We visited Cimaroli's a couple if weeks ago. We keep a trailer at a campground approx. 35mi away so it was a little bit of a drive for us. We had heard so much about it from friends who have been there many times so, when they asked us to go we jumped at it! Our friends drove, and thank... More

I had been to Cimarolis many years ago for Friday night fish, but that was the old building which had burned down. We found ourselves in the area, in Portage and I decided to try them again. I had the 32oz. Prime Rib and it was wonderful. Wife had the Roast Duck. Both meals were very good. My Wife wasn't... More

My husband ordered the tenderloin and I ordered the New York strip- they were tender and cooked exactly how we asked. The brandy old fashions are a must!

Last Sunday I traveled from Milwaukee in route to Northern WI for a girls weekend. Cimaroli's was the perfect place to stop for reprieve. The drive along WI 127 (Columbia Drive) was beautiful at sunset. I literally saw the sun dance over the gorgeous fields and farmland on my way to Cimaroli's, I stopped to take a video of it!...

We had heard good things from more than one source, but this was not good or the kitchen was not up to par on this night. Steak over cooked, shrimp tiny and swimming in butter that was not really very garlicky at all. The special home fry potatoes were terrible, tasted like they came out of the fryer and into... More

My wife's family live in and around Portage and referred us to Cimaroli's while we were visiting. This review is actually somewhat old since we ate there before the huge spike in interest in Wisconsin supper clubs. Nevertheless, I am proud to say we have been back since. I actually ran into the owner during a baseball tournament at the... More

It was a Saturday we were really hungry but wanted some good meat, we ask one of the locals and they recommend this place. We waited for about 30-45 mins but got entertained with the live band, did not feel the time. Our food was awesome! Flat iron steak delicious! You will not be disappointed!

This place is crowded, noisy, and not worth the time spent driving there. We arrived at 530 on a Saturday night, were told 45 minutes for a table and waited 90 before being seated. Our steaks were ordered med well, arrived medium rare, crispy burnt on the outside and bloody red inside. Mine had little flavor and was tough. The... More

What's a trip to a supper club without a round or two of Old Fashioned's? Could not believe they were only $2.50- tasted great! Value did not stop there. I had a 10 oz Flat iron steak and it was delicious (only $16!). It comes served on one of those hot fajita-like skillets, so keep that in mind when you... More
