We went for brunch and ended up eating in the basement. Kitsch at it's finest. If a group is meeting here, I'll go, but it's not going to be a place I recommend or select on my own.

We stopped on a Sunday for brunch. Yes, they had chicken, fish, vegetables potatoes and gravy. You have to like eating in a basement...no windows, no atmosphere, linoleum floors The food was ok at best. Poor presentation, no flavor. Bottom line we will not be returning. The service was good. The dirty plates were cleaned up, beverages were refilled.

When I moved to Appleton from California we frequented most of the places known for Friday night fish. The Darboy Club, by far, was our favorite and we return often. No frills atmosphere with excellent fish.

We had our June wedding at the Darboy Club and couldn't have been more happy with how everything turned out. They were incredibly easy to work with and were willing to accommodate any special requests. If you are looking for a place that is easy to work with, no non-sense (ex. don't have food/beverage minimums where you need to add... More

I have been coming here for years. I would guess I have been to 25 weddings and the food is always good. I have also been their for the buffet on Wednesday, Friday or Sundays and it has almost always been bad. On the bad days everything is old and dry. Even when they just started serving. The whole place... More

Friday night fish to Sunday buffet will keep you coming back for more. Prices are reasonable and casual dress attire. Great for large families or just for two.

Able to make reservations on a Friday night. This is helpful when you are bringing a larger group here for dinner. Ordered the perch. They also have a smaller plate version. Really liked the perch. Also ordered the clam chowder. It was very salty.

I'd avoid the buffet, no selection and mediocre food.This is where famous "Darboy Chicken" began, but it no longer that place. I'll stick to attending weddings there.
