We gathered for a family breakfast, the line was really long, but moved very fast and a family of 14 were able to all sit together. The breakfast lasted until dinner.

We visited paul bunyans restaurant for the first time and will not return. The rush for breakfast was so bad that we didnt know that they were still serving breakfast after 11am. When we paid the lady never asked if we have been here before she just said the amount we owe and that was it no hi,thank you, or have a great day. We had table issues for our group and no sympathy for not knowing how their restaurant worked. We talked to the manager and she said i dont care what you choose breakfast or lunch but if you choose lunch you have to wait backbin line. We didnt know that you didnt get to decide what you eat. And the food was not all that, i could have made a better breakfast for cheaper than what we paid.

Arrived about 8:15am for breakfast and there was no wait to get in. When we left around 9 (yep, we were in and out that quickly), there was a pretty long line. I think people were just waiting to pay, though because you pay at the register before you're seated. Drink order was taken and they were brought right out along with the donuts. We all liked the atmosphere and eating on the metal plates and metal cups. Kids loved the pancakes and everything was pretty good. We only had another helping of the biscuits and gravy. Everything else brought out the first time was more than enough for us.

If you are in the Dells you must go here for breakfast! Word of caution, this place is not for the light eater! The family style served food is a nice variety and you can always get more of your favorites. They have a nice gift shop. You have to get a dozen of their donuts to take home! Like other people said, it can get really crowded but worth the wait. It's a great atmosphere, but you might be sitting at a table with other people if you are just a couple (in case that would make a difference to you).
