“Wait For Food- Terrible”
Reviewed August 22, 2007

Northwoods decor cute. Moose ears for kids adorable. Waited an hour and a half for food. During that time the waiter did not check on our table once. By the time the food came the kids were asleep & we were too tired to enjoy our food. When the check came it was incorrect, so we had to wait again.

I would not return here. The service was unacceptable.

“large crowd, no trouble”
Reviewed August 21, 2007

our family stopped by here for lunch. We had 8 adults and 6 children. They seated us downstairs which was perfect. It was nice and roomy, and a game room to keep the kids busy. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Plus the pizza was very good. Overall we all had a very good experience!

“Some tips about Moosejaw.”
Reviewed August 9, 2007

It's an okay place to eat, and as other's have noted, it'll pass for ambiance, and the service is spotty depending on your server, and the pizza is fairly pedestrian but edible.

So, here are a couple tips.

Get the coupon book for $25, and you'll get so many discounts and 2 for 1s that you'll pay for the book three times over. Moosejaw is one of the resturants that has 10% off with coupon.

Eat at odd hours here. This place gets mobbed with long lines because it is prominent and does a crack job at marketing. So, eat supper at 330pm, and eat lunch at 11Am when it opens.

The drink soda glasses are those tiny Ball jar things, so you'll need about three each just to make it through a meal. Tell your server up front, as they don;t want to schlep back and forth over and over either. So, they'll double you up on sodie pop if you tell them from the get-go you are heavy soda imbibers.

Try to sit by a window in a booth. The booths are much larger than tables, and you'll need the space for the 'za.

Our family of four (two adlts, two teens) required two full sze large pizzas to be satiated. And we are by no means pizza stuffers. We are trim and athletic people. If you have four, you'll need two full size pizzas, it's that simple.

The salad is good, but a better bargain than getting four side salads at $4 each is to get two specialty jiumbo salads at $7, which have chicken or beef or something, and then split amongst family.

See my review of Cheese Factory Restaurant, down the street from Moosejaw, and you should hit that lovely place of you want some great eating and if the "Jaw is waiting room only.

Enjoy!

“Loved it so much that we went twice!”
Reviewed July 17, 2007

We were only in the Dells for a couple of days and had two nights to check out the fun places to dine at in the Dells. We went to the Moose Jaw two nights in a row we liked it so much. Two of us ordered the same exact meal. Uninteresting but we loved it!!

The atmosphere is great. We loved the feel of Moose Jaw. The food was good and filling. Our wait staff was really good and attentive.

We didn't have to wait in line. Both nights it looked like we were going to have to wait but once we got to the receptionist she always had a table ready.

The dress is casual.

It was a really good value!

We loved the pasta!! The super nachos, garlic bread, and root beer (made there) were really good. The pizza was good also.
