or four years of bartending experience and will be a key part of the operation both in that role and in serving. Even her 1-year-old son is getting in the act as he has been known to toddle around and greet customers.
Serving hundreds for fish
Marytown Tap’s dining room seats about 90 and Brian said they have served 250 to 300 people on a Friday night fish fry. People from Green Bay, Appleton, and Fond du Lac have been making the trip to Marytown for walleye, perch, shrimp, bluegill, or salmon. Fish is available at Marytown Tap year-round, and Brian said ordering cheesy hashbrowns to go with it seems to be a popular menu choice.
Brian emphasized that the kitchen is open whenever the bar is open, which is Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a. m. to close and Sundays from 8 a. m. to close (closed Mondays). A popular Sunday brunch is served from 8 a. m. to noon, with the popular menu item being the Garbage Plate—scrambled eggs with anything and everything including vegetables, cheese, ham, sausage, Canadian bacon, hash browns, etc.
Coming soon to the Sunday brunch will be a Bloody Mary bar in which people can make their own Bloody Marys.
Brian said he does a good lunch business with the customers often being contractors working in the area or local business people. The Cowboy Burger and the Jizzy Burger are a couple of favorites, and coming soon will be the top-secret Tap This Burger as named by Kristin.
Tiki bar planned
A carpenter in his former profession, Brian has already changed the lighting in the establishment and plans to build a tiki bar off the back of the building in time for this summer. He also said he would like to re-side the exterior of the building.
Brian also said at some point in the future he would like to rebuild the hall which once stood off the back of the building and resume hosting weddings and other functions. He is interested in the history of the building which was once Steiner’s and plans to put up a collage of historical photos on one of the walls.
If Marytown Tap does someday host weddings again, Brian could provide the DJ service. He continues to bring Tune Time to weddings, doing about 20 per year. For information call (920) 286-0209.
In the meantime, special events are held at Marytown Tap such as the grand opening which was held on March 12, an upcoming Easter brunch, a Milwaukee Brewers bus trip on April 23, and hosting a bean bag league next year.
That all sounds like fun, and Marytown Tap also has the food to go with it—so the business’ new owner is well on his way to making Marytown Tap known as the place for food and fun.
