The Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored “Restaurant Week” April 6-12. Over 880 votes were cast to choose the “Restaurant of the Year 2014.” Customers were given slips to fill out at each of the following establishments that chose to participate in this Chamber activity. The Chamber is pleased to announce that Crivello’s Main St. Bar & Grill is this year’s winner. They have received a plaque from the Chamber to display in their business. Debbie Crivello commented that “it is a great honor to receive this award from the Chamber.” Oconto has many diversified establishments that serve food and each is unique in its own rite. Crivello’s was voted as having the best stuffed hash browns. Other items that were mentioned numerous times were broasted chicken, Vinny’s burgers, BLTs and their breakfast specials.
Brothers 3 was obviously nominated for having all types of pizza, especially the deluxe, nachos and family style fish. Cynthia and Jenny were mentioned as being awesome bartenders.
The Dockside is noted for its prime rib, quesadillas, tenderloins, and awesome fish, especially their frequent fish boils.
Happy Garden is an outstanding choice for its black pepper chicken, crab rangoons, and honey mustard chicken. But as one customer remarked, “all of it is good.”
Irish Greens makes one mean Philly Cheese sandwich as evidenced at the recent Business Expo. But customers also voted for their Friday Fish of smelt, walleye, perch and haddock and chicken wings. Their 2 for $20 specials on Wednesday also got them votes. One customer remarked: “you are doing everything right. Always good stuff.”
The Shiloh Lounge is your choice for Earl’s Specials, Friday night Fish Fries, stuffed burgers and Pabst beer according to its clientele.
Wagner Shell was voted as having the best “late night and early morning food.” But their broasted chicken and garlic bread were mentioned frequently.
Wayne’s Family Restaurant is the place to go for awesome pies, chicken dumpling soup, their buffets and their extensive breakfast menu where #2 was nominated many times.
The City of Oconto is fortunate to have all of these eating establishments with such diversified food. Why not try each and every one of them and recognize them as being an outstanding 2014 Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce member.
