“Dinner Theater is Down-Home Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

What a pleasant evening! The food was made from scratch and from their farm. The entertainment was relaxing and fun. The price was reasonable for an evening of entertainment. It includes tax and tip ~ so not as much as it might seem.

Dinner was the most tender chicken I've ever tasted, mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw, fresh corn off the cob, homemade bread with their own strawberry / rhubarb jam and a wonderful desert I'm unable to describe.

The theater is a continual program thru the evening with sing along, some fiddle playing, singing, jokes, etc.

They go out of their way to make sure each guest feels at home and has an enjoyable time.

“Best food and entertainment”

Wow! I don't know where to start. The family & staff prepared a wonderful dinner with food from their farm. They also sang songs and has all of us singing with them. So much fun!

“Quant setting, Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

This place is out of the way. The food is all prepared on site. Got to see the dinner show mid week in May so it was abreviated. They were very hospitable. Especially interesting to those with a Scandinavian or farm background. One of those places not over advertised and under delivered. Thye make you feel like one of the family, Ufda!

“This is a homelike atmosphere with great people.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

We loved the Thunder Valley Dinner Show, and the Sunday Brunch, too. These are sincere, hardworking people who create a homelike atmosphere. They try really hard to make everyone feel welcome and at home. The food is great, and the whole wheat pancakes at the Sunday Brunch are out of this world.
The music is regional and gives guests a sense of the old country. We loved it, and think Thunder Valley is better than ANY of the 'fake' tourist attractions in the Wisconsin Dells. These are REAL people who share their lifestyle with tourists.

“Just like going to Grandma's....WONDERFUL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

We went with a group of friends and had the best of times. Not the fanciest place we've ever stayed...but certainly warm hospitality and cozy. We didn't want to be on the "main drag" with all the traffic and people, but it was still very convenient. Breakfasts were GREAT....honestly, home cooked meals as good if not better than Grandma's. Anita the inn-keeper is a delight and kept us active before we ate!! Don't miss the tour of her dairy farm and one of our biggest disappointments of the trip....we didn't get to see the dinner show... :( . Heard that was really great too. Would we or any of our friends recommend staying there?....Ya sure, you betcha!!
