A fun breakfast, (but only breakfast) stop in the Dells is Paul Bunyan's-
it's all you can eat- and they make these homemade sugar coated donuts... oh my-
I could just make breakfast out of those, but everything else is very good too- standard pancakes, eggs, etc.
Another nice place is the Moosehead pizza and brewery where they brew their own beers (very good) and you can get a great sampler with 8 or 10 - 2 oz tasters of all the different kinds... and they also have delicious home brewed root beer for the little guys if they are along or if you are needing to continue your drive. The pizza was also quite good, and I'm not really the world's biggest pizza fan, so that's high praise from me.
And as previously mentioned we love the house of Embers- coconut shrimp are wonderful, their ribs are really quite good, as are their steaks, and if they have it, prime rib. PLus they have an extensive martini menu, and serve everything with these delicious homemade cinnamon dinner rolls. They also have cute little private rooms available sometimes.
If you have a hankering for a great burger, there is Monks- reviewed here on RF-
For a lighter meal there is a place called the Cheese Factory that even tho it is (gaasp) vegetarian serves excellent food, and you come away quite satisfied, nice pastas, veggie cutlet parmigiana, and many imaginative entrees. You don't feel like you have been to the land of seeds and sprouts if you know what I mean. It can be a nice change of pace at times.
I think Ishnala supper club may have closed, and they were only open in summer, but they were a gorgeous place out on mirror lake- with more fabulous eats....
