“Never disappoints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Have been here a few times, and even ordered food to go, it's been great every time!
Portions are good and everyone is friendly. The place itself is a little small, i wouldn't recommend going with a large group, and get there early.

“Hard to beat for traditional Wisconsin fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Jansens is an institution in Oshkosh and once you step in you feel like you have traveled back in time in a good way. Fish Fry is great on Fridays of course. Don't expect presentation or trendy dishes, just good old fashioned Wisconsin food and drink.

“Bony fish”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We live in Oshkosh and frequent alot of restaurants all over the fox valley. I have eaten at Jansens 4 times in total. It's always been pretty good, until this last time. I dont know if the cook is different or what, but I decided to order perch (risky choice I know but thought I'd give it a shot since their haddock was quite good) The FIRST bite I took was loaded with bones....4 I believe. Now I know that a bone is gonna show up here and there in a fish entree, but to have 4 in the first bite kind of ruined the rest of the 17.00 meal for me. Next time....WENDTS for perch!!

“Supper club quality food, diner prices, tavern atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Best prime rib in this hemisphere... Coming from my Dad who is quite picky about prime rib flavor and cut. Prices are great, tables are truck stop quality and atmosphere is very dark and tavern-like. Service was nice. Don't forget to order an ice cream after dinner drink! Grasshopper, brandy Alexander and pink squirrel are ALL made very well there! :)
