“Heat & Eat” Menu on Saturdays

Dear Friends,

Although the Wisconsin Supreme Court has overturned the ‘Safer at Home’ order, at this time we, Connie and Tim at the Big Easel, do not plan to resume dine-in service until we receive further clarification to do so safely. We will continue to offer our to-go Heat and Eat service on Saturdays. The health and well-being of everyone remains our top priority.

To order your Saturday Heat & Eat take out, please call 715.889.1179
