We were in the area and wanted to try something new so I researched the online reviews and we stopped in to Bullwinkle's Top Hat Bistro. The town is super cute, but this restaurant was a disappointment. The food was nothing more than bar food comparable to a TGIFridays or Applebees. I wouldn't go back.

Seven us us showed up for a reservation for six people on a Friday night. NO PROBLEM! We were greeted cheerfully, were seated and the wait staff was ready fro drink orders. This is a restaurant/bar. The bar is a separate room from the restaurant. This is a quaint place on the main street in a small Midwestern town. This... More

Hubby & I went last week for a rack of ribs and were not disappointed, the meat fell off the bones, just like we like it. We up scaled on the salad and the extra $2 was not wasted as we shared it. I had the baked sweet potato and onion rings (very large and sweet).

Unique decorations make the atmosphere very interesting. Beer selection is good with several options on tap. Wide selection of food and good daily specials. Service is great.

This place has a certain ambiance that always makes you feel comfortable. They also have good food that makes you come back. Delicious burgers, a diverse and delicious appetizer menu and good chicken and steaks. Worth a visit for lunch or dinner. They often have weekend entertainment as well.

It has been a couple of years since I have found a place that serves Buffalo Burgers. The burger was good but it was over cooked. One side was crispy and you never want to overcook buffalo. I asked for it to be medium rare and was more like medium well. We sat in the bar which reminded me of... More

Great ribs and sweet potato. Bummer that they ran out of the beer I wanted (but there was some big festival going on in town, so this may not be a normal weekend). Pretty smoky inside...kitchen ventilation issues (previous visits it was not smoky). Maybe jsut the wrong day to go. But, I will go back again.

Bullwinkle's has been around for well over 20 years and has changed ownership along the way but that hasn't affected the excellent quality of the fare. If you like solid Midwestern cuisine served up in a warm, cozy environment you need to be here. The restaurant is well thought out with a spacious 2-room main dining area (plus another one... More

We go here often for family dinners. Most food is great, salads great! I do not recommend salmon, which has made me sick more than once, chicken lips are good, but grilled chicken is often tough. Ribs, burgers, roast beef all great
