Went with friends for dinner on a Sat night. Food was good, nothing spectacular, service was average, very crowded and nosiy. Thought it was pricey close to $100.00 for dinner for two...it was not $100.00 good.

Great food, especially the Friday night fish fry but get there early or after 8:30pm. Really great menu other than the fish fry. The service was great! My only one complaint is that there was some sort of nasty seasoning on the french fries. Told...More

A little bit of a nicer supper club vibe. I enjoyed some duck with cranberry sauce that was on special. The old fashion was top notch though, tip of the hat to the barkeep.

This local favorite offers a fantastic fish fry! The German fare is definitely worth taking a chance on. The scotch egg and sauerkraut balls are unique and definitely a favorite. Tell them you are a 1st time visitor for free samples of their unique items...More

We have many things on the Gluten free menu. We have a deep fryer just for fried items and have researched all the sub items that are NOT gluten free. So just about the entire menus is available to you. Thanks Mark

Their phone # is 920-733-3600... ask for Mark :)
Guessing locals stand by the business. That is great for them but that does not change the review. Sorry, it upsets everyone in the area and we are entitled to opinions that may not agree. You cannot tell me how it was or blame me for being honest. Mark's has a cheering section and locals eat at the restaurant more. If it is your standard great it's not mine. Toast to Mark's for having fans in the area. Why does everyone need to agree with the local vote?

You don't have to agree with the local vote. Many of us like it, and if you don't that's OK. Frankly, all that means is that it will be a little less crowded, which is a good thing for the rest of us.
