General Note: Location is the greatest asset of Fratello's Riverfront. As the name suggests, it sits on the bank of the Fox River in downtown Appleton. The building is a lovingly restored early 1900s paper mill.

This is the most pleasant place to enjoy a beer outdoors in the Appleton area, and perhaps in all of Northeastern WI. Last summer, two businessmen from Bavaria sat beside me outdoors. They gave the setting two thumbs up, and seemed pleasantly surprised to find such a place in this part of the US (where outdoor seating is only just catching on).

Bonus: Fratello's is a pleasant river stroll away from the Stone Cellar Brewpub.

Beer Selection: Fratello's Riverfront serves several of the beers produced by its brewery, Fox Valley Brewing. The selection usually includes a honey wheat, stout, scotch ale, pilsner, light beer, and a seasonal. The beers are OK, consistent, but nothing to write home about.

Atmosphere: The location is quite enjoyable year-round. During warm months, the outdoor seating is excellent, offering great river views. There are locks, trestels, mature trees, and bridges that add interest to the river. The water fowl seem to enjoy the area, too. The indoor seating offers great views through large windows. The building actually sits over the river.

Service: The service is always attentive, and usually quite friendly. Don't expect your server to know much about beer, however. Also, the outdoor seating closes earlier in the evening than it should. Last year, service ended at dark. Bummer.

Food: Quite good. The menu ranges from typical pubfare to unusual pasta and seafood dishes. I've liked everthing I've had there -- and I'm pretty picky.
