Breakfast & Dinner were Good

We ate both breakfast and dinner at Dino's. The Kids loved both. Breakfast was definitely a treat for the kids - fruit and whipped cream pancakes, sausage and juice. I had dinner in the Tavern. A good sandwich served fairly late in the evening. However when in the North Woods do as the Badgers... read more

Good meal as always. We decided to try the steak and shrimp this visit and the shrimp was amazing. It's a decent restaurant in the area with nice and attentive waitstaff. They could improve upon their rolls a bit as they have seemed a bit stale every time we are there.

We were driving in Portage and saw this restaurant on the side of the road. We are so glad we did. We both had omelets. I had the corn beef hash omelet. It was one of the "Best" omelets I've ever had. If I am in this area again, I will definitely come here again.

A friend and I visited Dino's for lunch for the first time. We found the menu to be very extensive for lunch, breakfast, and dinner. My cheeseburger was excellent and my friends soup and salad very good as well. Our waitress Tami was very friendly and efficient. I definitely recommend.

There were several breakfast choices, including crepes. We liked the classic (eggs, large sausage patty, large pancake). The price was reasonable. The waitress was very nice. Outdated look, but it didn't matter.

There was only 1 other table in the place when I came in with my 3 kids (14, 7 & 5). The menu had quite a selection of choices, which was nice. My son had the seafood alfredo, I had their nightly special (beef tips over noodles) and the little ones had something off the children's menu. The food wasn't... More

If you want your basic decent food and a decent price, its a good place to go. We ate in the lounge, which needed some updating but was otherwise fine. The waitress was no nonsense in a funny way. We had a great time interacting with her.
