Took family and two friends to my #2 rated restaurant. Cimarolies is in the middle of now where but WOW what a place....Bar, 2 plus ounces in an oldfashioned glass for $2.50 have to do. Dinners around $11.00, Shrimp Scampi $3.50 and REAL wisconsin butter fresh baked rolls.....doesn't get any better.

We have been going to Cimaroli's for many years. We are snow birds and live in Lake Delton during the summers. We make it to Cimi's at least once a week. Ron, Jo and Randy do a great job in the bar. The rest of the wait staff is very friendly and very accommodating. Ron's has a great voice and... More

They open at 4:00 p.m. ( they do not take reservations, so plan ahead ) A big draw here is the $2.50 old fashions, very tasty after a... More

This restaurant/bar has been in the Portage area for years! It's reputation only improves, with the passing of time. If traffic to this "out in the country" setting is any indication of success, you'll know by the crowds, that you'll enjoy meeting friends here, as well as delicious meals. Go early in the evening for dinner, or wait for a... More

Went in for my dads 50th b-day and had a great time. The place was PACKED but we were still seated as soon as we walked in. The baby back ribs were the best ribs I have ever eaten. I recommend Cimaroli's for any occasion even by yourself!!!!!!!

The Portage address hides the secret that there is, indeed, high-quality, affordable dining in a serene location within driving distance of the Dells tourist zone! The menu features delicious flat iron steaks in four sizes and includes all the supper club mainstays of meat, duck, seafood, barbecue. A very nice dining experience!

We had the Crab Dip w/fried bread rounds...it was DELICIOUS! All the servers were courteous and friendly. We go there as often as we can. Can get a little noisy sometimes. The food is always good.

We tried Cimaroli's at the recommendation of many locals as THE place for dinner. Sure enough it was very busy,but service was excellent & we did not have to wait for a table. (I would recommend making reservations if more than 2 are dining, though.) The food was traditional. We were slightly disappointed the crab dip was a cold crab... More
