Average! Pork riblets, BBQ sauce too spicy, different actually! And Rumor mill hard boiled eggs Different, served with sweet chili sauce, didn't get that combination. Nothing was terrible, just average. We come again, and try other things. Staff friendly and good, but not busy for 4:30 on a Saturday evening! Ok

The atmosphere was fine, but we were somewhat disappointed on the food. We maybe should of been concerned when we couldn't find anything on the menu that stood out!? Someone from our party had ordered a Rueben sandwich and discovered meat only on 1 side. They were kind about fixing the mistake.

We enjoy the Rumor Mill. The staff is very attentive and the food is very good. We especially like the noon brunch and the Rumor Mill Supreme pizza.

The server was pleasant but very slow, we had almost 25 people and the one poor server had us all. We were at the joint for 2 hrs total to eat. 1.5 hrs to get food. Food was luke warm. Pulled pork was good tasting. Sweet potato fries were burnt. Good atmosphere and feel bad for waitress.

Five women traveling in the area stopped in to enjoy the Friday night fish fry. Before dinner we ordered the deep fried pickles appetizer and a couple of us ordered cocktails. The coating was very light, but it fell off many of the pickles. My cosmopolitan was nothing special. The plated fish dinner was attractively presented, but the fish was... More

A very clean place both on the patio as well as the various dining areas. Not noisy eating near the bar nor in the larger dining area. Large selection of food choices and I have found that satisfaction has been received in each of them. Had a group of 16 and the wait services were excellent. Food was hot and... More

We were looking for some great Wisconsin cheese curds, but were very disappointed with the quality at this restaurant. Way overdone, with most of the cheese missing from the breading. Probably busted out due from too much time in the deep fryer. You would think all WI restaurants would have this down by using a timer. Hamburgers were really juicy... More

Being a local, I've been to The Rumor Mill quite a few times and always had good food and service. The staff is very friendly and the menu has a good selection of food choices, not just the usual stuff the other places in the area have. Its a good place to go to watch sports and grab some food...
