Although it was a holiday weekend, Paul Bunyan's was not overly crowded. Reasonably priced meals and fun atmosphere. Wait staff was transitioning to a new order system, which slowed things down significantly.

We LOVE this place. It's not a trip to the Dells without breakfast here. My faves are the doughnuts and coffee. Great atmosphere. Family-style (bowls of food you serve yourself), all you want to eat. Log cabin and lumberjack-friendly. We can't wait for the lumberjack show to open!

A staple in our family is breakfast here. Got right in and had a great meal. An attentive server kept everything full, and asked often if any more food items were needed. As usual, a good meal.

We make a point to visit Paul Bunyan's for breakfast every time we visit the Wisconsin Dells. You get a full, family style meal, at a pretty reasonable price. And they serve lunch/dinner as well. Don't let the line scare you off. They have this down, and will get you through quickly.

Visited on Memorial Day weekend. It has become a tradition. Had the breakfast. As always, food was good, service was great. Just keep bringing us the doughnuts and we're happy. Everything was excellent.
