If you want a good burger or steak sandwich, this is a great place to go although I feel the prices are a little high for what you get. You can find a better deal elsewhere. The service was exceptional so we'll probably be back.

This is the best bar & grill in Appleton. They offer really good hamburger and fish for Friday. But the fish price is quite expensive compare with other restaurants. Hope that help !

We gathered for a funeral dinner with family and was a good choice for a large group for casual dining. The waitress was efficient with attending to our needs and the food was OK.

Good burgers and good steaks. You can taste the difference when they are done over charcoal. Staff is friendly and the food comes out pretty quick. Most sandwiches and burgers come with all you can eat fries.
