This place could be a lot more! The soups are pretty good. The sandwiches are OK but really need some spicing up. The decor feels sterile.More

I used to love just the restaurant smiling moose. So thought I would give this a try. Very disappointed. The brownie was dried out and absolutely had no flavor. The lady that was working there was by yourself and went out to snow shovel forgot...More

This neat little deli is conveniently located right outside of downtown Eau Claire. They have a variety of sandwiches and salads - with lots of healthy options. They are a little spendy, but the meals are hearty. The Thai sandwich is really good, along with...More

The wraps here are generous and tasty and the salads can be built any way that you want. This is a good place to stop in for a quick lunch while visiting downtown. Nothing spectacular but always reliable.

Wide variety of hot and cold sandwiches and wraps. Plus a handful of salad options. They have something for everyone. The breakfast sandwiches I hear are good, but haven't tried yet! Fast-service and outdoor seating.More

It was good last year during my visit to Eau Claire and it's good this year. So I'll probably be back next year.

The fare is typical deli food (sandwiches, wraps, salads). The pricing is about $10 for a sandwich and a fountain drink. I ordered a wrap, and it was good. There is some seating outside so you can enjoy the scenery on nice days.

The food is OK but nothing special. The most memorable thing of this restaurant is its name. I won't return and wouldn't recommend it.More

We will rock your taste buds with bold flavors and the freshest house-made sandwiches, served both hot and cool, hearty salads, wraps, soups and even breakfast bagels, wraps, and skillets served-all-day lovingly crafted by our food team. Every taste will leave you wondering, "Where have you been all my life you big, beautiful Moose?" It's at that point that we will swoop in with one of our fresh baked desserts and perhaps a cup of brewed-on-the-spot-just-for-you coffee or tea. Yup... it's that sweet. Our menu spans everything from the heartiest of helpings to vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options. We also have a kid's menu to keep the youngsters "smiling"!
