Went here as a family for fish, not much went well. Salads and Soups came out literally about a minute before our meal came. I had the all you can eat Chicken and Fish combo and it was Chicken reheated which was not hot. It had the taste of old fryer oil and was just not good. Soup was Luke... More

One Sunday morning we thought we would try something different for breakfast. We were seated immediately, ordered and waited and waited and waited. Finally the waitress said--oops, sometimes the cook loses the orders. We actually had to be somewhere that morning. By the time we got our food we had to gulp it down. Don't get me wrong-portions are huge,... More

It feels like the Pine Cone has always been here. A truckers favorite with great breakfast, huge portions and cinnamon rolls as big as your fist. I had eggs and little smokie sausages. My personal favorite. Save room for dessert!

Very fast and inexpensive. Right off of the interstate. Get breakfast or anything from the bakery. The hash browns are so good!

Stopped by for cookies, and a Pershing. Grabbed an elephant ear. As the photo indicates, it would take up a large pizza box. Absolutely delicious!

We used to make an effort to stop at Pine Cone in DeForest looking forward to perfectly seasoned, home style cooking. Last stop was different. Huge portions, not so much tast First, giant white bread served as a dinner roll was new. The service was slow and not as friendly. A usual half hour stop turned into an hour. We... More

This was my second visit to the Pine Cone Restaurant in DeForest, WI, and I'm happy to say that this visit was just as good as the last! If you're on I90/94 Heading West, get off at the DeForest (Hwy 51) exit and turn right. You'll see a Shell gas station, pull into their lot, the Pine Cone is right... More

The food is decent. Breakfast was ok, they don't have omelettes though. If you get the scramble, be ready for a hefty serving of hollandaise. The burgers are really good. All in all, for the price, you get a lot of food

Thank Jon N
