Best. Marinara. Ever.

To start, this is a great place for a nice dinner out for you and your significant other, but not Aspie friendly, so get a sitter. This place has great food, so it's always busy!

Cimaroli's Supper Club is a 15 min. drive from downtown Dells. Ever since Brad from the Blackhawk Hotel told us about this place 20 years ago we make it a point to go every time were in the area (Reedsburg). My wife and I along with friends will take a trip just to go there for dinner. Yes the place... More

Decided to try based on the popularity and good reviews. We had a good experience. Our server was one of the best we've ever had anywhere. The old fashions were delicious! My flat iron steak was very good and wife's shrimp scampi was as well. Would definitely return!

The blond female bartender is rude and extremely slow regardless how busy the bar is. She rarely makes eye contact or smiles and would rather arrange the glasses on the shelf than serve the customers. Fortunately, the wait staff and the kitchen staff are fantastic and make up for the long dry wait at the bar.

This restaurant is very busy. The prices are very good, but I'm not sure if they cook their food in too much butter or too much oil. I like greasy or seasoned food, but I found it was a little too much. It might depend on what your order. I had a flat iron skillet steak and I will never... More

I went here with my daughter and son-in-law for dinner. They had the famous flat iron steak, and I had broiled walleye. They both said the steak was tender and delicious, and I can attest to the excellent taste and flavor of the fish. We also had spinach artichoke dip with fried tortilla chips as an appetizer. Yummy.

The service, food and value were awesome. This place is way out in the middle of cornfields, but well worth the visit. The one thing I didn't like was the atmosphere... was very noisy inside although there were not a lot of customers.

Can't miss with the flat iron steaks. Perfectly cooked to are liking-medium, med-rare.The drinks are a fair price & music in the bar is a nice touch.

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 by... 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.
