We stopped here for breakfast on our last day in the Dells. Friendly service and good food overall. They say all you can eat, however the portion size is kinda small but they do bring you whatever else you desire. It is family style, so you sit at tables with other folks. Everyone is friendly

They have great food and service. They are very busy but they are quick to get you in. They give you more than you could ever eat.

We never miss this restaurant for breakfast whenever we are in the Dells. They have an all you can eat breakfast family style that is awesome. There is usually about a half hour wait but you can have one person wait in the line while the rest of you browse in their store. Definitely worth the wait. Don't forget to buy their cider donuts to take home!

It is a yearly tradition that my family and I go to this Northwoods styled lumberjack themed cook shanty. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is top notch.

It has your breakfast basics like pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage/ham and even biscuits and gravy. Of course, also the all important doughnut.

Paul Bunyan also has a dinner menu, but we've only been here for breakfast, so I'll leave that for another reviewer.

Highly recommended for all age groups.

I have been coming to Paul Bunyans since I learned to walk....now 28 years later, I still love it! Its so cool to bring your own kids to a place you went to as a child. We went for breakfast. Its your basic stuff....eggs, hashbrowns, sausages, awesome rubbery pancakes, and the dough nuts!!! YUM. They used to give you applesauce with those delicious doughnuts. Not sure why they stopped that, because it was delicious on top of them and eating it with a fork.

We had a super nice waitress that did her best to keep our 1.5 year old happy. We got there at 7 am right when they opened since our babies are early risers. There were only 2 other people in the restaurant. It was a great time to go. Great service and no problem getting a table!

Would definitely return every time we hit the dells for a weekend. Love Paul Bunyans!!!
