I sat at the bar as I was by myself. The bartender was friendly and fast. However, everything else was lacking. My wine was from a box and my boneless wings were far from fresh and almost gross.

Had a brat meal one night while on holiday from the UK at the W Wisconsin location - very nice, pleasant staff and the brownie delight was lethal to my waistline but lovely. Will definitely go back next visit to the "Valley"

They have very good steak sandwiches, tenderloin sandwiches. Also their Fish is excellent. I recommend Haddock, or the seafood platter. Criss cut fries are always good also.

If you want a good burger or steak sandwich, this is a great place to go although I feel the prices are a little high for what you get. You can find a better deal elsewhere. The service was exceptional so we'll probably be back.

This is the best bar & grill in Appleton. They offer really good hamburger and fish for Friday. But the fish price is quite expensive compare with other restaurants. Hope that help !

Thoroughly enjoy this restaurant. Their Friday Fish Fry is wonderful, especially the perch. Love their Ranch Bacon Chicken Wrap. Food is always delicious.
