This fine dining establishment has been in the area for many, many years! It's a family-owned business and the owner (Mark) cares very deeply about his customers and the quality of food that they are served. My friend and I arrived at 5:30 on a Friday evening. It's quite apparent how popular this supper club is because the parking lot... More

The place was jam packed! I'm assuming there were holiday parties going on - the wait was 1 hour but we were seated in about 40 minutes.

I ordered a tenderloin medium rare and it was the best steak I ever had in the Fox Valley area for a while. We went on... More

In September 2016, we were at Mark's East Side for Friday Fish Fry dinner. We've been customers for over 25 years. Our experience in September 2016 was disappointing - the fried fish was dry, over-cooked. We returned to Mark's East Side in January 2017. The beer battered deep fried Haddock was outstanding - back to what we have come to... More

I have been to Mark's multiple times for Friday night fish and have never been disappointed. Always great food, great drinks, and great service. This was my friend's first time at Mark's and they gave him a gift card to come back, and brought out a free sample of their sauerkraut balls for us to try (which we weren't fond... More

Marks has been around for a long time. Family owned. I believe this is second generation. Their Friday fish is to die for. German food excellent. Love the bar area. Attentive bar tenders and true Wisconsin supper club atmosphere. Great for happy hour or family/friend gatherings. You may have a wait for a table but the bar is fun!

There were 9 of us in our party. We had reservations for 5:30pm. We were seated and we had the most incredible server and the food was mouth watering. I had a 16oz rib eye that was like eating butter. It was incredible! The twice baked potato was baked perfectly. The Beef Vegetable Noodle soup was some of the most... More

My husband and I checked out this place for the first time on a Thursday night. It was starting to get busy, but we were able to grab an Old Fashioned while waiting for our table. The food was great, and the portions are large. From the bar staff, servers, and owners, everyone was friendly. It was obvious they want... More
