We gathered for a funeral dinner with family and was a good choice for a large group for casual dining. The waitress was efficient with attending to our needs and the food was OK.

Good burgers and good steaks. You can taste the difference when they are done over charcoal. Staff is friendly and the food comes out pretty quick. Most sandwiches and burgers come with all you can eat fries.

We had a wonderful Friday night dinner at Cinder's in Appleton. The food was very good, the old fashioned was one of the best and the service was exceptional! We will definitely be back!!!

My wife ordered the perch, three pieces of tastless fish, for 18.00 I walked out of there feeling like I'd been robbed. Never again.

The tenderloin tip salad was excellent. One of my coworkers ordered s burger & it looked a bit dry & he didn't really care for it. Another coworker ordered the tenderloin wrap & enjoyed it.

Having heard that the burgers were good, just had to try it. I was disappointed that the burger lacked the charbroiled flavor that I expected. It was served on a bun that was dry to the point of being crumbly. In spite of all that the taste was not bad, helped I think by the butter on the bun. The... More

Decent selection of beers on tap. Very quick and friendly service. Nice selection of lunch type stuff like burgers and sandwiches. I got the Jack Daniels burger and it was excellent.
