We were very pleased with the easy parking across the street from the restaurant. There were not many customers there due to being "Black Friday" & shoppers likely being on the other side of the City at the outlet mall. Our beverages were quickly delivered, orders taken & brought to our table which was near the kitchen where we could... More

Very small place that doesn't take reservations so we had an hour plus wait for our party of 7. The bartender was attentive and friendly in spite of being busy. Mixed drinks were good and affordable. Our seating was a bit tight but manageable. Food was pretty good although the fried seafood was a bit too fried. Nice service and... More

We ate at Jansen's on a whim. I'm attracted to neighborhood pubs and the mystery that lies behind the doors of them. This one is great! Clean, quaint, friendly. We wanted to enjoy lunch somewhere new (to us) in Oshkosh and landed at Jansen's. We're so glad we did. The bartender and waitress were both very nice; the regular (patron)... More

It has been many many years since I had the opportunity to eat here last. With a group of four we waited for well over an hour and a half to be seated. The food was not as well-made as it has been in the past. The fish didn't even taste like haddock, the salads were so minimal and our... More

We had not been to this restaurant for years. It was recently bought by a new owner who made positive changes. It is a best kept secret in Oshkosh...old world dining! Friendly owner/bartender, good drinks and homemade food at very reasonable prices! The menu is versatile...something for everyone: great soup, sandwiches, dinners, specials, ribs, fish, roasted chicken with real mashed... More

Busy place but well worth the wait!! Two of us ordered their Tenderloin Sliders...they were so tender and tasty......best I've ever had!!! You can never go wrong ordering "Mary's" soups. Last night the soup was Creamy Cheesy Broccoli and it was delicious!

A group of six of us get together every Saturday for lunch and Jansen's is where we always go. The waitresses are so friendly and seem to know our personal tastes as far as food and drinks go. The food is always great! The soup on Saturday was Beefy Creamy Mushroom and it was to die for!!! Mary makes all... More

Great atmosphere. Friendly staff and friendly regular local patrons made the place feel like home. Exceptional food and drink at reasonable prices. We discovered this place by accident while atttending EAA Airventure. Recommended by a Main St bartender, turns out to be a diamond in the rough. Not so impressive outside, but it hits a home run inside. So good,... More

It had been years since we visited this little gem. So glad my husband suggested it. Wonderful atmosphere, great food and the new owners are friendly and accommodating. They really care that you are happy and satisfied. We plan to go back soon.

Jansen's has been a Home Town favorite for generations but it slowly had gone down needing a Fresh "Redo". The New Owners have put the sweat and tears into a resurgence of this Icon. They have modified the menu and brought their personal charm to this Great spot. The quality of food is top notch. Service is as personal as... More
