Pat Flanagan, founder and owner of Flanagan’s Wine Review, an award winning Bistro & Wine Bar, is one of the restaurant industry’s most creative owners. Pursuing his interest by building an idea into an innovative restaurant, in 2001 Flanagan began building the Wine Review into the premier destination for food and wine lovers. Based on his vision to create a contemporary and stylish wine bar, Flanagan’s Wine Review has flourished under his direction, and has set a new standard in dining. Pat grew up in the Fox Cities and still calls it home to this day. He has over 30 years of experience in the wine and spirits business. Pat's family has owned Flanagan’s Stop and Shop, a retail wine, beer and spirits store, for over 50 years and he continues to run it today. Much of the success of Flanagan’s Wine Review comes from the knowledge Pat has of the wine industry. Every wine served in the Wine Review is tasted, scored, and critiqued before being placed on the wine list. The Wine Review’s decor, combined with a knowledgeable and gracious staff, creates an atmosphere that is both inviting and comfortable. The Wine Review serves exceptional food, from choice beef to hand selected fresh seafood and more. Prices on the menu and wine list are very affordable. It offers a premium New York or Chicago style dining experience without the big city prices.
