Rebecca can pour a tall beer or mix a delicious cocktail. The kitchen serves up a tasty meal. Good for an after work happy hour beer or weekend dinner date.

Visited here for dinner with another couple prior to Christmas. The four of us have eaten here multiple times, and it is always delightful. I had the French Pot Pie, which was a creamy chicken stew with rutabaga, acorn squash and carrots flavored with garlic, sage and thyme, and topped with a phyllo lid. It was delicious, but I thought... More

My review follows organizing a Christmas dinner party for 44 people. When we visited the restaurant to arrange for the party we were given the menu, which included three choices.. the beef bourgunignon, Salmon Mornay and Risotto Provencal chicken breast. We were told that there would be red roses on the tables and that we could supplement the decorations with... More

I'll start with the bottom line. I rarely give 5 stars but I almost did this time. I'll go back again soon and if I still love it like I did last night I will change my rating. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for. A quiet bar area with an even quieter dinning area. Its hard to... More

My wife and I spent a night at the Chateau DePere during a getaway weekend and had dinner at Cafe Chanson, which is the hotel restaurant. The Chateau DePere is part of the small Wisconsin Harp and Eagle chain which aims at providing a boutique hotel and restaurant experience at modest prices. The Chanson menu includes some basic and familiar... More

Over all not good food, service will not go back. Never came back to check out how things were. Which were not good. Steak was cordy, chicken dry. Asked for more sauce but by the time it came it was to late. People walking through to hotel while we are eating. Puling their luggage with them. Sorry just not right.

Food was good, I had the french dip which had a slightly different twist, a bit on the sweet side. Husband had the perch, which he said also had a different twist to it but good. The atmosphere is pleasant, a bit dark when you walk in, all in all a nice night.

The outdoor seating on the balcony has the best views of De Pere. Seating outside is limited. Excellent location for travelers and locals alike. Walking/biking trail steps away.

My guest and I had dinner at Cafe Chanson on a Saturday night. Our reservations were at 6pm. We were seated away from the bar in a quiet dining room near the window with a view of the river.

This restaurant used to be closer to a fine dining establishment, especially when it was known as Andrew's. When changed to a French restaurant, they had some rather creative and tasty cuisine. However, it now seems that they can't decide what kind of restaurant they are - French, Irish or whatever. For appetizers I had a pork belly dish and... More

Savor Cafe Chanson’s award-winning contemporary American-French cuisine prepared by our Chef de Cuisine. Our menu changes reflect the seasons; but we retain our French classics and guest favorites such as the Boeuf Bourguignon, Pan Seared Salmon, and Moules Mariniere.

Our menu boasts the flavors of France with a casual touch, such as our Croque Monsieur, a classic French ham and Swiss sandwich that rivals any found in the sidewalk cafes of Paris; and our Royale with Cheese has a reputation among our guests as being the “best burger in the state”. In addition to our seasonally changing menus, in warmer weather we also boast one of the most beautiful patios in town, featuring breathtaking views of the Fox River where you can enjoy outside dining or perhaps just a hand-crafted cocktail or one of our numerous wines by the glass, something that can of course always be enjoyed year-round in our cozy Taverne bar.

Finally, in addition to our set menu of expertly-prepared cuisine, we also feature nightly Chef’s Specials and hold special events such as Wine Pairing Dinners, Themed Coursed Dinners, and Special Event Packages that include dinner and a night’s stay in our Boutique Hotel.
