    The Easter Brunch was one of the best ones we attended. Excellent all around! The waiters were on top of everything, so friendly, and truly deserve a raise. The one thing we really DID NOT like was the later time (2:30), which was fine, but we're from Fond du Lac meeting friends after church in Oshkosh, so we just went on over to the restaurant early and wanted to sit at the bar and wait, but they would not let us? They told us the bar wasn’t open and we would just be able to stand around, but we might be in the way. WOW, that is really weird.... so we left and went to Mineshaft and waited there and had a conversation with the people we were with. It was such an inconvenience that we would've cancelled the reservation with Fox City Brewery if Mineshaft had room for us at their buffet. As it was, they had no room, so we had to go back to Fox City Brewery. The food was just great, but just not worth going back again if the same situation happens next year.

    The food was excellent and their home brew beers are delicious. The waiter was attentive and polite, and the food came fairly quick. The ambiance was nice with a river view and a lighted footbridge. All in all, an excellent dining experience.

    A variety of good food; good service. Added more interesting salads to the menu. Beer is good. Owners are friendly and involved. Can handle really large groups. Excellent outside riverfront area with domes for winter. Interior is a little austere but nice view of the river from most seats.

    Stopped here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon of Memorial weekend. Sat outside. Perfect day! Started with the cheese curds. They were good and plentiful but should have included more Ranch. One small cup wasn’t enough. For lunch I had the brisket tacos, wife and daughter each got the grilled chicken sandwich, and son had a bacon cheeseburger. Everyone else’s food was good, fries were fresh and hot, but my brisket tacos were almost inedible. I’m guessing they were part of the previous nights’s burnt ends dinner special as they were cooked to death, very dry and tough, and somehow lacking even flavor. I drown two of the tacos in salsa just to get enough moisture in them to be eaten but gave up even trying to eat the third one. My advice would be to skip any of the BBQ offerings during the lunch service!

    Server was nice but brought our bill without asking if we wanted anything else. We then ordered another drink and after a long delay brought us our drinks with one that was not ordered. This was corrected and everything was good. We enjoyed our dinner and will definitely be back.

    Good experience. Good food. Waitress was excellent and cute as a button. Very hard working. The service was excellent. Wish we could have been there in the summer to enjoy the outdoor seating because it looked lovely. There seemed to be a homecoming kind of event going on with high school students but they were happy, pleasant, and having a good time. The parking lot was packed when we arrived but the restaurant did not seem overly crowded. We had an enjoyable evening.

    We had a wonderful experience at FRBW! The staff was wonderful, the food and drinks were great! And we got super lucky and there was a dome open for walk ins so they offered it to us. We thought that was super special as they knew it was our anniversary from the note on the Open Table reservation. We would definitely go back!
