as "prime" but was perhaps choice and that would generous. We are not planning on coming back.

We visited after 9 pm on a weeknight seeking cool decor, dessert and WINE. We each ordered a wine flight, my friend ordered a white flight and I ordered a red flight...we asked the bartender to pick the flight for us, and she did not disappoint.
