    We were in the area for vacation...we found this place on our 3rd night, it was so good we went back on our 4th and final night! We were attracted to it because of the vast Gluten Free menu (two of us have Celiac's), the fact that they have separate fryers and cooking space for gluten free, the wide variety on the menu and of course the yummy desserts!! They have German food, steak, fish, seafood, pasta...the list goes on...Definitely something for everyone! Our kids loved the calamari and cheese curds, I loved the GF Onion Rings and Deep Fried Pickles...I very rarely eat anything fried at restaurants because it is usually cooked in the same oil as non-gf items which would make me sick. So it was a treat to have yummy onion rings and deep fried pickles--they were both amazing! And they served New Grist GF Beer...our favorite one! My hubby tried the Scotch Eggs and he and my 10 year old daughter devoured that! The schnitzels were great, the perch, the haddock, the cuban stuffed pork were some of our faves....but the twice baked potato was the best I've had in a long time! Desserts....one night we had the Banana Schnitzel and Creme Brulee (both GF!) then next night we had the Banana Schnitzel and the Schaum Torte (sp?) (both GF!) they were so great!! Everyone was so very friendly and accommodating to our party of 9 one night and 7 the next, as well as to our GF requests! We definitely will be back if we are ever in the area again and highly recommend it to anyone!

    Celiac: Absolutely Fantastic!! Dedicated fryer and owner is proud of it which gave even more confidence. Had the gf breaded onion rings and haddock, and fries. Spectacular!

    GF breading in a dedicated GF/Celiac friendly fryer means you can have fish fry or wiener schnitzel or any other breaded item you miss. This place is awesome!!

    I'm a sensitive celiac, ate here with no after effects. Deb our waitress was knowledgeable, but for safety reasons she had the chef-Alex meet with me directly The gf perch was delicious, how exciting to enjoy a fish fry again. Thanks Mark's! I'll definitely be back.

    Such an amazing GF treat. The onion rings were absolutely amazing! My non-GF husband even thought they were excellent and he doesn't like a lot!! They call it celiac friendly. If I'm ever in the area again I would dine here multiple times!! So delicious!!

    Finding a GF supper club can be tough in WI. Marks is a top notch restaurant, friendly staff, and amazing food (GF or not). Been awhile since I had GF battered Perch fry and fish was great. Mark even came around and talked to us a couple times. Only downside is the bar is a tad small - so if you want to have drinks, be prepared to stand or battle it out for a seat on a Friday night. Plus side is the Ole Fashions are awesome and kiddie cocktails are free after the first one.

    Yum! I enjoyed some gf onion rings. ..took a little extra time since they had to heat up separate fryer but worth it to have them. Also had twice baked potatoes. They were great with our daughters too.

    Very great selection! They can make most of the menu gluten free. They also refer to the gf batter as celiac batter. I enjoy coming here for the deep fried seafood and have never had an issue. Plus the food is amazing!

    Staff very knowledgeable in what I am able to order. Food is always very good & at times I am able to have a special of the week for much appreciated variety. No GF menu but many items can be made GF if they know to do so. An easy place to eat.
