Excellent burgers. Great place for all ages for lunch by the river. Great views of the river, with outdoor seating. I've seen families, couples, senior citizens, ladies who lunch, business men and women - every type of person you could imagine - big and small groups.

Not a fancy place. The food is good, decent American Fare.

The restaurant is beautiful. The outdoor seating is nice with a great view of the Fox River. The service is wonderful (attentive, but no hovering).

The only problem is the food. I've been here a few times and ordered several different things. They hit mediocre on a good day!

Was there for a second wedding. A beautiful setting by the river. Upon entering the building the doors to the left were open and stacked with what appeared to be junk, not a good impression. The restrooms were awful, only 3 stalls and one was out of order. No diaper changing station so we had to change the kids on the floor. Terrible strawberry vinegarette dressing, 9 of us at our table and asked if any other options she said no. 8 of the 9 salads got taken untouched and I watched them take back a ton of untouched from other tables. The rolls were hard and chewy. I got beef tips and they as others on my table were fatty and there was 4 small pieces of the fatty beef smothered in tons of green peppers mushrooms and onions. Burnt and cold twice baked potatoes and terrible veggies. Needless to say we will not be back as this was the second terrible experience and many others stated the same, huge disapointment!

We had a party of 12 and had excellent service and food. The fried cheese curds were hot and delicious while my Pullmans tenderloin covered in a blue cheese sauce was cooked to perfection. The prices were reasonable and a good selection of beer. I would recommend the Scottish ale. If you are in Appleton a must try for any age.

Went with a party of 6, reservations at 7:00pm, mixed group.. Two ordered fish and one wouldn't eat more than one bite. The other ate his only because he was really hungry. It was sitting in the pan way too long and all the flavor was cooked out by the time we were served. One ordered the beef tips special and it looked like they scraped up all the remaining beef tips and plopped them on the plate. It was a good value to get at least two pounds of beef tips. Fortunately his girlfriend shared since she wasn't eating her fish. I got the tenderloin special. It was almost a leftover.. A good cut of meat and would have been great if it wasn't cooked a few hours earlier. Two guys got steaks and they couldn't have been happier. Perfectly cooked, hot, and good cuts of meat.. We left around 8:45 and were the lone survivors..place was totally empty. Won't be going back..sorry to say.. Good service..
