Best Family Restaurants in Wisconsin Dells

I've gotten several messages wanting to know our favorite places that we'd recommend to people visiting Wisconsin Dells so I'm going to put together a few Wisconsin list type posts to help with planning a trip for your family.

We tried more local spots and more variety this trip to Wisconsin.  Kevin likes to find local spots for us to try and there are tons of Door Dash restaurant chain options - Culvers, Dunkin Donuts, Noodles and Co, etc.  I brought groceries with us - the basics of milk, snacks, fruits and veggies.  And then we enjoyed a mix of restaurants at Wilderness Resort and others nearby.  We never traveled more than 10 minutes away for food so there are plenty of good options close by!

1 // Summer House Bar & Grill

They have an amazing patio and are located right on Lake Delton.  The wait time was close to an hour for a table on the patio overlooking the lake when we arrived for an early dinner.  We opted to eat inside and enjoyed their darling decor.  Everything felt very fresh and new.  We got a mix of fish tacos and burgers and chicken tenders.  The food was all good.  I bet it's even better with a lake view. 

Most restaurants have some form of cheese curds on their menu.  So keep an eye out for local dishes!

2 // Dunkin Donuts

It's just up the road from Wilderness Resort.  We Door Dashed breakfast, ran through the drive thru on our way to an adventure and loved having this handy breakfast option when we didn't want to go and sit down for breakfast.

3 // Pizza Ranch

Kevin found this new spot for us.  Kids eat free on Tuesdays and it was such a fun spot!  They've got a fried chicken buffet with potatoes and veggies and chicken.  Along with a big salad bar and another bar full of pizza.  They ask that adults help the kids go through the line and they restock the pizzas nonstop at dinner time.  There was always something hot and fresh to try.  They even have a dessert bar with dessert pizzas, cookie pizza and ice cream.  We all really enjoyed this new restaurant.

4 // Mr Pancake

This was such a fun breakfast spot!  The building is in the shape of a large boat and everything looks very nautical on the inside.  The food was delicious.  It's very busy so arrive early and it'll be worth any wait.  Our waitress was busy but very attentive.  We all licked out breakfast plates!  They also had really unique place mat kid's menus that held the attention of our big kids so well.  There were words games, coloring, mazes and more.

5 // Food at Wilderness Resort

The food is very solid at Wilderness Resort.  We decided to eat at our favorite spots and then try new places this trip.  We love the frozen yogurt shop.  Sometimes the older kids go down with Kevin in their pjs to get ice cream at the end of a busy day.  We like to order a pizza and bread sticks to eat in the room and if you go during their busiest season - Summer - there are lots of food truck options at all the outdoor water parks.

The biggest food star at Wilderness Resort is the breakfast buffet at Camp Social.  Everything is so yummy and there really is something for everyone!  I grabbed a tray of things to share with Leo.  We all fill up and then eat a lighter lunch on those days.  This buffet is open every day during the summer and just on the weekends during their off season.  Definitely go here if you stay at Wilderness Resort.

It was a yummy week!  Message me or comment if you have any specific Wisconsin questions!
