Worth the Wait

We were looking for a good dinner away from the Saturday night tourists in the Dells...and boy did we find it! The only negative was the long wait, but it was more than worth it! To avoid the wait in the future I think we would just try to eat a little later. Regardless, the wait was made easier... read more

Though ten miles from the Wisconsin Dells, it is well worth the drive here for a fine steak dinner. We sent our grandchildren's parents here for their special night out without the kids, and they LOVED it, just as we have.

We went here for dinner on Father's Day. It was crowded even at 4pm. We still got right in with five of us. Our server was Dakota, who did an awesome job. I see this is rated with two $$. I would rate it a bit more expensive. I had the 16oz flat iron steak. It was a very good... More

During a working trip to the Wisconsin Dells, a colleague and I were recommended to get a bite to eat at Cimaroli's. It was a Tuesday night around 5:00, and we were surprised to see so many cars in the lot. We sat on the deck and had an old fashioned; the price and quality were remarkable. After our drinks,...

Meets all expectations of the local press write ups and reviews. The Old Fashioneds were mixed to perfection. Our table enjoyed the steaks; the ladies had the Flat irons and the men the bigger cuts. All were done to perfection-nice char outside, med-rare inside. Service was spot on, especially considering it was a busy Saturday night (25 May), THIS is... More

We have been there a lot and the food is always great, but the bar service was less than what it used to be. The bartender always seems to have over served himself. As the night progressed he got worse. The rating is based on the less than professional bar service. The remainder of the staff is excellent and this... More

Let me start by saying that I am usually very happy with Cimaroli's, but tonight my experience was very disappointing. It is Mother's Day so they were very busy. It didn't bother me too much when my medium well steak was brought out pretty red. I didn't send it back because I didn't want to wait. If that were the... More

It's just 20 min from 94 so we decided to try it. We were not disappointed. Tho i don't eat flat iron steak out at all (I make it at home as its a very economical cut) This time I was pleasantly surprised. The steak was tender and prepared correctly. I like my steaks with a bit more zing personally... More
