Wissota Chophouse - Neenah
This is an outlier it is one of the finest restaurants in the area. Once I tell friends about it, they have never heard of it. You can be adventurous or conservative. The food is always excellent.
New Years romantic dinner with wife
We were very excited to try Wissota - I had heard good things! The meal was OK but you tend to expect more when the menu is priced the way it is. We had a total of 9 people and everyone had similar feedback. We were particularly disappointed in the sides - those that ordered soup mentioned it was lukewarm. The asparagus was "woody," the brussel sprouts were partly yellow and did not taste the way you'd expect for parmesan-crusted as they were listed in the menu. One thing we were impressed with were the bacon-wrapped scallops. I would maybe give it another chance just for drinks and appetizers but overall for the price, I was not impressed with the meal.
Filet was so tender, good service, pricey.
Top quality food if you are looking for top shelf beef, fresh fish, good wine and craft beer list. Everything is ala carte like Morton’s. Service by David was superb with a good cadence between courses. Solid surface walls and floors make it noisy. We went for our 44th wedding anniversary and David treated us to dessert. This is a very expensive restaurant, with very high end menu items, ingredients and excellent chef prep and service.
Thank you for your review, we are thrilled your experience was superb!
Great meal, great service, Amber did a great job.
Will be back. Note, roasted stuffed olives were awesome!
Thank you so much!
Food as usual was very good. Service was excellent. A little high on price, but so far consistently good food.
Thank you for the review!
Selective but specialized menu with knowledgeable staff.
Thank you for the review, we always strive to be the best!
The finest of dinning experiences. The highest quality ingredients properly prepared above and beyond any expectations served in a warm inviting upscale environment. Looking forward to our next visit.
Joseph, thank you so very much for the kind words! We are humbled that you thoroughly enjoy what we have to offer. We look forward to seeing you again!
Food excellent. The beef was very tender. Desert was huge. Waitress was very attentive. Overall excellent experience and recommend it to others
Thank you, Donny! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you for dining with us!
We were the only table seated for dinner, which was odd, but assured (too much) attention from our waitress. I ordered a medium-well filet and asked that it be more toward “well” with bernaise sauce (which they charge $5 for)... When the food arrived, the bernaise was clearly separating, which somehow she didn’t notice until all four of us commented. That went back - meanwhile I cut into my steak to find it medium, to the rarer side. I sent it back and got an update on the sauce - they were “making a new batch...”. Sauce cans out - no steak - meanwhile the other three people are half-way done - I don’t even have a plate to eat sides. Steak comes back out...Medium. The waitress seemed upset AT ME - and said she would take it back again - at this point everyone else is almost done - she said “we are going to take the sauce off the bill for you” - um....no.... I finally told her to keep the steak and take both the steak and the untouched sauce off my bill. I wasn’t trying to be difficult - but when I’m paying almost &40 for a steak, I would like it cooked as requested. I’ve never had trouble obtaining medium-well at other steakhouses. If you are going to call yourself a “chophouse” perhaps hire a chef that knows how to cook steak (and sauces) properly. Note - never received a new plate to have any of the sides we ordered. In all, I was able to have one small piece of bread and a few Brussels sprouts for dinner. She did bring me a scoop of their raspberry dessert (since I couldn’t have the chocolate cake they brought out for my father-in-law’s birthday) - she told me they had “upgraded the birthday cake to a whole regular piece” for our trouble - big whoop since they the charged us for the large piece of cake. She did give me one free drink - which I needed to deal with this disaster! Just don’t go here - plenty of better options!
It is unacceptable to hear this from a guest. Please reach out to me at email@example.com m so I can make this right.
The chophouse is attempting to be in the caliber of a Ruth Chris, Morton steakhouse, capital Grille ... and it is not. The service was excellent. The food was good but not outstanding. Frequently I have an opportunity to eat at some of the classic “chop house style” restaurants across the country. This one is not of the same caliber and should not try to. The price point is inappropriately matched to the food and ambience and location.
I appreciate your review, Paul. We will continue to strive to hit the marks that are desired by our guests.
Yum! Yum! Yum!
Thanks for the review Alicia, I'm glad you enjoyed it! See you again soon!
Best food in Appleton by far! Service was amazing and the food was AMAZING!
Thanks for the kind words! We know we'll see you back soon to try more of the menu! See you then!
Food is WAY overpriced, I and appreciate high priced food when it’s worth it.
Thank you for choosing us for your dining experience, we know you have many options in the Fox Valley. We pride ourselves in bringing fresh, high quality food into our restaurant and prepare in a way that will impress our well traveled guests. We offer a nice variety of shareables, entrees, and sides to accommodate just about everyone. We hope you would give us another try to see everything we offer.
Not a great experience.....The server was obviously brand new and seemed very inexperienced....the Oysters Rockefeller smelled spoiled, and a medium rare steak came out medium well....
Thank you for dining with us, I apologize that your experience was not what you were hoping. We strive to train our new staff to be knowledgeable and will continue to do so. We receive fresh oysters weekly but will look into this situation, thank you for making us aware. We pride ourselves on delivering an excellent product and will work to keep our high standards. We hope you give us another try to prove we are a great place to dine.
It was cold. We were the only guests there for most of time at 6:30 on a Sat so that was strange. Cost is high for the portion and everything extra is an additional cost. The food was really good but when you compare to some other fine dining establishments it seemed over priced.
We appreciate your feedback! Consider joining us again for happy hour from 4-6 to enjoy half priced draft beer and wine by the glass and special prices on select shareables.
Sea Bass was amazing best I have ever had. The place is very nice and the food is good. A little pricy since sides and mains are all separate. We will go back but probably only for special occasions.
Thanks for the kind words, Sandra! We are glad you enjoyed the food and dining experience! Check out our happy every day from 4-6, it's a great value! See you again soon!
Unfortunately the food wasn’t very good and wasn’t worth the price. Friendly staff. Great decor.
Thank you for choosing us for your dining experience, we know you have many options in the area. Please consider joining us again!
Unique menu, delicious Blue Cheese Wedge salad and Pork Porterhouse. Pricing might be a bit too steep for the area and casual diners. Something for ownership to think about. Happy Hour specials are solid! Tremendous Beer List! Overall a great experience! Our server, Brooke (I believe), was top notch! She’s a keeper!
Thanks for all the nice things said about us, Robert! Come back and visit us soon! We will let Brooke know you enjoyed her service!
Very Nice restaurant and the food is excellent. You don’t have to surch for a better restaurant when staying in the hotel
Glad you enjoyed your time at the hotel and in the restaurant, Gabriel! We hope you visit again soon!
Average overpriced poor and overbearing waitstaff
Food is phenomenal, only issue was the server was inexperienced, but she did a wonderful job. The steaks are wonderful, the lobster is fantastic. Crab cakes have amazing flavor and texture. The octopus is very good as well. It comes with a thick piece of bacon that offers a great smoky counterbalance to the flavor of the octopus.
Thank you for thinking of us for your dining experience! I'm glad you enjoyed our unique food. The feedback on server experience means a lot as we always strive to have our waitstaff set up to succeed. We will continue to educate our staff accordingly!
The food, atmosphere and server were excellent. The bill was too pricey however. $100.00 and we didn't even order dessert.
Thank you for choosing to dine with us, Vicki! I'm glad you enjoyed your experience. Please visit us again from 4-6 any day of the week to take advantage of our very generous Happy Hour prices and unique shareable menu! See you again soon!
The atmosphere was very nice and comfortable. The service was excellent, and waitress was very professional.
The food was cooked to perfection. I had asparagus and it was done perfect. My steak, I could actually cut it with my fork!! It was awesomely numinous!! LOL!!
We will be back for sure!
Thanks for choosing Wissota for your dining experience, Don! I'm glad you enjoyed everything! We'll see you again soon!
Wonderful experience. David is a very professional server and does a fantastic job. Our party of six ate outside. The outdoor space faces the corner of CB and
American Dr. The property did a reasonable job with glass on the perimeter for noise reduction, but expect the occasional motorcycle or loud car to distract your attention. A positive spin would be it gives the place a bit of an urban feel.
The food is uniformly excellent and consistent. We have been there 4 times and had many different menu items. All excellent including the seafood.
This is not an inexpensive night out. With drinks, apps and dinner (no desert), $60-$75 PER PERSON including tip.
Thank you for your positive feedback about food, dining, and server experience! Hope to see you again soon!
One of the best steaks I have had in year
Been here multiple times great food and exceptional service. Carrot cake is huge. Alligator bites are awesome.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Glad you enjoy your experience at Wissota! See you again soon!
Absolutely amazing! Great service, nice environment, superb wine list and fabulous food! Will definitely be back!
The food was incredible, and the service was as well. Large variety of tap beer for the beer snobs. Definitely will go again.
Thanks for stopping in! Glad you enjoyed your experience! Come see us again soon!
Steak was average. Scallops were over sauced and over seasoned to the point you couldn’t taste the scallops themselves. Brussels Sprouts were undercooked. Lobster Bisque and Macaroni and Cheese were served lukewarm. If we had given them a chance to rectify things, our relaxing night out would have turned into an evening of sending dishes back to the kitchen. Things were so far off the mark that we will not be going back.
Great experience. Asparagus was tough. Steak was great!!
Service was excellent. Food was just okay, for the price we paid I would expect better. Parking lot is on other side of hotel. If it is raining you will be soaked on the way in. Dessert was the best part.
We started by having a drink outside on the patio which was really nice. I don’t eat meat so was dismayed to learn they were out of all fish that evening. The steaks my friends ordered were just okay and thought they were way overpriced! The caesar salads were very large but not very good and the parmesan tuile was chewy instead of crisp. The beet salad was very good, and so was the service.
I have had aged steaks before, nothing special hear. The dessert was awesone
The food was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed everything from the steaks to the alligator app to the calamari to the carrot cake to the beer and wine. Service was fantastic. I hope people give this place a chance because Northeast Wisconsin deserves a very high quality steak house. Highly recommend.
I made the reservation noting it was my wife and my anniversary. When we got there, no mention of our anniversary. There was one other couple in the restaurant, many tables available, they tried to seat us at a small table next to a trash can. I asked for a different table, of course. Our dinner came out, my wife got a filet, I ordered a ribeye. I was given a filet. They acknowledged the mistake and 10 minutes later I was given a ribeye. My wife had almost finished her dinner by the time mine came. I mentioned to the server it was our anniversary, he said because of their mistake on my dinner and our anniversary, they would give us a free dessert, either chocolate cake or carrot cake. The carrot cake came out, a sliver of a piece, barely rose above the plate. As the waiter delivered the dessert, he said "Happy Birthday". Seriously? It is our anniversary. My wife noticed another table ordered the carrot cake, it was 4 times the size of ours! I am guessing since it was "free" they gave us the smallest piece possible. I asked our server if the portion of our carrot cake was normal, he said, oh no, our normal pieces are much larger and probably serve 4 or more people. The food was great, but the service was sub-par of what you would expect for the prices you pay for the food. Even though we enjoyed the food, yes, even the carrot cake, I dont believe we will ever go back because of our experience.
Thank you for thinking of us for your anniversary! I am very sorry for the poor experience you had. It is always our mission to make sure the guest has the best possible experience. Please reach out to me at 920-751-8900 and ask for Tania so I can make this right for you. We would love a second chance to make your dining experience special.
Extensive drink selection, great service staff, awesome food, and a clean and relaxing atmosphere. Will be returning!!
Food only fair, ambiance mid-level hotel lobby, couple this with a relatively high ticket price equals a poor value. There are better places in the Valley to get a tasty steak.
food was overpriced and not very good. Steaks and chops not cooked to order, even after being sent back.
