Been coming to Spooner for over 30 years and this was the first time we all tried this restaurant. The lunch and service was quite nice and we all enjoyed our meals. The prices were fair and the food was good.

We have eaten here probably 3 or 4 times and have never been disappointed, knowing though we have stayed pretty consistent in our menu choices. Friendly staff and delicious sandwiches. Easy access in downtown Spooner.

I have eaten at Piller's many times and have never had a bad meal. I always go for lunch. I have tried to go for dinner a few times but either got there too late or they were out of the special when I arrived....More

Fun atmosphere. Accommodating chef prepared my son a cheese quesadilla even though it wasn't on the menu. Nice wait staff. I really enjoyed my meal.

Had a great lunch at Pillers. Loved the poor boy, half a poor boy was more than enough, a third portion would have sufficed. The soup was really tasty and the whole meal was real comfort food on a miserable grey day.
