If you want great food that isn't fried then this is the place. You won't feel guilty eating it-well except for the crazy desserts. And then there is the view. This place overlooks the wis. River and hardly any Dells restaurants can say that. We stop at River Moon whenever-vacation or passing thru. It's one of those places you are... More

Fresh and delicious little lunch deli in the heart of the Wisconsin dells overlooking the river and dam. We ate sandwiches and salads and watched the boats take off and dock below us.

Fantastic Salads, offer a large selection of sandwiches. My husband was very impressed with the picture perfect delicious Roast Beef Sandwich. I had the Salad Sampler which consists of large portions of three salads and a delicious slice of their homemade lemon Bread. The restaurant is super clean. The Patio overlooks the Beautiful wisconsin River.

I got the daily special for $6 which was a pulled pork wrap with cheese and a side. I chose the tortellini spinach salad as my side. The pork was very dry but the salad was really remarkable. I wish I would have gotten the pasta salad as my main meal. Husband got the chicken salad sandwich with a fruit... More

Dessert bread that came with fruit salad was very good. Portion sizes were vastly inconsistent within our party of 12, though. Place was not at all busy on a saturday night. Order at the counter and they bring you your food. Not great but not bad.

We really enjoyed our meal at River Moon Cafe. Staff was very nice. Food was excellent (however the red sauce on the spaghetti was too tomato-ey). Good view when sitting on the deck by the river. Suicide bars are a MUST try. They will accept your credit card if you order a minimum of $5. We ordered and paid for... More

Have only been once and had a turkey sub sandwich. Fresh ingredients and very good bread (does not have the dried out edges that the chain restaurants often serve in my experience). I enjoyed the al fresco dining though it's a bit rustic out on the deck/balcony. Has a view of the river/dam.

My boyfriend and I were in the Dells for a weekend getaway and decided to check out the River Moon Cafe. The place is gorgeous, and the river side tables are perfect for a little romantic lunch! There are sandwiches, salads, and noodles. I went with chicken salad on their home baked tomato basil bread and the boyfriend had spaghetti... More

Google directions are wrong, they led us to an cemetery. The River Moon Cafe is across from Walgreens next to the Mexicali rose and Dell boat tour docks just under the falls at the intersection of Highway's 16/13/12 The good: Absolutely as fresh as it gets. The bread was oven soft and the Pasta was perfect. The Blueberry bread roll... More
