Phenomenal

Absolutely amazing! It's very rare that you find a place that has mouthwatering food and an affordable price. Even cocktail prices seem to be from a 1990's time capsule. If there was only one restaurant that I could choose to eat at for the rest of my life, it would be Cimaroli's

Cimaroli's is a landmark. Been around forever. Burned and rebuilt. But no matter how good the food is.. It is the loudest, noisiest place I have ever been. We went for our anniversary. I can't even remember what we ate because the place was so distracting.

We went at 6PM on a Friday night and had an hour wait but with $2 & $2.50 cocktails who cares. We found everyone else waiting to all be very friendly and it made the wait even better. The bar staff was fast and attentive. Our waitress was really nice and understanding of our one kid that was peopled-out from... More

Food only average but service still good. Restaurant way to noisy and cramped.Not a bad choice if you have limited options.

This was our second visit to Cimarolis as we are not from the area but we were pleased to find the food even better than we remembered. We visited on a friday and planned to go around 8 in order to miss the crowd. The plan worked and we were seated right away, hostess and server were pleasant. Warm rolls... More

Wonderful steak and prime rib. Fish dinners are great too. Especially liked the walleye. You cannot beat the drink prices. Brandy old fashion for $2.50.

Great food! Only drawback is the acoustics in the restaurant. It's loud. In the summer there is outside seating. Very nice.
