So, you’re coming to the Dells with the kids. Great! You’ll be needing some recommendations for where to eat. Breakfast, lunch buffets and casual dining options all straight ahead.
Playing at the waterparks in Wisconsin Dells requires sustenance from morning until night. Double that for growing kids. Make sure everyone is well fed and fortified for all the fun by adding these eateries to your itinerary.
For Breakfast: With a name like Mr. Pancake, you have to know the flapjacks will be out-of-this-world delicious especially when the pancake batter is a secret family recipe. Try the strawberry pancakes or branch out and order the blintzes or the hot fudge banana split waffle. Another classic breakfast spot is Paul Bunyan’s Northwoods Cook Shanty. Mark our words, do not leave without their famous donuts. At BJ’s Restaurant, homemade breakfast is served until noon seven days a week. Their Howie’s Huge Breakfast and Howie’s Super Breakfast are the first items on the menu, so you know those are good.
Lunch Buffets: The menu at Pizza Pub warrants perusing, from appetizers to hot sub sandwiches to create-your-own-pizza. Be sure to visit their 50 item salad bar! Stand Rock Buffet located within the Ho-Chunk resort features soups and home-baked bread from their own bakery along with ethnic and vegetarian options. At Kickers Buffet, it’s an all-day, every-day style of feast with broasted chicken, pasta salads and soft serve ice cream bar.
Family-Friendly Dinner Spots: Relax over a filling meal at B-LUX Grill & Bar where burgers, tacos and big plates are notched up, plus the shakes are swoon-worthy. Buffalo Phil’s Pizza & Grille serves up piping hot pizza, rotisserie chicken, burgers and delicious BBQ. Keep a look out for the train that delivers everyone’s food - kids absolutely love this! MACS-Macaroni and Cheese became a fast favorite among families when it opened in the Dells a few years ago, thanks to gooey entrees for kids and more sophisticated versions for mom and dad. Monk’s Bar & Grill is a classic and the burgers a must. Finally, Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co. is the spot for deep dish pizza and calzones, plus grown-ups can quaff a microbrew from their menu of 10 on tap.
