Description: Paul Bunyan’s Restaurant welcomes your family to our family. For more than 50 years, the Tonne Family has been opening their doors in Minocqua and Wisconsin Dells to generations of families. Now a Wisconsin tradition, it seems no vacation is complete without at least one visit to Paul Bunyan’s.

“I think this is a must for first timers.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2015 NEW

This is an experience you'll want when you stay at the dells. It is family style all you can eat palooza. Just tell them what you want and they keep bringing it until it you roll out the door! The decor is realistic and you do kinda feel like Paul Bunyan.

“Busy and loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2015 via mobile

Good was ok. The gift shop was fun for browsing while we were waiting to be seated. Restaurant is crowded and loud and you feel like you are sitting on top of other dinners.
