Ogan Restaurant Reviews
I will agree that the menu does cause confusion if not explained. The Filet Caprese Salad is amazing and completely filling whereas the skewer plate on the same section of the menu left me wanting more. There is a variety of portion sizes on the small plate/appetizer menu and this was only evident after trying many of the dishes.
The signature dishes, specifically the walleye and the filet, were perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. I have had both these dishes on repeat occasions and have consistently been impressed. I truly cannot say anything negative about the taste and quality of the food. I would give OGAN 5 stars for the food alone.
The service has been less consistent. The menu has yet to be explained to me and my drink has yet to be refilled. The servers lack that friendly smile and that visit back to the table to make sure that everything is ok. If it wasn't for the taste of the food I would find it hard to go back.

Ogan Restaurant is on the Fox River, which is located in Allouez, on the East side of Green Bay. Ogan has a very comfortable classy atmosphere and offers one of best patios and views of the Fox River in the Green Bay area. There are many large windows that offer beautiful views of the Fox River, whether it is in the winter months with the glistening snow and ice covering it, or in warmer weather with scenic boats that occasionally pass by.
I stopped in to have some of Ogan’s delicious appetizers and a glass of wine. The host asked if I would like to sit in the lounge area, the dining room, or sun room that has a 180 degree view of the river with wall-to-wall glass windows. Since I just wanted a few appetizers, I chose to sit at a table in the lounge area, which still offers partial views of the river. I was quickly waited on and was brought their wine menu and dinner menu. After much perusing of Ogan’s diverse wine list, I chose a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc. I then ordered three appetizers: a Smoked Salmon Crostini for $10.00, a Spicy Sautéed Shrimp for $14.00, and the Queen Bouchee for $14.00. All three of my appetizers were brought out on white rectangular plates and all had attractive presentations. The Salmon Crostini consisted of medium sized crostini that were topped with a creamy cheese mixture of fresh salad celery, fennel, carrots topped with fresh slivers of smoked salmon. The combination of the creamy texture cheese spread with the crunchiness of the crostini’s and the flavor of the salty smoky salmon tasted wonderful. The shrimp appetizer was lightly breaded and blackened which gave an explosion of flavor of spiciness. That, combined with the chef’s specialty sauce, gave it a nice bite of horseradish mixed with deliciousness. I was told that the third appetizer, the Queen Bouchee, is a family recipe from Switzerland. It consisted of nice sized individual puff pastry shells that were filled with diced chicken, mushrooms, white wine, port, Madeira, and cream with five herbs. The Queen Bouchee was delicate with a delightful flavor reminiscent of a pot pie, very enjoyable. My service throughout the evening was excellent. Ogan’s also has a private dining room for special parties and events.

Holy Heat, Batman. The month of June has been out of control with the heat index. You know what I’m talking about, where just walking out to your mailbox will bring on a full body sweat. It totally reminds me of my Florida days. In order to stay cool a gal pal of mine and I went to Ogan Restaurant. What’s so cool about Ogan, you ask? Oh, just their more than fabulous outdoor patio facing the river. Seriously, this patio is beee-utiful. Don’t get me wrong, the interior part of Ogan is great too, it’s just that during the warm months in Green Bay, it’s hard to get me indoors.
Ogan Restaurant is located in the Allouez area of Green Bay. It’s right next door to Jimmy Seas and a hop, skip an’ a jump from St. Mike’s. When we entered Ogan, we were immediately greeted at the door. We asked if we could sit outside with maybe some shade. Even with our demands of an outdoor water view with some shade, we were answered with a smile and a “Follow me.” Which we did, directly to a table with a large sun-shielding umbrella. There were a few couples already enjoying the late afternoon on the patio as well. On busier nights, I would recommend making reservations. I saw several reserved signs floating around on tables and we were there on a Sunday.
The patio is filled with plenty of light-blue wrought iron tables and chairs. To one side there are also some lounge chairs that I saw a couple people reading in. You have a full view of the marina no matter where you sit. The only thing between you and the docks are a cute white picket fence. Ogan also has their patio decorated with loads of flowers. The atmosphere outside is calm and cool, even in the heat. Ogan has a Wine/Beer/Drink list, which gives you more than enough choices on bubbly. Our server was very friendly and had no problem explaining some of their drinks to us. I ordered a mojito and my girlfriend ordered a drink from their menu called Extasy. Mine tasted like it should, minty and refreshing while the Extasy tasted like high class Kool-Aid and was perfect for the hot day. Their specialty drinks run you $6 to $7. If you’re more in the mood for beers, the domestic bottles are $3.25. On tap, Ogan carries Grimbergen, 1554, Spotted Cow, Hacker-Pschorr, Sam and Stella. These pints of deliciousness start at $4.50 and work their way up. As for the wine, Ogan has an extensive wine list of reds, whites and bubblies.
Our time at Ogan was very pleasant, and we will be back on another hot, hot day to enjoy the cool refreshments.

I am so excited Green Bay has a new addition to the fine dining scene, the new restaurant Ogan which also offers a beautiful view of the Fox River. It is located in Allouez on the east border of Green Bay, and it was once the restaurant Marcos Seafood. The restaurant has a new owner, Ilde Nielson, a new menu, an exciting new chef, John Huebner, and a newly revamped interior. The interior is done in an upscale contemporary style; the bar lounge area to the right gives off an elegant cozy and warm atmosphere with a large bar and some cocktail tables in front of the bar area. The dining room to the left is done with a black and white theme. Cafe curtains adorn the windows which face the parking lot and large black and white photos enhance the walls. All the tables are covered with white linen tablecloths including tiny black and white checkered table runners. To set the mood there was smooth jazz playing softly in the background. In the dining area you also have a nice partial view of the river from any table that you sit at and there is a fabulous large patio with two large waterfalls for outdoor dining in the warmer months.
My server had a casual and friendly personality but seemed slightly uncomfortable with the service for fine dining; I will put it down to first time jitters. Besides a full bar they have an extensive wine list. After ordering a nice Malbec wine I decided to start with an appetizer, the Ogan Trio for $12.00. It had blackened tuna with wasabi cream, a bacon wrapped breast of chicken in ancho chile sauce, and beef en brochette with a garlic and herb aioli. From the trio, the chicken was tender with a nice light smoky flavor from the bacon. The Ahi tuna's texture was fork soft and had a nice balance of a salty peppery taste combined with the creamy wasabi. The beef with the slice of mushroom had a nice grilled flavor and a nice complement with the herb aioli. For my next course I ordered the house salad for $5.00. It consisted of spring greens, cucumbers, red onions, tomatoes, and carrots mixed with a homemade Italian dressing. It was colorfully assembled with freshly shaved carrots on top. All the ingredients were very fresh and the dressing had a light and pleasing flavor. For my main entree I ordered the Sea Bass for $25.00 which came with saffron risotto, fennel and olive salad, alongside fresh seasonal vegetables and was accented with smoked tomato vinaigrette. I was served a sufficient portion of sea bass which was pan seared to a delicate subtle and smooth flavor; the risotto gave an inviting buttery welcome to my taste buds and the sauteed vegetables with the fennel olive salad just bloomed in my mouth, delectable. I was pleased to find out that Ogan uses only locally grown and raised products in their menu and all the produce is organic. And finally to end my meal I ordered the crème brulee for $6.00. The topping was properly caramelized and it was a nice gratification to the end of my meal. My dining experience was relaxing and truly delightful. I will be looking forward to coming back to dine on their patio in the warmer months and next time I will order one of the many different steak choices they offer.
