The Flat Iron Steak is not flat but it is delicious, in Wisconsin Dells

This is a very nice, clean restaurant with delicious Flat Iron Steak, onion rings are great and don't forget dessert. Friendly atmosphere, ask for "Carter" or Lisa......Jackie is very helpful at the front desk. Its a must go ...............

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

We love Cimarolis - All the food is great and the staff couldn't be nicer- they all make you feel so welcome. Our waitress Lisa does a great job making our time at Cimarolis the best.

For Sunday evening our choices were Suzy's Steak or Cimaroli's, since everywhere else was closed ( The Owls Nest, Trails, Hitching Post) we decided to give Cimaroli's another try. This time we had no complaints about the noise level, they were not packed and we could hear and have conversations.. I ordered prime rib med rare with french fries, my... More

My Husband and I came here on the recommendation of friends to celebrate my birthday. I am so glad they told us about it! While the Cons were that it was packed, and pretty loud(Friday night, around 6:30) with about an hour wait ahead of us. The Pros quickly and far outweighed them. Yes, it's a bit of a wait.... More

This place is a hidden jewel. It seemingly pops up out of nowhere and all a sudden it's serving you one of the best "flat iron" steaks ever to grace your palate.

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.
