The menu had something for everybody, the food was great, and the service was fast and friendly. I had the eight-ounce cheeseburger with fries and a large soda. I was full when I finished.

My husband & I were passing thru town to check out the Leinenkugel Brewery. Reviewed some of the restaurants on Trip Advisor and ended up passing right by The Rumor Mill so we decided to stop. They had a lunch buffet with pizza, salad, soup and Pulled pork sandwiches. Excellent value- pizza was spectacular as well as the Pulled pork.... More

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
