Get thrown back in time in this relaxing establishment. It reminds me of a super club my grandparents would take me as child. The bar will have you in ah with its beauty and the food has always been worth the trip. Everything is good from drink to dessert!

I finally got to go to Mark's for a fish fry. Because it is so popular the wait is usually long on Friday evenings. Friday, we went after 1:00pm and it was just fine. I really was surprised at the crowd, but the wait was only to clear off a table. WE both had the perch, with the lunch portion... More

First visit for lunch. I was a bit disappointed after seeing it was rated 3 in Appleton. Ordered the Sausage plate. Two pieces of sausage served over kraut with Spatzle on the side. Best part of the German dish was the salad. Sorry to say. Two pieces of sausage, one smoked and one fresh. Smoked one was heated to dry...the... More

Returned for a second time in December. Food was excellent whether you order German, my husbands favorite, or any other item from a large selection on the menu. Servers were efficient. Bartenders were efficient. The owner is welcoming and offers a friendly greeting as he visits the tables. We have found this to be one of our favorite Supper Clubs.... More

Mark's East Side is one of the classic, Wisconsin "supper club" restaurants. And like the others I have visited, Mark's is a time capsule. The bar and restaurant design were straight out of the 60's.
