Fantastic little restaurant... You can have food delivered to the Hotel Bar... The Joe Burger is the best (it’s not on the menu, got order from Kevin at the Hotel Bar - this is top secret).

Creative food, a nice wine list and great service. Chef specials were delightfully delicious. It was a bit too loud due the boisterous table of 10 near us. If I am back in Appleton, this is where I will come.

Nick's passion for food blossomed several years ago. JR began taking Nick to work with him when Nick was 14 years old. He washed dishes, prepped food items, plated desserts and made pizzas. Since then, he has spent time as a Kitchen Manager, Line cook in Door County, Sous Chef at Chives Restaurant for 5 years and wanting to expand his knowledge of food, took a seasonal position for the summers of 2011 and 2012 at the Harbor View Hotel & Resort on Martha's Vineyard in Edgartown, Massachusetts.
