Nestled along the Fox River just below the College Avenue Bridge Mr. Brew’s Taphouse in Appleton sits between the Banta Bowl and Telulah Park. With floor to ceiling windows on three sides, it offers spectacular views for watching the river, eagles and wildlife.
They offer 48 craft beers on tap, as well as a variety of wines to accompany their gourmet burgers and fresh cut fries/chips. They also offer chicken, turkey and vegetarian burger options, salads and a kids menu. During the summer months you can arrive by boat and anchor at one of their 6 docks for no charge.
My family and I visited Mr. Brews Taphouse last month and were very pleased with the food, service, and of course, the great view. The restaurant’s entrance brings you directly to their second floor loft-style dining area, you can head down to the first floor dining that offers tables and bar seating, or grab a seat on their patio! We were greeted by their friendly staff and directed to sit wherever we’d like. Their menu is almost all burgers but boy do they have options! We all ordered something different; Mushroom & Swiss, Bacon Mac n Cheese Burger, Original Pulled Pork Sandwich and Brews Chicken Sandwich…and you can’t say no to the fresh cut fries with parmesan garlic seasoning! Everything was delicious; my son couldn’t say enough about the Bacon Mac n Cheese and raved about the Dogfish Head 120 IPA, he insisted I try it so I know what I’ll be getting next time we go back! He has since returned a couple times and we’ll be sure to visit again soon as well, because just as their message states; “One visit won’t be enough!”
