Every time we come to Appleton (about 2-3 times a year), we stop at The Bar. Their home-made chips with the Vidalia onion dip is addictive! We also love just about any burger they offer. However, this review is really all about the bus trips to Lambeau. We scored tickets to the play-off game on 1/8 and made reservations at... More

Amazing wings! They are full of flavor. I had the maple bacon flavor and it was part of the Monday special. Service was great and fast. I wanted to get it to go and they had it all set for me in a bag with napkins.

Average sports bar with a nice gluten free menu. Almost any sandwich can be had gluten free, according to the menu. Good service.

We patronized this "The Bar" many times over 10 years. A couple of years ago, we saw the quality of the food majorly deteriorate as prices for food AND drinks increased. We did attempt to talk to managers who seemed to dismiss our observations. On the GOOD side, where it used to be hard to find a table, and ear... More

The alumni association posted "The Bar" as the Wisconsin location to watch the game with fellow alumni. Decked out in school colors I drove 50 miles to Appleton. My first observation was that the server wasn't... More
