By Nate Wisneski ( 


Oneida Casino customers wanted more food options and starting next spring they will have five new restaurants to choose from.

Vince Lombardi’s Legendary Sports Bar & Grill will be an anchor restaurant in the main casino located in the east side of the $28 million expansion. A new food court will be added with three additional eating options that will be new to the state of Wisconsin.

“Chicken Fry Fry, fried chicken sandwiches at their best, Boar’s Head Deli, serving up superior sandwiches using the finest quality meats and cheeses and Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Express serving up rocking cuisine including salads, burgers, and milkshakes,” said Louise Cornelius, Gaming General Manager.

At the Mason Street location Countryville Bar & Grill, presented by the American Music Awards will be added.

Ovations Food Services will handle the restaurant management. This is there first exposure to the Wisconsin market.

“Ovations is very proud to partner with the Oneida Casino. These five new restaurants are very exciting for us. We are a nationally acclaimed food service operator. We have 120 arenas, sports event centers, and venues throughout the United States and Canada,” said Brett Magnan of Ovations.

“Countryville will offer a unique dining experience while celebrating country music past, present, and future,” Cornelius said.

“Countryville Bar & Grill is our second. It’s going to be one of the most popular country music bars in the state of Wisconsin.  I think the other restaurants will offer you some additional offerings in the casino that I think will excite all the gaming players,” added Magnan.

Cornelius said the restaurant additions were developed after gathering customer input.

“Ovations is working with the Oneida Casino to offer our guests exciting new experiences,” said Cornelius. “Our players have told us through surveys and focus groups what they like and enjoy, great food and entertainment is what they appreciate.”

Vince Lombardi’s daughter Susan Lombardi was on hand for the announcement and expressed her excitement over the restaurant sharing her father’s name.

“(Our family is) thrilled to partner with the Oneida Casino to bring a unique and quality diner experience to a the great people of Green Bay. My father was synonymies with preparation, team work, and excellence and the Lombardi family is confident that these qualities we will be on full display to each customer of Vince Lombardi’s Legendary Sports Bar & Grill and maybe even talk about the Green Bay Packers,” said Lombardi.

Both Countryville and Lombardi’s will offer street access allowing entrance without going through the casino.

According to Ovations, the restaurants will add between 120 to 140 new jobs.

Along with the new eateries the casino revealed an updated logo. The updated logo will feature a simpler design easier for reproduction.

“While still recognizable, our new logo represents the modernization and refreshed feel our gaming experience will offer,” said Cornelius. “It was important to keep key similarities from our logo and express the evolution of our gaming facilities.”

The new logo roll out will coincide with the expansion completion in the spring of 2014.
