This place is rather small but the staff is great and food is very good! Check the daily specials as they always have something good to eat! We have been there many times and continue to go.

It claims it has the best homemade food in the area but what I ordered just tasted bland. I asked and the waitress said it was because a lot of senior... More

We just moved to the area and are trying our local merchants. Actually my Aunt, who has never lived here, said we should try Rainbow because it is a local classic. We live down the road so we always see tons of cars there but have never had to wait long to get a table. It is small and the... More

Horrible food, very small room everyone is crowded together. Food is cold, you could use the pancakes for shoe leather, I literally had to use a steak knife to cut them. The waitress was nice.

A haven for the workingman's breakfast. Rainbow has the best homemade food in the Muskego area. Soups are made from scratch as well as the rest of their fare. Consistently good specials every night..

this restaurant is very tiny but the food is very good. My family and I have been here for breakfast several times and for lunch a few times, also good food and not expensive. The place reminds me of "old time mom and pop"establishment. I would recommend this place for a quick meal and expect to wait to get your... More

Awesome breakfast stop. Small place. A little slow to get food but worth the wait. The service is fantastic!

This has been a dining experience for me since I was a teenager and that has been more than 50 years. The good things stay forever. The food was good then and it still us today, go and enjoy the Rainbow.

This a Ma and Pa quaint diner. Service and food tops. Something for everyone. We stopped in for a spur of the moment late breakfast. Had lunch instead and were very happy with what we ordered as well as what we saw come out of the kitchen for other patrons. Will be back !
