We were in Appleton area last weekend and had the pleasure of dining here on Friday evening. It is a very busy place on Friday and we waited an hour to be seated. The bar area is very busy and bartenders very friendly and fast. I had the fried haddock and my husband the walleye. My fish was excellent and... More

I have been to Marks many times but only in the evening., and it is one of our favorite places to go. 7 of us went to the restaurant on the Tuesday lunch of restaurant week, our waitress was obviously busy and it took almost half an hour to get her attention to order. Starters were small but ok, 2... More

Recently moved to Appleton but had previously visited many times with my sister who loves this place. The food and service is excellent. The fish fry on Friday is a great bargain...LOTS of food and fish for a reasonable cost. The Old Fashioneds are really good and maybe I should have had just one...but well, did I say they are...

I've been there several times. The service and food are always consistently good. It can be very busy on Friday nights. The bar is fun and the drinks are great. They make grasshoppers, which are a refreshing after-dinner treat.

My wife and another couple from Appleton went to Mark's during their Restaurant week I'm glad we had reservations as the place was packed for lunch. Service was quick, waitress ( Jody ) was friendly and efficient.

Mark's food is great! I have mostly had the fish on Fridays but steaks are good too. They can be busy on weekends so just prepare for a bit of a wait. We will continue to go here as one of our local favorites.

Mark's East Side is our favorite place to go out for a nice dinner (lunch is great too)! We've been there dozens and dozens of times over many years - never had a meal that wasn't marvelous and service that wasn't great!

Our second time here and it did NOT disappoint. I was truly nervous about ordering the same dish, since rarely are remarkable dishes as terrific the 2nd time around. I had no need to worry. The pan fried scallops were perfect! Crispy caramelized tops and perfectly done, soft centers. Just delicious! I ordered American Fries on the side, which I... More
