The buffet at the Wilderness

I visit the Dells and the Wilderness regularly, this trip for only the second time we decided to eat at the buffet. Some friends that came along showed up a little later at night around 7. So last minute we thought we would give the buffet a shot. As much as I love the wilderness, I would only eat... read more

I've only ate here twice both times the service was really slow! The food was really good and the prices really arnt that bad! You prob pay more at McDonald's and your foods fresh.. they should have a kids menu with coloring, keep them occupied while waiting.. restraunts clean and we'll deff be going again.

There were 6 in our party. We all had the breakfast buffet. big mistake. Lots of choices, but none were great. Favorite item? Bagels & cream cheese! It would have been okay if it wasn't so expensive. Service was okay. Would we go back? No. There are lots of other choices in the Dells.

This was our second year at the Wilderness, and our second time to the Wild Canyon Cafe... apparently I forgot from last year how much it was to eat there. I had seen online how they were advertising that kids eat free (with paying adult), so I think I must've thought it would be cheaper this year. Not to be.... More

This place was OK--the food was average. The best feature was that it is in the resort so you can walk there.

We ate at the Wild Canyon Cafe four times. We ate here twice for breakfast (it was the only place in the resort that served breakfast), and dinner. For dinner, we chose to get the buffet which had a good variety of food. It did get kind of crowd although it was Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. In addition, it... More

We stayed at the Wilderness Resort in the rental condos. We went to the Wild Canyon Café for a quick breakfast and were very satisfied with the meal and especially enjoyed the people who waited on us. It was good enough that we went back the next day.
