“out of towner”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

I am from Michigan and I was in Appleton, WI on business. Whenever I travel, I like to try local restaurants because I can do the chain restaurants at home. So I found the Red Ox on Google and read some reviews and it sounded like a good place to go. When I got there, the parking lot was full and I and others had to park on the street (good sign at dinner time). When I went in, there was a 30-45 min. wait. I told the owner (I later found out he was the owner) that I wasn't going to wait and I thought I would go back by my hotel to Outback. Long story, but I decided to eat at the bar. Man, I'm glad I did. I ate myself silly for $38.00 which included the tip. I had the king cut prime rib Oscar style with beef vegetable soup and bread. The food was excellent and the service for being packed with a group of 70 was outstanding. Everyone was very friendly and I felt very welcomed there. Next time I'm in Appleton I will go back. I highly recommend the Red Ox!

“Grear Dinner”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

My wife and I have eaten at the Red Ox for many years. Their food continues to be excellent. This locally owned restaurant has an extensive menu (maybe too big). Their early bird menu is also one of the best in the area. They also pour a great drink. The only negative is that it can get quite crowded especially on weekends.

“Must be one of the top 100 restaurants in the USA”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Seriously. The food is nothing short of outstanding! The different dishes they have are so unique and flavorful and the chef who creates new menu items seems like every week! Wow! Words do not even describe how good the food tastes! A MUST visit.

“Still a great place!”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Have not visited the Red Ox in over 10 years and it is still a great place. Made a reservation for 6 on a Friday night. Went flawless even though I had to move it back twice. Haddock, Ahi tuna, and steaks were all very good. The filet I thought was especially good. Taste and tenderness rivaled just about any steak I have had. Service was good and waitress very pleasant. Keep up the good work!!

“Old Style Service and Atmosphere with New World Taste”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

The Red Ox is such a great place. The atmosphere and service reminds me of the steak houses I went to with my parents, but the food selection and taste is very up to date and EXCELLENT! I've yet to have such a wide selection of food and such great taste in the whole Fox Valley. We frequent the Red Ox and have no plans on stopping.
