Our absolute favorite!

The endless buffet is included with your stay here (which I also recommend staying) but anything off the menu is truly homemade and absolutely delicious. Decor in dining room is Norwegian antiques so we asked the kids if they could figure out what all the gadgets were for. Great family time to sit... read more

This is a very nice place. Very homey. My children and I ordered the Sunday breakfast buffet and my husband ordered off the menu. The buffet seamed to have run out of certain items and was not replaced. The items that were there were okay. The pancakes and french toast seemed to be under cooked. The best items that were...

Great food like I remember from my childhood, the wait staff was wonderful telling Lena and Olea jokes. A lot of food that was truly homemade from the bread to the jelly to the deserts. I cannot wait to take the grand kids back for the farm animals and farmers market.

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

Nice place for family fun. Good homemade breakfast buffet. This was the last day for the season and they did not disappoint. I think I had enough carb load for the week. 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
