    Our second visit to Fratellos before a show at the Appleton PAC. Food and service were both excellent, and you cannot beat the location and view of the river/dam. Great menu, great atmosphere, and super service. Thanks for another great experience!

    First time at Fratello’s and will not be the last. Outstanding atmosphere, service and food. We have had the good fortune to enjoy many fine restaurants and Fratello’s is as good or better than all of them.

    My experience at Fratellos was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed by the friendly staff and enchanted by the stunning waterfront views. The ambiance was perfect for a relaxed and enjoyable dining experience, and I couldn't wait to explore their menu. Their cocktail selection was impressive, and I found myself drawn to their cool concoctions that perfectly complemented the serene setting. The extensive wine menu offered a variety of options to suit different preferences, ensuring everyone in our party found something to enjoy. For appetizers, we indulged in the cheese curds and Krunch tenders, which set the stage for a delightful culinary journey. The White chicken chili soup served as a comforting side, adding depth to our meal. Both the Elk & Bison burger and the grilled chicken and Brie dish were flavorful and satisfying choices for our entrees. What truly stood out was the impeccable service provided by our server. They were attentive, friendly, and offered excellent recommendations that enhanced our dining experience. Each dish arrived at our table at the perfect temperature, showcasing the kitchen's dedication to quality. Overall, Fratellos exceeded my expectations, delivering not only delicious food but also a memorable dining experience. I can't wait to return and explore more of what they have to offer.

    This is a restaurant with character and good food. Menu is very complete, cocktails were well Made and our server was very accommodating and efficient. The lemon basil vinaigrette dressing was so delicious and my salmon dish was very tasty , yet maybe a little boring looking on the plate. Friends had pasta dishes and all were good- only my friends pizza was warm rather than hot. Good flavors and very nice evening.

    A favorite place to eat in Appleton. Good food. Good service and beautiful space to talk and enjoy friends and family. The bar is worth arriving early and sipping a specialty cocktail to take in the view of the dam and the fast moving water. The glass art throughout the space is pretty cool.

    We had a reservation and were seated right away. The server was polite, food and drinks were excellent and brought in a reasonable amount of time. View probably would have been really nice since it's right on the river but it was dark. The server heard my husband mention that we should get dessert since he didn't get me a birthday cake so he brought our dessert with a big sparkler in it :).

    We happened upon Fratellos on Open Table when we were in town for a day. The service was top notch (hostess, server, runner & manager included), the view an unexpected treat, the atmosphere warm & inviting, and the menu impressive (including a myriad of GF options). My food allergies were addressed with the utmost respect & obvious knowledge/training. We'll make other day trips to the area in the future just to revisit Fratellos!

    Great ambience initially with a 4:30 booking time. By the time we left an older set of couples that had been at the bar were seated beside us and quite loud. Server was excellent and kind, food was fresh, tasteful, and worth every penny. The view is amazing.
