    The new look of Chappell's on the bar side is pleasant-booths, dining nooks and great bar. Food still great, service friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Always a top pick and winner for friends, family and just for two!

    Chappell's is one of our favorite restaurants in the Fort Wayne area. We truly miss the original location, but through all the turmoil in the restaurant/food industry during the latest recession, they have consistently delivered quality food at a fair price and their staff is always friendly and attentive to your needs. This newest location, on the west side of town, is significantly better than the one on Coldwater Road a few years ago. That location was more like a "factory" restaurant, not a local bar/grill. The walleye is some of the best in the area. Their jalapeno tarter sauce is outstanding (this from a guy that hates normal tarter sauce). The crab coleslaw is great. All in all, a great dining experience.

    We had four amazing meals and great service. We started off with walleye fingers with an amazing jalapeno tartar sauce. Their caesar salad and crab cole slaw is always a hit. Our meals were Jambalaya, Santa Fe Filet, Swordfish special, and Talapia, all were fabulous.

    It was clear the seafood was not fresh and frozen, service was terrible (20 minute wait for two glasses of wine), no silverware available when entrees were served, prices were extraordinary for the quality and quantity ( not that you would want more of the frozen stuff).

    We have had many great meals in the past. The Oysters Casino were GREAT. Ordered Tuna I had enjoyed at their Broadway restaurant. Only one Tuna on the menu but it was different. It was only seared and cut in strips. I ask for them to please cook it to well done but 15 min. later they brought me a different Tuna steak, by then the rest of the food was cold. We have always enjoyed eating at Chappell's.

    Our appetizer was delicious. The seared tuna was what we had. However when our main dishes arrived they tasted like a slightly better Long John Silvers. The food isn't bad by any means. It just isn't good enough to warrant the prices they charge. In my opinion

    Food was excellent. Had to prompt server to tell us about the daily soup offering and specials after everyone else had ordered, but elected for menu item anyway. The evening was about friends getting together, so the delicious food made it all the better. I love the Seafood Pasta dish with lots of succulent shrimp, scallops, etc. I love it so much I almost always order it. My friend had the vegie pasta and said it was good as well - we both had left overs.

    seafood jumbo - not a good choice; i think they left out the seafood. i have never thought the clam chowder was good - some clams but mostly potatos. not the place to order soup. the salmon cake were awesome! very good. just the right amount of light breading.

    We had our family Thanksgiving at Chappell's and all of us were blown away by the outstanding service provided by the staff. They gave our family a sectioned off private area and treated us like kings. The food was top notch! All in all, we agreed it was a great choice for us and we will definitely return to this exceptional restaurant.

    My wife and I are new to the Fort Wayne area, and had diner at Chappel's this past Saturday night. It had been recommended to us, and we both really enjoyed our meals and the ambiance. It has subdued lighting with sand blasted brick walls that creates an old building charm. The entrees were both very good and reasonably priced (~$20 each) for the grilled salmon and the pan seared walleye. I would recommend them both again. The potatoes were really tasty and the salads well done. The only side that wasn't really super was the asparagus - it was over cooked and bit on the mushy side. All that said, we'll eat there again, no doubt.
