People rave about this restaurant and the food is good, but I personally don't like the long waits for their Friday fish fries and the noise level. Too loud and the tables too close for my taste.

A bit of a drive from Madison but we'll worth it. We just went last week and the atmosphere was great, the service was great, and all four of our meals were excellent.

Very comfy and friendly place to eat and visit. Old Fashions are homemade and $2.50 each. I haven't tried anything that disappointed me. Crab dip is scrumptious, clam strips are the best I've ever had and great spinach artichoke dip as well. Just an all out enjoyable meal and visit with friends.

Flat iron steak and prime rib are always good. The food prices are very reasonable and the drink prices are low as well. They don't take reservations and the wait can be an hour or more on busy weekend nights but we just factor that in when we plan to go there. I agree with some of the other reviews... More

If you like steak on a cast iron plate, you might like it here. I personally don't think it is as good as it used to be, and the noise level in the dining room is a significant distraction.

Our yearly trek to Cimaroli's and it again does not disappoint. We usually go with a large group and they do a great job at seating us together or just splitting between two tables. The service is fantastic and the flat irons as usually AMAZING! I carry around business cards for this place to hand out to people who say... More

Great place! Casual but excellent food and drinks. Huge bar, classy cocktails that are really inexpensive but super good! Big menu, excellent steaks & prime rib. The staff is friendly and efficient. Live entertainment some nights. Big screen TV. The place is clean and worth driving to from the Dells. Have been there a few times... never disappointed!

Went there with my boyfriend whom loves the supper club dinner date. I've been to at least 5 different supper clubs and this one was the best. We had the fried calamari for an appetizer and the "Famous" Flat Iron Steak for dinner. The food was excellent. The steak was better than the steaks I've had at Fleming's and Ruth... More

I am not usually a steak eater. We are in the middle of farm country and I had to order a 10 oz. Flat Iron Steak. The meat entries include baked potato and rolls. I added mushrooms for the steak and sour cream for an extra charge. It was all great. My wife had fall off the bone spare ribs... More
