    Service was great, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was just OK. Nothing we ordered was "bad", but none of us would order the same thing again. The atmosphere also left a lot to be desired. It was very stale and there were no TVs visible from our table.

    The food that was served was great! However we did not expect to wait over an hour for our food. We ended up missing over half of our homecoming dance. Everything tasted great. Just wish it was served faster.

    We had our volleyball team and their families together for an out of town tournament. They had our table set for 23 when we arrived and took care of everything. They gave each individual family their own check and itemized order and were so quick and timely. The food was amazing and our service was excellent. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area!

    Table was a little small for party of 6, but was off in a corner, which was fine in a COVID world! Food was very good, priced a little high but probably what they have to do to stay open.

    Whenever we are in Appleton we seem to end up eating at Fox River Brewing. The location in the mall is convenient, the beer and food are good, and the service is prompt and friendly. We always end up sitting in the bar--this last time I had the shrimp tacos and my wife had the fish and chips. Both were excellent.

    Excellent waitresses, not busy on a Thursday noon. I ordered the chicken tenders, excellent choice and they are huge more like battered chicken breasts. I will definitely order them again, maybe try spicy version next time.

    Fox River Brewing was expensive and the quality of food questionable. Hamburger was quite pink in the middle, chicken tenders were overly breaded and overcooked. Our wait staff struggled with staying on consistent on refills, bar drinks, etc. Overall I paid quite a lot of quite a little. Wouldn't recommend to family/friends based on our experience.

    I would recommend this restaurant. I only wish we had received better service while there. There was a mix-up with the number of people on the reservation and the waitress did not come off as very welcoming. The restaurant itself is in very nice condition and very well decorated. The food was good and there was enough to fill everyone up. I would like to give this place one more try before writing it off.

    I was disappointed that although we specifically told them that it was a special occasion when we reserved and then mentioned it again to the waitress, they didn’t bring a special dessert to the guest of honor. Other tables right next to us got them. I know they don’t have to do it but for the money we spent, it was disappointing that they didn’t even offer.

    I went there for the new beer Red Bobber and they didn't have any. The waitress was rushing us through our ordering process. Our full party arrived and she was there 2 seconds later asking them what they want to drink.

    Food and drink menu was good. Reserved a table 24 hours in advance and stated we had a there year old in need of a high chair; got placed in the tightest corner of the restaurant with no room for that and then had to ask twice for a booster seat. I would go back again, but not with kids.

    If you are looking for great food, fantastic beer, and excellent service, then you have to try Fox River Brewing Company. Their Chicken and Waffles are to die for, as well as their House Chicken Tenderloins, Chicken Crunch Wrap, and their Burgers. No matter what your taste buds are, they have something for you!
