Review of Oshkosh, Wisconsin


You Don't Want Here Trust Me.
Star Rating - 9/4/2019
Oshkosh may be alright if you were born here and never left the city limits. I was born and raised here and moved to Chicago. Stay away if you’re looking for gourmet food or ethnic food, or even “good” food for that matter. We don’t have a KFC or Duncan Donuts. You have to drive to Neenah or Appleton to find a clothing store, bookstore or bakery, etc... There is no downtown shopping all we have are a couple of outlet malls. Entertainment is non-existent other than drinking. The city is not small business-friendly, especially if you own a bar. If the city doesn’t approve of your business the city will file a civil lawsuit requesting a judge declare the business a nuisance for any reason true or not. If you take them to court you will win, however, they’ll just file again the next and every year after that making it prohibitively costly in legal fees. I personally know of several bars that were forced out of business this way. They will also harass restaurants and have cops sit in the parking lot and arrest everyone who comes out if they were drinking.Oshkosh is not the quaint small town city officials would like you to believe. Based on FBI crime data Oshkosh has a crime rate that is higher than 85% of the state's cities and towns of all sizes.
