They just shove you through like cattle. Food is average if that with little selection. After all the hype, very disappointing.

I went to Paul Bunyons in Minnoqua as a small child, We bought a place in the Dells about 6 years ago, and was thrilled to see there was one in The Dells. Bringing my kids there was a lot of fun. We go many times during the season. It's s fun place to go for breakfast and the food... More

Having never been to a Paul Bunyan before, we weren't sure what to expect. We were seated at a banquet style table so were joined by another family. The breakfast was all you can eat served family style on tin plates/mugs. We were served ample portions and didn't need seconds. We enjoyed our meal and the food and service were... More

Every time we went to the dells we wanted to visit, finally got our chance this year.. What a disappointment! The table was dirty for starters, service was slow. Food was not impressive at all.. Only thing that was kind of decent were the donuts. Even the orange juice was bad tasted like sunny D's

This place was way overrated and overpriced! There weren't many options to choose for low carb or diabetic.

My boyfriend and I were in the Dells for an overnight and he spoke very highly of this place. He had fond memories of going here when he was a kid with his family. I had never been (we tried to go when we were in the Dells in February, but they were closed for the winter). He literally raved... More

Love coming here! There was a bit of a wait but they worked fast and efficiently to get everyone taken cared of. Food was good but nothing to write home about but I do like the family style of serving. The waitress' service wasn't the best, but definitely not the worst. It was my husband's birthday and when I told... More

Went here for the first time and was very pleased. We got there early, as we expected a long wait, but were surprisingly sat right away. The food is served family style and you do not get to choose the menu, but the food selection is vast. Donuts (so delicious!!!), eggs, potatoes (the one item I didn't care for), sausage,... More
