Excellent buffet on Sunday mornings

We love the down on the farm feel. We can't say enough on how friendly and welcoming Anita and her staff are.

It is like going to grandma's for Sunday Brunch. Mmmm good. $15 for all you can eat. Scramble eggs. sausage, ham, ...Coffee was extra. Service was fast and... More

MAKE SURE YOU MAKE RESERVATIONS as they don't do the dinner show every night depending on entertainment. They brought in a Norwegian singer the night we went and he did many old songs and some funny ones too. The food was OUTSTANDING. Even the cole slaw was great. The staff (even though they're all about 80) was right on top... More

Walking in was like entering a friend's home. The food was fantastic - loved the rhubarb! And the servers were very attentive and friendly. Our party included small children, and the staff made it easy for us to enjoy our breakfast. I felt like hugging everyone when we left. :) Also, outside we could walk around the farm and feed...

Favorite place for tourists and locals! They have something for every taste. Traditional American breakfast as well as the GREAT Norwegian pancakes! The only bad thing...they don't have the breakfast every day! Only Sundays!

I can't think of anywhere else I would rather be than Thunder Valley for Sunday morning brunch. Great food, a little Norwegian music and a few Sven and Olie jokes will make anyone's visit a memorable one. My wife and I have eaten there periodically over the past 20 years, and we are always impressed! The Norwegian ambiance is fabulous,... More

Thunder Valley Inn is a great choice for Sunday breakfast. There is a nice homey atmosphere, and the women that work here are friendly and delightful. If you are visiting the Dells, there is a good chance that you have children - this place is perfect for families. We walked around the grounds where we saw a peacock, some goats,... More

I am so jealous of the people who live in this area and get to have brunch here regularly. The Swedish Smorgasboard was completely full of delicious items. From different cheeses to homemade strawberry rhubarb jam, from the most amazing French toast to fresh sweet corn, it was one of the best brunches I've ever had. A must try!

( My full review is under the "hotels" section of Thunder Valley because I didn't see a restaurants button so visit that page for my full review ) But this place is amazing! It is charming, cute, inviting and has home-made meals to die for! Come on a Sunday morning for their smorgasbord! It is awesome! They have a wide... More

How often do you see goat cheese and pickled herring on a breakfast buffet? Great homemade cinnamon rolls, too, and fresh rhubarb sauce!
