Here's a recap of what's opened in 2011:

After Seigo's Japanese Steakhouse filed for bankruptcy, Boneyard Pub & Grille as Sussex's latest bar & grill-themed restaurant. 

The less-than-popular restaurant Hardees closed its doors leaving a vacant building for Rumors Sports Bar & Grill to open. , this bar must be someone's new favorite business.

Open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, this new business really makes it hard to make excuses for not having time to exercise.

I do think Sussex needs Boneyard girll but I also wish we had a Woodman's in either Sussex or pewaukee

The closest we're going to get to Woodman's here is the one that will be coming to Waukesha in the next couple of years. The "sweetheart" incentives that they got to build there pretty much took our area out of the running...still...it's a little closer than the Menomonee Falls one. As far as new businesses...any word on what's going on with the new Italian place that was supposed to be going in to the old Pepino's? It seems like it's been "coming soon" for a very long time.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I'll ask our Menomonee Falls editor about that.

Also, after all the bad reviews of Boneyard on Patch, I'm so surprised that it's winning this poll. Is everyone secretly loving it?
Chris December 30, 2011 at 04:43 PM
@Andy...I meant the old Pepino's here in Sussex next to Anytime Fitness.
Andy Ambrosius (Editor) December 30, 2011 at 04:46 PM
Seriously? I googled it and it popped up in MF, so that's why I assumed. I'll put a Pepino's update on my to-do list and check that out. Sussex JUST got a $5,000 new business grant program, too. I wonder if anyone will soon be taking advantage of it for that location.

Does Rumors seriously still not have a website? What business opens in 2011 and doesn’t develop a website?
Andy Ambrosius (Editor) December 30, 2011 at 07:20 PM
Right here: http://rumorssportsbarandgrill.com/ It's also under their listing if you click on the "Rumors Sports Bar & Grill" title in this article. :)

Thanks Andy. Any idea how long their site has been up? It's impossible to find through Google.
Andy Ambrosius (Editor) December 30, 2011 at 07:33 PM
It's been up since they opened (maybe even before that). I search it so often when I'm writing stories that Google just optimizes my search so it's the first thing that pops up. Crazy, creepy Google. lol. But you're right - the first time I tried finding it was a nightmare. They need to hire someone to get their search engine optimization (SEO) up.

Kim's Canine Design... All the way!!!!!!

I have been to the Boneyard and was soooooo not impressed... Tailgators food is so much better... Rumors-Not too great either...

Did a google search, comes right up for me. http://rumorssportsbarandgrill.com/

I think people should visit a place more than once before leaving a bad review. Your bad review can cost a business money by unnecessarily scaring people away. I've had bad experiences at some of the best places around. Think before you type.
Andy Ambrosius (Editor) January 19, 2012 at 05:56 PM
Carrie, I'm eating at Boneyard right now. SO GOOD! I got the 75 cent boneless wings and fries. Great deal, the wings are perfect, and they have wi-fi. This is totally my new hang-out place.
Carrie January 19, 2012 at 06:03 PM
Rumors is my favorite place to hang out. Best burger you can find in Sussex and the wraps are good too. They keep it very clean and there are TVs everywhere. They had issues when they first opened with wait times but most places do at first.
