“great dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

After we thought all hope was lost to find a great dinner in the dells (house of embers was terrible), we found this place. Great food, great view, loved our romanian waitress. Fun atmosphere.

“Good place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We had a good experience here. It's not really what I would want for an evening meal but for lunch they have a nice selection and the food tasted very good.

“It was just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

3 of us ate here after seeing it a few days before when we rode the jetboats. It's OK but it was obvious that day that that particular cashier had a problem with the English language. He had to go over the order 2 times after we ordered, and each time he had one of the orders as something we didn't order. As we were ordering, a waitress came up to him and pointed out where he got the wrong order on a ticket so obviously he should not have been in that position. Even ordering the simple drinks he had to ask twice. We did however get the correct order.

So by the time the food came, which was a little long, our drinks were empty and we ask the lady that brought our food if refills were free and she said she wasn't sure but would check. We couldn't start eating without drink so we waited. I Can't say how long it was but it was too long so my son took our drinks up to the counter but came back and said there was a long line. I told him go right to where the cashier is. He was told that he did the right thing by not waiting in the line and refills were free.

There is a fairly big screen TV in there so we were able to watch the olympics while eating. The cafe as clean and nice but really small. Wouldn't want to come when busy, which it wasn't this time.The food was good, but nothing to write home about. They also have ice cream that is average but pricey.

“Good and Fresh with a Nice View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I work in the Dells and this is where I go to eat to get freshly made food. There are a variety of sandwiches but I go there for the three salad sampler. They also have an ice cream stand with other delicious homemade deserts. The prices are good and the outdoor seating is lovely. This is the place to go for real food made by real people!
