Located in the historic Atlas Mill on the Fox River, River Tyme Bistro features a beautiful outdoor seating area on our deck overlooking the dam and the magnificent river. For the winter, you are welcome to sit inside and look at the deck thru the window, or sit outside in your snowsuit – we highly encourage both!

There are 2 very separate dining areas that we are seating indoors – one table in the event space and one in the bistro! Plenty of space to have all to yourself – the ultimate in private dining! Make a reservation for 1.5 hour time block.

Owned and operated by the people behind Fox River Tours, River Tyme Bistro is the sister to the river boats River Tyme, based in De Pere, and River Tyme Too, based in Appleton.  Boat season in Wisconsin is only six months long, but River Tyme Bistro is our land vessel—allowing guests to enjoy the Fox River all year thru!

This is Gus. He likes dancing and long walks on the beach.....oh wait! Wrong post! Oops. ;)

Gus has deep thoughts while he is making your favorite dishes at the bistro. We've decided that these thoughts need to be shared with our followers. Today Gus told us "I'm not the bee's knees, but I am the hippo's hips." (We have to agree, he's pretty fantastic!)

Stay tuned for more deep thoughts at our saute station 🙃
