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 about our sandwich in the oven. Then came in and continued to clean up but... 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 their Chicken Wild Rice soup. They do get a large rush during peak lunch hours,... More

We were traveling through Wisconsin today and decided to pull off the interstate and grab lunch in Eau Claire. We came upon the Smiling Moose and it captured our eye because we were traveling with our dog and they have outside seating. I had the Citrus Super G salad that included grilled chicken with pecans, apples, feta, arugula and kale... 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.

Thank you for the wonderful review Tara. Please do try our breakfast options as they are wonderful! My favorite is our Base Camp breakfast skillet smothered in Spicy Chicken Enchilada soup. Trust me...you can't go wrong! Our Mountain Sunrise burrito is also very tasty and healthy to boot. We do offer a full coffee bar as well so you can... 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.

Nathan E, Owner at Smiling Moose Rocky Mountain Deli, responded to this review

Hi Philip. I know this response is well after your review, but I did want to let you know that as of May 1 the deli is under new ownership. As part of that we have completely renovated the interior seating area and also put up a brand new menu. We would love to invite you back to give it... More

Fast food style restaurant with rich menu. I got lost in it. They have very good selection of teas and coffee, too. And yes, they know how to make sandwiches. Way to go.

Enjoy lunch here with friends. Delightful variety of sandwiches and treats available to enjoy ibside or at outdoor tables. Located beside Phoenix Park, across the street from the Farmer's market.

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"!
